Whether a single investment or a portfolio, maximising value, reducing operational costs and increasing returns on behalf of our clients drive every action we take for the assets under our management.
Our specialists develop bespoke strategies to achieve your investment goals and implement innovative solutions to preserve and enhance net income and capital value.
Offering services across the entire property life cycle, our integrated approach identifies additional opportunities and strategies to maximise rental income and value while at the same time improving financial controls and enhancing letting profiles.
To fully realise the potential of an asset, the initial leasing programme needs careful design and management.
It is essential to manage the appointed leasing agents and legal advisors in order to achieve the best possible outcomes. This will optimise rental income, tenant mix and lease terms and can only be achieved by a well-organised and experienced team.
Working closely across all business functions, Asset Management will ensure that there is an open line of communication with all occupiers. Our approach helps to ensure opportunities to enhance income and lease terms are understood.
Tenant retention is important to REM, but sometimes vacancies are unavoidable and they become an opportunity to reposition assets to enhance returns and portfolio structure. REM has the in-house talent pool to ensure that these opportunities are optimised to ensure maximum financial performance of the asset.
