With a successful record of revitalizing “tired” properties, we have made some very smart investments. Upgrading value-add assets in attractive markets can typically provide enhancement of both the property cash flow and the overall asset value. That can be a very smart investment. We offer qualified investors the opportunity to invest directly with us in such projects through private limited partnerships.
Direct Real Estate Investing
We are a private equity real estate investment and asset management firm focused on creating wealth for investors. We offer qualified investors opportunities to invest directly in revenue-producing real estate projects through a structure of Real Estate Limited Partnerships (RELPs).
M+H sources, then purchases select properties through debt instruments, and sells participations to qualified investors
through Limited Partnership Units. M+H manages the properties with the goal of providing both annual cash distributions to its Unit holders from property income, as well as increased asset value through expert asset management that can translate into increased Unit value on future disposition of the properties.
Focused on Value-Add Propositions in Growth Markets
Our acquisition focus is on mid-cap, value-add assets in regional growth markets. Under strict criteria, we typically identify projects with cash flows that can be grown, and with enhancement potential.
An Opportunistic Mandate
In a high valuation, low cap-rate environment, upgrading value-add projects may have more opportunity for increased value through both improved cash flow and asset enhancement. M+H is poised to exploit this opportunity as the experience of the executive team is not just in commercial real estate, but mostly in the value-add sector.
All levels of M+H projects remain under the strict control of the executive team; asset management, facility & property management, brokerage & leasing, and financing. We are a vertically integrated operation, allowing us to aggressively and efficiently manage our projects to deliver the full benefit of direct real estate ownership to our Unit holders.
