Landlord and tenant representation is the heart of Southwest Strategies’ business

Our principals have more than 50 years’ combined experience in Austin real estate, and are among the 20 percent of local professionals responsible for 80 percent of all sales and leasing.

Southwest Strategies Group offers all aspects of lease management including market data collection and review, lease negotiation, landlord-tenant lease administration, expense reconciliation, lease document review and overall facilities planning. Our team markets both raw land and income-producing properties.

Among the tenants we represent are several institutions and other large commercial enterprises such as Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, Austin-Travis County MHMR and others. Southwest Strategies provides all brokerage services for these clients. On the landlord side, we handle leasing at specific properties for such property owners as CIM Group, Inc. at 200,000 sf Penn Field.

The team of Southwest Strategies enjoys close working relationships with Austin’s real estate brokerage community, relationships built through 29 years of cooperation and constant information sharing with other brokers. CoStar Group has named Southwest Strategies to its list of Power Brokers, and the principals were named Heavy Hitters by the Austin Business Journal.

Retail Leasing

Unparalleled in the local Austin leasing market

For a development to realize its maximum potential, strategic planning of the retail component during the design phase is key. A myriad of factors are considered when creating a strategy for a development. Too often, these important considerations are realized after the development is completed.

It becomes a harder sell to attract quality, experienced retailers and vitality of the development suffers long term. Incentives are oftentimes used as a leasing strategy to compensate for inferior design but it is an artificial solution that creates a financial disadvantage and can plague a development throughout its lifetime.

Southwest Strategies Group and their associates have deep experience in the retail arena and know first-hand the guiding principles necessary to help design a prosperous development with a winning retail component. Our approach goes beyond the key components of a retail leasing study.
