Strategic Commercial Real Estate Services for Southern California
DeFevere Advisory Group is a very modern interpretation of the commercial real estate firm which offers a rare combination of real estate and business advisory services tailored to accelerate the development of high growth and middle market companies in Southern California.
We are purpose built for the efficient execution of sophisticated real estate transactions, on behalf of companies, who are looking for high level real estate transactional services.
Here we have created a place where professionals are passionate about building companies more as a holistic professional art rather than a one off assignment.
We view real estate as a strategic opportunity to increase the bottom line value of your company at least two big ways.
First is by creating ‘capital efficiencies’ in the Commercial Office Lease or in a straight out Purchase.
The second is that we view the new ‘culture’ which we create for your company as important as the money you pay them. “Cultures aren’t so much planned as they evolve from that early set of people.”
The office space work environment, which we assist you create for your company, is one of the single most important reasons your employees have pride in what they do for you. It is why your employees stay with you and work so hard for your company. All folks want to belong to or be a part of something which is bigger than themselves’ alone. Your employees are often your most precious resource.
