It has been our position to maintain a limited portfolio of properties, in order to ensure that each project receives the required attention to obtain the desired goals. It is also my policy to only be involved in projects where we are the exclusive agents.
“Time is our most valuable asset”
The modern shopping center has replaced “Main Street” as the primary marketplace for most Americans. Today’s busy lifestyle places a premium on shopping time and convenience. A well managed shopping center, no matter what its size, must offer the right mix of merchants, as well as having the “Curb Appeal” needed to draw customers and new tenants alike. Prosperous Tenants lead to a prosperous property.
“Challenges are inevitable, defeat is optional”
Because we specialize in shopping centers, we are sensitive to the needs of both owner and tenant. We’re available to show and visit the properties on reasonable short notice; When problems arise, they must be handled with dispatch and we are available to quickly resolve problems before they have a chance to become a contentious issue between owner and tenant, preserving tenancy and cash flow.
“We choose to dwell on possibilities or problems”
As your Agent, we will look after your interests, to carefully screen contractors, supervise their work and see that the integrity of your property is enhanced. When your property looks good, we look good. We will endeavor to keep your center fully occupied by actively soliciting new tenants and promoting your available space, while always being sensitive to your budgetary consideration.
“We will never be rich enough for pessimism”
