Finding a flexible, serviced office in London is no easy task. It can take up to several months to find the right fit without the right help. And in that space of time, your business could have changed in shape and size, which means you’ll have to head back to the drawing board to start your office search from scratch. That’s why Knight Frank has launched its Flexible Office Solution to help you find the perfect space – for free.
The world of work is changing. In today’s hustle landscape, real estate is recognised as a strategic tool for businesses. It’s not something you want to shortcut your way to.
That’s why the location, location, location mantra has expanded. Your search for office space doesn’t just stop at “where”. It now steps into “what”.
Location is, of course, of serious importance. But you also need to focus on questions like: What message does this office give to my clients? What do my employees need from an office space to thrive? What wellbeing initiatives does this building have?
You should treat your search for flexible office space as a new hire. It’s an asset that brings value to your business – and one that you want to get right.
So, amid myriad options, how do you find the right one?
In the same way that home-buyers would turn to property search engines to find the right house, then look to a broker to find the right mortgage, you should do the same for your flexible office search.
Here’s where Knight Frank’s Flexible Office Solutions team can help.
Earlier this year, we launched a new platform to offer a high-quality, service element to finding office space. It doesn’t matter whether you’re looking for a single desk or 20,000 sq ft of space. The team are dedicated to matching you with the right fit.
The service acts as both a flexible office search engine, a brokerage and a consultancy. You can search based on location, browse hundreds of offices, compile a shortlist and then leave the rest to the team.
Plus, it’s entirely free to use – from start to finish. There are no hidden fees, no surprises and no stresses. The team’s sole job is connecting you to your dream office.
Amanda and her team helped us find an office after seven months of trying to do it alone. They took the time to understand our requirements and get an idea of the style of offices we had in mind, which cut the hunt down considerably. Prompt responses and clear communication of timelines meant that we could be well prepared for the move!
Using a broker to find the right office space is less about timing and more about finding the perfect fit.
You could go directly to a provider and sign an office at a similar speed, but brokers will genuinely help you find the right space, alleviate the stress and guide you through your search.
There isn't one. The team earn a fee from the office space provider. The Knight Frank experience you get comes at no cost to you.
