5 for Friday with Jimena Sayavedra of Sperry Van Ness Chicago Commercial

This week, our 5 for Friday features Jimena Sayavedra, an Associate Advisor with Sperry Van Ness Chicago Commercial based out of Chicago, Illinois.

Jimena Sayavedra | Associate Advisor |SVN Chicago Commercial
Jimena Sayavedra | Associate Advisor |SVN Chicago Commercial

1. What is your geographic market and product specialty?
My geographic focus is Metropolitan Chicago industrial corridors and my product specialty is Industrial sales and leasing.

2. What’s your latest best practice tip that you can share?
I believe that targeted well-planned networking is a very powerful tool to grow connections not only for career advancement but especially to grow our real estate practice. Either face-to-face networking or via social media, It creates opportunities to initiate conversations to connect with people and discuss problems and solutions with sellers, buyers, landlords, and tenants.

Another foundation of any real estate practice is cold calling, which goes hand-and-hand with networking, since both require excellent communication skills, industry knowledge and confidence. Tackling these two tasks I think are fundamental steps to develop and maintain a strong database of clients, which is the groundwork for my practice as a commercial real estate advisor.

3. What’s been the biggest change over on how you run your business in the past decade?
Since I am newer to the brokerage business, I would say definitely social media is a game changer in all that we do. It makes us more efficient because it allows us initiating or following up on connections and relationships  with more people.  For us in the commercial real estate business, it is a great advantage to connect digitally with members within companies, groups, associations where we can start conversations and find leads. I think it is a great complement to the permanent cold calling that is part of our daily practice.

I am now focusing on prospecting and will follow with developing my “presence.”

4. What business book do you like to recommend to your colleagues?
“Lean In” by Sheryl Sandberg. I think Sandberg with this book has opened up so many issues related to women and  work and how women tend to hold back when we actually have everything to succeed in the business world and bring more women to leadership positions. I think a lot of what she says in her book is very applicable to women in the male dominated real estate sector, where we women bring skills that add great value to this profession.

5. What’s a fun fact that not everyone knows about you?
I am a marathon runner, I have completed 18 marathons, including 2 Boston, 10 Chicago, 1 New York among others. I just finished Boston.

5 For Friday with Gail Bowden of Sperry Van Ness Commercial Advisory Group

Gail Bowden | Senior Investment Advisor | Sperry Van Ness Commercial Advisory Group
Gail Bowden | Senior Investment Advisor | Sperry Van Ness Commercial Advisory Group

This week, our 5 for Friday features Gail Bowden, an Advisor with Sperry Van Ness Commercial Advisory Group based out of Sarasota, Florida.

1. What is your geographic market and product specialty?
My major geographic market is Florida, with Manatee, Sarasota, and Charlotte Counties being my sub-markets. I have also co-listed with other SVN Advisors on various projects outside of Florida. My specialty is in coordinating and completing complex commercial transactions with multiple players and many moving parts, such as when dealing with a 1031 exchange. I find this type of transaction interesting and challenging at the same time. It is always very rewarding to bring a complicated deal together for my clients. I have a significant amount of experience in dealing with venture capital, project finance, construction, and development.

2. What’s your latest best practice tip that you can share?
My best practice tip for Advisors is to utilize innovative thinking and collaboration. From a client relations perspective, I would recommend finding ways to nourish your relationships through embracing all the tools technology has given us, such as social media as a means for establishing greater relationships with existing clients as well a strong web presence for attracting new clients. If you are not very tech savvy, outsource it. You have to be where your clients are, and the importance of making yourself visible on the web will only increase with time.

3. What’s been the biggest change over on how you run your business in the past decade?
I would have to say technology has had the biggest influence on how I run my business as well as being a great contributor to my success. In fact, technology is changing the way everyone does business and has become a driving factor behind the shifting landscape of the commercial real estate industry as a whole. Technology has caused a major paradigm shift in regard to just about every aspect of our lives.

