Commercial Real Estate Services Westchester County, Howard Properties


Successful commercial real estate transactions are about so much more than just negotiating the best deal. For most companies, commercial real estate is the second largest business expense, and it’s an investment in the future of the company. How well that investment supports business objectives can hinder or help operations for years to come.

At Howard Properties, we work closely with our clients to understand their unique needs and business goals. Our commercial real estate services means your business will benefit from our market knowledge, decades of experience, and meticulous attention to the needs of your company. As your tenant representative, we’ll ensure your new space maximizes the value of your rental budget and supports your business growth now and in the future.


We create the best options for our clients that they can’t get by themselves. As a result, our clients get more than the cost savings of a masterfully negotiated deal.

Tenant Representation
Representing our clients to achieve the lowest possible rents and highest possible construction and free rent allowances, whether for a relocation, lease renewal, expansion or contraction of space.

Lease Renewals
Representing our clients with a “zero based” approach to extending existing leases to achieve the best terms and conditions for the future. There are many instances in which rents can actually be rolled back and space can be reconfigured or renovated at no cost to the tenant as a result of a professional renewal negotiation.

Lease Negotiation
There are many “business points” in a lease that are worth real money. We can negotiate these points to your advantage.

Lease Restructuring/Blend and Extend
Even if your lease does not expire for years, there are opportunities to reduce your rent, make modifications in your space to improve its aesthetics and workflow, and lock in low lease rates for additional years.

Lease Administration
Keeping track of critical dates (renewal notices, expansion or contraction rights, rights of first offer or first refusal, cancellation dates, etc.) and lease provisions for financial or operational questions that may arise during a lease term.
