Our Business

Asset & Property Management

Ytech has established operational excellence as a core value through the acquisition, development and management of residential and commercial properties. Since its inception, Ytech has managed more than 12 million square feet in the southeastern United States.

Our local property management operations stand out in the local 25 real estate markets where we have a presence. We consistently outperform the competition, as reflected by higher rents, higher tenant satisfaction ratings and outstanding retention rates.

Ytech’s value oriented approach to real estate drives its management strategy for every acquisition. As owners, the firm’s principals are heavily involved in the crafting of specific management strategies and business approaches appropriate to each property. Our full range of management services for our properties and assets include marketing and leasing, engineering, operations, finance, accounting and administration. Our numerous local property managers have the experience and knowledge to effectively help the firm reach short- and long-term investment goals.

Ytech’s high performing portfolio has held more than $1.4 billion of prime real estate. The knowledge gained through this undertaking enables us to evaluate and structure real estate projects to meet our firm’s specific business goals. Ytech has the ability to make strategic business decisions, from evaluating each property’s capital expenditure program to leasing risks and potential investment returns, all at a fast and effective pace.

Ytech has successfully negotiated leases for 7,000 apartments and hundreds of commercial properties in 25 submarkets across the Southeast. In addition to the ability to sustain leasing momentum, we create marketing and advertising materials and plan promotional events to showcase our assets. As part of our integrated real estate services, Ytech’s management professionals are closely involved with all aspects of the leasing process, from structuring and negotiating to tenant move-ins.

Ytech conducts portfolio-wide tenant surveys that allow us to benchmark where we stand against other property owners. The annually reported data helps us to continuously improve our tenants’ experience and, accordingly, maintain a gross level of lease retention above 90 percent.

The engineering and operations team at Ytech makes sure that the value of our assets is preserved. The team coordinates individualized building standards and provides a direct line of support for property managers. Its oversight role includes an annual review of the property’s structure, mechanical equipment, utilities and contracted services. In addition, the team provides property managers with the tools for personnel development and preventive maintenance.

We are committed to delivering superior long-term value to our communities, investments and employees. Only by maintaining healthy and vibrant structures can we invest for the long run and thrive. As Ytech developed and redeveloped our portfolio of properties, we also set up a sophisticated preventive maintenance program to protect our assets.

Ytech is committed to responsible energy practices. We aim for energy efficiency through the latest technology in building automation systems and by participating in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system to evaluate our sustainability.

At Ytech, operating costs and quality standards go hand in hand. We strive for the balance when negotiating cost-saving measures with vendors and service providers that will ensure long-term investment value and satisfied tenants.

Ytech’s team of integrated real estate experts oversees each project’s design and development to assure quality, efficiency and sustainability throughout its life cycle. We work with our construction teams to monitor testing of the structure and the building’s systems to confirm it is ready for occupancy. Once our team and contract administrator confirm the work is complete, the inspection and handover process begins.

Ytech’s portfolio of successful redevelopment projects is diverse, from multi-family residential to Class A office space in the urban core. We are adept at recognizing the intrinsic value in underperforming assets and redeveloping them to achieve their full potential.

Each one of our projects relies on teamwork and strong relationships. Ytech’s overall success in real estate development and redevelopment reflects the capabilities of our construction management team members and the quality they seek.

From the outset, Ytech’s construction management team works closely with project designers and our finance department to supervise costs and adherence to budgets. They coordinate building permits, review plans, oversee operating procedures, explore building system alternatives, and manage the construction process.

On-site, the construction manager provides detailed attention to construction quality, while ensuring job site safety and appropriate environmental practices. Their experience allows them to make knowledgeable decisions on modifications and changes that could otherwise delay work or degrade the project’s quality and value.

Beyond the initial investment, it is imperative to be able to plan for capital expenditures to achieve projected cash flows, effective asset positioning and efficient future operations. Ytech undertakes regular reviews of our investments by our construction personnel to be able to pinpoint areas where additional capital expenditures may be needed in future years. In addition, our asset management team identifies opportunities for increased net operating income through strategic capital investment projects.

Ytech’s in-depth understanding of the local market gives us the ability to accurately gauge the success of our projects and how we can differentiate our assets from competing properties through a series of benchmarks. When considering a potential acquisition, our research looks at these factors to better position the investment locally and nationally.
