The foundation of Vista’s business is the development and redevelopment of shopping centers. Over the past 25 years, our team has completed more than 150 development and redevelopment projects in Austin and the DFW area. Our expertise is transaction-tested and continuously refined with each new deal.
Vista delivers maximum value to the projects it serves by utilizing a results-driven approach blended with superior marketing intelligence. We work hard and we work smart. We formulate a comprehensive marketing strategy for each property, which is aggressively implemented to identify and secure the best tenants on the best terms. The Vista team continually strives to maximize each property’s potential, frequently exceeding our client’s expectations.
Vista combines its knowledge of the markets it serves with an effective understanding of our client’s objectives and an insider's perspective into the retail community to identify premier locations. Our team employs leading-edge demographic research, mapping technology and comprehensive market analysis to source and evaluate prospective sites. Vista’s extensive transaction experience makes us a valuable resource in negotiating and closing deals.
There is no substitute for executing the fundamentals of property operations. Each new assignment we undertake starts with becoming thoroughly familiar with the property and the goals of its owner. We walk our properties regularly, speak with and listen to our existing tenants, and solicit prospective tenants every day. These activities ensure that we have accurate real-time market information upon which to base our decisions and recommendations. From property takeover and operations, to reporting and advising on major decisions, Vista provides an integrated solution to its management clients.
Regardless of the point in the business cycle, our dynamic North and Central Texas markets are always producing new opportunities. Syd Hurley has been an active shopping-center investor for more than 25 years, and he has lead a range of transactions including ground-up development, redevelopment, portfolio acquisitions, quick-close distress transactions and buying stabilized properties. Vista has achieved success in all types of transactions by employing a formula of thorough due diligence and creating opportunities through our extensive relationships with brokers, owners and tenants. We work hard to anticipate new trends and opportunities created by shifts in the marketplace. We are always opportunistic, but we never forget the importance of patience in executing a successful strategy.