4. What business book do you like to recommend to your colleagues?
“Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway”, by Susan Jeffers

5. What’s a fun fact that not everyone knows about you?
Not everyone knows that I am a grandmother of two amazing grandchildren in Utah. They are an absolute joy and I frequently travel to see them just about every two months. It may also come as a surprise to most that I recently completed a 120-mile ride from Orlando to Sarasota on a Tandem bike with one of my SVNCAG coworkers, Bruce Dilges. I like challenging myself and trying new things. I always say that I will try just about anything at least once.

2Q Self Storage Market Update by Nick Malagisi, SIOR

Self storage fared better than every other commercial real estate sector during this past recession. However, the sector was not recession-proof, rather it was recession-resistant. After two years of losses (nine consecutive quarters), the four publicly traded REITS turned the corner and now have reported eight consecutive positive quarters. Occupancies are up; concessions are down; and rental rates are finally climbing back to pre-recession levels. REITS, in general, have outperformed the S & P and Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) for all of 2011 and 2012.

The self storage industry has finally begun to consolidate as the number of new construction starts diminished each of the last five years from their peak in 2006. The industry doubled in size from one billion to two billion square feet from 1995 to 2006. The top twenty operators in the USA control less than 20% of the total market. That will change as the REITS, flush with investment cash, acquire and increase their market share in select markets. Similarly, other new sources of institutional monies have been watching the sector and have concluded that self storage returns are as dependable, or even more secure, than the other traditional commercial real estate asset classes. These new funds/buyers are very competitive with the REITS and have forced Cap Rates down to the 5.5-6.5% range for stabilized, class “A”-good quality facilities located in the top 10 markets. Cap rates in secondary and tertiary markets remain in the 7-10% range depending on the age of the facility, location of the property and its demographics.

In terms of financing, self storage continues to enjoy the lowest default rate of any other sector in the CMBS market.  While banks and life insurance companies are more conservative in their underwriting than they were pre-recession, interest rates for refinancing are in the 4.50% to 5.75% range, with an expected 30-35% equity contribution.

Banks and Special Servicers are beginning to foreclose on borrowers that can’t make their mortgage payments or  meet new debt/equity requirements. We should see more lender sales of under-performing assets and notes later on in 2013. Or, the lenders may decide to package their bad loans and sell them via auctions to get them off their books and leave the buyers of the notes to proceed to foreclosure and/or re-sell the notes to the original borrower or the open market. At the end of 2009, the Sperry Van Ness National Self Storage Team participated in a bulk sale when Key Bank was selling a construction loan portfolio with a face value of $32M.

As we look ahead to the remaining half of 2013, we should see industry performance continue to improve; increased consolidation from the larger operators; and financing from the CMBS market become an option for smaller deals; all factors which will narrow the spread between the amount buyers are willing to pay and the amount sellers are willing to accept.

5 for Friday with Mary Ridberg of Sperry Van Ness, LLC

This week, our 5 for Friday features Mary Ridberg, an Advisor with Sperry Van Ness, LLC based out of Phoenix, AZ.

1. What is your geographic market and product specialty?
My product specialty is Retail Leasing, Tenant Representation, and Investment Sales in the Phoenix market with a special focus on my own backyard in the East Valley including Gilbert, Chandler, Ahwatukee, Tempe, and Mesa.

2. What’s your latest best practice tip that you can share?
The power of team work. My partner Rommie Mojahed and I have found that team work extends our business plan beyond where we could reach as individuals. We have found that the male/female team has allowed us to serve the needs of many of our clients’ communication styles. We collaborate, continuously cross check, divide and conquer when necessary, and gain strength from each other’s prospective. We serve as Directors of Leasing for Sperry Van Ness, LLC in Phoenix. We use team work within our office and meet to collaborate twice each month as a group. We find these group meetings a great strategy for producing results internally.

3. What’s been the biggest change over on how you run your business in the past decade?
The past decade has presented the greatest dichotomy to our industry. There was a time of what seemed to be limitless potential followed very closely by a time of great challenge. Survival and compassion for those around us gave way to navigating strategies with colleagues, clients, institutions, and asset managers. Collaboration with individuals we may never have had the chance to serve in such a powerful way took place and as we look back we cherish the place we are today in the journey and the contribution we were able to offer.

