During and following the syndication of an asset, Allegiancy makes proactive, intelligent decisions based on our technology-driven financial models to increase our investors' capital investment by allocating funds in the most effective and revenue-generating ways. Allegiancy maintains clear visibility into our properties through regular property visits as well as daily communication and direct involvement with the asset managers.
Allegiancy promotes regular contact with its investors through monthly reports and memorandums to keep our investors well-informed on their investment. We, at Allegiancy, take our investors' feedback very seriously and work on behalf of investors to ensure the highest level of service and unparalleled results.
Our DNA traces back to the solid, rural values ingrained in the lives of our founders, brothers Chris and Steve Sadler. The Sadlers grew up on a south Louisiana farm that valued hard work, responsibilities and troubleshooting. If you got dad’s tractor stuck in a ditch, you better figure out how to get it unstuck before he got home. If you don’t take care of the chickens, they’ll die. That matters. On a farm you learned to innovate in a very rural way to make sure a job got finished. It might take baling wire and duct tape but the important thing was to improvise to finish the task until you could get the right part. It takes creativity, ingenuity and a sense of urgency. Those essential values are at the heart of our commercial real estate investors and what we do here at Allegiancy, innovating in the use of technology, counting on our experience and leveraging our Value Assurance process to ensure industry-leading profits and solid returns for our clients and investors.
Our aggressive, proactive and systems-based approach to investing in commercial real estate means our clients and investors can be assured that we are managing their assets with a single-minded desire to grow them. Our cost-conscious, frugal approach stems from core values that prize hard work, initiative and good stewardship. The result means we are leaders in the industry in a forward-leaning culture and in the performance of our assets. And in our eyes, it’s not even close for second-best.
Our simple mission in providing commercial real estate asset management is to preserve the value our clients’ and investors’ assets and grow the value of their assets. We believe that it is their blood and sweat that has gone into creating the excess cash that they invested in a commercial real estate asset. We want to make sure those assets are well taken care of by being ahead of the curve. That means communicating well and taking initiative. It means making valid, reasoned recommendations and decisions based on our experience, the insights gleaned from leveraging our tech-enabled platform. It’s all underpinned by a commitment to good stewardship: We treat our clients’ investments as if they were our own.
