LEASING AND SALES
When you work with Zaepfel, it’s an easy process – guaranteed. That’s because you’ll deal directly with the owners from step one, so your negotiations will be streamlined and smooth. There are no salesmen involved, just decision makers – you and us.
We want your business to stay at the top of its game. And if that means you need more space or less space, we will service your needs. Our lease buyouts can place your business in a better facility with cheaper payments. Whether you need to relocate, expand, or simply move out of an outdated facility, Zaepfel has many acres of available space for you to choose from.
And our long-standing relationships with several banks can help you secure the financial backing you need to move your project along.
Our construction division is managed by project, so each project is treated equally. Each client’s project follows this process:
•Initiation - Authorizing the project.
•Planning - The need to define and select the best appropriate methods to meet the specific needs for which the project was created.
•Execution - Coordinating the personnel and resources to carry out the project plan.
•Control - Controlling the project by constantly monitoring and measuring its progression, identifying any variances or potential risks that could affect the plan so that corrective measures can be taken when necessary.
•Closing - Tenant or owner acceptance of the project and all formalized documentation to attain project closure and Certificate of Occupancy.
