A Legacy of Success in Real Estate and Diversified Investments

Since 1998, Crow Holdings Capital – Real Estate and CHC-affiliated entities have managed ten private equity real estate funds with equity capital totaling approximately $6.59 billion, with which nearly $17.9 billion in assets have been acquired or developed. Our success is derived from a fundamental approach to, and deep understanding of, real estate value creation across various asset classes, including warehouses, self-storage facilities, retail centers, retail convenience store and gas station assets, multi-family housing (including Senior-living housing, student housing, and rental and for-sale housing), office buildings, medical office buildings and hospitals, hotels, and land.

Our Investment Approach & Strategy

Our investment approach places a premium on capital preservation through conservative deal structures, and most importantly, portfolio diversification by property type, geography, investment size and risk profile. Our experience has taught us that diversification of real estate investments generally allows us to reduce portfolio risk and volatility. The firm’s many years of experience investing through real estate cycles and strong alignment with its partners inform a cautious – but agile – strategy for our portfolios from acquisition to exit.

Acquisition –

CHC–Real Estate’s strategy includes both the acquisition of existing assets and investment in new development, redevelopment and assets under development. We anticipate that our broad deal sourcing network and experienced real estate staff provide opportunities to create and manage a balanced and diversified portfolio.

Development –

Our managing principals have a long history of development, and CHC–Real Estate intends to capitalize on its experience and capability as opportunities become available. Attractive development opportunities may exist in markets with strong job growth or in supply-constrained submarkets. CHC–Real Estate targets development opportunities with strategic local operating partners.

Value Creation –

Our strategy is focused on properties located in growth markets possessing strong income streams and an opportunity to produce appreciation over an investment’s hold period by employing strategies including:

  1. Increasing net operating income
  2. Redevelopment
  3. Repositioning
  4. Investing in recovering markets
  5. Buying below replacement cost

Leverage Best-in-Class, Best-in-Market Service Providers –

Investment sales brokers and entrepreneurs are often reluctant to bring ideas to companies that vertically integrate, as they are “competitors” and will not consider them for property services.  Because we have deliberately chosen to avoid vertical integration, we have the flexibility to leverage relationships with the best service providers in each market to create investment opportunities.

CHC–Real Estate is fueled by the history and shared wisdom of Crow Holdings’ multiple operating businesses

The Trammell Crow family has been investing in real estate since the 1940s. Today, the business has evolved into Crow Holdings, a multi-billion dollar enterprise encompassing multiple operating businesses and asset classes. CHC–Real Estate draws upon a broad reach and deep industry experience to generate attractive investment opportunities.
