Our team

Investor Services

Our elite team of institutional investment sales specialists sees beyond the bricks and mortar to analyze how property acquisition, ownership and disposition can accelerate the success of your financial portfolio.

We work with national and global institutions and investors to identify, evaluate and select assets that best complement their portfolio, property performance, income goals and risk profile. This often requires complex analysis and innovative thinking to provide a defensible, well-researched strategy for asset acquisition.

When the time is right for disposition, we provide a clear competitive analysis and transaction history of comparable assets to maximize the property's momentum in the market. Through our best-in-class marketing technology and our creative approach, we drive strong investor interest in properties. At the same time, we work with you to preserve confidentiality, minimize disruption to tenants and prevent surprises in the due diligence process.

Through our integrated platform, we offer owners debt placement, valuation and appraisal services, property assessment and management, and project management services to increase the asset's income stream and overall value.
