Our mission is to save our users' time and money on their real estate operating costs. We provide them the assurance that they have maximized their real estate solution and we provide the decision makers within the company the documentation required to justify the results.
At AQUILA Commercial, we leverage our experience working in three national real estate firms to provide best practices from within the industry. We are able to utilize market information from our Asset Services Group and Investment Advisory Services Group to stay one step ahead of the market. AQUILA Commercial employs and retains the highest quality talent in the industry to utilize the information we receive and provide innovative ways to develop solutions for the end user that will minimize costs and risks and maximize flexibility.
We limit the number of users we serve allowing us to focus on the specific needs of each one.
“AQUILA Commercial exceeded all expectations as our brokers on the acquisition of 1300 Guadalupe. Not only did they find the building quickly, they introduced us to the rest of the ownership group and acquired a financial institution to fund the deal. They made the process simple, easy, and above all else, lucrative.”
Clayton Little, AIA, Noack-Little Architects
“As a growing start-up, our company needed the expertise and attention we found in the professionals at AQUILA. They not only helped us find the right property, but they understood our needs, counseled us and represented us in our negotiations with the landlord. They proposed solutions to our needs with innovative terms on which all parties could agree – including terms that saved us well over $300 thousand. Not only were we served well by AQUILA’s responsiveness, years of experience and depth of knowledge in all aspects of the Austin commercial real estate market, everyone at Total Immersion Software, Inc., found it a pleasure to work with such affable professionals.”
General Counsel, Total Immersion Software
“AQUILA was highly recommended to us by a colleague who had used them in the past to negotiate a 25,000 sf lease on their behalf. After having now used them to help us negotiate two separate projects (5,000sf and 12,000sf), I see why. Simply put, they get it. They treated the project like it was their own. They are knowledgeable, focused on quality, and they offer excellent counsel. AQUILA helped us find and close on an incredible deal that saved us a significant amount of money. I will definitely use AQUILA Commercial for all future projects and I highly recommend their services.”
General Manager, Total Immersion Software
“Honestly, throughout the entire experience (a 9 month property search, a fairly extensive buildout, move-in, and changes after we’d moved in), there wasn’t a single thing that I thought they could have done better. We were repeatedly amazed by their attentiveness to our needs, their explanations of the business property landscape, the concessions they wrung from all other parties with whom we dealt, and their management of the whole project start to finish. It was a stellar experience, and if/when we move again or expand our facilities, I will go directly to AQUILA without hesitation. The AQUILA team saved us over half a million dollars by the time all was said and done.”
Senior Director, Service operations, Trion World Network
“The process of finding a new office for our company was smooth and pleasant thanks to the professionalism and dedication of the AQUILA Commercial team. They totally understood our needs and shared our desire to find a good deal. They not only found a good one, Aquila helped us to negotiate the conditions of the contract and eventually get the office lease for half of the market price -- with all the furniture for free! I highly recommend AQUILA Commercial for anybody who is seeking to find a perfect office place in Austin.”
Maria Gvardeitseva, iTransitions US
“I would like to share that we have enjoyed the entire process, found AQUILA to be very knowledgeable and diligent, and are glad that we worked with you. I do believe that we have found an excellent new place due to your efforts. It will be our pleasure to offer our highest reference to any of your future clients.”
“This was the first time we used exclusive representation for a site search, and that proved to be a smart move for us. When you’re trying to find one of the larger spaces in town, you’re bombarded with information. AQUILA helped us analyze the market, examine other related transactions, and manage our build-out. They have a well-orchestrated system that takes a client from an initial search through contract close.”
Tim Eisenman, BancVue
“I would highly recommend AQUILA to anyone considering a commercial real estate transaction in Austin, Texas. Sloan and his team provided the perfect combination of expertise and local knowledge to help us negotiate the best deal. They gave us sound advice and followed a disciplined process. They took the time to understand our needs. AQUILA always had our best interests in mind which led to a successful transaction.”
