Hageman and its partner, Rebar Companies, were seeking an experienced, knowledgeable, and connected brokerage partner for a commercial leasing project in downtown Noblesville, Indiana. Since this project was a public/private partnership with the city of Noblesville, it endured extra scrutiny and a complex approval process. The Hageman/Rebar team needed the right, local broker with market knowledge and relationships in the retail, healthcare, and office sectors. A broker who could navigate through unique space delivery challenges and rising construction costs that materially impacted lease negotiations.
The Hageman/Rebar team engaged Scott Lindenberg of Reliant Partners and he was able to leverage his mixed-use brokerage experience, local relationships, and the Reliant Partners marketing team to expedite the project lease-up. It required Scott to wear different hats in the negotiation process and collaborate with architects, engineers, construction managers and attorneys to memorialize lease commitments. Mixed-use projects with residential and/or parking above or below commercial space often present unforeseen challenges. Ultimately, Scott’s lease negotiation skills and construction acumen helped navigate negotiation pitfalls and safeguard the landlord’s interest in lease negotiations.
