Russell T. Noll, CCIM, and Cynthia Lee, CCIM
Keller Williams City View, a franchise of Keller Williams Realty International, has signed a full-building lease for the Park at Vance Jackson, which includes two 30,000-square-foot buildings in northwest San Antonio. Transwestern executive managing director Russell T. Noll, CCIM, and a colleague represented the Park on Vance Jackson LLC, while Cynthia Lee, CCIM, represented the tenant, KW Commercial City View.
Despite the COVID pandemic, the two CCIMs were able to reach an agreement thanks to long-term goals for both parties.
“While there certainly were discussions about the immediate COVID issues, the focus still remained on the next 10 years,” Lee says.
The tenant, meanwhile, hopes to benefit in the near future because of amenities offered by the new property.
“There was an urgency for Keller Williams to move to a new facility that was more in line with their strategic goals of growth and helping agents succeed,” Noll, CCIM, says. “So, to navigate the timing of the transaction, the landlord needed to be creative. The creative deal structure recommended to my client was necessary because of what the tenant would mean to the project long term.
COVID-19 has impacted every area of CRE, including some general trends in the office sector. Potential tenants may look for locations in less dense areas. The increased accessibility offered from office properties with multiple entrances is another asset in a post-COVID world.
“One of the positive attributes of the building that was unintentional, but now critical with COVID, is that it’s single story,” Noll says. “This access allows KW agents to pull up to the building and walk directly inside versus navigating a lobby and elevators which can create more exposure.”
The pandemic presented certain obstacles in closing the deal, with the tenant needing to completely redo space planning. Lee cited Keller Williams incorporating more open spaces, more individual office, new video meeting rooms, and an enlarged training room to encourage social distancing.
“Russell and I already had an established trust as former colleagues,” Lee says. “In fact, he was one of my sponsors for my CCIM designation and continues to mentor me today. We knew that no matter how tough negotiations might get with [this] deal, we would find the solution that satisfied both parties.”
