  8. 8. 1. Never work without a written agreement! Make it as specific as possible for each assignment. Don’t assume anything! 2. Get a “meeting of the minds” and verbally discuss the goals of the prospective client and their assignment before even discussing the agreement. It should be an after thought once you have bonded! 3. Go into the meeting focusing on the client not getting the business! The prospective client can sense this. If you are solution focused you will have a better chance of getting the business. 4. Think long term, relationship driven, not short term transaction driven! 5. Today Trust, Bonding, Relationship is more important than ever! With so much greed, fraud, etc (Madoff) prospective clients will be cautious and careful about each and every relationship they want to make!
  9. 9. 6 . Use your “Trusted advisors” to get in with the prospects “Trusted Advisors”. 7. More tenants are renewing than ever before! Our statistical trends are showing more than 80% of tenants renewing vs. 70% from earlier years. What this means is going in thinking more of renewal/restructuring existing leases or early lease renewal vs. relocating. 8.Even less are purchasing buildings or building buildings. This year none of my clients building and only one have purchased a facility. Most are doing early lease renewals 12-18 months before lease expiration!
