Ow Commercial provides net leased investment brokerage services nationwide as well as investment sale, landlord representation, and tenant representation in California, with an emphasis on the Monterey Bay Area region. With over $1.3B worth of transactions completed, we have delivered superior results for our clients while maintaining the highest level of integrity, accountability, and professionalism.
To achieve a client’s investment goals we take time to clearly define an investment criteria (property type, geographic region, credit of tenant, price range, lease structure, return on investment target, overall objectives, etc.), identify properties that meet those specifications, and strive to secure one or more of those properties under the most favorable acquisition terms.
Executing property dispositions for owners of commercial properties requires understanding the Seller’s top priorities with respect to the sale, accurate asset valuation, execution of a strong marketing plan, close relationships with a vast network of top brokers and investors, and hard work. We have successfully transacted virtually every property type and in most states and market sizes.
Taking into account the nuanced and strict 1031 exchange rules is of critical importance when working on 1031 exchanges. We take pride in identifying and securing replacement properties that match our clients’ investment criteria, while helping them manage the 1031 exchange process to ensure all aspects of the transaction adhere to the 1031 exchange requirements. We sell many of our clients’ older, management-intensive properties, and trade them into newer, passive, net leased investments with strong tenants on long term leases with minimal management responsibilities and stable income streams.
Off-market properties may be better suited to some clients’ investment criteria compared to properties on the open market. We strive to offer our clients both on and off-market investment opportunities for consideration in order to give our clients a complete view of the market as well as the possibility to secure off-market properties that may be purchased under more favorable terms or conditions. We have longstanding relationships with preferred developers who provide a steady pipeline of new “off-market” deals that Ow Commercial clients have access to before they hit the open market.
We spend the time to assess and help determine our clients’ space needs, evaluate which availabilities in the market meet the requirements, and then leverage our market knowledge, experience, and relationships to secure the best space under the most favorable lease terms.
We carefully analyze each owner’s investment goals, tenant mix, financing structure, building strengths, submarket conditions, and competition, and then develop a comprehensive marketing strategy. We provide strategic expertise to commercial property owners and investors working to maximize asset awareness, stabilize occupancy through leasing and tenant retention, achieve optimal rents, and enhance property value.
I’ve worked with Ben both as owner of New Leaf, and, more recently, on some personal real estate investment opportunities. I couldn’t imagine finding a better resource for this kind of work than Ben. He was extremely helpful to my business, helping us find the optimal locations, often outside normal channels, as he is both hard-working and incredibly resourceful. And, he knows how to entice the property owner with the quality of tenant that we are. In a very competitive real estate market, we were able to secure locations over much larger entities, and I give Ben credit for helping us to achieve that. After selling New Leaf, Ben found properties that I could invest in that would provide me with a stable passive income stream, not to mention that they have been very lucrative investments, and that I would not have to spend a great deal of time managing. And Ben does not walk away after the sale is complete, always willing to assist with issues that might arise post-close. You’re not going to find a better person to work with than Ben!
We had the pleasure of working with Benjamin Ow/Ow Commercial on a time sensitive and complicated 1031 exchange requirement. Ow Commercial helped us navigate the nuances of the 1031 exchange process while meeting our investment criteria of exchanging into multiple properties in different markets that offered asset diversification, strong real estate fundamentals, quality tenants, and stable income streams. Benjamin is a true professional and we look forward to working with him on another transaction soon.
Ow Commercial is one of my favorite brokers to work with because they perform; they bring us qualified buyers, answer questions after reviewing due diligence materials and site inspections, and most importantly, never miss a deadline. I value the fact that Ow Commercial stays fully engaged in the transaction from the first letter of intent until the close of escrow. We prefer to sell our properties on an “off-market basis” and as soon as I have a marketable property, I contact Ow Commercial knowing they will bring a strong buyer and help negotiate mutually beneficial terms. We have had many happy investors and repeat buyers thanks to Ow Commercial and I look forward to our next project together, knowing it will go smoothly.
For many years we have enjoyed and benefited by working with Benjamin Ow/Ow Commercial on property sales and 1031 exchanges associated with our estate planning. Ow Commercial has guided us into more profitable and lucrative property investments over the years by exchanging our older, management intensive properties, into quality net leased investments with strong tenants that provide us with excellent monthly income.
We couldn’t be more pleased with Ben’s work, as our representative, in the recent sale of our 4 parcel Santa Cruz commercial property, to 3 separate buyers, two of whom with separate lenders, all while processing lot line adjustments with the City. Calm, cool, determined, and expertly managed, through every step of the complex process, Ben evidenced a wisdom beyond his years and got a combined price that more than met our expectations.
