CREC invests in real estate opportunities alongside institutional and private clients throughout the U.S.
We target high-quality assets in premium locations, rotating opportunistically between sectors and geographies to pursue attractive risk-adjusted value and returns. We have successfully acquired and disposed of assets across a wide range of asset classes and markets, demonstrating broad experience and capabilities at a national level, as well as a demonstrated track record of generating sound results through various market cycles. This expertise, coupled with an investor first focus, is the cornerstone of CREC’s lengthy and successful track record.
CREC focuses on a select group of asset classes and seasoned operating partners in its search for a well-balanced risk/reward investment opportunity. Properties with the right combination of partner and asset class that survive an intense due diligence process are considered as acquisition candidates.
The structure of every potential deal is balanced to create an investment that supports returns and minimizes risk. Our two-fold strategy is focused on developing the most appropriate capital stack and establishing incentives for operating partners—a structure that maximizes annualized cash flow and back-end capital value.
Property acquisition occurs only after two separate and independent levels of satisfactory due diligence. The due diligence process includes, but is not limited to: reviewing market comparatives, shopping the competition, pricing reviews, detailed facility examination, confirming proposed revenue and expense structures, environmental analysis and capital expenditure budget review.
Across all asset classes, CREC seeks to acquire property that allows for financial growth through strategic and tactical implementation of improvements.
CREC believes a successful real estate investment should provide some level of cash flow throughout the life of the investment—in addition to capital preservation and appreciation at the time of sale. To maximize this opportunity, our primary focus is on the acquisition of existing real estate with in-place cash flow that can be further improved throughout the ownership lifecycle of the asset.
