We have the assets to make cash offers, with no financing contingency, and we close transactions quickly. But we will never pressure you into a quick commitment. Your partnership with us could take a variety of forms:

  • Sell 100% or stay on board in a joint venture

  • Become a partner operator, a manager or exit completely

  • Sell or lease us the real estate
