Highline Real Estate Partners invests in real estate through direct investments, joint ventures with local operating partners, and our platform investment companies. We seek investments in
• Single Asset Transactions
• Portfolio Transactions
• Targeted Development
Highline Real Estate Partners also seeks to form new investment platforms with experienced real estate investment and operating teams that have a specific asset class, or geographic focus. We provide stable, “permanent capital” to fund a combination of operating company working capital and sponsor equity investment needs. Our goal is to have each platform investment company operate in perpetuity.
Highline approaches real estate investing like a business owner, as opposed to a financial trader. Our business building mindset starts by defining an operating agenda with specific commercial and operational initiatives and detailed action plans to grow cash flow and value to the fullest potential. We seek to achieve an investment basis that generates an attractive baseline of current yield, then improve that baseline over time through execution of the operating agenda. The result is an attractive risk-return profile that is better positioned to perform across real estate cycles. This also enables our capital and that of our partners to generate attractive returns over longer timeframes than is typically the case.
Our approach is different from many investors who view real estate simply as a commodity subject to cycles and thus focus their attention narrowly on pricing relative to other financial assets. This mindset places far more emphasis on investment timing rather than operational impact / business fundamentals and can lead to behavior that sub-optimizes investment returns.
We believe our investment results are attributable to the depth of our operating and financial expertise, together enabling us to identify attractive investment opportunities, design and implement value-enhancing operating strategies, and avoid many of the inherent risks of real estate investing.
