James Pearson State Farm - Tenant Representation - New Caney, Texas

Successful State Farm agents may be granted an opportunity to open a second and sometimes third office. James Pearson is a great agent, so it was no surprise when he was approved to open a second agency in New Caney, TX. James called Patrick Graham to help with the site selection process because options were slim in the restricted area where James had to open his agency. Patrick pulled all relevant options and discussed how they compared to each other. James and Patrick toured the market and visited several properties. Patrick drew upon his relationship with several area developers who controlled the two major retail developments in New Caney. Patrick researched all options including spaces that might be coming available soon, presented those spaces to James, and helped negotiate agreeable terms on James’ preferred space. James was able to open his second location and is now a proud Multi-Office-Agent ("MOA"). It is often difficult for small business owners to get quality commercial real estate representation. Commercial real estate brokers avoid small tenant representation assignments because the fees are not significant, but the deals take an equivalent amount of effort as a larger transaction. A core value for Grawood Commercial is that any job worth doing is worth doing right. We follow our core values when it comes to client representation, which means we stand up for small business owners and provide them with quality representation. Insurance agents often require small spaces with shorter terms to allow flexibility. We have represented many insurance agents and understand their business models. This knowledge allows us to better advise those clients and help them navigate the site selection process based on how they intend to market their agency. What works for one agent may not fit another agent's business plan. We listen, and we structure the site search criteria that aligns with the agent's vision. We're proud to have represented James, and we have enjoyed watching his MOA team’s success in New Caney.
