Investment Philosophy

West77 Partners seeks well-located real estate assets with high barriers to entry where value can be added via our operational expertise and capitalization proficiency. Examining a transaction as an operator allows us to home in on aspects of the investment that are core to its operational success. Since the ultimate sale of any asset is difficult to predict, we interest ourselves more in the annual cash flow a property produces. We strongly believe there is a time to develop, a time to acquire, and a time to hold. The services West77 Partners provides are driven by our desire to prudently invest, and not the other way around.

As real estate markets cycle so too should our investment approaches. When the economy is expanding rapidly, capitalization rates are compressing, and consumer demand intensifies, development-related investments typically present better yields for our investors. Alternatively, when economies soften, capitalization rates increase, and consumer confidence wanes, acquisition opportunities abound in the face of investment panic. Although seemingly counter-intuitive, there are also times when we should simply do nothing except continue to manage our portfolio for better yields. Knowing when to acquire, develop or hold is what distinguishes West77 Partners from most real estate firms.


West77 Partners is always seeking bright professionals who share common goals avnd values with the company. As a mantra, we believe you must have “the right people on the bus” in order to achieve success as a company.

Our people are our most valuable assets. Therefore, we are constantly looking for the industry’s most talented people to join us. Qualified applicants should submit a resume to careers@west77partners.com
