ONE-ON-ONE: THE WAY WE BELIEVE IT SHOULD BE
Many members of the COLM Commercial team have been together for years. We’re committed to a strategic yet relationship-centered approach to our business.
Each COLM asset has a specific team dedicated solely to the management of that property.
From institutional investors to the individual making their initial real estate investment, COLM Commercial is there with you. Since many investment opportunities tend to evolve directly from the day-to-day sales and leasing of commercial properties, COLM Commercial’s brokers are ideally positioned to seek out and recommend potential investment properties that would best benefit each client’s portfolio. Our relationships are built on trust sustained on client satisfaction and returns.
We address investment requirements with a process that begins with a careful evaluation of each client’s unique investment position and a firm understanding of both the fiscal elements and the fine points of each transaction.
We then provide an in-depth analysis of available properties. In today’s changing market we aren’t able to rely solely on a CAP rate to see the overall health and future value of a property. As we move through the acquisition cycle, we step beyond a simple financial review and document how our internal leasing and property management can add value to the asset over time.
Whether the sale is simple or complex, it requires tremendous coordination to ensure a smooth transition of ownership. Sensitivity to the impact on tenants can make a huge difference in lease retention programs, directly affecting a new owner’s bottom line and a project’s image in the marketplace.
On the disposition side, we work closely with the broader brokerage community to quickly bring our clients a viable list of qualified and motivated buyers. Our years of experience and success in the markets we serve form a foundation of industry relationships to ensure that our clients retain competitive advantage over the long haul.
Developers and building owners can no longer afford to wait until prospective tenants come their way. An in depth knowledge of the market combined with aggressive marketing are requisites for a successful leasing program in today’s market.
COLM Commercial believes that quality tenants directly affects your property’s potential return on your investment. Whether you need to start from scratch or enhance an existing program, we analyze your needs and create a marketing strategy around them.
If your business needs space, we have access to the space you’re looking for, the features you want and the rent you want to pay. The COLM process takes into account the fact that businesses change. Your needs today aren’t what they were yesterday, and most likely will evolve by tomorrow – another reason why flexibility is at the top of our value system.
Our office team handles sales and marketing, investment and leasing of office space across the board – for local, regional and national clients, in every class of property. Our strength is our experience and determination. Using distinctive talents and expertise, we have proven that we have the capability to provide exceptional service.
