Our Responsibility

Our values guide us in our efforts to be good corporate citizens and responsible stewards for the investors who have entrusted us with their capital.

The ABR Difference

Delivering Value Through Innovation and Discipline

Investor Alignment

Since 1972, we have been highly committed to maintaining strong alignment with our investors, while providing ongoing support to our operating partners across the United States.

Unconstrained Access

We provide investors and operating partners access to the broadest opportunities in the real estate middle market, an $11 trillion market that generates roughly 85% of all real estate transactions annually.

Robust Deal Flow

We leverage our network of more than 100 operating partners to source investment opportunities in selective, often off-market, real estate transactions with above average return potential.

Disciplined Risk Management

Regardless of market conditions, we follow a consistent, repeatable, time-tested investment approach to sourcing, underwriting, and managing real-estate investments in pursuit of strong, risk-adjusted returns.

Focused, Granular Approach

Our experience over multiple real estate cycles combined with our rationally-sized investment approach allows our clients to invest in opportunities across the middle market, which larger funds may be unable to efficiently access.

Committed Stewardship

As a humble steward of our clients’ capital we are committed to delivering strong returns. As a community leader, we embrace environmental, social and governance principles to positively impact our communities.

“ABR is focused exclusively on the highly-inefficient middle market where the vast majority of real estate transactions take place.”

Edward P. Nordberg, Jr.
Senior Managing Director

“ABR’s focus on the middle market provides our investors with excellent opportunities to diversify their holdings.”

Tom Burton

The ABR Advantage

Broad Network of Strategic Alliances

ABR invests across a wide spectrum of U.S. commercial real estate, both directly and through joint ventures established with local real estate developers and operators. These partners possess expertise in their local real estate markets and property types, and provide strong organizational and entrepreneurial skills at the property level. By making its investments both directly and through these relationships, ABR is able to create excellent portfolio diversification while investing in a focused number of property types in a wide variety of geographic markets.
