Exhibit 99.1 Portfolio & Strategic Plan Update August 20, 2020

The information contained herein should be read in conjunction with, and is qualified by, the information in KBS Real Estate Investment Trust III’s (the “Company” or “KBS REIT III”) Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 (the “Annual Report”), and in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2020 (the “Quarterly Report”), including the “Risk Factors” contained Important therein. For a full description of the limitations, methodologies and assumptions used to value the Company’s assets and liabilities in connection with the calculation of the Company’s estimated value per share, see the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the Disclosures SEC on December 12, 2019. Forward-Looking Statements Certain statements contained herein may be deemed to be forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Federal Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The Company intends that such forward-looking statements be subject to the safe harbors created by Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These statements include statements regarding the intent, belief or current expectations of the Company and members of its management team, as well as the assumptions on which such statements are based, and generally are identified by the use of words such as “may,” “will,” “seeks,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “expects,” “plans,” “intends,” “should” or similar expressions. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date they are made. The Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise forward-looking statements to reflect changed assumptions, the occurrence of unanticipated events or changes to future operating results over time, unless required by law. Such statements are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties which could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated by such forward-looking statements. The Company makes no representation or warranty (express or implied) about the accuracy of any such forward-looking statements. These statements are based on a number of assumptions involving the judgment of management. You should interpret many of the risks identified in this presentation, in our Annual Report and in our Quarterly Report as being heightened as a result of the ongoing and numerous adverse impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic, together with the resulting measures imposed to help control the spread of the virus, including quarantines, “shelter in place” and “stay at home” orders, travel restrictions, restrictions on businesses and school closures, has had a negative impact on the economy and business activity globally. The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic impacts the Company’s operations and those of its tenants and the Company’s investments in Prime US REIT and a real estate loan receivable depends on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted with confidence, including the scope, severity and duration of the pandemic, the actions taken to contain the pandemic or mitigate its impact, and the direct and indirect economic effects of the pandemic and containment measures, among others. If tenants default on their rent and vacate, the ability to re-lease this space is likely to be more difficult if the economic slowdown continues and any long term impact of this situation, even after an economic rebound, remains unclear. Further, significant reductions in rental revenue in the future related to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic may limit our ability to draw on our revolving credit facilities or exercise our extension options due to covenants described in our loan agreements.

Forward-Looking Statements Important The Company may fund distributions from any source including, without limitation, from offering proceeds or borrowings. Distributions paid through June 30, 2020 have been funded with cash flow from operating activities, debt financing and proceeds from asset sales. There are no guarantees that the Company will continue to pay distributions or that distributions at the current rate are sustainable. No assurances can be Disclosures given with respect to distributions. Actual events may cause the value and returns on the Company’s investments to be less than that used for purposes of the Company’s estimated NAV per share. With respect to the estimated NAV per share, the appraisal methodology used for the appraised properties assumed the properties realize the projected net operating income and expected exit cap rates and that investors would (cont.) be willing to invest in such properties at yields equal to the expected discount rates. The valuation for the Company’s investment in units of Prime US REIT assumed a discount for the holding period risk attributable to transfer restrictions and blockage due to the quantity of units held by the Company and such discount is driven by trading volume in Prime US REIT’s units in the public market and expected future volatility. Though the appraisals of the appraised properties and the valuation of the Company’s investment in units of Prime US REIT, with respect to Duff & Phelps, and the valuation estimates used in calculating the estimated value per share, with respect to Duff & Phelps, the Company’s advisor and the Company, were the respective party’s best estimates as of September 30, 2019, December 3, 2019 or December 4, 2019, as applicable, the Company can give no assurance in this regard. Even small changes to these assumptions could result in significant differences in the appraised values of the appraised properties, the valuation of the Company’s investment in units of Prime US REIT and the estimated value per share. Further, the Company can make no assurances with respect to the future value appreciation of its properties and ultimate returns to investors. The estimated NAV per share does not reflect the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on portfolio values. Stockholders may have to hold their shares for an indefinite period of time. The Company can give no assurance that it will be able to provide additional liquidity to stockholders. The Company’s conflicts committee, which is composed of all of its independent directors, has approved the pursuit of the Company’s conversion to a perpetual-life NAV REIT. However, the Company’s conversion to an NAV REIT remains subject to further approval of the conflicts committee and board of directors, and regulatory, market or business considerations, including the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the markets and the Company’s operations, may influence the Company to delay the implementation of the NAV REIT conversion or abandon the Company’s conversion to an NAV REIT. Even if the Company converts to an NAV REIT, there is no assurance that the Company will successfully implement its strategy. The statements herein also depend on factors such as: future economic, competitive and market conditions; the Company’s ability to maintain and/or improve occupancy levels and rental rates at its real estate properties; and other risks identified in Part I, Item IA of the Company’s Annual Report and in Part II, Item 1A of the Company’s Quarterly Report.

