Our Guiding Tenets
Our vision is to be the leading hospitality real estate developer + operations service provider in the markets we target. We consistently strive to develop collaborative partnerships, based on transparency and mutual trust. These attributes serve to build enduring associate and partner relationships. As we expand, we are committed to these principles which have served our company throughout our existence.
We strive to achieve our mission by creating optimum value across our curated real estate portfolio, resulting in excellent returns for investors. We accomplish this plan in conjunction to offering a professional, ethical, and performance-based work environment for our team members.
Messaging, steadfastness, and customer loyalty are core values expressed in each of our business sectors. By taking the time to understand our partner’s needs, we are able to provide comprehensive and sound investment opportunities. We pride ourselves on continually delivering superior results to optimize the value of our hotel assets in all our markets.
As a valued team member, Mid-Continent’s Design + Development business plan includes elements of timing, construct-ability, energy savings assessments, and materials evaluations. These items determine the longevity of a return on investment that is vitally important to our overall objectives. Understanding and executing the plan determines our success for each project and in return conveys our commitment to each sponsor.Inline with our company's philosophy, we work lean. This allows our team to keep a constant pulse with each development as we move through the multifaceted process of bringing projects to fruition. We have an in-house team composed of design & general contracting professionals to create accurate and proportional market budgets. This is essential from a development perspective as we can predict cost by tailoring scopes of work, along with term and condition evaluations . All new projects are analyzed by our development, construction & operations teams. We work through every scenario and real-time market conditions to come to an equitable decision process. Owning an asset applies the same rules to annual budgeting for ongoing investments. From a capital expenditure perspective, there are no assumptions in the final underwriting evaluations. Our team visits each property to define the capital projects annually. As we fine-tune and improve each hotel’s business plan, our construction team works with operations to create an accurate budget for the following year. In both scenarios, the budget is based on how the asset is performing in the market. We know labor costs. We know material costs. We take the guesswork out and have highly skilled staff to continually evaluate all matters before they become issues.
Our priority as an asset manager is to strategically oversee the hotels operation and exceed the hotel's investment objectives. Whether that's assessing brand agreements for amicable resolutions, adjusting capital budgets to account for the various operational expenditures, or performing risk analysis to calibrate revenue and lower costs, we handle all these scenarios to securely foresee profitable returns on investments. By focusing our experience on the executive details, it allows our associates to provide that sense of comfort and known expectations to our guests throughout our curated portfolio. "Each hotel is personal to our team. Our continued success reinforces and facilitates the availability of new opportunities."
