Real Strategy helps our clients make better decisions about real estate. Merging aspects of management consulting, interior design, and real estate brokerage, Real Strategy Advisors believe that the decision to acquire space should be a lever to a business and not a driver. Internal to our firm we have the ability to assess the financial, functional, and cultural well being of your organization, make informed recommendations on the potential for change, and lead you through the entire process of transformation. Though required by law to carry a real estate license, we are more than simply realtors.
Our services are typically delivered in three phases:
Phase I – Corporate Assessment: We conduct a thorough investigation of your existing situation in partnership with your facilities and senior management teams. We discuss and explore the current state of your organization’s culture through a combination of surveys and direct interviews. Finally we examine your financial statements, assess your physical spaces and review your real estate contracts.
Phase II – Create Real Strategy: Based on the results of Phase I and the discussions with you and your team, we recommend a strategy to deliver the desired results such as increased profitability, or improved workplace satisfaction. At this point we deliver a baseline summary report for discussion purposes inclusive of major milestones and a preliminary capital budget.
Phase III – Implementation: Based on your organization’s unique needs and situation, we assemble a team of subject matter experts and lead them to delivery of superior results while remaining completely involved and engaged until the very end.