Chief Financial Officer, Sheshunoff Consulting + Solutions
“I interviewed a number of brokers, but I felt that AQUILA was the total package. They have experience fulfilling the needs of gaming companies and expert real estate knowledge that makes them the perfect fit for me. AQUILA assisted me with every step from finding a space to lease negotiation and build-out with project management support to move-in. AQUILA Commercial is my first choice for all future projects.”
Director of Business Operations, Certain Affinity
“Efficiently completing our office/warehouse remodeling project on schedule would have been impossible without the experienced guidance from the AQUILA team. Todd and Dustin proved instrumental in every step of the process leveraging their keen knowledge of the construction industry. Hiring them was one of the best decisions we made for this project and we feel that they more than paid for the associated fee through cost savings and preventing mistakes we would have made by attempting this ourselves.”
CFO, YETI Coolers
“I am so grateful to Todd Tebbe and Dustin Hogzett of AQUILA Project Management Services. These gentlemen are amazing at what they do and their passion and dedication shows in every interaction. Todd and Dustin made sure that our build out was done to Certain Affinity’s satisfaction while staying on time and on budget. The duo has a wealth of experience and keeps customer service as a top priority. I couldn’t have completed this project without them. I highly recommend Todd and Dustin and I will most certainly use them again on our next project.”
Director of Business Operations, Certain Affinity, Inc.
“I really appreciate AQUILA negotiating and working on our behalf. That has proven to be one of the smoothest parts of the real estate process.”
Laura Kelly, The University of Texas
““When you start a small business, it makes a huge difference when service providers not only provide top-notch service, but also believe in your business and want to see you succeed. That's how we feel about AQUILA Commercial. They helped us find a great home for our studio, and they're one of our biggest supporters! Thanks to everyone there - what a great company!””
Owner & Founder, Fuerte Fitness
“The AQUILA team came highly recommended to us from other people and companies we knew in our industry. They worked hard for us on over 20 potential new spaces and showed us breakouts on all our important features. In the end they saved us hundreds of thousands of dollars on a space that fits our needs exactly. AQUILA walked us through the process from beginning to end. They spent a lot of time finding the right property, listened to all of our concerns and then helped us in selecting the right architects and contractors to build out our new space. I’m positive we will use them in our next space acquisition.”
Glen Van Datta,
General Manager, Trion World Network
“I was impressed with AQUILA's expertise, experience, and work ethic. The value and savings they brought to us were extraordinary.”
Gregory M. Aymond,
Bishop of Austin
“Our experience with the AQUILA team was top notch. They professionally and confidently guided us through a tricky, unconventional lease for our schools. Their great work impacts our students every day: having a safe, predictable, and beautiful environment where our children learn is critical to their educational experience. We are lucky to have worked with them.”
Founder & CEO, KIPP Austin Public Schools
“The AQUILA team worked hard to understand our real estate needs and then did a great job of identifying the right properties, negotiating the best deal, and making sure we had a smooth transition to our new space. The AQUILA team then turned out to be much more than a leasing agent for Bigfoot Networks. They actually introduced us to companies in town that we are now doing business with and continue be an advocate for our Company. There is no doubt that we will use them again.”
Co-Founder/General Manager, Bigfoot Networks
“The team at AQUILA Commercial is fantastic. Their knowledge, expertise, and professionalism always exceeded our expectations. Combined with their ability to negotiate our leases to provide the best business opportunities for our company, we highly recommend them and will continue to use their services for our future leasing needs.”
South Florida Regional Owner, Keller Williams Realty
“The AQUILA Commercial team added value at every stage of our office lease process, from surveying the market, to deal strategy, to negotiating terms at the macro and micro level, to helping with post-closing logistics. I wouldn't want to go through the process again without them.”
General Counsel, RGM Advisors
“You and your company are the best!
You can be sure that given an opportunity we will use your services in the future and refer to you often.
