Investment Criteria

Guardian focuses on Pacific Northwest value-add multifamily opportunities. Preference is given to first or second-tier cities in the West. This includes acquiring projects that are impaired or undervalued due to temporary market conditions, weak ownership, or management or leasing issues.

$20M-$100M with a target size in the mid-market $30M-$70M range. We also pursue most forms of government-assisted and/or regulated multifamily projects with minimum values of $5M. These include not only traditional fee-simple purchases, but also General Partner or Limited Partner interests.

Class B multifamily properties in Class A locations exhibiting best-in-class qualities for renovation and repositioning in their markets. Also, government-assisted projects in rural areas or smaller market projects.

Emphasis on aggressive expense management, competitive rents, and additional income sources. Strategic long-term asset management and intelligent capital investments ensure outstanding client results.

Financing properties with a blend of debt and equity appropriate to the asset type and risk. The level of leverage used is determined by the purpose of the project, with significant value add by restructuring ineffective capital stacks with accretive financing.
