Office Freedom – Still the smartest way to find your next office
Beginning the process of looking for office space can be daunting. Unlike most things you buy today, finding office space can’t be resolved with a simple Google search. In this article we look at how to find your next office, the steps you need to take and how we can assist you in taking them and the key reasons we think using Office Freedom is still the smartest way to find your next office.
How to find your perfect workspace
The wisdom of getting expert tenant representation
Finding office space on your own can be a formidable challenge.
You’ll need to:-
- Define your requirements
- Consider all the options (location, cost, size, type of workspace, amenities, scope to expand, terms etc.)
- Conduct searches and local research
- Check reviews and credentials
- Make numerous calls
- Shortlist properties
- Arrange viewings
- Negotiate with property experts
- Agree contract terms
- Organise the office move
For all these reasons it’s wise to get expert “Tenant Representation”, this is what Office Freedom provides.
Use an established, experienced representative
Office Freedom started in 1993 and was the first global broker of flexible workspace. Back then John Major was UK Prime Minister, Bill Clinton was US President and the average UK house price was £62,333, so you’ll appreciate that we have a lot of experience in this business! We apply all this invaluable industry knowledge to every client we represent today.

Step 3 – Our consultants search, compare and shortlist the best office spaces for your requirements
Our experienced consultants will shortlist properties matching your requirements and present viable options within the surrounding area which best fits your budget and the current market availability.

Once you’ve shortlisted the properties you’d like to view, your office space consultant will accompany you on viewings (where required) to help you gain a clear vision and understanding of which space will suit you best.
Step 5 – Tailoring your shortlist and negotiating the best possible terms
When you’ve viewed the final shortlist of offices, it’s time to negotiate the best possible price for the office space you love. Our consultants will negotiate hard to get you the very best terms possible which could save you £000’s.
Step 6 – Sign a simple agreement and move into your new office
Once you’re happy with everything, all that’s left is to sign on the dotted line and move into your new workspace. When you’ve settled into your space, our consultant will arrange a suitable time to visit and catch up with your team and ensure you love your new home.
