Featured Office Real Estate Fund Manager

Vertical Ventures Fund I

Founded in 2004, Vertical Ventures is an established, highly-focused investor, developer and operator of institutional quality commercial real estate assets. The firm concentrates on identifying, acquiring and revitalizing well-located, quality projects that are temporarily undervalued. Our primary focus is on office, R&D and industrial properties in well-established, supply-constrained, submarkets in Northern California. The professionals of the firm average nearly 20 years’ experience transacting and operating real estate and generating attractive investment returns from both institutional and entrepreneurial platforms. Investments are made on a direct and joint-venture basis, in collaboration with select institutional and high-net worth individuals and family offices. The unwavering goal of the firm is to extract unrecognized value from the real estate and maximize returns to its investors, while providing a high level of service and communication to our financial partners. This is accomplished through meticulous adherence to a sustained investment process, which involves: 1) The astute discovery, investigation and acquisition of strategically located and undervalued properties; 2) The aggressive execution of thoughtful, detailed, and efficient business plans, and; 3) The skilled and efficient disposition of assets at the optimum time, based upon property-specific economics and general market conditions.

Featured Senior Living Fund Manager

McFarlin Opportunistic Senior Living Fund I, LP

McFarlin Opportunistic Senior Living Fund I, LP (the “Partnership” or the “Fund”) is formed to acquire non-performing loans and value-add acquisitions of senior living properties across the U.S. Leveraging over 50 years of collective senior living management experience, the team specializes in identifying and acquiring distressed assets in a market segment that is experiencing temporary disruption from supply-demand imbalance. The Sponsor will look to create value through acquisition of value-add assets, buying loans at a discount to Par value, and by implementing capital improvement plans, creating operational efficiencies, and improving operations. The portfolio is expected to benefit significantly from an aggregation premium upon sale.
