Kelley will be the featured speaker for the April 16 session. Having led the company through a recent ownership and name change, he will share his expertise on “Leading through Organizational Change.” In May 2020, Kelley finalized an amicable stock purchase from former partner John Flake and the firm was renamed Kelley Commercial Partners.

When you’re searching for office, retail, warehouse, or any other type of commercial real estate space to lease, finding the right property to match your needs can feel a bit overwhelming, which is why contacting a knowledgeable tenant broker is the best place to start. Tenant brokers understand current market trends and are equipped with the tools and knowledge to successfully guide you through the leasing process from start to finish.
Kelley Commercial Partners’ tenant brokers have the expertise to make your search for space less daunting. They have the latest information about market conditions and space availability to help narrow your options so you can make a choice with confidence. Working with a tenant broker at Kelley Commercial Partners means you have an expert on your side who can not only save you time and energy but can also save you money.
The first step in our process is to schedule an appointment with you to discuss your specific needs. Matt Strom, a KCP agent in our Northwest office says this a crucial step because having a thorough understanding of a client’s needs helps to streamline the process of securing the right space for their business.
Once the ideal space is found, tenant brokers will help you negotiate with landlords to secure the space at the best possible price. And the best part of all? Tenant broker services are done at no cost to you! “Many clients don’t know that a tenant broker’s services are free to them,” said Strom. When a lease has been executed, tenant brokers’ fees are paid by the landlord.
At Kelley Commercial Partners our brokers have a proven history of satisfied clients. Helping our clients find the right space to meet their unique needs and meet their commercial real estate goals is our top priority. Whether you are looking to lease, buy, sell, or develop commercial real estate, our team is available to guide you through the process.

A 1031 exchange, also known as a tax-deferred exchange, gets its name from the Internal Revenue Code 1031. Essentially, this rule in the tax code allows investors to defer certain tax liabilities they would otherwise incur after making a profit from a real estate investment. This can be an incredibly effective tool for investors who find themselves in a situation in which they would like to sell a real estate holding, but do not want to incur the tax burdens such a transaction would create.
In order to take advantage of the 1031 exchange rule, you must replace the property you are selling (the relinquished property) by purchasing another property (the replacement property) with one of equal or greater value and similar in kind and use. For example, if you are relinquishing a rental property for $100,000, you must replace it with another rental property with one valued at $100,000 or more. (You may also have the option to buy several rental properties, so long as the sum total of their value is $100,000 or more). So, unfortunately, you cannot relinquish a rental property and replace it with a vacation home because those two properties would not be alike in kind and use.
In addition to these restrictions, there is a set time frame in which all of these transactions must occur. Once the relinquished property has closed, investors have 45 days to identify the replacement property and 180 days to close that transaction.
Finding buyers for the properties you wish to relinquish, while at the same time attempting to identify equitable exchange properties can be challenging, especially considering the time restrictions. Proper attention must be paid to the details of how 1031 exchanges work and how using them might affect your long-term plans. This is why it is so important to find an experienced CRE professional you can trust to help you with the due diligence commercial real estate transactions require.
If you have any questions regarding a tax-deferred exchange or any other commercial real estate issue, Kelley Commercial Partners brokers and associates are here to provide the answers and support you need to make successful decisions.
