“Tom was referred to us by another real estate firm to represent us in securing a warehouse presence for our new entity. The space needed to be located in specific location and meet certain needs. In a very competitive landscape TDKCA and Tom were able to find us the perfect space, guide us through the process, and get it done quickly and on budget.“

—Mike O’Brien, CEO, Oasis Inc.

“We have been working with Tom for several years to find the perfect site for our new branch office which would serve much of the Mainline of Philadelphia. After considering several locations we zeroed in on Suburban Square, a multi-use lifestyle project located in the heart of Mainline. TDKCA negotiated a below market transaction for us which allowed us to achieve our goals. We are very pleased with TDKCA’s process and representation model and I would recommend them to anyone.“

“I was referred to Tom Kramer and TDK Commercial Advisors though a business consultant I was working with the help establish a new business in the Greater Philadelphia Area. I was seeking a knowledgeable resource to help me to identify appropriate office space; however, what I received from TDK was much more than that. Tom took the time to understand what my business was and what my budget for office space was. Building on this initial conversation Tom put together a listing of properties to physically tour, and then served as a consultant as to what each of the  properties pros and cons were with respect to what my business needs were. Tom also was invaluable in working as the point person for the lease negotiations with my end result of securing an office space that met my business needs, was within budget, and overall far exceeded expectations. I would highly recommend TDK Commercial Advisors for any commercial real estate needs.”
—Jim J.,  At  Work Group

“Just wanted to write and thank you for your tremendous help earlier this year with my client’s lease event. As you know, this is a large client for me, but they needed a lot of help on their small Philly office. Tough to get an outside broker excited about working for a fraction of an already small fee, yet the importance of this assignment, to me, far outweighed the economics to you. Despite their tiny requirement, you did a top-notch job. You went way above and beyond in taking the time, to not only tour them extensively through the market, but also to negotiate hard on their behalf so they would realize all the concessions they could. At the end of the day, you negotiated a below-market deal for them on brand new space that typically only the largest clients would ever realize. You made it seamless and worry-free for them, though I know firsthand how many emails you had to deal with to get there. They are extremely happy with the result. Thank you for treating my client with the same level of professionalism that you would give your largest clients. It made a tremendous difference in their lease experience and you have earned all my Philly business for life. It was an absolute pleasure working with you.“
—Peter I., LesseeCRE, Inc.
