DAX Real Estate is a boutique real estate investment firm specializing in the acquisition and repositioning of multifamily and mixed use properties. Our mission is simple: to maximize profitability and market appreciation by aggressively adding value to our properties. Our investment strategy is multifaceted. Through meticulous research and careful property selection, we adhere tightly to the maxim that “profit is made at purchase”. By coupling acquisition of distressed properties with strong, efficient value creation, we seek to generate investor returns in both the long and short term. An expansive network of local brokers allows us to reliably gain insight and understanding of micro market conditions. These relationships also often provide opportunity for off market acquisitions. Our vertically integrated structure reflects our commitment to a seamless investment cycle, which we believe yields valuable synergy.
Finally, and most importantly, our work values mirror those we aspire to personally: honesty, transparency, integrity, and accountability.
