Asset Development, Lease-up and REPOSITIONING 

Setting the tone for success                                                                                                                                      

The team at Edison47 has a strong and varied background; a large portion of that background comes from asset development, lease-up and repositioning. The decision to build or purchase an asset is one that we take very seriously. Market conditions, prospective resident demographic information, amenity design are just a handful of factors that impact a projects success. Having a background that spans decades, not just years affords the team at Edison47 the unique perspective gleaned from navigating the market during tumultuous times as well as prosperous.  

 

BUSINESS OPERATIONS AND INTELLIGENCE 

Be the Authority                                                                                                                                                         

Building any team is tough. Bringing a group of individuals together, united by the same drive is a challenge, one that edison47 prides itself in. Starting with the premise that perspective is everything, edison47 attracts top talent from outside the multi-family industry leading to a powerful advantage. True authorities in their respective fields, engaged in daily operations and dedicated to a customer first philosophy, clients rest easy knowing these professionals settle for nothing but the best from themselves and each other. 

Knowing the market inside and out is critical. Having the right tools is a given. That’s why edison47 has partnered with industry-leading tech companies such as Yardi, On-Site and LRO to leverage unmatched expertise in front-end marketing and back-end quantifiable data allowing for an analysis of the resident and guest experience that is unmatched. Software evaluations, conversion implementations and system integration are also key in establishing a tailored management experience.

MARKETING

Build a Connection-Staying Engaged                                                                                                                           

We are living in the age of customer connectivity. Do you Tweet? Post? Pin? Or Blog? What’s the deal with Instagram? A picture is still worth a thousand words but a Tweet or strategically posted Instagram image can be worth tens of thousands. In a world that doesn’t rest, the social media sphere is critical for building a relationship with guests long before they decide to schedule a tour. Blowing up balloons and taking out a boilerplate ad in the Yellow Pages won’t cut it. Web portals, SEO, adword marketing and social media like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram can be tricky to keep up with but necessary for long term success. Coupling marketing savvy with business intelligence resources, edison47 can help ensure guests are connecting with your brand and staying engaged.

FACILITIES OPERATIONS 

Work Smarter. Not Harder.                                                                                                                                      

Maintaining any asset takes money. It also takes business savvy to do so effectively. By providing strategic direction from the onset, edison47 constantly works to mitigate future financial risk to the property owner by taking corrective action to protect the asset from day one. This means lowering costs where ever possible. Budgets, organizational planning and thorough training mean the property receives on-going attention. Cost effective measures are continuous and do not only happen during a scheduled “budget season”. Waiting until disaster strikes is not an option. The facilities management team works year-round to ensure the success of the physical asset. 

Business intelligence tools provide the analytics to detect common issues, review the quality and performance of both products and staff allowing the management team to take corrective action in a timely manner without negatively impacting the bottom line. The team at edison47 represents a dynamic cross-section of industry professionals and talented outsiders. The ability to approach each challenge and opportunity from our unique perspectives provides edison47 a flexibility and agility unseen in other property management firms. As property owners ourselves we view every assignment as if it were owned by edison47.
