The brain trust


We think like owners because we are owners.


We directly invest with institutional and private investors in office, industrial, multifamily, and mixed-use assets. We are hands-on, choosing opportunities where we can improve the property and otherwise add value to achieve impressive risk-adjusted returns. On every project, we think like the owner; in many cases, we are one of the owners. Whether or not we have skin in the game, we consistently act and advocate as if every dollar is our own.

The Marlborough House

Seattle, WA

Some people see a half-renovated, 1920s apartment building with mold issues and call it a mess. We called it 12 floors of opportunity.
