Real Estate Asset Strategies, like the name suggests, is focused on strategically enhancing the value of our clients’ real estate assets. Our non-traditional tactic combines a short and long term approach to creating and maintaining value. This new approach combines, in many cases, the original acquisition with assertive professional management and implementation of an exit strategy centered around our clients’ goals and objectives and their investment time frame. When we are able to apply this strategy, we consistently see significantly increased cash flow and enhanced value in each of our client’s assets. We apply this same strategic focus when working with tenants in establishing valid cost effective lease terms that protect and fit our leasing clients’ short and long term real estate needs. A solid lease strategy with each tenant also protects the Landlord’s interests.
This new level of real estate service combining acquisition, disposition, development, property and facility management is supported by our group’s extensive experience in all these disciplines.
