Representative Property Management Engagement
Kennedy Investments currently manages two properties in Wesley Chapel, Florida for a local group of investors. One property consists of a 16,800 sq. ft. retail center that was 58% leased when we assumed management in 2009. The second property is a 24,000 sq. ft. retail center which was 70% leased in 2009 when we assumed management.
Both properties were subsequently leased to 100% by Kennedy Investments at appropriate market rates for the new leases. We were also able to save the investors over $20,000 in year over year operating expenses by utilizing our vendor relationships and leveraging our management infrastructure.
