As a real estate attorney, I had the pleasure of closing 2 ground lease sales with Sands Investment Group in Michigan in 1 year. Each sale was for a separate Client. I found that their ability to market and procure suitable Purchasers was above my expectations. In one case, a Purchaser terminated the Purchase Agreement and they provided another Purchaser within a week. It is rare to find people who it is pleasure to deal with, are professionals who know the market, perform and are extremely helpful throughout the process. Sands Investment Group, and especially Max Freedman and Will Schuhmacher were all of the above and I would highly recommend them.
Munir was absolutely amazing to work with. Throughout the whole process, from submitting the contract all the way to closing, Munir made the process unbelievably easy and painless. I would recommend Sands Investment Group anytime. Two thumbs up!!
I have been working with Andrew Ackerman of Sands Investment Group (SIG) for over 10 years now. In that time, we have worked together on everything from a single store disposition to large portfolio dispositions and acquisitions. I trust him to work with my team and handle all of our real estate needs.
I have known Mr. Max Freedman and Mr. Chris Sands of the Sands Investment Group (SIG) personally for a number of years as reputable real estate advisors and investment sales professionals in the commercial real estate and oil & gas retail industry. Originally Mr. Freedman and Mr. Sands were introduced to me during my tenure as the Vice president of Real Estate and New Store Development for 7-Eleven Inc. Both of these gentleman are respected and maintain an impressive track record of selling new retail developments & properties for me and others in the real estate investment community.
Within your current portfolio, we can help you underwrite your current real estate holdings to show you values on the sale/leaseback market. We have years of experience in assisting operators in analyzing their business P&L's to come up with a sustainable rent factor and structure the lease in order to yield the best market pricing. Portfolio or one-off dispositions, we will always make sure we get you the best price.
On stores you lease, we can help you approach your landlords and get pricing on the sale of the real estate. We can use market conditions to potentially restructure your lease and lower your occupancy cost by purchasing and re-selling the real estate on the Sale Leaseback market. Additionally, this can become a tool to roll in remodel costs to upgrade your facilities.
Through our prospecting, we find business and real estate sellers. These are great opportunities to discover conversion projects or acquire new businesses. There is value creation in separating the real estate and converting it to net lease assets, which can in turn fund your business acquisitions.
Interested in developing new stores? Our network can match you with our build-to-suit developer partners that will assist you in site selection, budgeting, construction and finance the entire project; start to finish.
