Commercial real estate planning, development consulting, project management and
owner representation services for clients in New York, New Jersey and Los Angeles.
Bankhead Real Estate acts as an advocate for our clients on all aspects of real estate projects. We translate client goals and aspirations to project realities.
Often referred as the “owner’s rep” for design and construction projects, Bankhead Real Estate believes first and foremost, the job of a project manager is to advocate on behalf of the client on all aspects of the project.
Consulting encompasses a large umbrella of services custom tailored to meet your needs. BRE works with clients on a range of real estate challenges, from new developments and partnerships, to long term ground leases, scenario analysis and feasibility studies.
Real estate projects often require a surprising number of professionals, consultants, contractors and project team members. To ensure these large teams are well coordinated and working towards a common goal, BRE acts as the central point of contact for all parties on the project.
Selecting a project manager or consultant is a big decision. As a business, our objective is delivering a successful project for the client. This goes above all other considerations. We hold ourselves, and the project team to highest standards to meet and exceed client expectations.
BRE is continually inspired by our clients passions, commitment and inspiring work. This is what truly makes us tick. We love learning about your organization and one of our main goals is to make sure your real estate provides much more than just a place to work.
BRE has developed a best in class project delivery system that tracks key data points on the project. Our system gives the client constant access to up-to-date information, ensures all team members are on the same page, and that no issue small or large gets lost in the mix, thus enabling our clients to make informed decisions and keep the project on track.
“Bankhead Real Estate was hired midway through a project that was frankly going sideways quickly and Dee Jay was a savior for the project. He assessed the issues, filled in the gaps, provided solid leadership and was professional and always available. He and his team did whatever it took to get the project back on track and to completion, including picking up the slack for our GC as well as the professional team on the project, which was certainly not what we initially hired him for. I couldn't recommend BRE more and our project was ultimately a success due to his relentless perseverance.”
Working with Dee Jay Bankhead, Bankhead Real Estate enabled us to operate at a high level while our project manager handled all the details. Dee Jay was very hands-on throughout the entire project and pays great attention to detail. Dee Jay is reliable, knowledgeable, experienced, thoughtful, responsive and a pleasure to work with. We would definitely work with Bankhead Real Estate again on any future projects.
“We were mired in bureaucracy with no clear way forward until Bankhead Real Estate helped organize and segment the work. BRE was also able to assemble and lead existing team members as needed to get us across the finish line much sooner than we otherwise would have.”
We’ve worked with Dee Jay for several years on multiple projects in both New York City and Los Angeles. We can always count on him to work with the right departments and vendors to find a solution to the most complicated situations. Dee Jay is great to work with because he is just as passionate about what he does as our members are about what they do.
Every project I’ve worked on with DeeJay became much easier once he and his company joined it. With his extraordinary sense of planning and organization comes a real vigilance with regard to budgeting, so that there are no costly surprises. He produces clear reports to track progress along the way and always remains several steps ahead to prevent time delays.
“To call Dee Jay Bankhead and the team at Bankhead Real Estate our Project Manager would be a massive understatement. Dee Jay and his team led us (and a large team of consultants) through a daunting and unfamiliar design and planning process with confidence and ease, getting us to the finish line while deftly avoiding major pitfalls. He is astonishingly good at what he does.“
“I've known Bankhead Real Estate as the go-to for owners reps in NYC for 10 years. I worked with BRE at my last venture and when it was time to start my current company, I called BRE as early as possible. BRE was instrumental in getting us up and running in NYC, successfully spearheading everything from GC selection to obtaining permits. BRE, and Dee Jay, in particular, is a thoughtful partner who is always willing to go the extra mile (or ten) to keep projects on track and clients happy.“
We engaged Bankhead Real Estate to manage our theater project in New York, the Robin Williams Center. Dee Jay’s personal commitment to our project quickly became clear as he represented us on a variety of fronts. Whether it was assisting in preparing reports for our board, or on-site meetings with vendors and contractors, we came to rely on Dee Jay’s expertise and daily advocacy on all aspects of the project for the Foundation. We knew we could count on him to tackle challenges as they arise and work towards the best outcome for us and our project. Dee Jay saved us significant amounts of time and money, and he was instrumental in making sure our project was a success. We would work with him on any future projects, and highly recommend him to others.
Bankhead Real Estate helped Saint Mark's church with a financial analysis of our real estate options . Dee Jay listened very carefully to our needs, and went above and beyond to get us the relevant data. His meticulous work allowed our organization to make an informed decision about our future. His help and advice turned a stressful and complicated project into a very positive experience. We were very pleased with Dee Jay's excellent work and dedication.
