Word selection can make or break any piece of writing, whether fiction or non-fiction. Put my experience to work for you.

Through my experience with Lease Abstraction, I have gained a true appreciation for the art of using language, and a unique understanding of how each correct word selection has the power to clearly define the meaning intended by the author. So whether you're looking for assistance to edit a previously written piece of work, or only have the bare bones of what you want to convey, my skills will aid you in effectively...

Service Description

Since becoming an independent contractor and forming my company in 2003, I have read and abstracted over 1,200 Leases for a diverse range of international retailers, each with unique requirements.

Unless you have worked directly with Lease Administration chances are you have never heard of Lease Abstraction, so you may be asking "What exactly is Lease Abstracting?" Simply put, after a Lease is executed between a Landlord and a Tenant, the full Lease is read and all vital information, such as financial obligations, termination rights, and maintenance obligations for both parties, is interpreted, summarized and recorded in a format to suit the client's needs. The summary form in turn is used within a retailer's corporate office to administer the multitude of Lease obligations. The Lease Abstract is to corporate retail officials what Coles/Cliffs Notes are to students.

How can my experience help you? Lease Abstraction requires a keen attention to detail, and analysis of each word's placement to ensure that the true meaning of each clause is captured and clearly presented to the reader. These acquired skills are both practical and essential to almost all forms of writing.

Prior to becoming an independent contractor, I worked for over 3 years at Tequila Software (acquired by Accruent), the creators of a program called RetaiLease, which was used by companies such as Liz Claiborne, Cineplex Entertainment, GNC, Hot Topic and Zale Corporation. During my time at the company...
