Asset Class Benefit
- Class B+/A- assets are attracting a wider demographic, including the working-class population, downsizing baby boomers, and millennials entering the rental market for the first time.
Green Leaf Capital Partners focuses on Class A/B suburban apartments. These affordable apartments in thriving metro markets appeal to a wide range of tenants. The firm invests in well-located assets in growing markets, avoids distressed assets, and creates value through moderate renovation and better management.
Green Leaf uses several strategies to boost team and resident longevity, including strong team connections, modern communication technologies, and community engagement.
Green Leaf’s deep industry relationships yield deal flows in a wide range of appropriate MSAs. With the leadership team’s accurate knowledge of current debt parameters in underwriting acquisitions, these industry relationships allow the firm to acquire opportunities quickly and efficiently.
Along with a disciplined and analytical approach to investment evaluation, conservative assumptions regarding future performance help the firm ensure that correct expectations are set. Green Leaf seeks to acquire properties that generate strong current income and long-term appreciation in all transactions. By maintaining consistent and rigorous underwriting standards, the firm avoids “paying up” for assets.
Green Leaf will focus on select target markets where it has significant execution experience and where market characteristics are strong.
