If you ask most companies to describe their most important strategic advisors such as their attorneys, investment bankers and accountants, you usually hear adjectives like “smart”, “expert”, “tenacious”, “ethical”, “creative” and “hard working”. As real estate can often represent one of a company’s biggest line item expenditures, we think they ought to be saying the same things about their real estate broker. We are extremely proud of what our clients have to say about Tactix. If you're not raving about your broker, maybe you should be talking to us.

“Initially, we were not convinced that we needed a broker for our Philadelphia space requirement. However, after seeing Tactix in action on a shared client, we knew that we wanted them on our side when our lease came up for renewal. With Tactix as part of our team, we achieved the best solution.”

“This was an extremely important decision for our firm. That's why we turned to Tactix. Their understanding of law firms and law firm cultures were invaluable to us in this transaction. The fact that Tactix was actively in the market with comparable tenant requirements gave us the confidence that we were seeing proposals that truly tested the limits of the market and that we ultimately got the best deal possible. We achieved all of our stated objectives and couldn't be happier with the outcome or our representation.”

“We have used Tactix on a number of assignments over the years. The effort they put forth on this headquarters decision showed us their continued commitment to accomplishing our objectives. They left no stone unturned and worked tirelessly until the day our signatures went on the lease.”

“I often hold Tactix out as an example to consultants we use in other areas as a company who really 'gets into the shoes and socks' of their customers. They have the same sense of urgency about the project as we do, concern about the same issues, and are a vigorous and effective advocate on our behalf. It is the combination of their knowledge of the marketplace, skilled negotiation techniques, and credibility within the real estate community that makes them so effective.”

“We needed much more than typical brokerage services for our headquarters project. That's why we chose Tactix. Their creativity, comprehensive financial analysis and extensive experience with large, complex real estate transactions – from both the legal and business perspectives—made them a valuable part of our project team.”

“There is no comparison between Tactix and other brokers. Tactix took the time to understand our needs and develop a well thought out strategy. They worked with us for two years, insisting we wait for the right deal even though this worked against their financial interests. We are thrilled with the outcome and are glad Tactix will be in our corner going forward.”

“I wanted to write you to let you know how much all of us at the Foundation appreciate the extraordinary amount of work that you put into a successful completion of our [real estate transaction]. Your wise counsel, persistence and effective negotiating enabled us to arrive at a fair and balanced agreement both financially and in regard to preserving our options for the future.”

“Tactix quickly provided the impartial advice we needed to identify the best solution for K&S. Their creativity in developing new alternatives enabled us to generate real competition for our project. The result: we got the best building for our new world headquarters at a lower price.”

“Working with Tactix was much more than a pleasure. For me it was a wonderful learning opportunity in the art of negotiation. I greatly appreciated your responsiveness, your attention to detail, your creativity in finding solutions, and your ever present focus on the goal of getting the best lease deal possible for the long term. Your great work will benefit the partners of Potter Anderson for the next fifteen years. Thank you is totally insufficient, best wishes!”

“Tactix parachuted into Buffalo at the 11th hour and quickly uncovered two new and extremely creative alternatives for us. They then re-opened the competition for our requirement and saved us millions of dollars. We're thrilled with the outcome.”
