In 2012, our Office Management and Leasing Team was hired on by a receiver (court-appointed landlord) who had just been appointed by one of our bank clients, as they were in the process of taking back an 18,000 SF multi-tenant strip center in St. Cloud, Florida.
The property was 66% vacant and was in disrepair from a lack of management on behalf of the prior owner.
Stewardship matters! The fact that we have been on this specific assignment for over eight years, through three different ownership changes shows that our team has been able to walk in the shoes of our clients and work toward their Ownership goals as if they were our own. While the bank’s goal was to triage and dispose of the asset, our latest and current client has a legacy/long-term hold play.
Our ability to assess and respond to our clients’ needs, especially when they differ so greatly, enables us to serve them in a way that creates and sustains long-term relationships with our clients and their tenants over the years.
