August 2, 2013 § Leave a comment

Currently a managing principal with CresaPartners, LLC, in Washington, D.C., Mindy W. Saffer is a veteran real estate broker focused on tenant representation in complex transactions, leasing management, and capital markets matters. A distinct area in which Mindy Saffer and her team assist clients is in optimizing location planning.

For businesses spanning a variety of commercial, industrial, and retail industries, location planning is of critical value. Of particular importance is a careful evaluation of labor dynamics specific to the potential corporate location. Companies must take time to assess the availability of qualified labor in the region, as well as demand for these employees from competitors. Worker accessibility to the workplace is critical, as are sufficient telecommunications, power, and other basic infrastructure. With the greater Washington, D.C., area offering abundant physical infrastructure, another key consideration is labor recruitment and attrition, and costs associated with retaining highest quality employees. Professionals such as Mindy Weiss Saffer are committed to assisting fully in the screening process and assessing the most promising business locations within specific regions.
