Since its beginnings in 1999, the firm has acquired more than $1.34 billion in asset value and more than 11.1 million square feet throughout the Southeast. In recent years, the firm shed many of the non-strategic assets and concentrated the majority of acquisitions on Class-A office buildings, primarily in the Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville, Tampa and Raleigh-Durham metros. In the process, the firm established itself as a high-quality investor and operator of opportunistic and value added, middle-market ($15MM-$100MM) office assets.
“The key to the firm’s success is execution.”
Chairman & CEO
The Dilweg Companies employs a consistent value-added investment strategy. Utilizing a disciplined approach to identify market inefficiencies, the firm acquires high-quality operating assets at a material discount to replacement cost. The Dilweg Companies then nurtures these assets back to a position of strength and disposes of them, generating exceptional returns for its investment partners. The firm’s investment strategy easily adapts to the constantly changing market conditions, but is rooted in the fundamentals of risk mitigation and cash flow management.
To develop and acquire properties, The Dilweg Companies sources equity funds from institutions and private investors. The firm is flexible in structuring partnerships and works to align itself with the needs of its investors.
Working closely with our senior management team, the firm’s Asset Enhancement Managers provide superior oversight of investment properties and protect the long-term value of investors’ capital, by managing (i) capital improvement requirements; (ii) marketing and re-branding plans; (iii) tenant leasing objectives; (iv) asset repositioning requirements; and (v) expense controls for improving operating margins.
The firm’s Property Managers oversee the day-to-day operations of assets in the portfolio and help to execute the long-term strategic plan developed by the Asset Enhancement Manager.
Brokerage & Leasing
The firm’s Brokers acquire, lease and sell investment properties within the portfolio. They engage on a daily basis with the tenants, sellers, and owners. They are intimate with the trends and market movements which ultimately create the investment opportunities.
The firm’s Construction Managers coordinate completion of tenant improvement projects as well as general building enhancements. Providing close supervision and cost control, the Construction Managers ensure that all projects are completed on time and as budgeted.
Tax & Accounting
The firm’s Tax & Accounting Team assures accurate record-keeping and reporting on the portfolio assets. Additionally, they provide key support on firm-related financial issues. Accurate and insightful financial information is required to maintain profitability and to capitalize on new opportunities.
