Hello, is it tenants you’re looking for?

Our Tenant Connect program continues to flourish, and we’re happy to say that 2015 has been an exciting year for the overall growth of the program. Since our last update 11 months ago, OfficeSpace.com has gone nationwide and we’ve more than doubled the number of participating brokers in our Tenant Connect program.

Much of the program’s success can be attributed to the strong year we’ve had as a whole. We’ve seen record traffic numbers and have continued to track growth on all fronts:



Recap: The Program

Tenant Connect is our broker marketing platform which we’ve designed specifically for Tenant Rep Brokers. This platform allows Tenant Rep brokers to connect with prospective tenants who are actively searching for available spaces on OfficeSpace.com. These connections happen via email or phone and are tracked in our system and relayed directly to the broker. As a Tenant Rep, you simply have to qualify and respond to inquiries (something you all do currently).

This platform has truly proved to be beneficial to both the Tenant and the Tenant Reps.

An updated snapshot of what we’ve seen in our program:

– Over 14,000 contacts directly delivered to the broker.
– Over 157% growth in the number of participating partners over the past 10 months.
Tenant rep partners are averaging over a 4x return on their spend.
– Over 75% of our users are tenants searching without representation, and 68% are searching for spaces over 1,000SF.

What Participants Are Saying

We recently turned to one of our Tenant Connect veterans, Scott Driver, to ask how the program has personally impacted him:

Q: How does Tenant Connect compare to other online referral/lead sources?

Scott DriverThere are no other lead resources for Tenant Rep Brokers.

Q: To date, what has been your most memorable tenant contact from OfficeSpace.com

Scott Driver: A contact that resulted in a $15,879.75 commission check for an office lease.

Q: What has been the biggest impact for you as a result of joining Tenant Connect?

Scott DriverAdditional income was $30,000 in 2014 (4 months), and $57,000 2nd quarter of 2015 with many deals in the pipeline. There’s also an additional peace of mind knowing that leads will be received at least weekly if not more often.

Q: Do you have any advice for new members or for those that are interested in joining?

Scott Driver: Contact the leads via email as quickly as possible, followed by a phone call to determine the specifics of the requirement, how “real” it is, and the probability of closing a transaction. Also, show the space as soon as possible.

Q: Anything else you’d like to add?

Scott Driver: Anyone who does not benefit from this lead program isn’t getting up in the morning.

The Next Steps

As we diligently add new listings and drive more traffic, we are continuing to see new opportunities in most of our markets to add more Tenant Rep partners who are hungry to grow their business and understand the value of online marketing.

The Destination

It has been 18 months since we launched our pilot program for Tenant Rep Brokers and I’m thrilled to say that it has been an overwhelming success!  In fact, since we launched, others have tried to copy our model which is further validation of the market opportunity.  However, their captive audience isn’t necessarily tenants that are searching for space and is reflected in the quality of those leads.

2012 and 2013 were record years for us over multiple metrics and 2014 seems to be on the same overall trajectory, if not better:OfficeSpaceUserGrowthOfficeSpace.com continues to be the premier destination for tenants that are actively looking for space.

The Program

Tenant Connect is our broker marketing program specifically designed for tenant representation brokers from the ground up.  Our platform allows prospective tenants to reach out to our Tenant Connect Brokers directly as they are searching for available spaces while on OfficeSpace.com.  These inquiries or contacts can happen via email or phone and are tracked in our system and relayed directly to the broker.  It is truly a platform that works for both the Tenant and the Tenant Reps.  Best of all, as a tenant rep, you don’t have to do anything to source the clients, you just have to qualify and respond to the inquiries…something you all do currently.

Overall results for the past 18 months:

  • Approximately $500,000 in commission revenue generated for the broker
  • Over 6,500 contacts directly delivered to the broker
  • Over 115 closings with a large pipeline
  • Our broker churn rate is flat at 0%, everyone is seeing the value

The Journey

All our current tenant connect brokers are reaping the benefits of adopting early as they are all generating commissions and have secured their spot in their respective markets.  All our pilot cities are currently full but we are always building out wait lists.  Additionally, we make proactive changes to our tenant connect broker pools based on performance and user reviews, which helps us improve our tenant experience.

What some of our Tenant Connect Brokers have to say:

Overall – the use of OfficeSpace.com has enhanced my ability as a broker tenfold – I truly cannot imagine getting going without a tool like this.  My interest in inbound leads and how to qualify, nurture and then cultivate them has proven a great asset to Colliers –and an invaluable learning experience with your tool.  I look forward to many more years of successful partnership – and would encourage any and all feedback you have for me in the future. — Sam Devorris (Colliers, Denver)

(in 4 months) Have received over $30,000 in commissions my efforts have generated from the leads so obviously it has worked for me! — Scott Driver (Scott Driver & Company, Seattle)

The main reason for enjoying the TC Broker Program over the last two years is the ease of quality inbound leads and income, not just the immediate 5 figure deals but the future 5/6 figure deals when leases roll/renew/relocate.  I have never done a six-figure lease with Office Space yet, but in 2013 and 2014 so many deals were in the five-figure range. I also have a 62 month deal in the highest priced building in all of San Diego County today from an Office Space lead – anyone can call me about it, and I will note how easy it was to get.

In our competitive commercial real estate environment to have so many office leads come in that are coming from areas that you would otherwise have to be LinkedIn, be introduced, or network to meet the President or CEO, OfficeSpace.com is able to cut right to the front of the line.  

I recommend OfficeSpace.com to all tenant reps, the only problem is not all tenant reps can become a member, so I tell them in minutes to sign up or get back to LinkedIn, be introduced, or network. — Michael Mazzotta (XREIT, San Diego)

The Opportunity

We’ve learned over the past few years how to attract and keep prospective users on the site and we will continue to listen, learn, and refine our services.  The team at OfficeSpace.com is aggressively expanding our listing base throughout the nation and this will allow us to bring this platform to many more markets in the near future.

If you are interested in being a leader with entrepreneurial foresight, contact us for more information and reserve your spot as we offer this platform in your market:

Don’t miss out like so many brokers in our pilot markets did, by letting the herd mentality take over.  Many of those that missed out was simply due to waiting to see who would join the program.

After all, where else can you tap into a steady profitable stream of prospective tenants actively looking for your help?
