The next step is to use our services related to offsite items in our corporate office.

Off Site visit by yourself or your representative:

It is important to clarify our position that we are a consulting firm and not a management or a leasing company. We have on staff, a full time accountant, comptroller, maintenance representative, marketing representative, multi States property managers.

Off Site training takes place in our offices in Torrance California. This includes setting up online banking and all training related to communication between us, your office, the new onsite manager and existing and prospective tenants.

It is important that you learn and understand all the aspects of managing and leasing your own property. There are no courses out there for you to learn and our training is mainly from our experiences not some text books.

We believe that the six month period shall be ample time for you to learn to run your center / mall. Once you do complete the training, you can create additional cash flow and by increasing your net operating income you can then sell the property with a much higher cap rate and a larger profit.

It will take two people to properly set up and manage your own center. THE SUPPORT PERSON is mainly in the background and will work with accounting, collection, accounts payable and receivable in addition to updating the property web site. THE FRONT PERSON will be dealing with all aspects of communications between the onsite management, existing and prospective tenants in addition to the vendors on maintenance issues.

Keep in mind that we will make recommendations, but the final decision to implement such recommendation is up to you.

The Long Distance Management Corp requires you to take up to four trips a year and a three days stay in the city where your property is located.

We charge between five percent (5%) to eight percent (8%) with a zero set up fee and zero leasing commission.
