Our approach is methodical, deliberate, and thorough: We start by listening to our clients. We take the time to fully understand their business, their balance sheet, and their short and long term strategic plan, from both management and finance.
Once we have a complete understanding of our client and our client’s needs, we will present a strategy. We will then survey and search the commercial real estate market. We will present all the options for our client’s review. To simplify the process, we will make a short list of recommended options that may be best suited for our client’s needs.
In terms of our obvious differentiators and unique qualities: The Genau Group is comprised of a team of locally born executives. We are the only commercial real estate company in Washington DC wherein every member of the executive team was born in Washington DC proper and has been here since birth. Additionally, we have backgrounds not just in real estate, but also in accounting and finance. We have been public independent business consultants and auditors. We have been public accountants, and we have been business managers. Our backgrounds are in Business Administration and we hold advanced degrees to this end. Every member of our team has an advanced business degree from a top university and a minimum of five years experience in business management.
When you research the other companies, make sure you fully critique the management team’s background and make sure the individuals who are assigned to you are properly qualified. Make sure you know what they studied in college and what they did to warrant their claim of business acumen.
The Genau Group avoids conflicts of interest. We work only with a preferred book of long term clients who share the same core value system and moral framework. We will never work for a Landlord, a Property Manager, or a Building Owner interested in leasing space to our clients.
