A trusted advisor for your real estate investment portfolio

How do I define my real estate investment objectives and assess my risk tolerance? What kind of real estate should I invest in? How do I manage my real estate investment portfolio for optimal returns?

These questions about investing in commercial real estate and managing a real estate asset or portfolio, while common, depend on many economic and personal factors. The answers are complex, which is why many investors engage a dedicated real estate asset manager like Plante Moran Real Estate Investment Advisors (REIA) as an integral part of their investment team. We work with you to determine the allocation of your real estate investment within your larger investment portfolio, choose which types of real estate to invest in, and provide ongoing management of your real estate assets to mitigate risk and optimize returns.

The advice we offer is based on proven real estate expertise, extensive market knowledge, broad resources, and a disciplined process — it is not based on the fees on a transaction. Our goal is to help you make informed decisions about when to sell, renovate, reposition, or recapitalize to optimize returns and enhance long-term value at both the asset and portfolio level.
