RealFoundations offers the industry’s most proven and effective engagement model for meeting the operational challenges of the business of real estate. What makes this possible is our rare combination of passionate people, collaborative work methods, proven models and exceptional methodology-driven execution.
Committed, passionate professionals who bring decades of accumulated judgment and perspective to bear in any engagement, going beyond mere service delivery to make real estate run better in every possible way.
RealFoundations' 400+ professionals have decades of “Big 4” and real estate experience and have accumulated expertise across the entire industry spectrum, giving us the widest and deepest institutional knowledge and problem-solving capabilities.
Our internal culture values not just amassing knowledge but sharing it as well, both internally and with our clients. And we view ourselves as “real estate people” first and foremost. We chose this industry because we have a passion for it.
Regardless of the type of project, Real Foundations always relies on collaborative work methods to accelerate problem solving and effectively drive change.
We rely on small Meetings and Work Sessions to address specific, discrete items or issues. Our Tactical Facilitated Sessions involve larger numbers of participants and typically pursue a known outcome or objective.
For more complex or ambiguous issues, where a specific objective or outcome may not be identified, RealFoundations will engage in Strategic Facilitated Sessions at the organizational or departmental level.
And when a client needs to accelerate or improve the quality of implementation decisions or planning, we hold a RealDiscovery®session where a large group of stakeholders work collaboratively in an intense, specially designed setting with structured exercises to rapidly develop an actionable solution.
When you engage RealFoundations, you get more than smart people and exceptional effort: you get the proprietary techniques, methodologies and established practices that are the result of our years of real estate experience and insight. And we develop solutions based on proven knowledge frameworks and information models including:
We understand that, when recommending business and technology solutions, it is crucial to ensure that those recommendations are aligned with and support your overall business strategy. Our proprietary Business Analysis Framework ensures that alignment at the start to yield results at the end.
Another of our industry leading proprietary frameworks, RIIM recognizes that information in the real estate ecosystem has a “life of its own" and requires careful management in order to unlock deep value to the organization. The RIIM does this by ensuring that information is accurate, timely, consistently understood, appropriately granular, and widely available.
The traditional view of real estate holds that “operations” emerge organically or gets dealt with bit-by-bit and after a strategy is defined. However, at RealFoundations, we believe that a well-defined operating model is an essential component to the overall strategic plan.
Unlike many consulting organizations, once RealFoundations’ professionals have diagnosed a need and designed an appropriate solution, we stay involved and implement our recommendations using time-tested methods, tools and templates.
Our proven Design, Build, Deploy execution model provides rapid, measurable results for each project and client. This methodology encompasses all aspects of each project, including clear, timely deliverables, project management and adoption acceleration techniques.
