Open Architecture Commercial Real Estate Investment Platform

Realized offers a vetted lineup of non-proprietary real estate investment options from over 40 top Delaware Statutory Trust (DST) and Qualified Opportunity Fund (QOF) sponsors.

Our comprehensive due diligence process includes evaluation of the sponsor, underlying real estate and investment structure of each offering. In addition to our in-house financial intelligence and analytics tools, our research team utilizes neutral third-party data to stress test performance across scenarios.



Goals-Based Portfolios

The Realized goals-based portfolios are designed to help meet a variety of investor objectives and are built on top of a diverse stable of commercial real estate sponsor partnerships.

Comprised of underlying commercial real estate investment securities from a variety of sponsors, these portfolios are designed to help meet investor goals while aiming to provide diversification2 across a variety of property types and locations.

To suggest all real estate is alike would be as wrong as suggesting all equities are alike.

Utilizing a manager-of-managers framework, the Realized goals-based portfolios leverage our comprehensive due diligence process and extensive commercial real estate sponsor evaluation experience.

Our goals-based portfolios help you to efficiently scale your service offering, enhance client relationships and provide a level of diversification that may be difficult to obtain with traditional real estate investing approaches.


Collaborative Portfolio Construction

By applying modern portfolio theory to real estate investments, our goal is to enable you to offer the same level of sophisticated wealth management to your client’s real estate assets as you do the traditional assets within their portfolios.

Our proprietary technology statistically quantifies risk and return and considers client-specific tax situations.

We’ll work with you to understand your client’s unique situation, goals, priorities, and risk tolerance and help determine if a designing a customized investment mix, or utilizing one of our goals-based portfolios best suits their needs.



Portfolio Management for 1031 Exchanges

Performance Reporting

We track performance against sponsor projections and market performance. Variance reports are generated at property, investment, and portfolio levels. Investor and advisor portals provide transparency and convenient access to data.

Ongoing Valuation

In partnership with a Big 4 accounting firm, we provide quarterly NAV reporting for DST holdings, offering additional transparency.

Estate Planning & Wealth Transfer

Utilizing fractional real estate investments offers significant estate planning benefits. Unlike individual properties, fractional interests can be distributed equally among heirs, helping to mitigate potential disputes.

Interest may be passed to an heir at a stepped-up basis to the fair market value at the time of the original owner’s death. If the new owner chooses to sell, no capital gains tax or depreciation capture will occur.



The Realized Difference

When you choose to work with us, you gain direct access to our experienced team of commercial real estate investment professionals who have completed over 600 successful 1031 exchanges and Qualified Opportunity Zone transactions.3

Our flexible client engagement model enables you to determine how much direct involvement we have with your clients. We can be client facing, or act as a behind-the-scenes partner providing the level of support you desire.

Differentiate Your Practice

By helping investors defer large capital gains obligations, you can offer a strategy may not be presented by many other advisors. This may help you stand out in a crowded market while helping to attract and retain high-net-worth clients.

Increase Wallet Share

For many high-net-worth families, investment real estate holdings comprise a significant portion of their wealth. Unlocking wealth trapped in investment properties can bring assets currently outside your purview under advisement. 

1. Not all assets are eligible for capital gains in all circumstances. Consult a tax professional.

2. Diversification does not guarantee a profit or protect against loss in a declining market. It is a method used to help manage investment risk.
