Prior to founding Burland Commercial Josh Burland spent years working as a landlord leasing agent for institutionally owned industrial projects. In this capacity he gained the insight and experience to understand market conditions and negotiations from both landlord and tenant perspectives.
Working for the largest commercial real estate firm in the world, Josh was tasked with the leasing of one million total square feet of industrial buildings in San Diego. His landlord client's projects consistently outperformed surrounding markets, as he achieved above market rents and occupancy rates for his landlord clientele. This experience gave Josh inside knowledge regarding concessions that landlords are willing to make for different types of tenants, and which issues commonly become sticking points. These issues include rent abatement, construction allowances, renewal and expansion options, and many more.
Josh then leveraged this invaluable experience on the landlord side to become an advocate for tenants in the market as a tenant and buyer representation agent. Josh’s tenant representation experience ranged from small startups targeting 2,000 square feet to established Fortune 500 companies looking for distribution centers of more than 100,000 square feet. He has been successful in securing the best locations and most favorable terms for a wide variety of clients.
