A preferred approach to investment   

PREF believes that successful real estate investing is accomplished by understanding our clients' financial objectives, using our market knowledge and relationships and applying almost eight decades of combined experience and diverse expertise to achieve exceptional results from ordinary opportunities.

Investment Approach

PREF builds a trusted alliance with its partners by co-investing in every deal.  We assemble investor groups based on similar objectives, risk tolerances and capital availability to purchase properties that otherwise might be unattainable.  We invest with care and confidence with our partners’ best interest top of mind.  The preferred deal size is variable and based on a particular investor or investor group’s objectives.

Competitive Advantage

Our competitive advantage is being nimble.  Our strategic, hands-on approach positions PREF to capitalize on opportunities that may be overlooked by larger institutional investors who are restricted by process and narrow investment criteria.  PREF’s personalized, proven approach keeps client objectives paramount without the distractions or conflicts created by in-house profit centers.
