“In the end Cirrus kept things light, moved things forward and Dr. Chung could not be happier.”

I have worked for Henry Schein for over 12 years and it has been great to be part of a company and division that sets the trends rather than reacts to them. I spend the majority of my time with my dental customers focusing on their business needs and Cirrus has been there at every call concerning landlord tenant issues as well as office lease negotiations.
Coming Out on Top, After an Uphill Battle
I’ve worked with Cirrus many times in the past but most recently with Dr. Jeannie Chung whose dental office lease was approaching its expiry date. The landlord in this case was not willing to compromise on terms and was really looking to get maximum value from the doctor as the lease neared its end, knowing how difficult it would be for the good doctor to relocate.
Without getting much traction on her own with the landlord, Dr. Chung turned to Cirrus Consulting Group and their team of professional dental office lease negotiators for help. At the threat of bringing Cirrus on board, the landlord quickly tried to end all negotiations but Cirrus persisted.
Throughout the process Cirrus kept moved things forward, kept things light, and in the end, Dr. Chung could not be happier with her new lease.

“A fellow colleague referred Cirrus to me and I was very pleased with their services. I retained Cirrus in order to negotiate the renewal of my lease. My objective was to achieve a lower rental rate as well as obtain some leasehold improvements and a number of lease amendments. Cirrus was able to successfully gain nearly all of the amendments we had requested, including amendments to the surrender clause, ensuring I do not need to rip the space down to base standards when the lease ends; the assignment section, which will allow me to retain all the proceeds of the sale of my practice, and to walk away after the sale without being liable for rent in the event the new buyer defaults; a death and disability clause, protecting me in the event something were to happen to me and I could no longer work; and many more. They were also able to negotiate a rental reduction for me, saving me thousands of dollars a year, and has ensured the Landlord will be making a number of alterations to my space, at the Landlord’s expense.
Throughout the process, Cirrus was prompt, knowledgeable and conscientious. I am very glad I retained Cirrus, as the savings I have achieved as a result greatly outweigh their fees. I would not hesitate to work with Cirrus in the future, and would recommend them to anyone who is considering retaining their services.”
