Our Process

With a high level of financial acumen, our team of investment analysts provides the critical upfront thinking to make valuation and pricing recommendations, including comparable market studies, cash flow analysis, internal rate of return projections, operating statements, and development scenarios. Comprehensive offering memorandums and due diligence packages are prepared to ensure complete and accurate information is disclosed to prospective investors.

 

The property is brought to market with a strategy customized to client objectives, from that of a highly targeted campaign to a mass market approach. The listing broker is the key contact who leads the marketing process, and the entire investment sales force works as a team on the transaction. Prospective purchasers are carefully qualified, and our brokerage professionals guide all parties throughout each phase of every transaction, from consideration to closing.