4. What business book do you like to recommend to your colleagues?
Strengthsfinder 2.0 by Tom Rath. I find this extremely helpful especially when working in teams to identify individual strengths and how to complement one another. I also recommend The Fred Factor by Mark Sanborn.

5. What’s a fun fact that not everyone knows about you?
I traveled for a few years at the beginning of college performing with a group that toured with Doc Severinsen, Sergio Mendez, and Carlos Santana. I was in two T.V. commercials in New York and modeled in Chicago. I lived in Wisconsin at the time and all travel for our performances was by bus. After two years on the road I welcomed the chance to go to college and live in a dorm.

Kevin Maggiacomo's State of the Company Address

The following are the closing words of my State of the Company address at our National Conference in San Antonio on March 13, 2014. I wanted to write them down so that even those who didn’t join us this year could reflect on them. The video of the full speech was circulated to the all Sperry Van Ness® Advisors and Staff on April 7, 2014.

Kevin Maggiacomo, President & CEO
Kevin Maggiacomo, President & CEO

“I want to close out by reminding you of something very special and unique that exists here; something that separates SVN Advisors and the brand from any other firm in the industry, and that’s the SVN culture.  It’s special, almost tangible. It’s real. And as long as we use the Core Covenants to guide everything we do with and for SVN, our unique culture will remain intact.

There are people who don’t fit our culture. Those will always exist. There are advisors who break the rules, and that will happen from time to time.  But from the way in which we collaborate to market properties, to the way in which we clearly place our clients’ interests first, the unique SVN culture is real, is present…and I don’t want to sound like an evangelist but I can feel it in this room.

A company’s culture is one of the only true sustainable advantages SVN or any company has, if you think about it.

Given enough time and money, our competitors can duplicate almost everything we do (they can but they can’t).  They can attempt to hire away some of our best people. They can try to reverse engineer our processes. But the only thing they can’t duplicate is the way in which we live our culture.

The culture to change the industry–we are a company of professionals. Professionals willing to share information and fees, because that’s how we achieve maximum value for our clients.

The SVN brand–synonymous with all of that, and being driven by our firm owners – local ownership – with ties and vested interests in our communities.

Our culture is unique, our culture is brave and I’d like you to give yourselves a round of applause to celebrate each other and company of which you are a part.”

Top CREW #CRE Professionals Meet up at the Sperry Van Ness® National Conference

CREW_GROUP
Diane Danielson, COO with fellow Sperry Van Ness CREW members

A little over one week ago, I was attending SVN’s National Conference which was held at the Grand Hyatt Hotel on San Antonio’s picturesque River Walk in Texas. Hundreds of SVN Advisors, staff and commercial real estate professionals from over 180 markets across the country came together for two jammed-packed days to learn how to “Win.EveryDay.” (our 2014 conference theme) in their business!

The hotel was abuzz, conference rooms packed, and breakout sessions were in full discussion with numerous deal-making and networking opportunities. We learned about everything you need to know from the top 60 must-have mobile apps, online auctions, how to be properly fitted for a business suit, to how to increase efficiencies to achieve growth and run a more productive business model.

One of many conference highlights was our own SVN parody video of the movie Moneyball, which hit a home run with our all our staff and Advisors. We outlined how we are taking a sophisticated Sabermetric approach and applying the concept of baseball metrics to the CRE business to build a competitive team to “Win. Every Day.” We even had Glenn Morshower, an actor who appeared in the film, reinforce the “Win. Every Day” message in his motivational talk. I am also proud to say we held one of the highest-achieving, Trailblazer Awards Ceremonies in Sperry Van Ness® history that celebrated SVN Advisor victories in 2013!

NC-CrewAmong the crowd of CRE professionals that gathered together, about ten CREW Network members seized the opportunity to talk about CREW, its value and mission. We also spent time together to discuss this year’s 2014 CREW Convention which will be held in Miami this October where SVN will host a booth. SVN/CREW Miami here we come!

