Marketing Services: We dominate the market in leasing and sales of retail properties. This scale provides synergy and leverage that directly benefits owners with results. Creating, protecting, or increasing value is the goal of all marketing campaigns.
- Leased properties are analyzed to create a plan for maximizing income which indicates the best tenants to occupy the property at the highest rates. Marketing directly to these tenant groups efficiently identifies prospects.
- For-sale assets are priced by market comparison and demand analysis that only market knowledge can provide. Aggressive direct marketing to specific buyer groups locates the highest-price buyer.
- Our development brokerage services range from identifying development sites to fully engaging in the development process.
Services and value we provide include site planning and tenant mix, design input, parking impacts, pro forma economics, and municipal approval strategies and expert opinions. Our knowledge in negotiating rates, sales, and terms and on how tenants and buyers get deals approved creates value well beyond finding the interested party.
Goodman Real Estate Services Group currently lists over 10 million square feet of existing shopping center space, surplus properties, and new developments plus acres of vacant land. Also, we have successfully pre-leased over 4 million square feet, supplying the deals needed to successfully develop numerous properties into power, community, and lifestyle shopping centers.
The large-scale leasing and sale of multiple properties in various areas, combined with our tenant representation business, provides market and occupier knowledge that benefits all of our property marketing campaigns.
Surplus Properties: Goodman Real Estate Services Group has developed lasting relationships with companies that must dispose of leased or owned assets. We understand that these transactions may not be based on typical industry circumstances. The assets or liabilities of a company don’t always simply get sold or leased. These deals often involve various financial, legal, or operational interests that must be considered and balanced with actual market conditions.
Locating users and buyers and negotiating transactions start with our typical marketing services but is aided by our tenant representation business and perspective. Our experience representing the buyer’s side has given us the knowledge of the user we are looking for and with whom we will negotiate.
Years of experience on all sides of transactions and involvement with many different businesses such as institutional clients, retailers, and private business owners provides our clients with professional surplus real estate disposition services.
