American Landmark Properties is a real estate investment group with a 30-year track record of delivering consistently strong returns to its investors. Over the past 20 years, we have purchased over 15 million square feet of commercial real estate and financed or refinanced these properties for a combined $2.6 billion in real estate loans.
What separates us from other firms is our strategic acquisition, development and management capabilities, which leverage our combined 100-plus years of commercial real estate experience.
Our skills and expertise includes syndication, financing, leasing, sales and marketing, repositioning, renovation property/asset management and disposition.
Our strategic acquisition philosophy is to seek and acquire value-add and opportunistic mid-cap office, industrial and multi-family properties in the Midwest and East Coast. Our management structure is streamlined to allow timely decision-making. When unique opportunities are presented, we act!
Our opportunistic platform employs a straightforward investment strategy. We seek to acquire high-quality, well-located assets, address any property or business issues through aggressive asset management, and sell or refinance the assets once our objectives are accomplished.
Our long-term value proposition relies on our strong local market knowledge and proven ability to identify and acquire undervalued assets.
We deliver to our investors consistently strong investment returns — 26.4%* average realized IRR over 30 years compared to the NAREIT U.S. Index of 13.37% and the S&P 500 Index of 6.14% since 2000. Since 1986, our principals have committed $25 million to American Landmark Properties investments. Investing our own capital alongside our investors' ensures that our interests are one and the same.

Our entrepreneurial team of commercial real estate experts is hands-on. And because we are directly and proactively involved in the acquisition, financing, operation and marketing of all of our properties, our investments outperform the competition.
With an average of more than 10 years’ experience, our professional property managers are highly trained in both the financial and physical characteristics of each asset. Our property managers do not simply address immediate needs, but act independently as each property's CEO, proactively seeking ways to enhance the property’s value.
Most of our investor clients have been with us for over two decades. As their investments have grown in size, we’ve grown with them, proactively adding people and resources while ensuring that critical account staff support remains consistent.
The value of a property is inseparable from how efficiently that property is managed. That’s why we manage our investments as if it were our own money. In fact, we have co-invested $25 million since 1986 in our properties.
Upon each property acquisition, we review/audit all operating costs and typically rebid all energy, maintenance and service contracts, typically reducing controllable expenses and immediately creating long-term value.
Our team continually searches for cost savings to reduce operating expenses without sacrificing tenant service.
