Investment History

We have a strong investment discipline and adjust our investment strategy to capitalize on cyclical opportunities, often taking a contrarian approach to investing in real estate.
  • In the 1990’s, we primarily purchased value-add properties from distressed sellers.
  • In 2001 and 2002, Brookwood refrained from deploying capital due to inopportune market conditions.
  • Between 2002 and 2005, as rental rates in commercial properties increased nationally, we acquired properties in major markets with improving fundamentals, profiting from the increase in net operating income.
  • As one of the first real estate firms to recognize that the historic run-up in asset prices that began in 2003 was unsustainable, between 2005 and 2008 Brookwood sold every remaining real estate asset acquired prior to 2005.
  • From 2005 to 2007, we shifted our investment strategy and focused on properties with solid-credit tenants under long-term leases, using long-term debt financing to ensure the stability of the properties over the anticipated downturn in the cycle.
  • From July of 2007 until December of 2009, we once again refrained from acquiring any commercial assets due to inopportune market conditions.
  • From 2008 to 2010, we pursued opportunistic investments in undervalued residential and commercial real estate in specifically targeted regions of the U.S.
  • To take advantage of the impending recovery in the commercial real estate markets, we now are targeting investments in value-add properties in selected regions of the U.S. where we anticipate that we can obtain attractive risk-adjusted returns.
