Approach

The Lightstone Group's continued growth has been fueled by a passion to achieve excellence in every endeavor. Over the course of the firm’s history, it has acquired hundreds of projects, including numerous properties and portfolios from major national public and privately held real estate companies. While the firm’s growth has been extraordinary, the basic principles of the firm’s investment strategy have changed little since its inception in 1988. The firm seeks out undervalued properties and thoroughly evaluates the risks and rewards associated with each investment. The firm manages the asset throughout the lifecycle of the investment and develops a disposition strategy that allows it to maximize investment returns.

Consistency is Key

While the properties The Lightstone Group invests in may vary in attributes and location, the firm’s approach remains consistent. The firm seeks real estate investments that can provide:

  • Capital appreciation

  • Attractive and stable cash distributions

Lightstone's history of consistently identifying and patiently addressing the issues that adversely impact real estate valuations, coupled with decades of experience operating and improving properties, are expected to translate to satisfactory, risk adjusted returns for investors, regardless of existing market conditions.
