Consulting – Our Process and Best Practices

Our Process

Due Diligence – uncovers all aspects of a potential project. This includes those in the conceptual or developmental stage, or perhaps one that is facing difficulties (sometimes known as "work-outs").
In the case of a work-out, we evaluate options, determining whether a change-of-use or renovation of the property is beneficial. Perhaps new funding via joint venture partnerships, loans or an outright sale of the asset is the best option.
Site Inspection – usually takes two to three days and includes the following:
Qualifying the Location – proximity to major roads, towns, industry, residential neighborhoods, schools, hospitals, points of interest, nearby amenities, and other services.
Land – visual inspection to determine suitability for construction.
Review of Existing Improvements – we take a close look at the property, including the age and overall condition of the buildings to determine potential usefulness.  We consider:
How the buildings are positioned on the property and what is the visibility from nearby properties and roads?
How do these buildings look compared to others in the area?
Business Audit – in the case of a commercial property, we determine its overall condition by conducting an analysis to determine any issues or items that are missing or out-of-date. Recommendations will be made for improvements.

Development Plan – an extension of the Business Audit, designed to add incremental value to the project.  Includes a full financial breakdown of every aspect of project costs (construction, sales/marketing, and management projections) as well as cash flow. The plan will be posted in a secure area of the project website so that qualified investors or purchasers can view the document.

Client Conference – to further understand the client's goals and objectives and relay our findings. We will prepare a thorough brief, which usually takes one week to complete.

Regardless of the result, we are your partner in making your property work to your best advantage.

Creative Concepts

We go to great lengths to look at each project individually and provide a customized solution to suit your needs. This is best done with an in-depth Feasibility Study in which we look closely at market conditions and other factors before making a recommendation regarding your project, which may involve a hybrid concept.

Our approach involves fitting the right product to your unique situation. Our hybrid models maximize the property’s potential through efficiency, something everyone should be paying attention to in today’s market.
