Chestertons has significant experience in sales and leasing for commercial assets throughout the Middle East and North Africa region.
For commercial leasing, we work closely with developers and investors to secure tenants ahead of completion of new buildings and schemes, and we maximise income from existing properties by keeping vacancies to a minimum.
For commercial sales and purchases, we optimise client exposure to the target audience, undertaking negotiations on their behalf and liaising with legal advisors to ensure transactions are completed within agreed timelines.
We work with clients to help them achieve the best price when buying or selling property assets, from individual offices,to whole buildings, warehouses, schools, staff accommodation, shopping malls and complete investment portfolios.
We manage the entire process from giving a realistic market appraisal through to marketing and selling the property. We negotiate the price and terms between buyer and seller, ensuring that the sale/purchase progresses as quickly as possible and that all issues are rapidly resolved.
We work proactively with landlords to ensure that the best rent and terms are achieved while helping protect their investments with our stringent compliance processes.
With a full range of services available, including complete management, we can take care of all day-to-day management of our landlords’ rental portfolios, removing stress and hassle.
