RealFoundations Celebrates 'First Fifteen Years'

June 2015 | Dallas, Texas - Celebrating 15 years of Making Real Estate Companies Run Better, Dallas-based RealFoundations wishes to express our gratitude to our more than 250 clients and 300 employees for helping reach this significant milestone. Beginning in 2000 with 18 employees and one client, Dallas-based Granite Properties, RealFoundations now operates out of four continents, delivering global solutions across three practice areas: Management Consulting, Managed Services, and Energy Solutions. Recognizing the growing demand for a real estate-specific consulting firm, founders Chris Shaida, Mark Callin, and David Stanford created RealFoundations following Cap Gemini’s  acquisition of Ernst & Young’s consulting business. Founded on the premise that industry knowledge and capabilities are the key to creating strong solutions and an enduring market position, RealFoundations continues to focus exclusively on the real estate and building industries. Current and former clients include 15 of the top 25 largest global property managers, the majority of the top 25 largest global office, retail, industrial, and multi-family owners, some of the largest homebuilders in the U.S. and a number of Fortune 500 companies.

Through industry-leading proprietary frameworks, such as RealDiscovery® to accelerate or improve the quality of implementation decisions or planning, or the Real Estate Investor Information Model (RIIM®) to ensure that information is accurate, timely, consistently understood, appropriately granular, and widely available, RealFoundations provides solutions for operating challenges.

RealFoundations will continue to shape the services and solutions that will keep improving how the real estate industry does business, and again thanks those who have helped the firm become the preeminent provider of Management Consulting, Managed Services and Energy Solutions to the real estate industry.
