Downtown & Greater LA Real Estate Services

Commercial Real Estate Services

Downtown LA Commercial Real Estate Servicesdtlarealestate.com specializes in Downtown LA commercial real estate services and also serves the greater Los Angeles area.   The founder of our company, Donegan McCuaig, has worked in Downtown LA since December 2008 and lived in the area since 2012.  Donegan knows what areas are going where in Downtown Los Angeles and is great at predicting success.  The seemingly countless tenants he has leased to attests to that.  Having been a DTLA enthusiast, working and living in Downtown, it would be hard to find someone in the commercial arena with their ear more to the ground to help clients achieve desirable success.

Aside from uniquely serving creative companies, our company, in multiple ways, is positioned to give commercial properties greater advertising exposure than any other brokerage in Downtown LA.  That is the is probably the reason we are so good at leasing property in gentrifying or soon-to-be gentrified areas.  We amaze owners by the number of potential tenants we bring to buildings.  Additionally, we typically reach 100% occupancy on the properties we choose to work with.  Here’s some specifics on how we can help you with Downtown LA commercial real estate services.

 

Creative Office Space for Lease

Our company began by leasing warehouse space to artists in the Fashion District of Downtown LA, and grew from there.  It is hard to imagine another brokerage better equipped to help you lease creative office space in Downtown LA than ours, especially to small business tenants.  Of course, we can serve large companies seeking creative office space as well, and not just in Downtown, but also in the Greater LA area.  We are especially equipped to help companies in the fashion, film, media, entertainment, photography, design, architecture, and artistic industries because we have already leased space to so many.  Because of the brokers experience with these business, any company that wants to become a more inspiring brand through adopting a more creative work environment would be well-served with us.

Of course, we’ve also leased space to attorneys and other typical tenants that would lease office space and we are happy to do so.  We know every large multi-story building positioned to be creative office/work space in Downtown LA and can suggest which one would be the best fit for your business, based on your needs.  If you are a building owner, you have come to the right place to get your building leased by creative  business tenants.

 

Retail Space for Lease

When it comes to leasing retail in gentrifying areas, we are unmatched.  Although we are equipped to lease to major retailers, we tend to work with tenants that are looking for affordable ground floor creative space to grow their business.  In an amazingly dynamic real estate market that is Downtown LA, with drastically different districts, it is important to know what is happening and where, and how you would be best served; and that is why you should work with us.

Serving creative types of tenants and understanding their business and how they make their money, is a key advantage to our company over our competitors.  Furthermore, you would be hard pressed to find a broker better versed in the areas uncommonly leased by gentrified tenants such as the Fashion District, Produce District, the Industrial District (including the Toy District); though we love, know, and serve all the districts including South Park, Chinatown, Little Tokyo, Historic Core (including the Jewelry District & Old Bank District), and the Central Business District (Bunker Hill, Financial District).

 

Commercial Real Estate for Sale

Being so knowledgeable about DTLA’s commercial lease rates and trends in different districts and specific areas within those districts, we are uniquely positioned to give you detailed information to better help you to invest in commercial property in Downtown LA in order to take advantage of the market trajectory.  Also, having been in Downtown LA for so long, we know many many owners, and have inside information about pocket listings.

Not only that, if you are a property owner, it’s hard to believe any other Downtown LA commercial real estate company can give your property more internet advertising exposure than we can.  We will not pocket list your property, but put it on the market immediately for the greatest number of potential buyers to know about it, looking to invest in the explosive growth of DTLA.  Choose us for Downtown LA commercial real estate services.

 

Residential Real Estate Services

Condos for Sale in Downtown LA

As a secondary service we also help people buy and sell residential condos/lofts in Downtown LA.  Live/work condos are a great option for creative office for those who want to own their space, since there are not a lot of commercial condos available in Downtown LA.  It’s a great way to build equity!  Also, many live/work condos offer amenities that can be hard to find in creative office buildings, like private bathrooms with shower and full kitchens.  Many small businesses look live/work lofts as an option for their business.  Want to live in Downtown LA?  Want to buy a live/work condo for your business?  Give us a call! Or simply submit your information in the quick contact form and someone will get back to you as soon as possible, thank you!
