Location Intelligence

We provide concise decision-making tools with interactive Real Estate Mapping Interfaces (REMI) to showcase a variety of key intricacies at the market, region, or national level. When entering a new market or evaluating potential expansion, we take a customized research approach utilizing state-of-the-art technologies combined with our team’s extensive industry knowledge. We offer a variety of reporting deliverables including existing store analysis, performance trends, and trade area suitability studies.

Corporate Real Estate Solutions

We serve as an extension of your corporate team with the full capabilities of an outsourced real estate department integrating as a cohesive part of your brand. We offer full-service corporate real estate solutions bridging the gaps for a growing brand’s needs through streamlined and effective implementation of data synchronization and consolidation with dedicated account managers serving as brand ambassadors to your team.

Franchise Guidance

Consistent communication and guidance in the ebb and flow of a real estate transaction is critical to reach a smooth lease or contract execution. Our purpose is to make the entire real estate process seamless for both the franchisor and franchisee through market tours, onboarding and training, and weekly update calls. We provide a clear roadmap throughout the process and a smooth transition to the construction phase.

Tenant Representation

We commit to identifying every possibility to secure the most ideal positioning for your brand. We do not rely on advertised listings - we use our industry network and established landlord relationships nationwide to find opportunities before they hit the market and to conduct in-depth searches into the local retail centers. With our singular focus on retail tenant representation (we do not represent landlords), we provide a competitive edge in your expansion by operating as a cohesive part of your real estate team to maximize cost savings.
