Our services

Tenant representation

Tenant representation

DLRE is a proven market leader in the commercial real estate representation of tenants and buyers. Over decades, we have built our business with a strict tenants-only rule, which means we NEVER represent landlords. This ensures zero conflict of interest, as our sole fiduciary duty is to act in our clients’ best interests.

Construction management

Project and Construction Management

At DLRE we believe a business’ commercial real estate provides the foundation on which it will build its future success. That’s why we make it our priority to clearly understand the expectations of each client, and hold ourselves accountable for delivering on that vision.

Lease audits

Lease audits

Rubik’s cubes, mazes, and leases have one thing in common: They’re complicated. Landlords like to keep you in the dark, presenting operating expense statements in vague and unclear terms. More often than not, this is intentional and makes it virtually impossible to detect red flags.

Global representation

National, US and global representation

With the CORFAC affiliation DLRE currently has affiliate offices in 46 U.S. markets, 6 Canadian markets and 27 international markets, including Australia, Colombia, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Romania, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
