We are a small dedicated team of highly respected commercial real estate professionals, committed to providing our clients with comprehensive commercial real estate advisory services. We also specialize in the acquisition, re-positioning, development and asset management of retail, commercial and multi-family investment properties.
The practice of commercial real estate advisory at Coal Harbour Realty Advisors Inc. means only taking assignments where we can add real value, applying our experience, skill and understanding in our clients’ best interests. We are not all things to all people. We turn down assignments where our clients are better served elsewhere. It is our philosophy to accept fewer assignments in order to provide a much higher level of service.
When appropriate, Coal Harbour Realty Advisors Inc. will acquire income producing properties, to achieve long term cash flow and capital appreciation by targeting assets where value can be added through a re-positioning or re-development strategy. Our primary focus has been retail properties with an emphasis on strip retail centres. We have also invested in multi-family residential and a retail development site.
Acquisitions are owned by way of Limited Partnerships formed by Coal Harbour Realty Advisors Inc., of which the principal, Marty Dohm, controls the General Partner and through a holding company, invests as a limited partner.
Coal Harbour Realty Advisors Inc. takes a proactive approach in the asset management of our portfolio of investment properties to draw and retain the best tenants available and grow the rental income. With a long term investment horizon, it is critical that as asset managers, we work closely with our tenants and continuously try to improve the tenant mix and re-position the properties as the market dictates. Ongoing investment in the properties is important in order to continue to create an enjoyable shopping experience for our tenants’ customers. As long-term investors of real estate, we have a vested interest in our properties and in developing good sustainable relationships with our tenants.
To maintain a strong relationship with our tenants, we manage the leasing of the retail and commercial properties within our portfolio. We work closely with the brokerage community and provide agents and prospects with clear communication and quick response times.
Coal Harbour Realty Advisors Inc. take a hands-on approach in the development of our retail sites and is involved in each step of the development process, from acquisition, site rezoning if required and city process, design, construction and lease up. The same attention to detail is paid when a property is re-positioned or redeveloped.
Property management services, for all of our investment properties, are provided through a long-term relationship with Boultbee Realty Ltd., an established property management company based in Vancouver that has been in the property management business since 1986.
