Our Philosophy

Our business philosophy is simple: We strive to treat our clients, tenants and vendors the same way that we would like to be treated. This philosophy can be demonstrated by something as simple as promptly returning telephone calls or as complex as resolving lease disputes. We take a “hands on” approach in every facet of our business operations whether it is the evaluation of a prospective acquisition or the administration of the ongoing maintenance responsibilities. We know “what is happening” with our properties and tenants!

Schaefer & Associates, LLC has established long-term relationships with our clients, tenants and vendors. We have never lost a management assignment, except as the result of a property sale, and we pride ourselves in the loyalty of our client base. We try to not give tenants reasons to move and have achieved an admirable record of lease renewal conversion. Our vendors are paid promptly and provide us with high levels of service and competitive pricing.

We are particular about our properties and clients. Our reputation is our most valuable asset.
