A Word from Peter Dwares
“Our company is unique in that for nearly 35 years we have been buying potentially undervalued properties (if significant monies are expended to upgrade) in overlooked areas at attractive prices when compared to their replacement cost. We go for geographic areas often that have been hit by a local economic downturn and multi tenant buildings to spread risk. It works. Our IRR since we began is over 22% per annum.”

We put back into the community not only by creating physically attractive buildings. We also support organizations involved with special needs children through Uncle Nathans Day, for AASK, and with mentoring inner city kids through Pathways For Kids. We balance business with social responsibility.”
