Investments

Our investment strategy is focused and effective: identify and pursue equity and debt investments in commercial real estate nationwide and in particular, the Washington Metropolitan region, while carefully observing and responding to market changes. Prime targets include strategic investments in properties that have been poorly managed or are located in improving or growing submarkets. Through renovation, improved management, aggressive leasing, refinancing, and new development, we skillfully enhance the value of our investments and mitigate investor risk.
