Because real estate matters. It impacts our lives on all levels. It forms the backdrop for all of the moments in our lives – it is where we live, where we work, where we shop, where we eat, where we provide services to our communities, where we meet, where we heal, and where we educate future generations.
When we invest in real estate, we are investing in the community where it is located and making an investment in the future. Getting it right matters – it matters to the members of the community where it is located, it matters to the investors who rely on the results for their retirement benefits, and it matters to the people who occupy it.
The building will continue to be there long after the first round of ‘grand opening’ banners are taken down. Through the decades, the community will look to it to continue to be a good citizen, occupants will look to it to serve their needs in a sustainable manner, and its investors will look to it to provide returns that support their goals.
