Business & Investment

Are your real estate needs more about starting a business, making an investment or turning a profit than buying or selling a home? Whether you're looking for commercial space to house your business, investing in rental property, or trying to turn your vacation home into a revenue generator through the short-term rental market, we provide the experience, expertise and personalized service you need to help you achieve your goals.

S E R V I C E S :

  • Investment profitability/use analysis 

Making a smart investment in commercial or rental property requires more than just betting that you can rent it or sell it for more than you're paying. How can the property be used? What are the needs in the market? What is the potential for the property? What price will the market bear? These are questions for which you need answers, not just assumptions. Our commercial real estate experts can help you devise an informed, detailed plan to reduce your risk and maximize your profits.

  • Commercial investments/small business planning consultation

Sometimes buying or leasing a property is more than just a real estate transaction – it’s part of a business plan. That means there’s no margin for error like overpaying, encountering unexpected costs or overestimating revenue potential. Our commercial real estate experts can help you analyze the opportunities, minimize the risks and craft a step-by-step plan for success.

  • Risk management and compliance specialist

You shouldn’t need to be a lawyer, actuary or insurance agent to invest in commercial real estate. Our commercial real estate experts can help you understand and navigate the complex challenges that happen after you get the keys, so that you and your investment are protected every step of the way.

  • Landlord and tenant consultation

No matter which side of a rent/lease transaction you're on, you want to make sure that your interests are protected and the person on the other side is someone you can trust. We take the guess work out of it by providing qualified and thorough third-party consultation to ensure that everyone wins.

  • Short-term rental investment consulting and management

The short-term rental market is growing quickly and represents tremendous opportunity for property owners, but it’s not quite so simple as snapping a few photos with your phone and creating a listing on Airbnb. What is the demand in your market? What laws do you need to know? What should you charge? How do you make your property stand out from the others? These are questions we can help you answer to get the most out of your assets.

In addition to onboarding your short term rental, we will manage it for you. We have been managing “Airbnb’s” since before Airbnb existed. Let us make it easy for you.

  • Relocation

Relocating yourself, your family or your business is not always as simple as finding a place to live or work. It can require advanced, detailed knowledge of the market, the neighborhoods, taxes, construction costs, transportation and many other factors. Our expert team can operate nationally and internationally to find the answers you need to make your next move your best move.

 

Contracts, Transactions & Taxes

The success of your real estate investment depends on details like the terms of the contract, tax rates and complex financial transactions. Most real estate agencies have to refer their clients to third party servicers to provide that kind of expertise, but we have it in-house. Among our team we have an attorney, two MBAs and a former banker, so we can offer services far beyond a traditional real estate agency to support you every step of the way.
