When it came time to renew the lease for our 20,000 square foot highly specialized development facility, Dickstein Real Estate Services leveled the playing field in this negotiation. Five years earlier I attempted to do this negotiation myself and was just way out matched against the landlord. Larry was able to provide a credible, competitive environment in which to negotiate from our Landlord, a reduction in our rent by several dollars per square foot. In addition, Larry was able to have the Landlord make some long term building repairs which included a freshly paved driveway and parking lot, plus refresh our offices with new carpet and paint. We were extremely satisfied with the professional manner in which Mr. Dickstein conducted these sensitive negotiations and appreciate his experience and strategic insight into the renewal process.

He has taken Genpsych, Inc. from 3,500 square feet to 24,000 square feet and climbing. From site selection through lease negotiations we can rely on Larry to assist us with every phase of the leasing process in a professional manner. He is always there to provide the advice needed to handle all the day to day issues that can arise with a growing company like ours.

Larry Dickstein represented us in negotiations to find and relocate to a new office facility in Somerset, New Jersey. By performing a program analysis he was able to show us how to reduce our space from 10,000 square feet to just 6,400 square feet with even greater space efficiency. Once we identified the amount of space we were looking for Larry was able to find a location nearby where we reduced the rent by over $5.00 per square foot. This meant that we reduced our operating overhead by over 40% in a new class “A” location. To top it off, as an additional incentive Larry was able to secure cubicles, a reception desk, and other office furniture from the Landlord. Larry has recently renewed this lease for an additional term of five years at an even lower rent going forward. This has been a really great experience.”
