Commercial Brokerage Services

The mission of our brokerage division is to constantly drive value for our clients in their commercial real estate activities and holdings.

Dohring Ahern is a well-established, client focused, boutique firm in the Tampa market. By honing in on our high-level relationships, technical expertise and local market knowledge, we are able to leverage our strong ties within the community. Our experience in the Tampa Bay area combined with our access to the right tools enable us to ensure our clients can make well-informed decisions.

Whether you need help finding tenants or selling your property, our brokerage team will provide a custom plan to help your property reach the maximum potential customers and negotiate the best return on your investment. As commercial brokers we strive to fully understand your needs and offer you multiple services based on our access to comprehensive data including commercial sale and lease listings and area information such as lease rates, cap rates, sales price, average income, traffic counts and demographics.

Sales and Leasing of Owner Occupied & Investment Properties

We believe that selling or leasing owner-occupied and investment type properties should be a relatively stress-free process for our clients.

Our number one goal when listing a property for sale or lease is to bring as much value as possible to the property. Our experienced team listens to what you want to accomplish and helps you achieve it.  We strive to offer solutions that gain maximum exposure for properties resulting in the highest price and best terms possible.

Our Commercial Real Estate Brokers

  • Experience Matters – With more than 30 years of commercial real estate experience, we’ve been through and understand the commercial real estate cycles and have both short and long-term perspectives on real estate performance under a variety of economic conditions.
  • Right Team – All transactions require teamwork. Our team encompasses all the skill sets needed to help you win.  Teamwork makes the dream work.
  • Reliable Connections – It takes many professionals to complete a transaction. We have a vast network of service providers that we can refer, confident that they uphold our standards when working with you, our valued client.
  • Right Tools – Commercial real estate transactions are heavy with process. We use the latest industry processes and technologies to streamline all our communications and transactions while maintaining the personal attention expected from a boutique firm.

Tenant and Buyer Representation

It is imperative that a client’s best interests are top priority.  It is also vital to have experienced representation to make most informed decisions about your commercial real estate transactions. Having proper representation will help ensure a client does not sign an agreement that benefits the Seller or Landlord. Our consultants strive to negotiate the best terms for our clients and mitigate the risks and complications that are inherently present in the real estate transaction.  This allows our clients to focus on their business rather than the stress of a commercial real estate transaction.

Our brokerage team works with Buyers and Tenants to source, research and negotiate their commercial real estate needs.  We start by understanding your business needs, so we can find you the best property to reach your business goals.  Doing so saves our clients significant costs and time associated with the leasing and/or purchase of commercial property.  Leases as well as Purchase and Sale Agreements are technical legal documents with many important moving parts which can potentially turn into costly mistakes if not handled properly.  Our knowledge and experience give us the ability to bring tremendous value and minimize risks associated with purchases and leasing.

When thinking about Tenant or Buyer Representation:

  • Be sure you are gaining access to every potential opportunity.
  • Save thousands of dollars by hiring an expert negotiator.
  • Save hours of valuable time by outsourcing your commercial real estate needs.
  • Protect yourself from exposure to real estate’s inherent risk.

  • “Janet and I are really excited about the closing tomorrow. We have anticipated the selling of our office property for 2 and 1/2 years now. Once The Dohring Ahern got involved, things became much better culminating in the sale of the office. It is like the sun coming out with a double rainbow after a terrible storm with high winds and very heavy rain. THANK YOU!”

  • “I have know Abbey and the members of Dohring Ahern for over 14 years and have routinely had them involved in my commercial real estate in downtown Tampa. Abbey and her family have always done a tremendous job for me. Recently Abbey successfully represented me to lease my retail space on Franklin Street. She did everything that anyone would hope for and found a solid, credit worthy tenant who recently executed a 10 year lease at a wonderful rate. I could not be more pleased with Abbey and her team.”
