Strategic Real Estate Planning

We guide your team to identify the gap between where you are today, and where you would like to be in the future.

Teams find it difficult to guide their organizations through strategic real estate decisions:

Reason 1
It is a one time project that warrants additional staffing.
Reason 2
It requires a specific competence.
Reason 3
It is beneficial to have a neutral third party.
Reason 4
Disposition and acquisition discussions can bring tension.

Credibility + Experience
= Clarity

Our credibility and experience create a clear direction and implementation strategy.

City of Minneapolis
The City of Minneapolis hired IAG … to create a new five-year strategic real estate plan as an update to our strategic facility planning decisions for the foreseeable future. With this goal in mind, they helped us define our anticipated real estate ownership needs and costs options over the next five years. They were able to calculate costs for each viable facility option and make a clear recommendation based on his expertise. We found IAG…to be comprehensive in their analysis and thoughtful in their recommendation. Each scenario was well supported with detailed data that allows us to work toward the necessary internal and external approvals as we move forward. IAG…was responsive and highly professional in their approach to this work on behalf of the City of Minneapolis.

Matsuura hired IAG to help evaluate our long-term space needs and how we would best accomplish that through a lease extension, new construction, or relocation.

The IAG team went above and beyond a real estate broker. No questions went unanswered. Very helpful in explaining exactly how the transaction would work, always had great insight and suggestions for us. Three words to describe them would be: knowledgeable, trustworthy and dependable.

Tree Trust
The IAG team did an excellent job finding Tree Trust a building to meet our specific needs. Their highest priority was getting us the right place and to make sure we were comfortable with the process every step of the way. They treat clients the way they would want to be treated and I would recommend IAG to anyone looking for commercial real estate.

U.A. Plumbers Union Local #15
Our organization had the large undertaking of combining two separate areas of our business operations into a new location without suspending any services. IAG took us through the complete process in a compressed time frame and delivered a facility that more than meets our current and future needs. We are extremely proud of our new facility and could not have asked for a better team to work with to achieve our goals.

Joanne Kletscher
Burr Oak Group
I had the pleasure of working with the IAG team to find an office space for our small office. Their personal attention, professionalism, communication and knowledge of the Minneapolis/St. Paul office rental market enabled our small office to find a great space. They were  relentless and extremely patient in our search to find just the right space. Even after the lease was signed, they continued to follow-up about the logistics of moving our office. I would highly recommend IAG to anyone to help them find their commercial space.

I still cannot believe how the IAG team was able to take the complexity of our company space needs, owner dynamics, and market challenges and pull out such a win! They truly are masters in this industry knowing how to patiently walk with us with expertise, negotiating skill, and most importantly, an uncanny understanding all of the people involved. I would not go through this process with anyone else.
