Opportunity. Execution. Value Creation.

Phoenix Investors (“Phoenix”) is private real estate company established in 1994.  Our senior leadership and advisors have over twenty-five years of experience in successfully acquiring, managing and operating commercial real estate from coast to coast.  This experience allows Phoenix to identify opportunities and apply its highly disciplined investment strategy focused on risk/reward metrics during acquisition. By reducing downside risks, we simultaneously enhance the potential for substantial value creation during the execution phases. This creates investment value and returns in excess of industry norms for our transactions – many of which have unique characteristics and solutions not envisioned by competitors.

Our substantial experience allows our management team to analyze acquisitions from all perspectives and from different scenarios, including:

  • Distressed. We understand all forms, whether (1) borrower distress due to over-leverage, tax liability issues, or personal guarantees; (2) lender distress, including the need for portfolio sales and/or note sales; or (3) property distress where capital improvements are needed and related costs must be properly evaluated;
  • Portfolio Repositioning.  We understand that traditional concepts and solutions typically used over the last five, ten or fifteen years may not be optimal today.  We seek to find the proper and, sometimes, creative solutions to help corporations dispose of their excess real estate, whether structuring a sale-leaseback transaction for an operating facility or acquiring a former, single-tenanted industrial plant with environmental issues.
  • Trend Driven.  We are adept at identifying underlying themes and nuances that cause changes in the micro and macro marketplaces and drive value creation. For example, we can identify and evaluate single tenant net-leased transactions when the market has mispriced the tenant credit risk or fundamentals of the underlying real estate.  Further, we can identify and evaluate underserved and over-served retail and industrial markets to target where best to acquire properties. We also identify and evaluate  properties that may be vulnerable to direct competition and exterior forces such as internet commerce.   And finally, we understand the challenges and benefits of various property types in a dynamically changing economy.
