VIVO Investment Partners (VIP) works with investors to achieve their short and long-term real estate investment objectives.  VIP qualifies opportunities with which investors may have an interest, and oversees all aspects of acquisition, improvement, marketing and leasing, management and ultimately disposition.  While VIVO Development Partners typically participates alongside investors in projects, VIP will provide advisory services to clients which have larger capital allocation strategies.  While VIP manages properties in-house, it prefers to employ third-party property managers who have specific submarket knowledge and are best-in-class within their respective asset type.  This strategy bypasses the learning curve involved in gaining a mastery of the nuances of the submarket, which in turn, allows VIVO to focus more time on the development and implementation of targeted marketing/leasing, revenue enhancement, and tenant retention plans.