SVN is looking for more CREW members. Are you interested? Do you know any fellow SVN Advisors who would be interested? Please contact me!

5 for Friday with David Wilk SVN/Miller Commercial Real Estate

David Wilk, CRE, MAI, with Sperry Van Ness/Miller Commercial Real Estate
David Wilk, CRE, MAI, with SVN/Miller Commercial Real Estate

This week, our 5 for Friday features David Wilk, CRE, MAI, Corporate Real Estate Council Co-Chair and an Advisor with SVN/Miller Commercial Real Estate based out of Wilmington, DE.

1. What is your geographic market and product specialty?
Corporate real estate earnings measurement and optimization, strategic marketing plans for excess or under-productive properties, place-making economic development strategies, and corporate/university real estate’s connectivity to social value creation on a national basis.

2. What’s your latest best practice tip that you can share?
Be a great listener first and always make your conversations with others about the value that you can bring to them whether they are a client, friend, fellow human being, or loved one.

3. What’s been the biggest change over on how you run your business in the past decade?
In today’s market, clients don’t like to pay for consulting or advisory services when most other real estate companies give that service away for future transactions.  If you can’t clearly articulate why you add value to someone’s life, business, or real estate, either re-invent your business plan or don’t expect to win much business.

4. What business book do you like to recommend to your colleagues?
Blue Ocean Strategy by W. Chan Kim or The Rise of the Creative Class by Richard Florida

5. What’s a fun fact that not everyone knows about you?
I developed a “Best of Delaware” restaurant and nightclub called “The Polo Club” in Greenville, Delaware. It was a hot spot from 1988 to 1993 until we sold it to a competitor in 1993.  The Polo Club hosted performances from national recording stars America, Dave Mason, Mamas and Papas (when Papa John was still alive), Drifters, Coasters, Marvellettes, John Sebastian, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Mitch Ryder, and Badfinger. The most interesting takeaway from this business was the marketing and branding benefits to my real estate business that came out of this experience, and the priceless relationships and social intelligence that was gained from those who I met and got to know there.

5 for Friday with Zach Schwarzmiller with Coast/SVN

Zach Schwarzmiller with Coast/Sperry Van Ness
Zach Schwarzmiller with Coast/Sperry Van Ness

This week, our 5 for Friday features Zach Schwarzmiller, an Advisor with Coast/Sperry Van Ness based out of Everett, WA.

1. What is your geographic market and product specialty?
My geographic market is Washington State. While a strong concentration of our deal flow centers within Snohomish, King, Pierce and Spokane Counties, we are often conducting deals in all four corners of the state. I primarily specialize in assisting clients with the acquisition and disposition of multifamily apartment buildings and/or multifamily land deals.

2. What’s your latest best practice tip that you can share?
At the moment, my best practice tip has been to return to good “old fashion” mailing campaigns with handwritten letters and envelopes. I’ve discovered that handwritten letters have greater success than the standard mailing procedure. Following this practice, clients have opened, read and followed up with me in greater numbers than in prior campaigns.

3. What’s been the biggest change over on how you run your business in the past decade?
I have not been involved in this business for a decade, however, I’ve teamed up with a Senior Advisor, Blake Stedman, who has been involved within this field over the past decade. Our different skills in this business complement each other very well. I add a lot of new tricks and tools in regards to technology, advertising and overall online presence.

4. What business book do you like to recommend to your colleagues?
I enjoy “Gung Ho! Turn On the People in Any Organization” by Ken Blanchard. The principals taught within the book are equally as important to your personal life in addition to your professional business life.

5. What’s a fun fact that not everyone knows about you?
I am a certified pilot and enjoy performing acrobatic stunts. In the past decade, I’ve circumnavigated the globe on both ship and planes. I’ve traveled through 26 countries exploring all continents with the exclusion of Antarctica. During my time traveling around the world, I’ve “couch-surfed” on 52 different people’s sofas. Lastly, I have a pet bunny named Harley, a black lab named Zula, and my fiancée Molly whom I will marry in July 2014.

