Portfolio Planning

Our team of professionals review all aspects of a real estate portfolio and make recommendations for better alignment with an organization's business goals and objectives. Example solutions could include:

  • Logistics costs could be lowered by consolidating two distribution facilities and moving to a new location.
  • Certain mission critical special purpose assets should be owned, all other assets should be leased
  • New workplace strategies could lower costs and enhance productivity
  • Labor intensive functions should be moved to low cost labor environments
  • Leases in weak markets should be extended
  • New technology could improve real estate decision making
  • Certain functions should be outsourced

Well planned development and execution of these business solutions can have major implications for an organization's bottom line and balance sheet.
