local insight

Belay partners with operators that have a keen understanding of the impact that changing real estate demand drivers have on their submarkets and properties. This insight helps uncover intrinsic value, appropriately price risk, and execute value enhancement strategies.

We identify best-in-class operators based on their strengths and experience, forming long-term programmatic relationships to access the targeted strategy.

does not fit all

We believe in custom-tailored solutions. Belay is flexible and entrepreneurial, tailoring investment structures to meet the objectives of both our clients and operating partners. This includes structures such as programmatic joint ventures (“PJV’s”), joint ventures (“JV’s”), co-GP investments, and operating company investments. In all cases, we seek to create mutually beneficial structures that foster long-term partnerships.
