As the largest segment of the US economy, the healthcare sector offers an array of investment opportunities resulting from the challenges related to our aging population and the evolving solutions created to respond to those challenges. Our highly-experienced specialists work with owner/operators, investors and developers of independent living facilities, assisted living facilities, skilled nursing facilities, continuing care retirement communities, and dementia facilities to ensure their real estate is aligned with strategic, operational and financial goals and to maximize returns.

Our professionals have the expertise, sector knowledge and the relationships to achieve the best outcome through all business, political and reimbursement cycles. We believe that “Execution starts with relationships and closes with capital.”

Our Services: Comprehensive, Analytical, Sophisticated

Strategic Planning

We listen to our clients’ objectives and formulate a strategy, taking into consideration the economic cycle and the current capital markets including the availability and pricing of debt, equity, buyers and sellers.

Debt Financing

We customize a plan of financing and solicit proposals from our extensive group of lender relationships. We negotiate on your behalf, securing the best competitive terms, and assist in closing the transaction. We represent all types of financings including balance sheet lenders, mortgage conduit originators and Fannie and Freddie correspondents, and will provide recommendations on the structure that best fits your needs.

Equity Capital/Joint Ventures

We present our client’s company and financial proposal to qualified investors throughout the country. Those placements may take various forms, including a direct equity investment in the company, the creation of an investment in a fund or real estate pool or mezzanine investments as part of a structured finance execution.

Investment Sales / Brokerage

We analyze properties and portfolios, create a compelling investment thesis and sales package, aggressively market the assets, and work to achieve a successful transaction conclusion.


We assist our clients and their current lenders and investors in assessing value and finding a financial structure that will meet the goals of our client’s investors and allow continuity of operation and ownership. A recapitalization structure, including both debt and equity capital raises, is among the structures we can arrange.

Broker Opinion of Value

We evaluate the particular assets and their market position, offer creative insights and provide the tools needed to consider all of options - sale, refinance, or recapitalization - in determining the best execution strategy.
