Dave's Landmark Group Update

I wanted to take this opportunity to update you on some of the exciting things happening at Landmark. It’s been three years since we moved into our new office. Our plan was to use an open floor plan to foster communication and collaboration among employees. This move has exceeded our expectations. It has improved our operational efficiencies and allowed us to avoid the proverbial “dropping the ball”. We have continued to expand the services we offered based on what brings the most value to you, our customer. Most recently:

Real Estate Assessment Appeals  Real estate taxes are often times our largest single expense of which we have little control. This week we were at our hearings for the Tax Equalization and Review Commission for 2010 and 2011 real estate valuations. We had amazing results. We saved our clients over $50,000 in real estate taxes this week. Because we have learned so much from these hearings, we expect 2012 to be our best year of appealing real estate valuations ever. We brought on Alex Karimi to head up this effort. Alex is a real estate investor himself and has a personality that makes him a “Natural Born Killer” at appealing real estate valuations. If you are interested in us appealing your assessments, please give Alex a call at the office. He will step you through the process for appealing 2012 valuations,

Omaha Towing and Recovery   Last December we started a towing subsidiary named Omaha Towing and Recovery. We did this because of the constant complaints from current tenants about unauthorized parking in our lots. In four months, we have all but eliminated the parking problems. In fact, a tow truck showing up in a parking lot brings more tenants out of their apartments than a police cruiser! So we have added property patrols to one of our many property investor services. If you would like to have us patrol your lot/properties on a regular basis, whether we manage the property or not, please give me a call.

Since property values have dropped dramatically in the last three years combined with low interest rates and high occupancy levels, now is best time in the last 20 years to buy residential investment grade real estate.Call or email me and we can get together on this unique time we live in.

As always we appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future. Please feel free to contact us at any time.
