Marketing & Leasing

Our marketing professionals embrace the unique service that is retail real estate marketing. We develop marketing plans that identify sales and promotional opportunities, attract target retailers, capitalize on local trends and build awareness to attract customers. This is accomplished by:

➢ Defining market position
➢ Compiling complete property detail packages
➢ Developing a brand position
➢ Producing collateral materials
➢ Constructing interactive and user-friendly websites
➢ Deploying online marketing and social media programs
➢ Building advertising campaigns
➢ Keeping our clients’ news in the spotlight through public relations initiatives
➢ Creating community goodwill through community relations
➢ Coordinating special events and promotions
➢ Assembling sponsorship opportunities

Our leasing teams work closely with big-box anchors, junior anchors, restaurants, specialty, lifestyle, entertainment and small shop retailers all across the country. As a result, we understand how a project is created, leased and operated. We also understand the delicate balance retailers play in making a center successful. Our principal leasing strengths include:

➢ Working with the project team to develop leasing plans and strategies for each asset that focuses on market conditions, strategic positioning of the asset  and economic objectives
➢ Identifying and executing a leasing strategy for each asset that maximizes an optimal tenant mix through our tenant relationships with the retail and  brokerage communities
➢ Managing deal progress including overseeing and evaluating the activities and progress of leasing agents, contractors, vendors and consultants
➢ Inspecting the assets, as is necessary, to further define and meet the leasing goals for each project
➢ Preparing weekly reporting packages and presentations for all properties in the portfolio. This drives a detailed understanding of the key market,  micro- economic political and real estate trends affecting each of the assets, including economic growth, supply/demand, demographic trends,  competitive  projects, future projects, rental market preferences (rates, terms, etc.), zoning, expense trends and agent/broker compensation.
