OfficeSpace.com Launches New Free Service That Provides Businesses in Portland, Oregon With a Better Way to Find and Lease Office Space
Also offers landlords and brokers free listing capabilities, real-time tour booking and social media integration
SEATTLE, Washington – January 24, 2012 – OfficeSpace.com today unveiled a new service designed to arm tenants with the information needed to help them make better real estate decisions for their businesses. Launching first in the Portland, Oregon metro area, the new site provides businesses with a free and powerful search functionality to help them find available office space that meets their search criteria. OfficeSpace.com also helps tenants-to-be, obtain in-depth information about properties, book tours and ultimately provides the ability to close their lease transaction online.
In addition to providing time-saving tools and resources to tenants, OfficeSpace.com also offers landlords and brokers the ability to post their listings for free on the site, and the ability to set their availability for tours using a real-time calendar where they can even provide tours to multiple tenants simultaneously. OfficeSpace.com will be providing a valuable service, connecting tenants to landlords and brokers.
OfficeSpace.com also makes Social media integration with Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+ easy for both landlords and tenants. For example, tenants can read reviews of other tenants in the building and share comments with each other on the spaces that they have toured in order to help keep organized. Landlords can leverage social media integration by sending out new properties to their networks from OfficeSpace.com with one click of their mouse.
“We understand that entrepreneurs and business owners are busy people and they want to start their research online, in their limited spare time, before committing to taking the next step, ” said Susie Algard, OfficeSpace.com’s CEO. “With OfficeSpace.com, tenants can access more information instantly and for free.”
While all size businesses can benefit from leveraging OfficeSpace.com, tenants of smaller spaces can benefit disproportionately as most commercial real estate brokers avoid working with these folks altogether. OfficeSpace.com is focused on disrupting the current business model in commercial real estate so that tenants of all sizes do not need to depend on brokers for all of their office space needs. The new service launches today in the Portland Oregon metro area and plans on serving several additional cities within the coming year.
Experienced Internet entrepreneurs Susie Algard and Alex Algard purchased OfficeSpace.com in late 2010. Frustrated by some of the trials and tribulations of their own experiences trying to find office space for companies that they were involved in, they decided that it was time to make a change in the commercial real estate space. Susie, CEO of OfficeSpace.com, was previously a senior executive and founding member at WhitePages.com, a top 30 Internet property. Alex is the founder and chairman of CarDomain Network as well as founder and CEO of WhitePages.com.
OfficeSpace.com also operates one of the leading commercial real estate marketing and analytics services in Seattle, Spokane, Denver, Minneapolis, Cincinnati and Columbus.
