About us

Transparent institutional real estate, tailored to you

USREM was founded by a team of real estate and securities experts with one shared goal: to make direct institutional investment in commercial real estate as simple, flexible and transparent as possible.

Mission

Our core mission is what drives us every day, and what separates us from other investment platforms.

 

The US Real Estate Market (USREM) transforms large, stabilized assets into professionally managed single asset REITs, providing investors like you with direct equity exposure to cash-flowing properties across sectors and geographies. Your shares of these REITs will be fully tradable, allowing you to adjust or exit your positions to meet liquidity needs or respond to market opportunities.

This platform is designed so you can build custom real estate portfolios according to your particular needs — combining many of the benefits of direct investing with the standardization and convenience of a fund — and all within a competitively-priced administrative structure.

USREM is building the infrastructure to realize greater efficiencies in real estate transactions, increase opportunities for mid-tier institutions to access commercial real estate, and promote market liquidity.

By offering an institutional platform for liquid trading and settlement of real estate transactions, USREM seeks to unlock a new asset class for passive investment, bringing new and efficient ways for you to access the economic benefits of real estate.

Values

The code of conduct we live by every day to deliver our promise to do the best for you.

Professionalism

Like you we’re in this for the long haul, so we act accordingly. When you deal with USREM you deal with a friendly, expert team who are passionate about delivering the best service possible.

Diversity

Diversity is more than just a word to us. It’s an integral part of the way we work, from challenging outdated perspectives to hiring the experts that make our team what it is.

Integrity

We’ll never put our integrity or relationship with you at stake to get ahead. Our founders have been in the business for generations and USREM endures because of their total commitment to transparency and fair dealings.
