Investment Expertise at Every Level Is Our Strength

Experience counts in any business, but particularly when you’re entrusted with creating discernable value for others.

At Penwood, our principals average more than 25 years of comprehensive real estate investment management experience. They are skilled in all aspects of real estate investment management, including client service; strategy formulation; acquisition; sourcing, analysis, and due diligence; implementation of the value creation process; leasing and disposition. They are experts in controlling, managing, and minimizing investment risk. And they’ve led their clients through diverse market conditions.

Penwood also has a deep and talented group of professionals that support our investment activities—experienced specialists in accounting and financial reporting, regulatory and legal compliance, real estate law, acquisitions, and asset management.

Taken together, the Penwood team has the skills to make sound, strategic decisions that maximize value in any market environment.
