At CWS Capital Partners, we have built an organization that carries out all aspects of apartment investing and management. This requires that we field a deep and competent team. We believe this approach, rather than hiring third-party management companies that don’t share our incentives, culture, and operating philosophy, allows us to have a much deeper and capable organization to generate strong, risk-adjusted returns. When assessing prospective investments, we tap into our operational knowledge and insights and overlay those with our internal assessment of supply and demand and valuation to identify compelling opportunities.
We have cultivated strong relationships with the best brokers in our markets as a result of our strong track record of closing properties we put under contract which helps us be a very competitive buyer. We are also willing to assume loans with debt that has a cost and structure that may not be so favorable which serves to reduce the buyer pool and offer a pricing discount to compensate us for assuming this sub-optimal debt. Finally, we have built up strong teams in the areas of development and capital projects which allows us to build and reposition properties when we think those offer favorable return potential relative to the risk incurred.
