Deal Types

We're always looking to improve and add to our deal flow.  Brokers and others that bring us investment opportunities are welcome to invest some or all of their commission in the project. 

Our focus is on opportunistic industrial and retail acquisitions and ground-up development.  However, we’ve been involved in a wide array of tenant joint-ventures, sale/leasebacks and other deal types.  Many of our favorite projects would fit into the category of “story deals” where we didn’t know what we were looking for until we found it.

By way of example, our first southern California acquisition involved a tenant that had a fixed price option to acquire their building for less than it was worth.  They weren’t in a position to buy real estate but their broker knew we could perform and that we’d treat his client well.  We quickly created a partnership with the tenant, provided the equity, sourced the debt and closed the acquisition.  A year later the tenant had some much-needed working capital and our investors had a return on equity of over 150%.  We weren’t looking for tenants with below market purchase options but we’re always looking for unique opportunities.

More recent projects include the development of a $12 million grocery anchored shopping center in the North Park neighborhood of San Diego, preferred developer work with Kohl’s Department Stores, and industrial acquisitions in San Diego County, the Inland Empire, Washington, Texas, Colorado, Georgia and Florida. 

We routinely partner with our tenants to help them meet their real estate needs as cost effectively as possible.  The common denominator in most of our deals is the need for trust, speed and creativity.
