Synergy Real Estate Group, Corporate Advisory Completes 3rd Real Estate Requirement for NASA

NASAJohn Galaxidas, President/CEO of Synergy announced it completed its 3rd commercial real estate requirement for NASA.

NASA recently retained the services of Synergy Real Estate Group, Corporate Advisory (www.synreg.com) headquartered in San Diego, California to help them identify a hard to find space.

The facility had to be a specific depth, width, height and triangular in shape. NASA’s contractor L’Garde (www.LGarde.com), who is building the largest solar sail space craft of its kind in Tustin, California, originally hired a local tenant representation firm to help them find the space.

After spending Six (6) months with another tenant rep firm, NASA – L’Garde switched to Synergy which took only two (2) weeks to identify the property.

Why does NASA use Synergy over any other Tenant Representation firm?

“We identify space no other firm can find because we contact every Property Owner, Landlord Listing Broker and Corporation to find missed lease and sublease opportunities. Most Tenant Rep firms rely 100% on commercial listing services to identify space. At Synergy, we track every space in the local submarkets daily and will be sure that you are made aware of all possibilities, as many are not marketed publicly,” said John Galaxidas.

At Synergy Real Estate Group, Corporate Advisory (www.synreg.com), we only represent Tenants and are dedicated to our role as the Tenant Advocate. “Synergy is made up of principal-level professionals, so all work is handled by top negotiators in the industry,” said Galaxidas.

Synergy’s most prestigious clients include NASA, Hitachi, Farmers Insurance, HP, DELL, Cisco Systems and Charles Schwab. Synergy does not charge for its service. “Since all leasing fees associated with a building are budgeted for and paid by the landlords, you will incur no costs while having expert representation to insure that you achieve the best lease terms possible,” said Galaxidas.

How Synergy differentiates itself from other firms:

  • We only work for Tenants, never Landlords: 100% Tenant Focused
  • Tremendous leverage and clout with Landlords
  • Value our client’s trust & confidence in our work
  • No Cost for our Service. Listing Agent splits their fee to represent your interests in the transaction
  • We guarantee we will secure the lowest cost on space

“We remove the conflict of interest inherent when a listing broker tries to represent both the tenant and landlord, whereby we never represent Landlords, only Tenants to secure you the best location and deal on space,” said Galaxidas.

“We do this through a proven process of first identifying all possible opportunities, and then negotiate exclusively for our client’s needs which allows us to get landlords to align themselves closer to our client’s interests,” said Galaxidas.

We do what no other Tenant Representation firm does:

  • We inventory the market on a daily basis.
  • We specialize in identifying hard to find “under-marketed” and “un-listed” opportunities.
  • We contact every property owner/listing broker on your behalf to uncover “off-market” lease opportunities.
  • When it comes time to negotiating the transaction, we draft and send out proposals on your behalf, leveraging one Landlord against the other to secure the best lease terms and rate on the space.

“At the end of the day, you receive a complete value added service which helps you avoid missed opportunities + saves you time and money since we do all the leg work for you,” said Galaxidas.

Synergy Real Estate Group Assists Hitachi Subsidiary AccSys Technology in Leasing Space for Its New Ion Accelerator Test Facility

Fremont, CA January 28, 2013

HitachiJohn Galaxidas, President and CEO of Synergy Real Estate Group, Corporate Advisory, announced that the company had assisted Hitachi subsidiary AccSys Technology, Inc. in leasing a 12,000 square foot industrial property to be used as a testing facility for its ion linear accelerators. The deal continues Synergy’s prominent role representing high-technology clients in Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area.

Adam Sass, Synergy’s Vice President for the San Francisco Bay Area, led the search for a property that met the specialized operational needs of AccSys’s advanced linear accelerator technology.

“AccSys was planning a test facility for our ion linear accelerators, which are widely used in such medical applications as PET scans and Proton Beam Therapy for cancer,” said Marjan Zand, Quality Assurance Manager at AccSys. “As you can imagine, particle accelerators require a lot of power, and Adam Sass of Synergy was able to quickly and accurately identify the industrial properties in our target geographic area that offered the combination of electrical service, sufficient space, secure location and other facility requirement for our test operations,” she added.

“It’s a rare opportunity and a real privilege to work with a company whose technology does so much good, and finding them the right location for their test operations was incredibly satisfying,” said Sass.

After multiple property tours coordinated by Synergy, AccSys found the right location for its test facility at 47730 Westinghouse Drive, Fremont, California, at the eastern edge of Silicon Valley. Boasting 1600 amps of 3 phase industrial power and 100% HVAC, temperature-controlled facilities, it was the ideal environment for testing AccSys’s linear accelerators. An added benefit was the easy commute from AccSys headquarters in Pleasanton, California.

To differentiate itself from other commercial real estate firms, Synergy never represents landlords, only tenants. There is no cost to clients for its services. “The heart of our business is providing in-depth market knowledge, expert property search services, and skilled negotiation to our clients,” said Galaxidas. “Since landlords pay our brokerage fees, our clients receive professional representation by our tenant representatives at no added cost to themselves.”

For AccSys Technology, choosing Synergy’s services resulted in the right property at the right price. “Synergy’s team proved efficient and reliable in managing the leasing process from start to finish. We would highly recommend their services to other technology companies seeking commercial space in the Bay Area,” said Zand.

AccSys Technology is the world’s leading commercial producer of rf ion linacs (radio frequency ion linear accelerators) for medical, industrial and research applications. Founded in 1985 as a design and manufacturing company, AccSys specializes in the development, production, installation and servicing of compact ion linacs using its patented linac technology. AccSys is dedicated to providing the highest quality and most reliable commercial ion linac systems to meet the needs of its customers.
