GID’s Acquisition Group seeks investment opportunities nationwide and employs a disciplined research-driven investment strategy that focuses on acquiring assets in markets whose fundamental performance drivers suggest that above average returns can be achieved. GID assigns acquisitions responsibility by region and coverage of the Eastern, Central and Western regions is provided by three different acquisition teams that consist of an Acquisition Vice President and an Analyst who are supported by an Acquisition Project Coordinator and a Director of Market Research.
With offices in both San Francisco and Boston, each acquisition team can react quickly to market opportunities and has significant prior history within their region including a network of relationships within the lending, brokerage and ownership communities that are vital to transaction sourcing. A detailed due diligence process is used for all transactions and deeply involves GID’s property management and portfolio and asset management professionals in the formation of the property level business plans for new acquisition assets.
The Acquisition Group is a critical driver in producing strong returns and its long standing market relationships, ability to underwrite diverse operating scenarios, access to capital and long history of performance make it a competitive and well respected real estate investor on behalf of GID’s investment funds .
