As the pandemic wanes and property owners resume their normal course of business, Douglas Wilson Companies is ready to apply its decades of specialized real estate services to advisory clients seeking outside expertise.
There are abundant peer consultants who shape their services around one specific niche — accounting, due diligence or property management, to name a few — but DWC has shaped our business around a comprehensive soup-to-nuts approach based on its decades of extensive experience owning, developing and operating real estate.
For more than 30 years we’ve operated as a real estate principal, meaning we are equipped to serve our advisory clients in countless ways, from market feasibility to contract negotiation, entitlements, construction management and more — all to determine and achieve the highest and best use of our client’s owned real estate.
In many instances we serve as an owner’s representative, while in others our role is to advise on legacy assets for families and other ownership entities.
Owner’s Representation: The DWC Way
DWC’s client base spans family trusts, foundations, REITs, corporate clients expanding their campuses, and individual land owners.
“Because we’ve been a real estate principal time and again, we are unique in our understanding of how to work with local and state agencies and jurisdictions, negotiating long-term ground leases, contracts, entitlements and every step of the real estate process,” says DWC Vice President Michele Vives, who leads the firm’s advisory services.
Vives and her team utilize practical skills, development expertise and their real-life experience in handling more than $15 billion in assets across every asset class, which allows them to advise owners on maximizing their development opportunities.
“We don’t approach our work as a peer consultant would, rather, our process depends on our ground-level reality of understanding what it is like to be an owner, principal and developer,” says DWC Chairman and CEO Douglas Wilson. “We are battle-tested and ready to untangle, stabilize and solve.”
