Acquisitions & Investments
PRES is an active investor in commercial real estate for its own fund and on behalf of a select group of institutional and private investors.
PRES optimizes risk-adjusted returns by acquiring high-quality, well-located property investments, with a competitive advantage in a submarket. Careful attention to the risk profile translates into discipline on the purchase. Once acquired, the principals of PRES take an active approach and position the investment to out-compete the market and maximize returns. This strategy allows for shorter lease-up periods, higher tenant retention, greater long-term rent growth, and multiple exit options at the end of the investment.
With individual attention and hands-on involvement from the entire team, PRES provides incomparable service to its clients and tenants. PRES implements business plans which emphasize proactive leasing strategies, efficient operations, cost-effective capital expenditures to reposition assets, and outstanding customer service. The results are higher tenant retention, favorable lease terms, and higher occupancy. To create value for its partners, PRES frequently evaluates long-term investment strategies to assess market risk and to identify opportunities to buy, sell or finance.
