\ MANAGEMENT SERVICES \ CAPABILITIES

Unico offers comprehensive management services for our clients. We approach each property individually to manage your property to its fullest potential. This starts with a strategic business plan that serves as clear and detailed roadmaps to reach each property’s objectives.

"Unico provides the type of management expertise combined with a sophisticated financial acumen that we look for in a partner. They have an owner's perspective as opposed to that of a broker which gives us comfort that they are acting in our best interest. We value their input in making critical decisions knowing that they will carry out those strategies that maximize value for the asset.”

Unico offers fully-integrated, comprehensive real estate services, including:

Property Management
In the real estate investment and operating world, property management is often viewed as an unwelcome cost — an area that doesn’t contribute to the success of the investment strategy. We disagree.

Unico has seen firsthand the value that property management can consistently add and, as such, has developed a unique set of skills and experiences that make property management an asset revenue generator and value-add.

That’s why we manage all our properties with an owner’s perspective.  Our asset and property management teams work together to develop a strategic business plan for each property — a plan that meets the objectives of its owners, identifies and mitigates risk, and uncovers opportunities for cost savings and revenue generation, while always keeping an eye toward the final sale.

Simply put, Unico brings the same philosophy, focus, commitment to customer service, and talent to the management of third-party properties as it does to its own portfolio.

Leasing
Leasing must be strategic, focused not only on the immediate prospect and market conditions, but on what lies ahead. That’s why we’re aggressive in making deals happen when opportunity arises yet are patient in evaluating the market and determining future strategies to best serve our clients.

We understand, from being owners ourselves, what it is that our clients expect, be it maximizing rates and cash flow, or minimizing capital expenditures. Not only do we know what is required but we have the experience and expertise to develop a successful market strategy and the broker relationships necessary to execute.

Accounting
It’s easy to overlook behind-the-scenes work such as accounting. But this is the backbone of successful real estate operating and investing. Unico’s Accounting department supports a range of clients and their reporting and policy needs. Specifically, the team expertly manages the multiple components of property and corporate accounting including:

  • Cash flow and projections
  • Revenue reporting
  • GAAP financial statements
  • Budgeting
  • Job cost management
  • Capital expenditures reporting
  • Treasury management
  • Lender reporting and construction loan draws
  • Tax return facilitation
  • Lease administration
Marketing, Branding, and Public Relations
There’s more to real estate than bricks and mortar. That’s why we build marketing campaigns to achieve  top-of-market tenant attraction.

The process begins with evaluating the property, the market, the competition, and the business objectives. Because all Unico teams work collaboratively, clients can be assured that throughout every aspect of the real estate process their brands will be successfully protected, leveraged, and capitalized on. Services include:

  • Marketing plans focused on return on investment.
  • Rebranding and ground-up brand strategies.
  • Market research, insights, and recommendations.
  • Websites and social media campaigns.
  • Email marketing, advertising campaigns, and event planning.
