We have been making creative, opportunistic real estate deals, large and small, for over 40 years. With backgrounds across all disciplines of commercial real estate, our principals and senior associates have successfully closed over $3 billion in brokerage transactions, originated more than $2 billion in mortgages, acquired $500 million in assets and successfully developed or re-positioned more than $500 million in commercial real estate.
We have the ability to stay focused on the macro “big picture” component of multifaceted real estate projects, while also quickly delivering smart, creative solutions for the very smallest of important details, setting us apart from the usual CRE owners and fund managers. We stay in tune with the marketplace and adapt swiftly and dynamically to changes in the business to create unique investments opportunities for our partners on both a large scale, portfolio basis and on individual, one-off properties.
We have built durable, long-term relationships with notable contractors, architects, engineers, title companies, attorneys, and other industry professionals, who share our commitment to creating outstanding results for our partners and investors. We utilize innovative leaders and trusted advisors at the very highest levels in the commercial real estate, mortgage and banking industries.
We invest capital directly through discretionary, closed-end, investment partnerships, counting among our investors and partners some of the country’s most esteemed private equity firms, hedge funds, family offices, pension funds, and high net-worth individuals. Our depth of experience and lasting relationships developed in the capital markets over the last three decades allow us to move quickly to secure capital, both debt and equity, and take advantage of highly opportunistic situations.
We seize upon opportunities to create or maximize asset values through the acquisition, development, adaptive re-positioning, and financial engineering processes. We can move quickly and make timely, informed decisions with small, close-knit management teams. Our ability to present our clients and investors with aggressively minded, value-added investment programs, is augmented with our insistence on attempting to limit the risk level to that which is usually only seen by much less lucrative programs.
We have successfully built an impressive portfolio through acquisitions and developments since RREAF’s formation in 2011. Our portfolio currently includes 3 hotel properties totaling over 359 rooms, 6 multifamily properties owned totaling 628 units, 8 multifamily properties in closing totaling 1853 units, and 150 acres of developable land throughout Texas, Tennessee, and Florida. We will soon break ground on 2 upscale full-service hotels, 2 senior living communities and a self-storage property while continuing to aggressively grow our portfolio via our programmatic multifamily and hospitality asset acquisition platforms.
RREAF has developed extensive contacts and relationships with operating partners, broker networks, lenders, owners, and other industry professionals; all of whom are utilized to source potential investments, and are expected to provide a continuing pipeline for lucrative opportunities in the future. While maintaining an openness to opportunities throughout the United States, RREAF’s emphasis is on investment in Texas, Middle Tennessee and the Florida panhandle.
RREAF will only pursue investments where the real estate offers a significant opportunity for exceptional returns. Conversely, we assess any potential adverse situations that might be likely to occur, and the financial implications of those risks. We also explore the likelihood of profitably exiting the investment within a designated timeframe, always mindful of our efforts to minimize the risk component of any investment. With a talented team of in-house professionals, RREAF has the ability to quickly and efficiently perform economic analysis, market due diligence and property inspections to determine the viability of an opportunity.
RREAF carefully structures all investments with a focus on risk aversion and capital preservation, followed closely by assuring priority returns for partners with invested capital, and ultimately, the total overall profitability to all partners. These concerns guide the governance and control processes, throughout which we strive to closely align the interests of all contributing parties. Financing is the heart and soul of any real estate undertaking and procuring the right capital structure is critical to a deal’s success. RREAF principals have extensive capital markets experience encompassing both the debt and equity components for all real estate investments types.
RREAF has extensive development and operational experience across diverse markets and among disparate property types. This experience gives RREAF the knowledge, resources, and insight to pursue new and innovative methods to create value for real estate properties. RREAF principals are closely involved in both the creation and execution of the business plan and the continuous monitoring and re-evaluation of the strategic steps that are necessary to successfully operate and exit a venture.
RREAF business plans incorporate a flexible exit strategy although most are intended to have an investment horizon of 3-5 years. RREAF and its operating partners continuously monitor for changing or advantageous transaction opportunities, even if that means that a project’s originally planned divestiture target date has to be accelerated or delayed.
