Tailored Approach. Reliable Results.
The FORE Development + Investment Approach
Our focus on design, cost, and construction has proven to be mutually beneficial. Our clients are provided with the most efficient and useful space possible and we become owners of a quality building on great real estate.
The FORE team focuses on working with industry leading architects, engineers and general contractors; providing representation and guidance for our clients during the site selection, due diligence, site planning, and budgeting stages. FORE will competitively bid the project with a general contractor to ensure our sub-contractors are skilled and qualified to complete the project on time and on budget.
Our investment approach is simple. Our focus is to acquire quality real estate in small to mid-tier markets. We aim to create a diversified portfolio of free standing commercial properties with credit tenants and long-term leases. Lastly, we view each project independently which allows us to be creative and flexible when it comes to debt and equity financing.
