Asset Management

We provide expertise in strategic asset management, acquisitions, development and disposals to maximize asset performance to the benefit of our clients

 Asset management is essential to properties of Institutional Investors, however skilled management with consistent service is hard to find. With our knowledge, experience, and personal approach we deliver a service with an eye on maximizing the full potential of a property at all times.The philosophy behind our management role is to maintain the property at its highest and best use. 

Asset management is about three things: maximising value, reducing costs and increasing returns from property. This philosophy is at the heart of our approach to every asset under our management, be it a single investment or a broad and diverse portfolio across a range of sectors and borders.
.

With careful tenant selection, followed by regular inspections of tenant performance and maintenance requirements, we lay the foundations for maintaining the highest value, and we keep it at its best use throughout the ongoing management by attention to detail. Regular reporting on financial, management and strategic issues keeps our clients informed of how the property is performing under management

A Specialist Role we provide in Development Management is our Outsourced Accounting & Project Control. We provide Day-to-day accounting and financial administration can distract you from what matters most – growing your project. Brickstone helps you reduce projects pre-operating costs, streamline processes, and improve overall project implementation and performance.

Asset Business Plan

The Asset Business Plan serves as a valuable roadmap guiding clients to make the best decisions leading up to a disposition. The Asset Business Plan as a comprehensive tool to be used for comparing multiple strategies to recover value, it is supported by discount cash flow analysis, econometric forecasting, risk/rationales assessment, property profiles and market sale/lease comparables.

Assisting clients in thinking strategically about their underperforming assets, this plan allows them to choose the specific strategy that maximizes recovery while minimizing risk exposure for complex assets requiring more than a standard Broker Opinion of Value (BOV).

Acquisition & Investments Solutions

  • Development and constant updating of investment strategy
  • Extensive deal network and reputation for quick execution
  • Asset management through a structured approach to driving performance
  • Loan restructuring advice and solutions
  • Structured finance, straightforward or innovative solutions
  • Comprehensive financial reporting and forecasting packages
The Managed Sale

We assist Corporations and Institutional Investors in getting the optimal results for the sale of their properties. When you appoint our Asset Management Team to manage your property Sale, we bring to the process an informed strategy specific to your property, careful monitoring of costs and performance, and skillful negotiation.

We begin the process by interviewing the best appropriate estate agents and help you make the selection. We advise the most suitable method of sale for your property–whether it be private, auction, tender, or expression of interest–and then devise an effective marketing strategy. Throughout the process of selling your property, we continue to manage the advertising quality and costs, and monitor its effectiveness. We negotiate a fair sale commission and monitor the agent’s performance. And importantly, we advise you on how to deal with offers as they come. The Managed Sale is your pathway to a trouble-free, successful sale of your Corporations and Institutional Properties
