Aslan Realty Group, was launched in 2001 to address a profitable market opportunity in Southern California real estate: multi-family renovation and reposition. Since that time, other investment opportunities have included distressed single-family funds, secondary market funds, multifamily investments – new construction, and our newest platform, asset-based lending.
Over the last 17 years, the Principals of Aslan have successfully invested through several market cycles. Our combined experience provides the unique perspective to identify risk-adjusted opportunities while prioritizing capital preservation. For example, during the real estate crisis that began in 2008/2009, the ACM Principals created Aslan Residential to acquire distressed single-family residential homes, including those held by several of the nation’s largest lenders and mortgage servicers. Using similar investment fundamentals as those used in multi-family acquisition, single-family homes were acquired to produce desirable risk adjusted returns. This was accomplished through strategies that produced below market acquisition opportunities and through value-add strategies that increased sale values.
As the residential housing market recovered, Aslan Lending was created to provide debt capital for other qualified operators in real estate value-add businesses. In today’s market, Aslan Lending funds provide a more stable and consistent return than traditional single-family real estate equity investments. In summary, value-add expertise, in multiple real estate investment types, creates attractive opportunities for Aslan clients during evolving market conditions and varying economic cycles.
Over time, Aslan has successfully invested through several real estate market cycles. Much of our success can be attributed to our focus on major metropolitan areas of the West Coast. Even during changing market cycles, the supply and demand dynamics of the West Coast have historically and should continue to support strong rental growth over the foreseeable future. Our combined experience provides the unique perspective to identify risk-adjusted opportunities while prioritizing capital preservation.
