Sperry Van Ness/Lord Partners Leverages Innovative National Commercial Real Estate Platform in St Louis and Southern Illinois

St Louis, MO, November 04, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Sperry Van Ness/Lord Partners continues family St. Louis legacy while leveraging innovative national commercial real estate platform in St. Louis and Southern Illinois.

Lord Partners, a St Louis commercial real estate firm is the newest affiliate of Sperry Van Ness International, forming, locally owned, SVN Lord Partners. Services now include full service brokerage, investment, property management, and auction.

Managing Director, Kurt Lord, is joined by his cousin, Cheri Simon at SVN Lord Partners. They are continuing a St. Louis family legacy from when their grandfathers co-founded a real estate company in 1927, on Newstead Ave. Family members have worked together in real estate for 87 years.

Licensed in Missouri and Illinois, SVN Lord Partners provides three unique attributes to the St. Louis market: Collaboration Between Brokers Results in Higher Sales Prices for Clients SVN Lord Partners provides the industry’s only “national collaboration” model to St Louis investors, owners and tenants, which results in higher sale prices for properties.

“Although there is national consolidation among large firms that is affecting St. Louis, the commercial real estate market remains fragmented and often dysfunctional,” Kurt Lord said, “The real estate broker for the seller controls the flow of information to potential buyers. This can cause a property to sell for less than market value.

“Our goal is to get the highest price for our client. This is why we practice compensated cooperation where we proactively share fees 100 percent with outside brokers. Our distribution channel for commercial real estate assets is the entire brokerage community. That’s the key to driving up the value of a property.”

Sperry Van Ness purposely reaches out to all brokers and agents. All real estate professionals are invited to the SVN weekly national sales calls, including competitors.

Cheri Simon, vice-president of SVN Lord Partners, explained the SVN approach, “When properties get maximum exposure, the market place becomes more competitive,” Simon continues, “This delivers more offers, causing sell prices to increase and benefiting the client.

"It’s a simple model, but not the way the industry has historically behaved." 2 New Marketing Approaches and Focus on Client Communication SVN Lord Partners advisors and clients benefit from the SVN cloud-based enterprise marketing system. From investment analysis, to the automatic creation of property-specific websites, the platform enables clients to make informed decisions and optimizes administrative efficiency. SVN Lord Partners address the desire of clients to get immediate updates and feedback on the status of their real estate projects. The deployment of the SVN ClientLook communications system is new to the Metro St. Louis marketplace. Broker Training and Specialization: Good for the Broker and Client The SVN Lord Partners program is unique for its broker training. SVN Lord Partners deploys a specific, continuous, professional skills program including an intense business development retreat. As a result, brokers know how to achieve specialization skills to service their clients.

Lord said, “Clients appreciate the in-depth knowledge that our brokers can demonstrate as a result of this training.”

SVN Lord Partners is aggressively seeking real estate professionals that want to create their own high performance specialty sales team. Lord commented, “This is the SVN proven route for individuals who want to build a strong practice that is sustainable even when the market is not performing at its best.”
