“Lutz Real Estate Investments has a reputation for excellence by committing to the highest standards in all aspects of business operations.
Our company is a full-service, boutique operation that was born out of 50 years of private property ownership and the management of its portfolio.
The ultimate measure of Lutz Real Estate Investments’ success is its ability to create a synergistic framework where properties are positioned to out-perform the market during any economic cycle.
Providing the best experience for all interested parties through top-notch customer service enables our team to achieve the greatest results.
We recognize that our company excels because of our people. Every member of our team is critical to our success and valued accordingly.
Our firm consists of experienced professionals in all areas of real estate including management, development, construction, marketing, and accounting. These disciplines represent a comprehensive management team.
Lutz puts great emphasis on effective communication, an essential tool in achieving productivity and maintaining strong working relationships at all levels of our organization.
Lutz recognizes that each asset requires its own management strategy based on the property type, tenant mix and exit strategy. As a result, the plan focuses on improving efficiency, reducing costs, streamlining operations and increasing tenant retention in conjunction with a coordinated leasing/marketing program to properly address current market conditions and the property’s available space.
Our boutique-style allows for immediate, hands-on administration and guidance from our extremely skilled, experienced, and knowledgeable executive leadership team.
Our operations expertise, in conjunction with hiring highly-skilled local management, leasing and maintenance staff, allows us to provide tenants / residents with a single point of contact and to ensure prompt service. Our on-site staff understands the dynamics of real estate ownership, acting as the owner advocate and dedicating their focus to their respective properties.
Lutz has been very successful with a wide-range of build-to-suit, speculative, adaptive reuse and mixed-use projects, and specializes in the area of asset redevelopment and enhancements.
Our methodology behind asset enhancement includes items such as upgrades to property and the unit interiors, cosmetic improvements to the exteriors, and the ability to address all deferred maintenance issues to ensure the long-term ability for increased pricing capabilities and an expedited return on investment.
Our executive team is intimately involved with every aspect of the development and asset enhancement process, and utilizes its diverse construction, renovation and design expertise to provide support and solutions.
