INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY

INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY

We are an opportunity-focused investor, meaning we are not restricted by geography and can be more flexible in product type. Our expertise is predominately in opportunistic, value-add, and new development opportunities in the industrial, digital infrastructure, senior living, self-storage, office, and retail asset classes.

Our primary market (60% of our current assets) is in the largest and most inefficient segment of the commercial real estate industry, the lower middle market, where the opportunities are typically between $5,000,000 to $50,000,000. These opportunities are characterized by often being too small to interest large institutional investors and too large for local investors to complete. For opportunities above $50,000,000 we often partner with institutional investors and currently have 5 institutional partners participating in +/-$900,000,000 of our assets.

Our opportunity-focused, flexible investment strategy enables us to capitalize on changing economic conditions and allows us to execute on inefficiencies across the United States.  In addition to developing high quality assets, we seek to acquire opportunistic, value-add, and stabilized income-generating U.S. commercial real estate across key property types, including industrial, digital infrastructure, healthcare, office and retail. We aim to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns for our shareholders and investors while striving to mitigate downside risk. We seek to enhance the value of our portfolio through our proven asset management and operational expertise.

“As a tenant and small business owner in over 15 office building locations across the Denver Metro area, I have worked with numerous property management companies. NorthStar Commercial Partners are clearly leaders and innovators in their industry. I truly appreciate the commitment to their tenants, buildings, grounds and amenities. NorthStar Commercial Partners is proactive, reliable, knowledgeable and integrated into the community. Doing business with NorthStar Commercial Partners is being a part of something bigger.”

“Several months ago we took over ownership of a struggling franchise in Colorado Springs. As we looked at the business and project, it was clear that rent could be the largest hurdle for both financial and legal reasons. As we went into this project, we were warned by a friend that the landlord’s would be our biggest obstacle. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Nick has been responsive and professional throughout this process, but even more, he truly seems to care and try to make this project work for us. We have felt that he has always been working with us to help us succeed, and has been an exceptional representative for property management.”

“I am writing this letter of appreciation for the way that Northstar has served as a landlord for our church. When we moved to the building, we were looking to save money and be in a community where we could do the most good. We were not aware of the instability of the Master-Tenant that was working with the bank at the time. When they were evicted from non-payment among other things we wondered what was going to happen to us. Because it is so difficult to move an entire ministry at a moments notice, it was going to be very stressful and challenging. I talked to a representative from Northstar by the name of Nick who showed compassion and genuine concern for our situation. Northstar not only allowed us to continue to have our church here, they gave us an opportunity to manage the entire building. It is very inspiring to meet and work with an organization that cares about their tenants and really goes above and beyond to try and make them more successful. When I met with the officers from Northstar to discuss the opportunity, I was impressed with the transparency and genuineness of them. I am looking for a lasting relationship with Northstar, and I am hopeful that greater opportunities will develop. I thank God everyday for allowing our church to cross paths with such an outstanding organization.”

Senior Pastor, House of Hope Christian Ministries

“Martinson Services has been in business since 1986. In these 31 years, we have worked with countless numbers of companies and have recognized a few key traits associated with successful property management teams. Traits such as, honesty, integrity, hard work, accessibility , and attention to detail are baseline items that most property management teams exhibit to sell themselves and to stay in business. Northstar exemplifies all of these characteristics, but to us, this isn’t what makes them special. In our opinion, smart managers with GREAT communication are the ones that stand alone.

When problems arise, which is common in our line of work – snow storms, the intelligent and battle tested managers communicate concerns, listen, and are helpful with a solution to whatever the issue may be. While some managers use a phone or email to voice displeasure, the Northstar team excels at efficient and positive communication.

Several years ago now, my first interaction with Northstar Commercial Partners was an on-site property walk with Patricia Watson. It became immediately clear that this firm was different from the others. Brian and Patricia Watson were quite the team back then and I can tell you today that they still are. Their company has grown a great deal over the years, but you still see those core values reflected in all of their property managers and teams that have been built as a result of their growth.

This is what makes them great in my opinion.”
