Retail Property Services

Specialised retail knowledge and expertise to minimise risks and maximise your returns

Retail

We work with Developers, Owners and Occupiers with a specialised focus on high street shop leasing, mixed use and convenience retail project leasing, neighbourhood shopping centre leasing and asset management. We provide strategic advisory in all aspects of the retail property lifecycle including:

  • Site selection
  • Site acquisition
  • Project Marketing
  • Retail Leasing
  • Asset Management
  • Divestment

We believe the successful delivery of retail leasing services is determined by the leasing team’s ability to work with the project team principally the asset manager to create a compelling tenancy mix for customers with a strong focus on right tenant, right location and the highest and best use for each tenancy.

Collaboratively with clients Valeo maintain a focused commitment to meet milestones and objectives and identify and address key and opportunities and risks faced presented to your asset. We are client focused to deliver a tailored leasing strategy for each property and tenancy to achieve the best possible outcomes for our clients.

Proactive Retail Leasing Agents

In short we put in the work to go the extra mile for you clients to explore every opportunity fully. Effective Retail Leasing is more than putting a sign up and placing an online ad. We pound the pavement, canvassing local businesses within your Extended Trade Area, multi-location retailers in your region and national tenants to identify the best available tenants to fill your vacancies and future developments. We leverage our active database of tenants and populate your property with its own database of local, regional and national tenants and religiously follow them up until we secure you the right tenants in the right location within your centre on the best possible set of commercial terms.

OUR APPROACH

Strategic Leasing Review

This is where the majority of our time is spent prior to commencing marketing your Centre for lease. As part of this process we will discuss with you and assess the following:

  • We review your Centres current tenancy schedule and tenancy mix to identify gaps;
  • Right Tenant Right Location analysis;
  • Competitive analysis;
  • Upcoming expiries & renewals;
  • Sales and occupancy cost analysis;
  • Backfilling of underperforming tenants with better operators to reduce potential lost income;
  • Demographic and trend analysis;
  • Target uses and target tenants;
  • Town planning;
  • Concept design/renders;
  • Income, incentive and tenancy readiness budgets.

Retail Leasing Marketing

We have expertise in marketing retail assets to retailers by putting together a compelling narrative for your centre being an ideal location for your desired tenants. We use a strong focus on demographic data and gaps analysis and provide a compelling marketing pitch for your retail asset to tenant.

Retail Centre Marketing

Our Centre Marketing team can provide you with websites, social media and traditional advertising campaigns to increase the awareness of your centre with national and local businesses and local residents in your trade area.

Tenancy Coordination

We can provide you tenancy coordination services to manage your incoming tenants

Annual Strategic Reviews

We review your leasing strategy with your Asset Manager and Centre Manager annually to ensure the strategy for upcoming renewals and expiries is addressed as part of the strategic review of the centre’s leasing opportunities and threats. We adjust the leasing marketing strategy and targeting of tenants to suit the strategic needs of the centre.

Regularly Reporting

We provide regularly fortnightly reporting on all leasing activities to the asset manager and work strategically with the Centre Manager and Asset Manager to achieve the leasing objectives for the centre.

Feasibility & Strategic Analysis

If you are considering a development, redevelopment or remixing of a Centre we can provide strategic advice around income projections, incentive budgets, landlord contributions and other costs to lease the Centre. We will lead your team through a full feasibility review to ensure time and capital aren’t wasted on projects that are simply not commercially or technically viable. Diligent application of feasibility principles will build the project’s commercial and operational backbone and act as an instrument in securing funding and commencement.
