Connaught’s Real Estate Advisory Services (“REAS”) group is organized to deliver a full complement of real estate and financial expertise seldom found in a single source, offering a cohesive, strategic approach to our clients’ real estate challenges. We strive to achieve best-in-class levels of service that help our clients not only identify optimal exit strategies for their investments, but maximize their potential return-on-capital.
We understand your business. Our professionals have experience in both the financial and technical aspects of real estate investment and development, but also have the skills to effectively evaluate “back-office” accounting and operations. We have in-depth knowledge of the U.S. residential real estate industry and understand the many challenges investors face today.
We benefit from our industry-wide network of relationships. We do not lose sight of the personal side of the business and develop close relationships within each clients’ organization – ranging from executive leadership to on-site development/management. Additionally, through our industry-wide network of professional relationships we have built with lenders, developers, engineers, and legal specialists, we can bring to bear the appropriate market expertise to focus on helping each client address their specific real estate needs.
We help create innovative strategies to get results. Connaught professionals take a creative approach to serving each client and follow through to help confirm that our actions support your strategies. In working closely with each client, we help set attainable objectives, implement initiatives, and address our clients’ goals.
We have effective, focused methodologies and tools. Connaught has developed a proprietary Asset Management database that enables our team to rigorously monitor all aspects of our clients’ portfolio, allowing for proactive and educated decision-making on its investments.
We draw on our experience. Our practitioners offer a significant breadth and depth of real estate industry experience with backgrounds in debt and equity financing, consulting, asset management, investment management, brokerage, construction, engineering, and law. Because of this experience, we can share the skills and insights that have helped other clients.
We have a dedicated real estate advisory practice. Connaught currently has numerous individuals operating in various capabilities within our Real Estate Advisory Services group. To our clients, this means that they can feel secure in the knowledge that their service provider is committed to the real estate space to help address any and all business needs.
Our Real Estate Advisory Services cover the complete lifecycle of an asset: feasibility, planning, financing, acquisition/development/re-development, stabilization, and disposition. Knowledge, experience and on-going industry leadership bring clients unmatched performance from our market-focused real estate services.
Our mission is to help our clients maximize returns, enhance competitive positioning, and improve decision-making related to their real estate investments.
