Cushman & Wakefield's Property and Asset Management group helps institutional and individual owners maximize returns on real estate investments through value-added management expertise. We understand the bottom line of the real estate business. We take an “asset management” approach, directly supporting ownership’s financial and operational goals.
We offer a variety of services in areas such as building operations, tenant relations, and financial management. We also offer planning in the areas of energy/sustainability, EH&S (environmental health and safety), security, emergency planning, and project management.
C&W works with investors and owner-occupiers who wish to maximise the financial potential of their property assets. You may want to:
Develop solutions across the entire asset lifecycle
You want to maximise the value of your asset from acquisition through management operations and eventual sale or re-finance. This requires a Property/Asset Management provider that can integrate purchase, due diligence, management, leasing, and construction, or sale. You want a provider that can enhance the investment’s value by increasing revenue, minimizing expenses, and maximising perceived asset value.
Focus on green initiatives
You may want to achieve LEED status or another form of recognition for your sustainability efforts.
How We Can Help
Flexible, value-driven asset lifecycle approach
C&W is a best-in-class, full-service provider to investors across the lifecycle of the ownership. We provide a full range of integrated services customized to each client’s specific needs in a flexible delivery plan, including the synergy of leasing and management services as well as acquisition or sales.
As managers, we work to grow asset value by ensuring stable tenancy (substantially reducing lost rent, commissions, and tenant improvement expenditures) through a high-touch tenant retention program.
We maintain mechanical systems, inspect/maintain common areas, and ensure that measures meet standards.
We scrutinise all expense categories, including taxes, utilities, vendor contacts, staffing, and capital projects. We help you to determine a course of action, including using our national discount program to keep these expense categories under control.
We provide commercially focused sustainability advice that informs the real estate strategy. Our advice reduces cost, maximises value and supports delivery of your sustainability agenda. We work with occupiers, investors and developers across all real estate sectors. We help them to identify the initiatives and solutions that offer the best sustainability value at maximum financial return. We clarify the benefits of a sustainability perspective in real estate decisions, align efforts with a client’s corporate sustainability goals, and help choose options that optimize marketability and asset and portfolio value.
