In the ever changing real estate market, service providers are in business to create and deliver real value for clients, shareholders and employees. Companies operating as service providers must consistently evolve and adapt to new client expectations and changes in the overall market by providing the highest quality of market insight.

In today's environment, existing and newly formed real estate funds face many challenges. The tumultuous economy has made it difficult for existing funds to continue to perform at the superior risk-adjusted returns that investors have come to expect.
On the other hand, while certain new funds find it more difficult to raise new capital needed to get their products off the ground, funds dedicated to investing in distressed real estate assets and debt securities are focused on taking advantage of a robust pipeline of opportunities in today's domestic and international real estate markets.
Elite teams provide a broad range of advice to institutional real estate investors and private equity real estate fund managers of global real estate funds. Our work encompasses every stage of the fund investment cycle.
