Client Service & Business Structure

Our business structure is built on client service teams each having responsibility for all aspects of client service delivery. Each client group leader oversees the business for a particular client group, working closely with their team of directors and property managers. These groups are supported by the human resources, IT and accounting departments offering a full service solution to third party real estate management. Whether it's operations, leasing, financial reporting or accounting, this comprehensive approach ensures efficiency, accountability, and attention to detail.
