The GID Acquisition Group seeks investment opportunities nationwide and focuses on the acquisition of Class A multifamily and mixed-use residential assets in select high barrier-to-entry markets. We form partnerships with real estate developers to develop, own and operate premier properties throughout the United States.  Since 2010, we’ve purchased approximately $3.8 billion in multifamily assets and have participated in 24 joint venture “build-to-core” projects with 15 different real estate development partners.  We are known for having significant access to capital, the ability to execute transactions quickly, and the capacity and expertise to execute multiple transactions simultaneously.

Over five decades we’ve fostered a network of strong relationships with the nation’s leading brokers, lenders and institutional owners who are vital to transaction sourcing. Our disciplined, research-driven investment strategy focuses on acquiring assets in markets where the fundamental performance drivers indicate that above average returns can be achieved.  Multiple acquisition teams and market research professionals provide coverage of the Eastern, Central, and Western regions of the United States, allowing us to react quickly to market opportunities and leverage significant local knowledge and prior market history for every major real estate market in the nation.  Our detailed due diligence process utilizes the full resources of GID’s vertically-integrated business model, including Property Management, Portfolio Management, Research, Development, Legal, Treasury, MIS and Accounting  professionals.

The Acquisition Group is a critical driver in producing strong returns. Our long-standing market relationships, ability to underwrite diverse operating scenarios, access to capital and long history of performance make us a competitive and well-respected investor on behalf of GID’s investment funds.
