Allegiancy announces new educational initiatives for other small businesses, commercial real estate community

Asset manager to share best practices, lessons learned.

RICHMOND, Va. – Allegiancy, a Richmond-based commercial real estate asset manager, has a long track record of helping commercial properties become more profitable. The company’s leadership philosophy is simple: Run each property like a small business.

Based on that record, CEO Steve Sadler announced the company’s new video series – “Conversations with the Chairman” – aimed at helping other small businesses succeed, and a new email series – “From the Rooftop” – focused on sharing useful information with the commercial real estate community and investors.

“Our business approach has paid off: This year, we were pleased to report that since 2006, the commercial properties managed by Allegiancy have outperformed their peers by 45 percent,” Sadler said. “Last year alone, Allegiancy grew by 62 percent, largely due to referrals from satisfied clients, and we believe, our business philosophies.”

New video series: “Conversations with the Chairman”

Allegiancy’s “Conversations with the Chairman” video series are quick, interesting lessons learned from the front lines of business.

In the first five videos, Sadler sits down with viewers and shares his top advice, applicable to any start-up or established business enterprise. Suggestions include “Recognize that details matter,” “Use the phone to your advantage,” and “Always ask why.”

The raw and largely uncut conversations contain real-world examples. In the “Details Matter” episode, Sadler explains: “In commercial real estate, that means there are low-cost, high-impact steps that owners can take to make their property more attractive right away. This ultimately drives revenue and asset value.”

“These aren’t just tips we’ve read in books,” Sadler said. “This is real world advice based on years of experience, our own lessons learned, and philosophies developed, which have helped us succeed.”

“Our goal is to help other business become more profitable — from Main Street to Wall Street,” Sadler said.

Accessing “Conversations with the Chairman”

Allegiancy will share “Conversations with the Chairman” videos on its website and through social media.

New email series: “From the Rooftop”

Allegiancy’s new email series, “From the Rooftop,” contains a roundup of useful news about commercial real estate and investing, including crowdfunding and the SEC’s new Regulation A+.

“We are reading, gathering and studying news from a multitude of reputable sources each week. We want to share this knowledge with investors, property owners and fellow business leaders to help them succeed,” Sadler said.

The new Reg A (Reg A+) and other developments from the U.S. Jumpstart our Business Startups (JOBS) Act are among the topics routinely covered because Allegiancy leaders believe in the potential of Reg A, and the resulting crowdfunding it enables.

“The new Reg A is huge for small businesses and investors alike,” Sadler said. “The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced the new rules for Reg A in March. The more that we can draw attention to this important private equity fundraising development, the better off business owners and investors will be.”

The new Reg A increased the amount of capital a private company can raise through a public securities offering from $5 million to $50 million in a year. Allegiancy is the ideal leader to share the news because it is poised to do a new Reg A offering of at least $30 million this year.

“Our niche is to maximize value for investors. Sharing useful information with them is one more way we can do that,” said Sadler.

Accessing “From the Rooftop”

A new edition of “From the Rooftop” will be posted on Allegiancy’s website, and emails will be sent to subscribers every week. Subscribe and read the series here. Links to the series will also be shared on Allegiancy’s Google+, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages.
