Strategy

The OREI team fosters industry-wide business relationships to discover favorable opportunities that meet our strategic investment criteria and leverage operational efficiencies with necessary third parties to conduct cost efficient, secure, and orderly transactions.

INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY

Our investment philosophy seeks to maximize returns, minimize risk, and achieve superior risk adjusted returns. The Fund focuses on the multifamily sector and maximum value is extracted by leveraging collective relationships, a grounded approach and experience to make decisions driven by data to improve efficiency.

 

Industry Relationships

One Real Estate Investment has deep relationships with the full spectrum of real estate professionals. This provides OREI with real time feedback on the market, market demands, sourcing opportunities, execution of opportunities, collaboration, and implementing best in practice operations to optimize all processes. All of this translates to ensuring maximum success for assets acquired and managed.

Conservative Underwriting

While pursuing superior risk adjusted returns, we actively seek to mitigate downside risk by performing varying level sensitivity analyses, segmented outcome scenarios, and thorough market/submarket trends and patterns. When underwriting, contingencies and expense cushions are added to protect against any potential unforeseen event, specific to either the property or sector as a whole. After acquiring the asset, the team constantly oversees asset performance, and explores exit strategies that produce optimal returns.

Decision
Making

We actively seek opportunities with underperforming operations and functional obsolescence that can be improved to capture unrealized potential and maximize value by optimizing property management operations and making strategic capital improvements. With strong data, we can determine which improvements will generate the most return and keep the asset competitive in the local market.
