“When we were looking to for a larger office, the staff at Empire Properties bent over backwards to find the right space at an affordable price. Being a small non-profit organization, I really felt that Empire took a personal interest in helping us find the best rental situation. It's also nice to have a landlord that has a genuine interest in our office and its success rather than just the business relationship.”

“Foundry Zero's initial encounter with Greg Hatem and Empire Properties yielded an engaged relationship, which provided us with a number of valuable options to maximize our decision-making process. Finally settling on an office space that was in restoration, Empire kept us in the loop weekly of its progress. In fact, by being informed of various development details, we became so interested that were invited to be involved closely with some of the final decision-making, which went beyond the typical business up-fit. And, of course, all decisions were made in the context of the building’s historic preservation.

“The resulting feelings were that Empire was investing in more than just finishing a space for leasing to a tenant, but in a long-term mutually beneficial relationship. No more a statement could be true for us than when our business went into transition. Empire Properties worked with us to resettle into another office space and approached compensation in a fair and balanced manner. Since then, we have enjoyed observing the day-to-day activities of care and maintenance Empire has provided and the overall friendliness and accommodation of the staff. When growth again becomes an issue, we will come to Empire first for our needs.”

“The first time I met with Empire Properties’ representatives to look at office spaces in downtown Raleigh, they talked of building relationships with their tenants. Those words stayed in my mind, and I can say that they have done that and much more. Response to requests, questions, concerns and other tenant needs is quick and thorough, and I feel that there is a real sense of community between the tenants (in all of their buildings) and Empire employees. I look forward to many years as an Empire tenant.”

“As a tenant in downtown Raleigh for more than 25 years, I have leased office space in many buildings from various landlords, all quite different. Greg Hatem and Empire Properties, however, are truly exceptional. With respect and care, they restore and preserve many older buildings, always doing it the right way. They treat tenants as family, and I feel very fortunate to be one. Not only do my colleagues and I enjoy a glorious old building (with windows that open!), but we also get to work with an incredibly wonderful landlord and receive prompt help from friendly, professional staff.
Who could want more?”
