Before deciding to leave my relationship with a large, international brokerage firm, I thoroughly vetted several other global brokerage firms in the Philadelphia area. Frankly, something was missing. Some mentors of mine recommended that, before making a decision, I explore an opportunity with Tactix because of their strong reputation and unique business platform.

In an industry sometimes ridden with questionable salesmanship, I perceived Tactix to be a unique organization that strongly promoted the concept of honest and unbiased real estate advisory. Finally, I found that the strict tenant representation model, supported by a collaboration of professionals with storied financial and legal sagacity would allow me to provide my clients with the highest quality service. It was the right choice.

When I decided to leave Preferred Unlimited over four years ago, I considered almost every national, full service brokerage firm in the region. But after meeting with the principals of Tactix the decision was an easy one. The Tactix platform was different than any I had seen.

No other firm offered a genuine tenant advocacy model staffed with real estate professionals not salespeople with deep legal and financial backgrounds and no other firm offered me regular, direct access to the owners of the firm. Further, the values of the firm aligned with mine. I continue to be a staunch believer in our unique approach to real estate brokerage and look forward to contributing to the limitless potential of this company.

Tim joined Tactix in , continuing a year career in commercial real estate. Throughout his career, he advised public companies, institutional owners and private companies in site selection, new leases, lease restructurings, development and financing. When I started in the real estate industry over 25 years ago, each firm had its own database of information. It was a closely guarded secret of availabilities, market rates and sales prices.

However, over the past several years, information has become commoditized. It is easily accessible, and the various platforms that provide this information to the brokerage industry make it available equally to all. I selected Tactix for several reasons. They uncompromisingly work for the users of real estate. Their clients can be certain that there is no conflict of interest when they are at the negotiation table.

Most of the members of Tactix have advanced degrees representing a range of interests from law to the advanced sciences.

When I decided to make a career change to brokerage Tactix was the clear choice for me.
