The Company has a proven track record of creating value for its equity investors through value-add repositioning, rehabilitation, and professional management expertise.
Morgan adds, “We intend to continue growing by acquiring class B, multifamily assets in infill, high-barrier markets where our operational expertise can quickly add value for our investors and residents. We have the capital to move quickly to acquire sizable multifamily portfolios in major MSAs nationwide.”
