The CCRE Program
CCRE has enjoyed an excellent working relationship within the brokerage community throughout the East Bay Area. Included in any marketing program undertaken by CCRE is a strong effort to provide timely and accurate information to fellow brokers. We feel that our reputation for cooperation enables us to enlist the broad support of the entire brokerage community for any marketing project undertaken by CCRE.
CCRE is a project-oriented firm, which brings analytical skills to each task, catered to specific real estate marketing needs. Each marketing program is tailored to suit each particular property, property owner, and the demographic area of the subject properties. We seek to represent select retail shopping centers and office buildings, rather than become a clearing house for any and all types of properties. We believe by focusing on a specific type of project, we can better service our clients.
CCRE utilizes the most up-to-date resources and materials to keep informed of the current market conditions and tenant activities that can change quite frequently. Constantly keeping informed of the market area leasing activity, rent comparables, concessions, and expenses allow us to relay valuable information to the property owners so that they may be able to consummate the most competitive transaction possible. Our up to date computer software allows for expedient access of documentation and resources aiding us in keeping stride for stride with each element of the deal.
It is our belief that the successful marketing of a real estate project is determined by the expertise and commitment of the individuals assigned to the project. CCRE stresses strong personal commitment to listed properties. We believe there is no substitute for daily canvassing efforts, "cold calling" via telephone and door to door fieldwork to maximize results. Passive marketing techniques (i.e. signage, advertising, brochures, computer systems mailings, etc.) are only effective as a supplement to direct personal contact. CCRE is committed to providing a superior personal and selling effort on every project we represent.
On a weekly basis, existing business that correlates with specific targeted uses will be contacted. Using these databases and telephone books, CCRE will call retail users ranging from national and regional chains to the local independent stores in an effort to locate relocating or expanding businesses for the subject properties
CCRE's leasing agents and associates will be distributing brochures in areas adjacent to the site. (Samples are enclosed) Personal contact is a very effective leasing technique. All tenants in the local retail centers in the area will be introduced to the properties this way.
The project shall be submitted to all local and regional brokerage companies in the Bay Area. CCRE does not hesitate to share a commission. CCRE maintains continuous contact with the various brokerage firms who specialize in tenant representation, as well as all large and smaller local brokerage companies in the trade area.
We will utilize our vast resources to successfully market the properties as a top location for active chains and franchises looking to expand or relocate in the trade area of the subject properties. We are constantly surveying to obtain names of retailers who are not currently operating in the area. The leasing agent will initialize a mass mailer to all chains and franchisees looking to expand near the site or in the surrounding area. Each chain will be personally contacted by phone within ten days of the mailer.
Depending on their initial response to the site, another follow up letter will be sent out confirming their level of interest. A strategy that has been highly successful for us in this market is the Owner initiated Proposal. Given the fact that chains are being inundated with leasing mailers from other brokers and property owners, this strategy is an aggressive way of "cutting to the chase" with specific retailers we are targeting.
Leasing mailers are a multi-step program. Initially, a list of targeted uses (chains and others) is compiled by both the owner and broker. Pursuant to the list, a leasing brochure is assembled which accents the project's highlights and amenities. Attached to the brochure are the demographics for the area in radius' of usually 1, 3, and 5 mile circles of the site. Each mailer will include a cover letter introducing the property and advising the tenant they will be contacted by phone to discuss possible interests in greater detail.
In additional to the promotion received through leasing mailers, canvassing and cold calling, the property may be advertised in the local newspapers in a column created exclusively for shopping centers to lease. Also, occasional spot ads will appear to target specific uses for the project. Advertising in this manner will be at expense of the owner
INTERNET WEB SITE
CCRE subscribes to Loopnet and CoStar, the Internet’s leading commercial real estate marketplace. The property and its features and highlights along with site plans and building photographs will be posted on the web site which allows brokers and tenants to search for properties in a targeted market area.
Signage is an important and substantial source of leads. Leasing signs will be appropriately placed on the perimeter of the property as well as in the windows of the available spaces. All incoming calls are processed in a timely manner, and qualified with the inherent goal of setting an immediate appointment at the project.
CCRE’s signage at other quality locations provides an integral source of leads. Many times, a caller who has been shown a particular site in the vicinity will determine that the initial site toured does not fit their needs. By informing the prospect of additional CCRE sites in the vicinity, the prospective tenant's needs are better serviced.
