Investment Services & Capital
At Thompson Hennessey & Partners, we do more than sell and finance real estate. We are financial engineers who do not simply process transactions –we create opportunities that yield substantial financial value for our clients. While we are highly experienced in efficiently executing investment sales, what we are really known for is our ability to facilitate many of the most creative and valuable financial transactions in the industry. Notable off-market transactions include restructuring Thompson Reuters 386,000 SF lease to facilitate a $98MM recapitalization of the property, negotiating the $122MM sale-leaseback of MetLife’s Boston Headquarters in which we also reduced the company’s overhead by 50%, the sale of over 44 buildings for the Boston Wharf Co in three transactions for nearly $500MM, and refinancing a 190,000 SF distribution center leased to Stonewall Kitchen in order to substantially reduce the company’s rent.
Our understanding of the capital stack coupled with our experience working exclusive on behalf of companies enables us to structure opportunities that financially benefit both investor and tenant.
While our clients understand the value we bring to every financial opportunity, we are also recognized by our peers for our unique abilities having been awarded the “Investment Sale of the Year” and “Deal of the Year” on numerous occasions.
Regardless of the size or complexity of your real estate, whether you are buyer or seller, business owner, or tenant seeking to leverage the value of your lease for financial benefit, our experienced team will insure you exceed your expectations.

When you hire us to sell a property, act as your agent buying a property, or finance a property, we represent you in the transaction as your fiduciary agent.
The financial markets are constantly shifting, and financial institutions also will change their lending parameters to adjust to those shifts. Given how important it is to be able to secure a binding financial commitment with a surety of closure, it is important to you have an experience advocate that looks for every possible financial option available and engages in a competitive process to secure the most favorable terms for you; including from your own bank.
When we are selling a property on your behalf, a brokerage fee is part of the transaction which can be shared if another broker represents a buyer. Debt and Equity placement fees are also included as part of the transaction and all are paid at the closing. Fees are determined as a percentage of the transaction value based on industry standards.
A Sale/Lease back is a financial instrument where a company that also owns its real estate structures a market rate lease (typically long-term) and then sells the property to an investor. There are many components to this, but they are very attractive to real estate investors and can be a great way for a business owner to raise money without incumbering a balance sheet.