5 for Friday with Ken Rhinehart from SVN/Rich Investment Real Estate Partners

KenRhinehart
Ken Rhinehart, Senior Advisors with SVN/Rich Investment Real Estate Partners

This week, our 5 for Friday features Ken Rhinehart, Senior Advisor with SVN/Rich Investment Real Estate Partners based out of Los Angeles, CA.

1. What is your geographic market and product specialty?
It is what I call the Foothill Retail Corridor. I specialize in retail properties and the geographic region is a collection of about twelve cities and towns along the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains in Los Angeles County. This is where I have lived, worked, and gone to school. I know the area very well.

2. What’s your latest best practice tip that you can share?
I am excited about having recently joined an SVN Vital Factors Team. In fact, I’m the facilitator. I love it! It really prompts me to focus on the important things I have to do, write them down, and then be accountable to the rest of my team.

3. What’s been the biggest change over on how you run your business in the past decade?
I haven’t been a broker for the past decade, so I can’t say how my business has changed in that regard. However, I started in commercial real estate in 1992 as a commercial appraiser. I’ve seen quite a bit, including investors scooping up properties from the RTC for cheap. Unfortunately, I think a lot of today’s investors that I talk with have long-term memories, and think they are going to pick up properties at RTC prices, but that just isn’t happening.

4. What business book do you like to recommend to your colleagues?
I am currently working through a book called “Fire Your Excuses” by Dr. Bill Dyment. Just like the title indicates, it asks a lot of penetrating questions and presents practical solutions for eight areas of life, including career. It starts with a free assessment on the website (click here).

5. What’s a fun fact that not everyone knows about you?
I am married to a wonderful wife and we have a two year old named Max. I love to BBQ. I also love history, Route 66, philosophy and theology. If time and money were no object, I would be studying philosophy and theology at Biola University.

Wesley Cox Honored with 2013 National Commercial Award

Wesley Cox, CCIM, Senior Advisor, SVN/Miller Commercial Real Estate
Wesley Cox, CCIM, Senior Advisor, SVN/Miller Commercial Real Estate

Wesley Cox, CCIM, Senior Advisor with SVN/Miller Commercial Real Estate in Salisbury, MD was awarded the National Association of REALTORS 2013 National Commercial Award. The award recognizes excellence in the commercial real estate industry by honoring accomplished realtors for their local achievements. Cox is one of only 59 national award recipients, and the only recipient from Maryland. When asked about the award Wesley said, “It is a great honor to have been selected for this national award and to be a representative of the commercial real estate industry. As community stakeholders we should all have goals that help preserve and improve our enviable quality of life we have on the Shore and to help our community move forward in a positive direction.”

A factor in Wesley being an honored recipient was receiving the Rotarian of the Year Award from the Wicomico Rotary Club. The purpose of that award is to recognize someone that carries out the Rotary’s Four Way Test on a daily basis and someone that has demonstrated exemplary humanitarian service with an emphasis on volunteer efforts. Mission of Mercy, The Christian Shelter, Salvation Army, and the Village of Hope are a handful of the organizations that have benefited from Wesley’s work. As the Managing Broker of SVN/Miller Commercial Real Estate, Brent Miller, CCIM, CPM commented, “I am extremely proud of Wesley’s accomplishments which go to show his and our commitment to the community and the commercial real estate industry.”

As a 12-year veteran of commercial real estate, Cox specializes in the sale and lease of commercial investment property, industrial, retail, self-storage, office, and land located on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and Southern Delaware.

Office Spotlight: Coast/Sperry Van Ness in Seattle & Everett, WA

This week, we turn the spotlight on Coast/Sperry Van Ness with offices in Everett and Seattle, Washington.

1. What has been your strategy for growing your firm and also your market share?
We’re structured a little differently that most SVN firms as we have a sizable property management sister company and a private equity investment arm associated with us. A full 30%  to 40% of our twelve Advisors’ leads come from house referrals due to these and other linkages. That level of consistent referrals allows us to offer them what is effectively a base salary, so it’s a big advantage in our advisor recruiting efforts. We love the culture of cooperation, tools, and network with SVN, but driving business to our Advisors and then supporting them as they work on their business plans is how we recruit effectively. Growing this business, after all, is about building on “same store sales” (helping our advisors keep increasing their gross commission incomes) as well as growing by head count (recruiting).

