Why We Started Small Office Search

It all started on a chilly fall day in 2010. Looking at the commercial property market, real estate broker Guy Scavone and investor Chris George saw a critical need to match property owners (and their brokers) with tenants in search of small offices and executive suites. Chris and Guy believed they could create a compelling business and value proposition within the "office property" space for buildings and units smaller than 3,000 square feet. Space which traditionally had been unprofitable for brokers and hard to find for tenants. So, they set out to find a solution for both owners and tenants.

The market for executive suites, single offices, and small flex space has been fragmented and solutions for leasing are hard to come by for owners and brokers. Through hundreds of calls, online research, and diligence, it quickly became clear that an efficient web based service for this narrowly defined "sub-market" would quickly be adopted by those on both sides of the lease. Brokers time and again told us there wasn't enough time in the day (money) to effectively represent owners of small space.

The market seemed limitless and there was a huge void for effective leasing solutions specifically for the small office, executive suite, and flex space owners and users. Any online solutions that did exist were ad-hock, not narrowly focused, and simply did not solve the hurdles in front of owners, brokers and prospective tenants. A new online service was needed to truly simplify the way small office and executive suite owners met tenants. What we have done gives small business owners and individuals more time to focus on their true passion: growing their businesses.
