Friedman provides physical due diligence services to banks, lenders, special servicers, private equity firms and investors for office, retail and industrial assets. Most importantly, our service offerings are conducted through the eyes of an owner, not just a 3rd party fee provider.  Every question asked and each recommendation made is done as if it is a property we are acquiring, with the intent of creating value – either during the acquisition process or throughout the hold period. While most property inspection firms take a simplistic approach to reviewing and reporting on the physical components of a property, we stress the importance of taking a “deep dive” into the physical aspects of the due diligence process. When completing our comprehensive inspection analysis, we thoroughly evaluate the condition of the building & systems, determine realistic life spans based on existing conditions and provide accurate cost estimates associated with recommended repairs or replacements. Our goal is to uncover problems, highlight potential synergies and provide the best and most cost-effective solutions for our clients in order to maximize their returns. Our focus, attention to detail and common sense approach will ensure peace of mind for the most astute real estate investor. If you have any questions about services offered or would like a customized proposal, please contact Brian Bass, Senior Managing Director at 248.848.3528 or brian.bass@freg.com
