REAL ESTATE SERVICES
Since 1979, RSG has provided real estate and development services to an array of public agencies, private developers, and investors. Frequently, our services are engaged to help formulate P3 (public-private-partnership) projects, as communities look to leverage land use controls to maximize fiscal, housing and other economic objectives. In this arena, RSG provides clients with critical knowledge, analysis and vision required by decision-makers, answering such questions as: is this the right investment for this community, what are the key construction and operational factors that could affect success, and how do we maximize use of policy, investment and strategic resources and minimize risk. Across California alone, RSG has advised clients on over 700 commercial, residential, industrial and mixed use projects entailing investments of over $5 billion. We arm our clients with insight and intelligence so that they are empowered to make decisions and transform communities.
Our services fall into 5 basic categories:
RSG is well respected by cities across the state to conduct market assessments and project feasibility analyses, site selection and evaluation, and pre-entitlement services. Our background working with over 100 communities lends credibility to developers as well as cities.
RSG is a recognized expert in analyzing the economics of projects such as residential single-family rehabilitation and mixed income apartments, as well as commercial uses including retail stand-alone buildings, outlet centers, lifestyle centers, office towers, industrial condos, gas stations, ground leases, digital billboards, data centers and fulfillment complexes. We specialize in public-financing structures – helping communities know when it’s reasonable to provide financial assistance and when a project’s profitability meets current market yields.
RSG can assist cities and developers sort through code and legal requirements for compliance and review of development applications. For example, we have assisted both cities and developers implement affordable housing inclusionary policies, density bonuses, and reporting requirements.
As a California Commercial broker (CalBRE #01930929), RSG provides variety of sales, leasing and marketing services for public and private-sector clients. RSG is often retained to lead negotiations on deal terms, manage the acquisition and escrow process, structure lease extensions, and correspond with residential or commercial tenants. We also provide relocation advisory services, serving as a relocation agent to several communities on such public projects. We are very busy helping our clients in the sale of hundreds of properties being disposed as part of the redevelopment dissolution process in California.
Eventually, real estate reaches a point of transition and RSG is adept and preparing long range property management plans, disposition strategies, development programming studies and opinions of value and reuse strategies.
