Companies who are looking for space in the Orange County and LA markets in southern California now have a “Tenant Guardian” to ensure they are protected and valued during increasingly complex real estate transactions; Exis Global, Inc., is excited to welcome Tenant Guardian to our growing platform of best-in-class tenant representation firms.

Tenant Guardian is a boutique commercial real estate firm focused solely on saving tenants money – they restructure current leases, recover over-billings by landlords, and leverage the market to maximize concessions when negotiating lease renewals or relocations. Their process is based on three simple concepts: sound strategy, tenacious negotiation, and rigorous execution.

President and founder John Sabourin has been representing tenants in the commercial real estate sector since 1989. He and his company have represented Fortune 500 companies such as Aecom, CIGNA, Rockwell Collins, and Wells Fargo. John has managed over 13 million square feet of real estate transactions across the US and in multiple countries around the world. He’s been highly recruited by, and worked for, some of the biggest names in the industry, including Colliers, Studley, and CBRE.

“Tenant Guardian has prided itself on being the best-in-class tenant representation in the Orange County area,” said Sabourin. “And now, through Exis, we can provide these services to our clients anywhere they want to be around the globe.”

Exis Inc. is a global tenant representation corporation servicing thousands of clients worldwide. As a member-owned organization exclusively focused on providing excellence in conflict-free tenant representation to corporations, Exis was formed to provide tenants around the world with a passionate advocate at the negotiating table wherever their business operations take them.

Exis’s 27 member firms individually service some of the largest and most respected employers around the world, including numerous Fortune 500 companies, as well as small, medium and large organizations and corporations in industries as diverse as healthcare, legal, life science, technology, manufacturing, higher education, telecommunications and professional services.

“Having already served clients throughout the United States, Tenant Guardian further expands the Exis model of delivering the highest quality, conflict-free tenant representation services for its clients wherever they are located,” said Neil Schneider, Exis Co-Chairman and Principal at McCall & Almy (Boston, MA). “We’re thrilled to have Tenant Guardian deliver the Exis global value proposition in this important west coast location.”

With offices currently based in more than 45 metropolitan areas around the world, Exis provides its members’ clients with a global presence, greater insight into key geographic markets, and added strength in negotiation to assist with their national and international real estate requirements. At the same time, the organizational structure of Exis allows each member firm to maintain its independence and business agility.

Exis members are currently located in key markets across North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia, with several additional locations to be announced in 2019.
