Our real estate investment strategy is grounded in continuing research and unparalleled due diligence, both in response to individual investment opportunities, and on a broader basis, to identify opportunities that arise from both secular changes and cyclical trends. We strive to identify trends and opportunities that enable us to facilitate new investments.

We also invest in each of our real estate developments. In this fashion, we ensure that our team has a personal financial commitment to each investment we make, further aligning our interests with those of our investors and operating partners.  We place capital in a wide range of real estate assets throughout the United States including retail, mixed-use, office, residential and undeveloped land. We pride ourselves on being transparent with our investors and keeping everyone well informed.

We work with owner-occupants to unlock the hidden value of their real estate holdings.  Sale-Leaseback financing allows you to use and control essential real estate without employing vast sums of capital into an illiquid asset class.  A Sale-Leaseback allows owners to sell the property and immediately lease it back from the buyer, unlocking capital that can then be deployed in more productive ways:

  • Reinvest into existing operations

  • Finance growth and/or expansion plans

  • Make an acquisition

  • Pay down debt

  • Engage in investment diversification strategies (long-term estate planning)

  • Reallocate capital into more productive uses

Contact us now if you are interested in a Sale-Leaseback or Build-to-Suit Proposal.
