Richmond, VA (PRWEB) August 01, 2014
An institutional real estate investment firm finalized a contract this week with Allegiancy, selecting the Richmond, Va.-based real estate asset management firm to oversee the tactical and strategic operations of its newly acquired 430,000-square-foot office park in North Carolina.
The private equity real estate investor acquired Research Commons, a $62 million, five building office complex in Research Triangle Park, N.C., on July 10.
To execute a value-add lease up strategy at Research Commons, the new owners turned to Allegiancy, specialized in the commercial real estate asset management of office buildings, to maximize their return on investment and deliver results quickly.
“The senior principals at Allegiancy were heavily involved in this acquisition from the beginning,” said Steve Sadler, Allegiancy CEO. “The private equity investor needed an asset management partner that really understands the property itself and the business plan to maximize its value.”
For a property like Research Commons to thrive, a commercial real estate asset management firm needs both the capability and track record to not only make strategic decisions that maximize the potential of the property, but also provide tactical oversight to execute on those decisions.
“Allegiancy fits the bill and we are pleased to have this opportunity to serve sophisticated institutional investors,” Sadler said, noting the tremendous upside potential of the Research Commons portfolio.
“Fully realizing that potential will require focused leadership and attention to detail – which is perfect, because that is what we do here at Allegiancy,” Sadler said. “We don’t just want to protect the investment property owners made. We want to enhance it.”
While paying bills and collecting rents are an important part of operations and the support Allegiancy provides, Sadler said, “our job is to create enduring value. With all of the properties we manage, we find opportunities to operate more efficiently, creating increased profitability for all the stakeholders – owners, tenants, and our own investors.”
Allegiancy’s formula to make that happen includes significant investments in quantitative analytics and information technology to ensure “we’re not only operating smarter, but we are also working faster and making immediate impact,” Sadler said.
It also includes deploying an aggressive approach to executing leasing opportunities, which starts with researching and working with only the best and most successful brokers in the markets where their properties are located.
At Research Commons, Allegiancy is already working with the local CBRE brokers on leasing opportunities, work that commenced even before the transaction closed.
“The marketing plan is in place, materials are ready to go and prospects are setting up tours as we speak,” said Dan Simons, Allegiancy Chief Operations Officer, who has personally been on site of the property multiple times. “We’re not just saying we’re responsive. We show it. We are committed to exceeding the investor’s expectations on filling vacancies with a Class A tenant.”
Allegiancy has also recently earned commercial real estate asset management contracts in, among other locations, Ohio, Georgia and Florida.
“Our growth is based on the fact we have a history of success in executing on what we said we would do,” Sadler said. “It’s that simple. We have consistently delivered on expectations and owners appreciate that.”
