Not-for-profit organizations are subject to unique factors that impact real estate choices. SMARTFEL understands how to:
- Manage multi-level decision-making processes, involving boards, organization executives, staff and advisors
- Address distinctive financial issues that relate to private fundraising, bond financing, taxes and reimbursement
- Communicate use, program and service delivery issues to property owners and others involved in the real estate process
SMARTFEL does not merely represent its not-for-profit clients for individual transactions, but works with them as consultants, developing strategic plans that will meet an organization’s long-term goals. Unlike typical commercial real estate transactions, securing space for a not-for-profit organization means more than merely consummating a deal. It means creating one.
It is the ability to conclude complex transactions, utilizing creative strategies, which is the hallmark of the firm’s Not-For-Profit Advisory Services. SMARTFEL provides organizations with the full range of real estate services, including lease acquisitions and dispositions, sales and purchases, subleases, lease restructuring and project and facilities management.
