About

Westwood Net Lease Advisors

When it comes to selecting the optimal way to invest your money, you need advisors, not salespeople. Like no other firm in the United States, the Westwood team focuses on representing and advising buyers who seek to acquire NNN lease properties for the first time, seasoned commercial real estate investors, and those who have utilized the 1031 exchange over the years.

Westwood Corporate Headquarters

The NNN Buyer-Advisor Journey

When you work with one of our advisors, first we set out to understand your goals – financial, family, lifestyle, and more. By presenting sample investments, we quickly come to fully understand your risk tolerance and narrow the range of investments to those optimized for your specific situation and needs.

We scour our national database of both on and off-market properties, communicate daily with our industry connections, including developers and private sellers, and present you with suitable NNN lease property options. We share detailed financial projections, accompanied by quantified and qualified assessments of the opportunities and risks.

Our team is thorough as we take a deep dive into existing leases and terms, the detailed finances of the tenant, and the stability of the overall industry. This allows us to provide a comprehensive understanding of the potential NNN lease investment, so you are prepared, equipped, and educated. Knowledge empowers you to make the right decision for your specific situation and needs.

No other firm in the nation applies this methodical, advisory approach to the NNN investment process.

“Proprietary digital tools are important for buyers’ advisors, but investors searching for an optimal NNN investment still need personal attention and the knowledge a buyer-advisor relationship offers. With a triple-net lease transaction, there’s too much at stake to shop online and buy from the seller’s agent.”

Why Use a NNN Lease Advisor?

A Westwood Net Lease Advisor listens to and uncovers your needs, risk tolerance, and investment goals, then finds solutions that fit that framework. Our advisory helps you learn and assess what properties could work and, just as importantly, which ones won’t be in your best interests.

Westwood Advisors carefully pre-qualify and educate everyone with whom we work, so you receive preferential treatment from our nationwide network of sellers and their agents. This means:

  • You frequently receive the first opportunity to buy a property before it goes on the market.
  • You are positioned for priority when it comes to letters of intent and contract acceptance.

We are true advisors, not order-takers. Our goal is to be your most trusted representative when it comes to buying or selling single-tenant retail properties or any type of commercial real estate. Given that our firm is highly specialized, our advisors offer in-depth knowledge of the net lease market which allows you to make the most well-informed and educated decisions.
