Proprietary Deal Access
We pursue virtually all of our investment leads outside of traditional auctions or competitive processes. We capitalize on the extensive network of relationships of our management team to source opportunities on an exclusive or semi-exclusive basis. Additionally, we generate off-market opportunities by proactively approaching lenders and property owners with proposals informed by superior market information.
Experienced Investment Team
GS Realty’s senior partner has extensive experience in acquiring and divesting real estate in the Southwestern U.S. GS Realty’s day-to-day operations are run by a team of professionals. GS Realty’s team identifies and capitalizes on attractive investment opportunities by employing our broad deal sourcing networks, deal execution skills, and prudent investment practices. The principals of GS Realty have intimate knowledge of GS Realty’s target market and proven experience in real estate investment, debt and equity financings, structured finance, and fund formation.
We draw upon the extensive corporate and real estate experience of GS Realty to develop and negotiate optimal acquisition terms and strategies. These techniques have enabled GS Realty to satisfy seller objectives while optimizing transaction financing and minimizing downside risk.
Disciplined Investment Process
We undertake comprehensive due diligence prior to each investment, which includes a thorough, systematic review of enumerated asset-specific criteria. We believe this systematic approach differentiates our investment strategy from financial arbitrageurs, who typically focus primarily on macroeconomic factors.
Successful Investment Record
GS Realty’s management team has implemented our investment strategy and business model to generate superior returns on commercial and residential real estate investments within GS Realty’s target market.
We utilize two primary sources of deal flow: (i) Referrals through our extensive network of relationships; and (ii) Active in-house origination of new investment ideas and targets. Additionally, the reputation of GS Realty for a decisive, constructive approach to investing has enhanced its access to attractive investment opportunities and its ability to attain exclusive negotiations with sellers.
We typically pursue investment opportunities on an exclusive or semi-exclusive basis, particularly those sourced through the relationships of our management team. GS Realty prefers to pursue exclusive transactions where it has the ability to conduct comprehensive due diligence and negotiate an optimal transaction structure for the investment. This approach ensures GS Realty maintains strict discipline in investigating and valuing each investment.
Superior Deal Flow Channels
GS Realty utilizes extensive, long-term relationships with a broad range of influential market participants to access distressed investment opportunities. Developed over more than a decade, our deal channels included banks and private lenders, builders and developers, bankruptcy professionals and attorneys, brokers, and other market participants (our “Network Group”). These market relationships give GS Realty a competitive advantage and provide preferential visibility and access to exceptional deal channels.
We also utilize our Network Group to provide greater market intelligence, add expertise during the due diligence process, and dispose of investments more profitably.
Proprietary Market Research
GS Realty utilizes a number of methods to generate off-market opportunities. This approach begins with the use of local market knowledge to identify potentially attractive properties and the respective owners. This market knowledge and research enables GS Realty to identify, review, and distinguish such opportunities on a daily basis to augment the deal flow generated through its extensive network.
Disciplined Investment Approach
Disciplined investment procedures, selective investment criteria, and careful portfolio management processes are implemented with the intent to mitigate risk and improve returns for GS Realty’s Members. GS Realty monitors a variety of macroeconomic and micro-economic trends, market dynamics, and industry fundamentals through proprietary methods and access to local experts. In addition, individual investment selections are based on the analysis of local acquisition and development trends, growth potential, and valuation relative to other real estate. GS Realty pays particularly close attention to the local water, utility, and zoning situations.