The Impact of COVID-19 on Capital Markets and US Real Estate Investments WWW. KBS.COM 6

COVID-19:The Economy • The Department of Commerce reported that U.S. gross domestic product (GDP), the broadest measure of the nation's economic output, fell by an annualized rate of 5% in the first quarter followed by an even steeper decline of 33% in the second quarter based on initial estimates. Almost 13 million jobs were lost in the second quarter, despite strong job gains in May and June. 1 • On the whole, the US Office market remains relatively resilient, though not immune to the economic downturn. The US shed about 4 million office-using jobs between the first and second quarters, but a far cry from the 40 million-plus jobless claims filed since mid-March. 1 • As restrictions are substantially lifted, there is potential for a strong economic recovery taking hold in the second half of 2020 and lasting into 2021. Auto and air travel are increasing and customers are returning to those restaurants that have reopened for dining. Continued momentum will depend on further fiscal stimulus and a vaccine for COVID-19.2 1 CoStar, US Office National Report, 2Q 2020 2 CBRE, Midyear Review, Global Real Estate Market Conditions Outlook 2020 WWW. KBS.COM 7 7

• According to CoStar, the full impact of the coronavirus outbreak on the US Office COVID-19: sector remains unclear, but expectations are for a drop-off in leasing and transaction Office Market volume to continue beyond the second quarter. The vacancy rate is still below the historical average of about 11%, and well below the 13%-plus rates following the Demand Great Recession.1 • The US had strong fundamentals heading into this downturn which has mitigated some of the pain. Additionally, there hasn't been a large spike in sublease space which would compound any vacancy rate increases. 1 • Some loss of office-using employment will lower leasing demand this year, dropping absorption into negative territory. Most of the negative impacts on demand and values should be confined to this year, with the potential for a robust bounce back in 2021.2 • New supply is delivering into a stagnant leasing environment. But, many of the major projects delivering by the end of this year broke ground well before the pandemic hit and had secured significant pre-lease commitments. 1 1CoStar, U.S. Office National Report, 2Q 2020 2CBRE, Midyear Review, Global Real Estate Market Conditions Outlook 2020 WWW.

• The office market likely will see several quarters of subdued activity until a clearer timeline for reopening COVID-19: appears and a vaccine is developed. This will allow occupiers to effectively plan reopening of workplaces and accurately forecast future needs. CBRE projects that a recovery for most commercial real estate Office Market – the sectors—aside from industrial and multifamily—will not start in earnest until 2021. A full recovery of office demand is not expected until late 2022, and not until 2024 for retail. Hotels should see a full recovery in Road to Recovery demand by late 2023.1 • A recovery is already underway, aided by an unprecedented level of fiscal and monetary stimulus, as well as pent-up demand. The recession is expected to depress interest rates for at least two years, which could support capital flows to commercial real estate. Companies likely will wait until the economic recovery appears firm and sustainable before they lease more space, meaning that a recovery for commercial real estate could lag the economic recovery by at least six months.2 What we've seen in the course of the crisis is just the rapid growth of the digital economy, in particular, the rapid adoption of technologies around meetings. I think it just gives more scope for people working from one or two or three locations. I remain convinced that the office sector is viable in the long term. It's where people meet. It's where creativity happens. It's where clients get helped. That's where we train and bring in younger people into the workforce. And all those things are going to need to reestablish themselves. I think the office sector will bounce back."3 1 CBRE, U.S. Economic Watch, “Q2 GDP Contracts by 32.9%”, July 30, 2020 2 CBRE, Midyear Review, Global Real Estate Market Conditions Outlook 2020 Richard Barkham, CBRE Chief Global Economist 3 CBRE, Richard Barkham, CBRE Global Chief Economist, The Weekly Take, “The Outlook for Commercial Real Estate’s Recovery”, August 10, 2020 WWW.

