SERVICE DISCIPLINES

Management and Operations

As Certified Property Managers, Rianne Bell and Lynn Moore review current operations including financial performance, operating costs, tenant mix and the physical property. The team, with the client, establishes near term and long term goals for each asset. Adding value to real estate is one of the firm's strengths.

Leasing

Rianne Bell, Lynn Moore and Jane Shepherd have received awards for their success in leasing transactions by the Charlotte Commercial Board of Realtors. The team at Bell Moore will analyze tenant mix pursuing those segments not represented. By broadcasting spaces available through our various affiliations we keep the product in front of the brokerage community. Bell Moore understands the value of small shop leasing and the impact to the net operating income. The firm is experienced in outparcel transactions which add to the overall synergy of the properties. The team represents national tenants such as Panera Bread, Great Clips, Lavida Massage and Tuesday Morning for their real estate site selections. Tenant representation allows the leasing team to keep abreast of new projects and leasing strategies in the market resulting in more transactions closed for represented properties. The company’s strong relationship with numerous retailers and tenant representatives keeps our leasing team at the forefront of market trends and leasing opportunities. Working with the general brokerage community through direct marketing combined with strategic canvassing results in solid occupancy rates.

Financial/Accounting

Bell Moore Group provides monthly reports to the client through MRI Software. Internal accounting controls will protect the integrity of the data. Separation of data entry and processing of payables and receivables ensures protection. The company can assist the client in developing additional reporting tools including historical graphing, charts and maps.

Due Diligence Support

Extensive experience in due diligence reports and analysis. Our operational expertise provides additional analytical support to the deal process. We can help answer the simple questions:

Can the rent be collected?
Can the operating costs be in line?
Can the cash flow be delivered?
