Our experienced professionals provide real estate expertise to mid-cap and larger corporations and help businesses of all sizes use real estate to improve their bottom line. By offering integrated workplace solutions that produce meaningful returns in profit, performance and value, we move real estate from being a liability to an asset.
We help our clients align their real estate to support their strategic business, financial and operational objectives. Whether you’re looking to relocate, expand, consolidate or sublease your current commercial space, we will stand beside you every step of the way – through planning, programming, construction and move-in. Our services include strategic planning, lease/renewal negotiations, sublease consultation, project management and property acquisition and disposition.
GIS & Market Analytics
Our Geographic Information Systems (GIS) & Market Analytics group provides world-class analytical tools that aid in the real estate decision-making process using a robust collection of demographic, land, infrastructure and economic data. Our services include custom market statistics, customized maps and aerial photographs, property intelligence and competition analysis. We can provide customized information in a wide variety of formats, including statistical tables, 3D modeling, composite images and large-format prints.
Land sales require a special level of expertise and understanding, and our land professionals have the knowledge you need to identify where the opportunities are before the rest of the market takes notice. Our understanding of land valuation and the entitlement process ensures that you can procure the right parcel for your purpose at the right price.
Real Estate Advisory
You need your company’s commercial real estate to be a real asset, not just a line item on the balance sheet. We can help make that happen by designing a real estate strategy that complements your business strategy and creates value at every turn. We provide in-depth real estate consulting for corporations and other space users across multiple disciplines, including transaction management, portfolio management, site selection and strategic planning. Our comprehensive platform of services allows us to custom-fit a solution for your organization. Whether you’re looking for someone to develop a strategic plan, actively manage your real estate portfolio, or identify potential new locations for your business, our advisors will work with you to achieve the results your business needs.
Having a plan that aligns your company’s real estate with the business goals is an often-overlooked opportunity. We can help you identify where your company’s real estate is less of an asset than it could be, and we work with you to develop a plan that accommodates today’s needs and provides flexibility for the future. Our goal is to provide your company’s leadership with the tools to make fully informed real estate decisions. When you work with our Strategic Planning professionals, you get a partner in the real estate business who will help you develop short- and long-term action plans to optimize your real estate portfolio.
We’re in the business of real estate. When it comes to your organization’s real estate transactions, why not let us take care of the details so you can focus on your core operations? Our real estate transaction management services include managing the entire real estate portfolio with responsibility for day-to-day action items, completing transactions to acquire and dispose of real estate, performing market analysis and own-versus-lease analysis, negotiating transaction terms on your behalf and even organizing your real estate portfolio using a web-based lease administration system.
When it comes to successfully managing commercial real estate projects, you need a project leader who can orchestrate all the moving parts and keep your project on track. You expect solutions, integrated performance, timely and specific communications, and the ability to service needs everywhere while delivering value during every step in the process. Our project managers act as the single point of responsibility by leading, supporting and quarterbacking all activities necessary for meeting project objectives. We manage the needs assessment, design, construction and project delivery process for owners and users of commercial real estate properties of all sizes. We are solution-focused, client-centric, knowledgeable and trusted real estate advisors who cultivate and orchestrate delivery teams for one sole purpose: project success delivered in a cost-effective and high-quality manner.
We partner with our clients to improve operating efficiencies for their leased or owned facilities with a focus on reducing costs, enhancing quality and improving processes. We provide building operations management and maintenance, energy management, space planning and administrative support. As our client, you’ll be able to leverage ServicExpress, our national network of more than 45,000 pre-qualified vendors in more than 80 service categories covering 1,150 cities throughout North America. Our sustainability program can help you achieve LEED certification for your facilities or simply operate efficiently while being more “green.”
Our comprehensive, process-driven approach to managing your company’s real estate contracts creates a more thorough picture of real estate’s impact on your overall business. We provide accurate, real-time reports that enable you to make decisions based on more than just headcount, and all of your real estate information will be available through our secured, proprietary web-based portal, ensuring that you can access your customized reports any time, anywhere. Services can include lease analysis and administration, real estate and financial portfolio reporting, rent management, sublease management, property tax appeals and occupancy cost reviews. We’ll help you track critical contract dates and audit your leases to make sure your company’s real estate is an effective part of your balance sheet.
Finding the right location for your business is a process. Doing it well involves an overwhelming amount of data ranging from traffic flow patterns to employee demographics to competitor locations. Our expertise in site selection can help simplify the process. We collaborate with you to understand the business drivers behind each site selection, and then we sort through all the data to provide the right mix of information and an appropriate number of site options that align with your business profile. We’ll help you select the best possible location for your business, making it an asset that drives business profits rather than just another expense on the financial statement.
We believe improving energy efficiency and reducing water consumption and waste in all commercial properties is vital to the long-term health of the property and the health of our communities. We know that being “green” also lowers costs for both tenants and owners. A green building uses less energy (lower electric and heating bills), generates less waste (more recyclables), and provides a healthier workplace for employees (lower healthcare costs). We can help you achieve whatever level of sustainability is right for your property through evaluating the possibilities, establishing a plan of action, and implementing strategies that are appropriate for each property. Any company that occupies space can benefit from our range of services from basic evaluations to helping you achieve LEED certification.
