Kendal Property Management
Bringing a practical approach to transition and property management
These are extraordinary times. We are in the midst of the greatest transfer ever of wealth from one generation to another. As the older patriarchs and matriarchs come to terms with the fact that they must sooner or later pass the reins of the family business to their children and grandchildren, families must often acknowledge the fact that the dynamics of their personal relationships do not always work in a business setting. In those times of business transition from one generation to the next, Kendal Property Management is there to provide the professional and objective perspective that is necessary to preserve and sustain the legacy that the older generation worked so hard to build. We have a non-confrontational management style, but we are still blunt and direct, if that is what is required. We won’t tell families what they want to hear, but we will tell them what they need to know. ‘Shirtsleeves to shirtsleeves’ in three generations Barely one third of all family businesses survive the transition from the first to the second generation. A mere ten percent make it beyond that point. We will do anything and everything possible to help our clients beat the odds. Transition Management – Conflict Resolution Being in the right is no guaranty of winning. Do you want to spend your life in court, or do you want to resolve issues and move on? We have strong ties to several major law and accounting firms and can bring them in as soon as they are needed with the goal to settle and move on. The professionals we work with share our philosophy; get a deal done. Property Management Life in family owned properties doesn’t stop during transition. There are still tenants and buildings that need to be cared for. Do you really want to get the 3:00 AM call that there is no hot water in the building? Do you really want to deal with building inspectors or irate tenants? Kendal Property Management maintains strong ties to highly skilled trades available at a moment’s notice. We can meet your property management needs at any level. Kendal can put together a complete team for long-term management, or simply an army of one if that is what is needed. We have a proven track record of successfully dealing with tenants, trades and government officials. For specific details on how we have helped companies like yours, please visit our Case Studies.
