“We help property owners make informed decisions by strategically positioning their property in the market to achieve the best results,” said Daryl Peeples, president and partner at KCP.

The first step in our process is evaluating your property and understanding your unique goals. After a tour of the property, agents will perform a thorough market analysis, make recommendations for any improvements or repairs, discuss competitive lease rates, current occupancy rates, and identify all possible tenants. This knowledge builds the foundation of our next step: an effective marketing plan.

Marketing your property through Kelley Commercial Partners includes high-quality photography, prominent signage, a property brochure, and exposure on our website and the nation’s leading commercial real estate search engines including Costar and Crexi. For retail property owners, we have a direct connection to a large network of retail partners across the country through our exclusive membership in ChainLinks Retail Advisors.

Throughout the marketing process, agents keep you informed with open lines of communication and they are available at any time to address questions or concerns.

With a marketing plan in place, the real work for you and your property begins. Agents begin prospecting the most viable leads, conduct showings, screen prospects, negotiate rates, draft lease agreements, and perform all due diligence involved in the leasing process.

Even for the experienced landlord, leasing a property can be a time-consuming process and finding the ideal tenant can be a challenge. With our agents on your side, you can rest assured that we are committed to our fiduciary responsibility to you and we will work to serve your best interests.
