Commercial real estate firm Sage Partners is broadening the scope of their services with the formation of a new company, Sage Assets Solutions.

Tommy Van Zandt, one of the founders of Sage Partners who serves as director of operations for the new company, said Sage Assets Solutions was formed to meet a growing need in the Northwest Arkansas market.

“We offer a much broader scope of services that is now required in the maturing Northwest Arkansas property management market,” Van Zandt said. “We’ve also assembled a team that I believe brings a level of experience and expertise that is currently not available in this market.”

Joining Van Zandt in the business are Sage Partners Marshall Saviers, T.J. Lefler, Alex Blass, Brian Shaw, who will serve as principal broker, and Scott Audrain, who is the managing partner.

Audrain, who returned to Northwest Arkansas after spending several years in Houston and Memphis, said the company’s mission is to reduce clients’ costs through better management practices.

“Clients will realize savings through lower insurance, capital sourcing, maintenance, and custodial costs,” Audrain said. “We’re confident clients will see significant cost reductions in these areas.”

Audrain said Sage Assets Solutions acts as a strategic asset manager working with clients to evaluate a property’s needs, establish financial objectives, develop comprehensive service agreements, and manage the delivery of services during the life of a contract.
