The Feldman Companies have owned and developed over 1.5 million square feet of real estate with additional projects in various stages of development and entitlements.
Early Value Creation
Our team looks to accomplish “early value creation” for our investors by having an institutional grade property that is highly desirable in the marketplace. We look to have capital events such as refinance or sale early in the investment time horizon, capturing high returns to investors.
The main areas to manage risks in a development project are throughout the due diligence and entitlement period, during development, and through lease up to stabilization. We work every day to minimize those risks. By investing our money, time, and resources prior to bringing investors, we have essentially removed some of the greatest aspects of risks.
Long Term Relationships
We understand the value of strong relationships in our business. Our team has tenured deep relationships over 25 years that drive our consistent results in success. We focus on time with all of our partnerships from every aspect of an active opportunity. This includes our investors, 3rd party professionals, brokers, and industry professionals.
