Our Approach

Metzler’s advisory services are based on four core processes.  First and foremost, we create tailored investment strategies anchored upon each client’s specific objectives and tempered by a thorough understanding of market dynamics.  We then source, qualify and acquire the proper mix of assets to fit the strategy.  During the hold period, our asset management team combines objectives-based planning with outcomes-based execution to ensure excellent asset performance. Finally, we capture the targeted value creation by pursuing disciplined disposition of assets as they mature. Here is how it works:

Tailored Strategies

The most important thing we do for our clients is to help them achieve their investment objectives. We start by listening intently and then clearly understanding every facet of those objectives MORE

Informed Investments

Real estate investment takes place in a localized, inefficient market. Successful investment depends on an intimate knowledge of local conditions, local players and local practices.  At Metzler, we focus on understanding what’s different, on identifying the inefficiencies, and then on capitalizing on those inefficiencies. This allows us to source and pursue acquisitions that satisfy our client’s unique objectives.

We review hundreds of investment opportunities each year. From these, we selectively evaluate those few that meet each of our client’s unique investment strategies. We then actively pursue those remaining candidates that satisfy our rigorous underwriting and evaluation standards.

Comprehensive due diligence allows our experienced asset management professionals and specialized third-party experts to ensure a complete understanding of the legal, financial and physical characteristics of a proposed investment.

Finally, we handle all the activities necessary to complete an efficient and accurate closing of the investment. All along the way, from initial underwriting to final closing, the investment team works closely with Metzler’s asset management team to confirm all investment expectations and ensure a smooth transition into ownership.

Our reputation for thorough underwriting, straightforward negotiation and certainty of closing often allows us to win assets, not with the highest price, but with the most credible price and as the most credible buyer.

“Successful investment depends on an intimate knowledge of local conditions.”
