    Alidade Partners
    Commercial real estate ocupiers today are looking to optimize their real estate spend. They want the right amount, the right type, in the right place. They also want to be able to flex up and down as necessary to accommodate special project teams, events, etc. 
    Occupiers are struggling to make the right decisions in this still very uncertain “hybrid” work world.
     
    On the other side, asset owners are struggling to package their offerings in a way that aligns with this evolved tenant demand (and buying power).
     
    Enter Alidade Partners….they help occupiers make informed decisions about their real estate by providing data-driven analysis and recommendations. The company also works with asset owners to help them understand occupier demand and optimize their offerings to achieve 100% occupancy. 
     
    By working with both occupiers and asset owners, Alidade Partners can help create efficient and effective real estate markets that benefit everyone involved.In this episode, Brandon Maderios and I dive into how exactly Alidade does this.
