Ash Patel’s RE journey started with a mixed use building in a college town where he learned that residential tenants added wear and tear to his apartments and commercial tenants improved their space. In the 10+ years since that first property Ash went on to purchase retail, industrial, warehouse, mixed use, restaurants, medical, office etc. The commonality in his deals are extraordinary returns beyond what Multi-Family properties can produce. He has invested in over 30 properties with a total value of over $50mm.linkedin

We have developed partnerships with originators through a stringent screening process. We have a long-term view for the partners that help us source deals as they are well-versed in finding opportunities that will maximize the value of our investors.
Our strict criteria help us sift through thousands of properties before choosing the one that meets our exacting specifications. The investment team will then conduct their analysis of the investment opportunity, and if the team decides to move forward with the opportunity, it will then go through the investment committee.
During committee review, experienced investment professionals unassociated with the opportunity provide a fresh perspective and challenge the investment team’s thesis hoping to identify any potential risks. When an opportunity makes the cut, we’ll share it with you so you can invest alongside us.
Once we have acquired the property, we will execute on our business plan to increase the value by upgrading the property, improving the tenant mix, and re-negotiating leases. Additionally, we will look for nearby development opportunities to provide additional value to the property. Our team’s goal upon execution is to maximize investor returns while carefully focusing on preserving investors’ capital.
Our targeted hold periods range from 3-7 years, after which we sell or refinance each property and return capital, plus appreciation to our partners. Positive cash flow is typically distributed to our investors quarterly and /or in lump sum payouts at disposition.
