Commercial Real Estate
In the Hudson Valleys fast growing competitive marketplace, Mansfield
Commercial Real Estate helps clients and customers make deliberate, sound
The firm is distinguished by its ability to provide the most up-to-date,
comprehensive inventory of commercial properties presented in a format
that facilitates the decision-making process.
The process begins with an assessment of the clients needs. A team
of real estate professionals headed by Elisabeth
Mansfield identifies all properties in the designated region that
are a fit with that clients requirement. The appropriate properties
are presented in writing and discussed, and the list is narrowed to a
manageable number for the clients further consideration.
Site visits are arranged at the clients convenience, and followed
up with a comparative financial analysis of preferred properties, allowing
the client to make an informed decision.
Landlords and other property owners also hire the firm to market their
commercial real estate. They know the firm will evaluate and position
their property effectively - targeting likely customers and ensuring broad
exposure in the marketplace.
The company has developed and maintains a comprehensive database of each
office and industrial building in Orange County, tracking inventory levels
and vacancy rates. Each year, the company analyzes this data to publish
its Overview of the Orange County, NY Commercial Real Estate Market.
The County of Orange and its economic development officials utilize the
company's research as well, and when reporting inventory levels and vacancy
rates, their source is Mansfield Commercial Real Estate. The New York
Times, writing about commercial real estate trends in Orange County, also
relied on Mansfield Commercial:
York Times, March 26,
While the speculative market fell dormant in Orange County in the
late 1990's — and only 65,000 square feet were built last year
— officials say they are seeing new interest.
But for now, the build-to-suit industrial market is the predominant
one. Elisabeth Mansfield, the founder of Mansfield Commercial Real
Estate in Goshen, estimates that the annual amount of built-to-suit
space in Orange County grew to almost 1.1 million square feet last
year, from 500,000 square feet in 2001 and 30,000 square feet in 2000.
Last year, she said, the largest such project in the county was a
center in Chester for Amscan, a party supply company based in Elmsford,

Retailers, meanwhile, are beginning
to move beyond the big-box stores that seem omnipresent in the triangular
area formed by Middletown, Newburgh and Harriman. In terms of other
types of stores, the county until quite recently was "tremendously
under-retailed," according to Elisabeth Mansfield, the founder of
Mansfield Commercial Real Estate in Goshen.
Lately, retailers have been focusing on some lesser-known parts of the county, like Chester. And they are also trying to bring more high-end stores as well as those, like Gander Mountain, that are destination spots in their own right.
Mansfield Commercial Real Estate
is known throughout the region for its market knowledge and its ability
to present that knowledge in a clear and comprehensive manner. Corporations,
developers, attorneys, economic development officials, lending institutions,
appraisers and other real estate brokers utilize the firms services,
making it the dominant real estate source in the region.
