Areas of Expertise
We look to invest in quality residential properties in markets with strong rental demand and favorable employment trends. High operating margins and consistent cash flow create a stable base for a well balanced real estate portfolio. An efficient transaction market gives investors a source of liquidity when it is needed.
Baby boomers are aging and the long term demand for seniors housing will continue to grow as this happens. Our history investing in seniors housing dates back over 20 years, to a time when very little institutional capital was active in the asset class. We apply the lessons we have learned over the years in order to identify investments in properties that are poised to profit from this demographic tailwind.
Business is forever changing for retailers, and as investors in and owners of retail properties, we look to invest in assets that stand to benefit from current trends. Our experience gives us the foresight and conviction to implement the physical renovations needed to attract the mix of retail tenants that will generate short term returns and long term stability.
In locations with high land cost and a dense population base, the highest and best use of a site typically includes multiple property types. A well executed mixed-use plan can be very profitable and serve as a hub of activity for a community - which creates inherent long term value. We use our expertise across the various property types in order to identify opportunities for mixed-use developments that product-type specialists might miss.