2. What are some of the unique activities you do to motivate your team? 
None. If I have to motivate them, they’re in the wrong shop. We only bring in people who can write a strong business plan, stick to it, be accountable, and are hungry. If they have an off year, we work with them but if they string a few together, we are intentional about helping them find another career. Like a football team, we have a “next man in” mentality and if a player is off his/her game and not making plays, we bring in someone who can.  Fortunately, nearly all of the people we’ve recruited have stayed.

 3. What’s been the biggest challenge in how you run your business over the last few years?
Time. I’d like more time to meet more prospective Advisors, recruit them, and work more closely with my Advisors. We’d like to get to 18 Advisors and hold there. I’m four away from that target today.

4. How many Advisors/Staff did you have when you joined SVN? How many (in total) do you have now? 
We started with eight in 2007  when we joined SVN. I terminated anyone who couldn’t produce a business plan six months later that showed they wanted to earn at least $150K gross commissions the next year. That policy brought us down to three very good ones and since then I have been steadily growing it to our current size of twelve. I couldn’t be prouder of the quality of Advisors we have in our firm– each one of them.

Our market is Northern Alabama, with a focus on the Huntsville area. As the broker of record for our company, I seldom work on projects alone. I partner with Advisors as a primary training tool. My product specialty is retail leasing and land, but our brokerage has specialists in multifamily, property management and STNL properties. Of course, with the STNL properties, they could be located anywhere in the US, but again, particularly the South.

2. What’s your latest best practice tip that you can share?
I would recommend specializing in a specific property type. Sometimes we think we can do it all, but in this business, you cannot. If you are not an expert in your field you will not be taken seriously, and people expect SVN Advisors to be experts.

3. What’s been the biggest change over on how you run your business in the past decade?
I would have to say the smart phone. It has decentralized the office. We can perform just about any task on the fly.

4. What business book do you like to recommend to your colleagues?
What Every Real Estate Investor Needs To Know About Cash Flow” by Frank Gallinelli

5. What’s a fun fact that not everyone knows about you?
I’ve moved from Harley’s to Porsche’s in the past few years and I will be tracking my Porsche for the first time this spring.

This week, our 5 for Friday features Ashley Bloom, Land Product Council Chair and Senior Advisor with Sperry Van Ness Florida Commercial Real Estate Advisors based out of Sarasota, FL.

1. What is your geographic market and product specialty?
My geographic region is on Florida’s Gulf Coast with land as a specialty. Our team is currently working through several significant land transactions with national developers & homebuilders that entail re-zoning or site plan development.

2. What’s your latest best practice tip that you can share?
Keeping building your database and stay in constant communication with it. In 2013, we had a strong response to our e-blast campaign that resulted in not only new members to our database but closings with new buyers. As part of my effort in helping to launch SVN’s Land Product Council, we are working on a cooperative marketing program to highlight the SVN brand’s presence in land.

3. What’s been the biggest change over on how you run your business in the past decade?
The biggest change in how I run my business from a decade ago can be described as “leaner and meaner.” Obviously, the advances in technology in the past decade have allowed all of us to become more efficient. Besides technology, I continue to be conscious of controlling overhead as well as time management. My team has been focusing on high quality listings that are properly priced.   

4. What business book do you like to recommend to your colleagues?
“Man’s Search for Meaning” by Dr. Viktor E. Frankl. It’s a book written by a Holocaust Survivor (he had the choice to escape but chose to stay with his family) and was completed in just 9 days shortly after he was liberated from a concentration camp. According the Library of Congress, this book has been named one of the 10 Most Influential Books in the United States. A favorite quote from the book is “Don’t aim at success. The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue…”

5. What’s a fun fact that not everyone knows about you?
I recently volunteered to “crew” a local theater production of Peter Pan where I was responsible for “flying” kids.
