ITRA to Assist Women's Enterprise Development Center Graduates with Real Estate Issues

White Plains, NY, December 20, 2007 --( The International Tenant Representative Alliance (ITRA) announced today that Ambar Realty Group, its White Plains , New York member firm, will assist graduates of the Women's Enterprise Development Center, Inc. (WEDC) throughout 2008. ITRA, with real estate brokerage representation in over 68 cities, is the leader in exclusively representing corporate buyers and tenants worldwide. Its members are corporate real estate brokers who advocate for their clients to find the most suitable space and then assist them in negotiating the best possible purchase or lease terms.

Located in White Plains, NY, Ambar Realty Group, LLC is a women-owned corporate real estate brokerage/tenant representative firm. Since inception, it has been operated by its co-founders Barbara Venturi and Amy Lerner. As do all ITRA members, Ambar solely represents the interests of companies seeking to lease or purchase commercial properties. By not representing landlords, developers, or REITS, Ambar/ITRA effectively and without conflict of loyalties evaluates and negotiates those properties best suited to its corporate clients' needs, rather than those that only meet the landlords' objectives.

"Like all ITRA members, we are committed to assisting our corporate clients in every way we can," said Barbara Venturi, one of Ambar/ITRA's principals. "As a Certified Women-Owned Business, we are also committed to helping graduates of the Women's Enterprise Development Center ," she continued, "and historically we have been successful at assisting their graduates with both securing their start-up space and meeting their growth needs."

The Women's Enterprise Development Center, Inc. (WEDC), a not-for-profit micro enterprise* development program, was formed in 1997 to help women achieve economic self-sufficiency through small business development. It was launched as a collaborative effort of the Westchester County Association, Westchester Community College, Westchester Association of Women Business Owners, and the New York State Division for Women (Lower Hudson Valley Advisory Council).

ITRA's administrative offices are located in Atlanta , Georgia . It is the largest organization to provide knowledgeable advice and real estate brokerage services exclusively to corporate clients through member firms located in cities throughout the world. The combination of international teamwork and local expertise makes ITRA members a leading force in each of their communities; they act as advocates for the rights of corporate tenants and buyers. Because ITRA member firms do not work for landlords or real estate management companies, they eliminate the potential conflict that exists with traditional brokers.
