The most valuable assets to any successful business are the employees working productively within their organization and their ability to leverage external relationships for the benefit of their clients and investors. We believe, as with our investors, the collaboration and coordination of highly qualified and skilled individuals working as a team for a common goal are more valuable as a whole and have a greater probability for success than operating independently.
The founding principals of Capital REIT have more than 60 years of commercial real estate experience in acquisitions, development, leasing, asset management, and portfolio management. They have purchased in excess of $2.5 billion of commercial real estate for various ownership structures. The principals have built strong and reliable relationships with commercial real estate brokers, developers, investment bankers, lenders, and owners.
Our operating companies are continuously focused on attracting and retaining self motivated and highly skilled professionals. We strive to create a sense of ownership and pride for our employees. The productivity and success of our employees allow for the cultivation of strong partnerships.
