Mission Statement

GreenSlate Management strives to be the premier management company for Urban Omaha by employing quality individuals who are passionate about Real Estate and managing properties such that any of our employees would be happy to live in any of our managed properties.

GreenSlate’s Competitive Advantage

GreenSlate Management was created by identifying a need for a management company that can effectively and professionally manage scattered-site mixed-use properties in an urban environment.

Being that we only manage properties within a certain radius of generally high-density urban Omaha, our business model is able to be more horizontal than a typical management company. Whereas a 150-unit complex in the suburbs may have one manager that is in charge of leasing, marketing, financials, maintenance, budgets, and more, we compartmentalize each job function by pooling all of our managed properties into groups and hiring individuals that specialize and excel in each particular role – e.g. leasing agents only do leasing and our finance people only do finance-related tasks. It also protects our managed properties from turnover, if we lose one employee, we still have several other employees knowledgeable about each property, we don’t have to start from square one.

GreenSlate Boosts Property NOI

1. Total Management Cost – In comparing our Total Management Cost to the market, we find that we typically have a comparable or lower cost due to our inherent efficiencies. We charge a gross fee as a % of net rent, whereas others charge a net fee and then add on salaries and other charges. Both models work, but we have found our business model can be more efficient and save clients on Total Management Cost – particularly in dense urban Omaha where pooling job functions works geographically.

2. Maximizing rent and minimizing expenses – We have built a brand based on The Blackstone District. Though this name is not exclusive to GreenSlate, we have been able to capitalize on the brand very effectively, in many cases being able to raise rents significantly simply by increasing the demand on a property. We do this through our vigorous marketing, which generates significant lead volume, which we can then use to fill not only properties right on Farnam, but over a 1 mile radius out. We also have various methods of decreasing expenses, such as pooling marketing and in-housing and pooling maintenance staff, which have been very effective in reducing property operating expenses on properties we have taken over