COVID-19: • Most firms appear to be in no hurry to make major real estate decisions right now. This point is underscored by the spread between renewal deals and new deals. If tenants aren't facing an imminent Space Planning and lease expiration, real estate decisions are on the back burner.1 • The work-from-home experiment has proven technically possible, but at a potential cost to corporate Facilities culture, collaboration and innovation. A pure work-from-home approach has its drawbacks, as company culture suffers, collaboration is challenged and the chance of employee burnout increases. 2 Management • Any increase in remote-working represents a headwind to office demand, with wider ramifications in terms of location priorities for investors and occupiers, though we believe that such headwinds will be offset by the need for companies to lower workplace density long term. 2 • The need to maintain low workplace density and ensure adequate social distancing is requiring employers to institute schedules that have a combination of some employees working in the physical office and others at home.2 • An enhanced focus on health and safety is expected this year and KBS is on the forefront implementing new HVAC air cleaning and filtration systems including heavier-duty HVAC filters that block microbes. Other new concepts include UV light or electrically charged particles in the ductwork to kill the virus. KBS is helping many tenants to reconfigure spaces to maintain safer distances, management of foot flow, scheduling and sanitation protocols. • We believe office space is critical for companies not only for collaboration and results, but also in attracting and training new talent. 1CoStar, U.S. Office National Report, 2Q 2020 2CBRE, Midyear Review, Global Real Estate Market Conditions Outlook 2020 WWW.

• Cash payment for office rents bottomed in May at 82% of pre-COVID levels and recovered to 95% in June. COVID-19: Primary markets saw significant declines in cash payments but are now recovering.1 • In the U.S., average rents are expected to fall by more than 6% this year—the first annual decline since Rent Collections, 2010.2 Renewals and the • As current leases expire, many occupiers are choosing short-term renewals due to economic uncertainty. The process of portfolio rebalancing will take at least three years before occupiers achieve an equilibrium Capital Markets that satisfies lower density for social distancing and higher levels of remote working.2 • Rent growth varies by market. In general, the strongest performers remain sunbelt markets such as Charlotte, Raleigh, Palm Beach and Atlanta. Additionally, growth in some tech and bio-tech hubs such as San Diego, Seattle and Boston has been holding up relatively well.3 • Demand for financing is down due to fewer sales transactions, but the refinancing market remains active. New loans have more restrictive credit standards, such as lower loan-to-value ratios, and the cost of borrowing has increased slightly. Nevertheless, the private equity world has ample liquidity. 2 • Capital available for real estate investment is estimated at $328 billion globally according to the Preqin 2020 Global Real Estate Report. Risk-averse institutional investors, such as pension funds and insurance companies, will continue to invest in core and income-driven assets.2 1 CBRE US Marketflash, August 10, 2020, “COVID & Collections: Are Occupiers Paying their Bills?” 2 CBRE, Midyear Review, Global Real Estate Market Conditions Outlook 2020 3 CoStar, U.S. Office National Report, 2Q 2020 WWW.

COVID-19: Depending upon the duration of the various measures imposed to help control the spread of the virus and the corresponding economic slowdown, some of the Company’s tenants have or will seek rent deferrals or become unable to Rent Collections pay their rent. Through August 7th, rent collections are as follows: Period of Rent Collected % of Rent Collected Q2 2020 97% July 2020 93% The Company has received short-term rent relief requests from tenants who have been directly impacted by mandated closures. The Company evaluates each request on an individual basis. From the start of the COVID-19 crisis through July 2020, the Company has provided temporary deferrals of base rent of approximately 2.2% of total rent billings that primarily will be paid back over a range of 12 to 24 months. In addition, the Company has given short-term rent abatements to a number of tenants within the portfolio’s minor population of retail and restaurant tenants. In most cases, it is in the Company’s best interest to help its tenants remain in business and reopen when shelter-in-place orders or other mandated closures are lifted. Rent relief requests to date may not be indicative of collections or requests in any future period. WWW. KBS.COM 12

COVID-19 Capital Management Capital Markets The impact of COVID-19 has placed significant constraints on corporate liquidity in the financial markets. As a result, we are slightly delaying the timing of refinancings and certain asset sales.
