We use this word a lot. It’s the one word that best describes what makes us different. Market expertise, research, planning, communication – all the work we do before the transaction, pays off in a stronger negotiating position. You’ll be surprised how strong your negotiating leverage can be – and how few surprises you’ll encounter – when a well-qualified project team is in your corner and following a well-defined plan.
Increased risk comes from not anticipating events that can increase costs or slip the schedule. If you haven’t anticipated the unknown, budgeted for it, and created alternatives, you’ve created business risk. By being meticulous in our planning up front, we reduce risk later on in the transaction.
“That which you manifest is before you.” – Enzo, The Art of Racing in the Rain
Align your real estate strategy with your business strategy. It’s not as simple as it sounds. It’s all about building consensus with the key players in your organization, from your executives to your board, from operations to your finance team. It means including market data in the business planning process. It also means keeping the team of project managers, architects, and contractors focused on your interests. Our process keeps everyone pushing in the same direction and maintains flexibility in case your business strategy changes or evolves.
Preparation creates certainty. The preparation we do, the team we build, the alignment we create internally, and the leverage we create externally – it all creates certainty. Leverage is a result of mature, well-designed options (including feasible alternatives) that improve your negotiating position.
At Forte Commercial Real Estate, we rely on one simple rule to guide us through even the most complex transactions: your priorities are our priorities.
