Trent Frankum and his team at TFA helped us immensely in looking at commercial lease options for our office space requirement. He spent a lot of time understanding our needs, and as we reviewed properties he was able to determine exactly what we needed. Tan, Frankum & Associates went beyond my expectations and experience in the contract negotiation, and Trent’s attention to detail was comforting. He has a very thorough knowledge of the Manila real estate market, contract negotiation, and pitfalls. I would without any doubt use him again for any of XP Solutions’ real estate requirements.

I am writing this letter of recommendation on behalf of Trent Frankum and his team at Tan, Frankum & Associates (TFA),Inc. We worked with Trent in the acquisition of our new call center facility located in Dasmarinas, Cavite. Trent acted as our tenant representative from the start of the project until completion,including post-signing coordination with our contractors for the build out of the 6,000 plus square meter facility.
In addition to Trent’s excellent work,he is a man of integrity. Trent’s excellent negotiation skills,tenacity, sound technical ability and overall passion and effectiveness at his job are enhanced by his personal character and integrity. I would highly recommend Trent Frankum to anyone looking for a talented, ethical, professional, committed and effective commercial broker who also has an outstanding attitude and solid reputation for fiduciary execution. We were truly pleased and impressed with the outstanding person Trent Frankum is and the excellent job he did for our company!
The office building which we have occupied for more than 20 years was sold by the owner. Our lease contract was pre-terminated and we were given only 6 months to relocate. We tapped the services of TFA and in a short period of time they were able to provide us with a number of options meeting our requirements. They were very helpful in our negotiation of the lease. I think we could not have done it this fast if not for Tan, Frankum & Associates.

We are very glad to have worked with Tan, Frankum & Associates.
Ten is more professional than most brokers we have ever worked with (even if she just recently passed the licensure exam). She was very accommodating all along especially when dealing with the bank, city hall, insurance, building admin et al. You guys showed us the property that fit our organization and you were not just after the sale or commission.
Tan, Frankum & Associates listened to what we wanted and they presented what we needed.
We look forward to working with you again.
