Nonprofit Practice

Through community-driven mission-sensitive strategies, we seek to maximize market opportunities while minimizing operational disruptions and addressing nonprofit’s requirements for buying, selling, or leasing real estate.

Because the needs of nonprofits are unique, we developed a specialized team of real estate practitioners who understand the unique decision processes undertaken by these organizations. We recognize how nonprofits work, how they think and how real estate decisions must be executed to support the organization’s mission.

Benefits to your Organization

  1. We hold the Experience, Insight, Intelligence and Resources to help nonprofit organizations make informed real estate decisions.
  2. We have substantial Knowledge working with nonprofits of all types including associations, unions and public charities.
  3. We are the only the only real estate service provider with a dedicated team of national professionals specializing in the nonprofit sector.
  4. Nonprofits, whether cause-based, membership-focused or trade-industry specific, are distinctive organizations which evaluate real estate based on mission-sensitive strategies and specialized criteria. There are difficulties in understanding associations and professional societies. The way information needs to be prepared, processed, and presented to Boards of Directors is unique–and we have more experience with these organizations than any other commercial real estate firm.
