A home to a wide variety of industries, including many of the top companies in their field, Washington State boasts one of the most diverse, energetic and attractive environments to develop and grow your company. A key aspect of Washington’s success is the impact this job growth has had on the local real estate market. Commercial real estate needs will vary by lines of business. More goes into the lease and purchase of space in Washington State than most people would consider. For this reason, it is important to engage a real estate professional – someone who is intimately familiar with the processes and strategies of commercial real estate – to ensure that nothing is left out in evaluating business needs. Here at CBRE we have groups that cover the needs for office, industrial, retail, land and multifamily properties, as well as groups that deal with specialties – hotels, medical, debt and structured finance, and project management, to name a few. Each line of business holds clients who may want to lease, buy and/or sell a space.
