About Us

Our Strategy

Today, most companies in North America must navigate a complex, ever-evolving landscape. From global competition to rising energy costs, logistical challenges and fluctuating macroeconomic conditions, the old rules of the business world no longer apply. Firms must also contend with an abrupt shift in the commercial real estate market, which means throwing decades of conventional wisdom out the window.

Integrated Real Estate Solutions, Inc. understands the important role office space, manufacturing facilities or distribution space play in keeping companies competitive in the current economic environment. We’ll work closely with your team to understand fully your business requirements and space needs, and tailor an approach around your specific goals.

You’ll also never doubt our loyalty. As an independent brokerage, we only represent tenants and buyers in commercial real estate transactions, representing your interests and advocating on your behalf exclusively throughout the process. Lessors and sellers also pay our commissions, so our full-service leasing services are free for our clients.
