Losses at commercial real estate properties are an inevitability. Preparation for when disaster strikes is key according to Judi Sponsel, RPA, BOMI-HP, vice president of property operations with America's Capital Partners. On March 14, 2008, Judi was managing The Equitable Building--now 100 Peachtree--in Atlanta when the unthinkable happened. In this video Judi shares her property management nightmare when an EF2 tornado struck her building. Through a combination of preparedness, action, and the BOMA community, Judi and her team were able to quickly respond to the disaster and begin the process of rebuilding after this significant property loss.

Thank you to our video sponsor, SOLID Surface Care.

Sponsored by Full Circle Restoration. A building’s roof protects the rest of the commercial real estate asset. Make sure it is protected. Consider these five things that can degrade your roof. DIY REPAIRS - Improper repairs can cause more damage to the roof, lead to additional repairs, and shorten roof life. NEGLECT - Not giving a roof the same inspection attention as other systems in a property means that more can go wrong without anyone noticing. FOOT TRAFFIC - High foot traffic can wear down the materials on the roof and create more wear and tear on the roof system. WEATHER – While uncontrollable, understanding the effects the weather in the area can have on your roof is important for preventative maintenance strategies. DEBRIS - When left to collect or not properly removed in a timely manner, Debris causes roofs to deteriorate faster. As you consider your property’s roof, keep these areas in mind.

Communicating with a security team is an imperative part of the property management process. During the night, the security team can be the first to spot potential issues and alert you. During the day, they manage the ingress and egress of the property. Creating the right relationship and working with them well can improve the operation of a building and the security team.
When moving into a new market, doing research the neighborhood and area around it can be one thing that sets your team apart.
