Like the experienced broker who performs a number of tasks and services to help facilitate a residential or commercial real estate transaction, the professionals who comprise Unified’s Real Estate Services department are there to serve the needs of retailers who require assistance in the development of new or existing retail stores.
In the area of new store development, Unified’s real estate experts can provide assistance with market selection, site selection, site acquisition, lease negotiation and lease management. Also, Unified’s real estate professionals will often help facilitate transactions between members of the cooperative who wish to sell their stores and members who wish to buy stores.
Whether developing a new store from the ground up, purchasing an existing store or simply remodeling a current store, construction management, store design, equipment and fixtures play a critical role in the ultimate success of any retail project. To meet these needs, Unified procures store equipment for retailers at low prices by leveraging its purchasing power and provides vendor referrals for store design and project management services.
