What we do
Hart Realty Advisers specializes in the development, acquisition, and management of domestic private equity, core, value-added, and opportunistic real estate. The investment opportunities are tailored for corporate and public pension plans, foundations, and endowment funds matching their unique risk and diversification requirements with marketplace opportunities.
Our experience extends to all major types of commercial real estate, but we believe we offer greater retail experience than most investment managers. We have years of experience and have developed tremendous relationships through the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC), the largest retail trade organization in the United States with over 50,000 members. The founder of our company was a Trustee of ICSC for many years, which leads to many investments acquired off market. Overtime, these relationships have transferred to Hart senior staff.
We create value at various stages in the propertylife cycle:
- Through participation in opportunistic joint venture development.
- By adding value through the expansion, renovation, and repositioning of assets.
- By acquiring core and core-plus assets with limited risk.
Serving the Interest of Investors
Hart focuses on minimizing conflicts of interest and controlling fixed costs. When appropriate, we will form joint ventures with experienced developers and operators to execute complex strategies. Hart will also engage seasoned property management and leasing firms to assist in the operations and value creation of an asset.

The Value of Experience
In our view there is no substitute for the value experienced real estate professionals bring to the investment process. Experience makes outstanding professionals more effective real estate investors.
With more than twenty years of individual experience of Hart Realty Advisers' senior investment professionals, their diverse skills range from an intimate understanding of asset allocation practices and investment management to expertise in investment procurement including acquisitions/dispositions, asset management, financial reporting, and accounting.
The historical perspective of our skilled staff comes from years of investing in fluctuating market cycles. This experience has provided the disciplines necessary to exceed benchmark returns and respond swiftly to change with sound strategic decisions regardless of the economic or real estate market cycles.
Our Distinct Advantage
Our distinct advantage over other institutional investment managers is our extensive nationwide network of business relationships established over 30-plus years.
Whether developers, joint venture partners, property owners, leasing brokers, or real estate management and service companies, we seek alliances with those who are experts, reputable and highly knowledgeable in their fields.
Our professionals capitalize on this invaluable network in two key ways:
The industry acknowledges that we work in an incredibly competitive environment and an investment management firm must have points of distinction from the competition. Hart’s performance, strong communication, relationships, and respect in our industry often allows “first” or “last look” before a buyer or partner is selected.
By maintaining consistent contact with our relationships in targeted markets throughout the nation, reliable, first-hand knowledge and insight into real estate trends, local market conditions, and prospects of a particular property are gained
This critical input is crucial for astute decision making because we often isolate factors that may not appear in traditional research or due diligence.
