About

History

Capital Real Estate Partners was established in 2010 by 2 senior directors from JLL and LaSalle Investment Management. The founders, with their wide skill set range, wanted to offer a select group of clients, independent, high quality, strategically focused real estate advisory and execution services.
The Partnership has since grown to 5, with an overall team of 10. Since 2010, it has undertaken £7bn of purchases, sales and capital raisings, and has provided asset management, development management and advisory services on 10 million sq ft and 95 properties, mostly in Central London.

Approach

Focus

We focus on working with a select group of clients to provide a high value add property advisory service, primarily on London commercial assets. It is important to us that we always provide a best in class, senior level and responsive service.

Our wide ranging experience and skill set allows us to identify and deliver the most effective solution for our clients, whether it is a shorter term specific advisory/transactional role or implementing the longer term strategic business plan for an asset or portfolio.

Strength

We have strong relationships with best in class professionals across the real estate spectrum, from architects, technical specialists and contractors, to property managers, leasing agents and investment agents. When appropriate, we will recommend appointments and manage these advisers to ensure the best result for our client on each project.

We have a good balance of asset management, advisory and transactional fee revenues. The combination of this revenue balance, along with a carefully managed cost base, allows us to provide a longer term strategic perspective to our clients without the short term pressure to bill transactional fees.

Client Care

We are careful about managing our range of assignments and client base. This is to ensure that we work with clients who value our advice, so that we can minimise potential conflicts and to enable us to respect confidentiality.

Our mandates are always advisory – we have the skill set, mindset and experience to act as a principal, but our philosophy is that the control and final say on decision making remains with our clients.

Expertise

Between the 5 partners, there are 120 years of experience operating within the London real estate market, and a further 90 years within the wider team.

We seek to build long term repeat business relationships with our clients as trusted advisers.

This covers a wide range of assignments, both at Capital Real Estate Partners and in the team’s previous roles, including working within a quoted UK property company, a UK developer, an institutional investment manager and leading agency practices.

We have a strong market reputation and a high quality skill set in the following roles:

  • Portfolio and single asset strategic business planning
  • Asset management services
  • Development management services, including feasibility studies, planning, value engineering and refurbishment delivery
  • Development advisory, including development appraisals, headlease restructuring and development agreements, third party title and rights to light issues
  • Development joint ventures and fundings
  • New opportunity origination, joint ventures, investment and development sales
  • Project debt and equity capital raising

Clients

Our clients are a mixture of blue chip, UK based private clients and institutions, and public and private property companies. In addition, we advise a select number of international private investors and property companies, asset managing their existing investments and originating new holdings for them in London.

It is important to us that our clients share our values of professionalism, integrity and entrepreneurialism.
