Direct Equity

At Real Estate Investors, our objective is simple: generate superior long-term investment results for our clients. Through REI’s experienced equity team, we invest in markets throughout the United States across all major property types and across the risk/return spectrum. Our disciplined and cycle-tested investment approach is driven by market research, active asset management, and proactive risk management to ensure that we make optimal investment decisions and invest and manage our clients’ capital prudently.

Our Resources

Our “one stop shop” structure means we have deep resources to manage our equity investments.


Our geographically specialized acquisitions professionals leverage REI’s wide range of industry relationships, market reputation, and their own local market knowledge to meet client needs, targeting $1.5-$2 billion in acquisitions per year. REI is committed to the ongoing incorporation of ESG+R  into our investment decision making process from acquisition to disposition.

Asset Management
Our asset managers take a hands-on approach to property operations, proactive risk management, and the strategic use of capital to maximize cash flow, create value, and capitalize on attractive trading opportunities. By adhering to our ESG+R objectives, we seek to deliver high-quality products and services to our clients and tenants.

Portfolio Management

By combining top-down, research-based strategies with bottom-up market knowledge, our portfolio managers construct and manage diversified portfolios that seek to reduce risk, provide stability, and generate income.

Support Services
Our team of in-house engineers, architects, construction and sustainability specialists, and appraisers work with our Acquisition and Asset Management teams to manage the physical due diligence process, maintain our buildings in a cost effective manner, and ensure well-informed, in-house and external valuations. Additionally, REI’s dedicated market research team provides valuable macro and micro level market insights and updates on changing market conditions, providing our team with well-informed investment decisions.
