Visionary Partner Proven Results

We are a privately held multi-family real estate investment company that investors can rely on. Whether recognizing the potential of under-performing/under-utilized assets or undertaking new developments, we always strive for strong risk-adjusted returns regardless of the vagaries of the capital markets.

 

strategy


A mix of inspiration, foresight, and fiscal acuity defines our approach. Seeking opportunities that combine attractive growth with consistent returns, we primarily concentrate on diverse employment markets with high barriers to entry.

  • Continued Strong Growth

    The metropolitan areas between Boston, New York City, and Washington, DC are centers for technology, government, finance, healthcare, and education, creating an environment for high employment and steady population growth.

  • Reliable Demand

    The high concentration and broad range of employers in the Northeast Corridor keep demand for multi-family rental properties and significant protection from fluctuations in the economy that can affect areas dominated by single industries.

  • Constant Liquidity

    The 24/7 nature of the major cities in the Northeast Corridor, along with their maturity and global appeal, has helped maintain significant liquidity through continuous capital investment.

  • High Barriers to Entry

    Few physical sites for development, a complex regulatory climate, and the prevalence of “insider” markets characterize today’s real estate industry landscape. Our years of investment experience and network of relationships in our target markets allow us to thrive in less-than-accommodating real estate environments.

Acquisitions


Envisioning and maximizing the opportunities of under-performing properties has been the keystones of our success. Our team’s financial expertise, extensive market knowledge, and strong creative vision allow us to create value and unlock a property’s full potential.

We take advantage of opportunities through our successful value add and repositioning strategy. The result of these strategies dramatically enhances our residents' quality of life by introducing our signature Halstead brand, offering first class amenities, industry-leading designs, and hotel-level services. We create a unique lifestyle in the industry, resulting in strong demand for our properties.

After

  • Conversions

    We redevelop underutilized, underperforming, and distressed assets, delivering leading-edge communities based on renter demographics and each asset's unique attributes.

  • Repositioning

    We rebrand and reposition existing properties through aggressive markeing, leasing, and efficient operational processes at a significant discount-to-replacement cost. We focus on repositioning the asset for maximum value.

  • Transportation-Oriented Infill Projects

    We redevelop selective transportation-oriented infill projects at transit stops, commuter train stations, and highway entrances.

Asset Management


At the DSF Group, we not only understand the brick-and-mortar aspects of development, we are a seasoned fiduciary with a long track record of investment growth and success. When you invest with us, you work directly with the three founding partners throughout the entire process.

Development


While we’ve had success adding value to existing properties, we’ve done just as well developing unique and desirable properties from the ground up. From site selection and design to permitting, financial engineering, and construction, we bring our diverse experience and broad range of skills to capitalize on every facet of a project.
