A Roadmap for Optimizing Your Real Estate Portfolio 

Webinar Date:
      August 25, 2016 at at 2:00 pm ET

The National Association of State Facilities Administrators (NASFA) wants to thank our 2016 National Conference Platinum Sponsor – Cushman & Wakefield with Leland Consulting Group.  As part of their sponsorship package, they have the opportunity to provide a webinar.  Feel free to share and invite others in your state and organization to participate.

Cushman & Wakefield and Leland Consulting Group have created a five-step roadmap to help states derive significantly greater value from their owned and leased property portfolios. By identifying surplus properties, improving space utilization, and lessening property expenditures overall, this approach alleviates the day-to-day workload of your real estate services team so there is more capacity for creating and implementing strategic initiatives for the agency. This strategic approach has enabled agencies to achieve benefits such as leased and owned real estate cost savings, operational efficiencies, space utilization improvements, alternative workplace strategies, employee recruitment and retention, energy efficiency and sustainability improvements, community enhancement, and other benefits. This webinar will present the framework of the strategic real estate roadmap and will discuss in-depth how to initiate the process.

The roadmap begins by guiding your enterprise through a comprehensive self-assessment, bringing to light the greatest opportunities for improvement and identifying the tools your team will need to succeed. Step two involves engaging internal and external stakeholders to ensure transparency, and to cultivate the champions needed to implement the recommended strategies in later steps. After defining goals and engaging stakeholders, we work with you to develop an execution strategy specifically designed around your agency’s culture and goals, leading into implementation and ongoing efforts for continued improvement and success over the long-term. Based on the feedback received during this webinar, future webinars will cover the additional steps in the roadmap. For more information about their program visit
