About Me
Starting a Business: Finding the Right Location

After years of saving and planning, I finally opened my own retail establishment. Before I could do so, I spent a lot of time looking at real estate options. With the help of a commercial property management firm, I did find a storefront with a great location, and enough room for my business.

I'll tell you more about how we worked together to find a place that met all my needs, including the rental cost.
