What Is Kingsley Associates Doing Here?
This was brought to my attention by a blog reader....
Kingsley Associates is an intelligence gathering company for real estate. Its chief duties are in conducting surveys of residents to find out how they can be better served and what causes tenants to leave. But they also identify "best practices" (remember that gag-inducing term?), provide investor perception studies and strategic consulting (I guess the latter is the opposite of non-strategic consulting).... Also noted on their front page slider: "Kingsley's clients include 8 of the 10 largest investment managers."
Anyway, according to the Kingsley Associates website, the company has been used by PCVST in the past 24 months. (You'll also find some familiar companies on the list.)
I know of no tenant who has as yet received a survey from Kingsley (does anyone really need to do a survey here to find out what's wrong with this place--check this blog, the TA Facebook page and even comments on PCVST's own official Facebook), so my guess is that the use of Kingsley is one prelude to a sale of this complex.
