Tenant Representation

Pointwise has cultivated relationships with a vast network of retail and real estate professionals nationwide. We can leverage our contacts along with our working knowledge of the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico, and Guam to help you with strategic planning, site selection, lease and legal negotiations, store planning and construction, lease administration, and more. We approach each location as the long-term investment it is. Our leasing professionals have an average of 19 years of experience in the industry, most of which has been with major retail organizations. We loathe the broker mentality, which is why we maintain a corporate attitude with our approach to business, viewing ourselves as an extension of our client’s real estate department. Our mission: to work side by side with you to help you implement your real estate strategy efficiently, effectively, and economically.
