ELV Associates, Inc. is a privately held real estate investment and management firm established in 1990 to represent high net-worth investors in connection with direct investments in United States commercial properties. Our firm has established high quality property portfolios in three US regions – New England, the Mid-Atlantic and the Southeast – offering investors geographic and product diversification and exceptional returns through income and appreciation common to real estate investments. To date, we have completed acquisition and development transactions representing over $1.8 billion in market value. Fundamental to all of our investments is property of high intrinsic value where inefficiencies are exploited and value is enhanced through our hands-on teams in Boston, Massachusetts, Washington, DC and Atlanta, Georgia.
ELV Associates, on behalf of its investors, is engaged in acquiring and developing high quality, well-located commercial properties in the Eastern United States and actively managing the assets to produce consistent cash flow and long term capital appreciation. Capital preservation is paramount to all investments, demanding sensitivity to quality and pricing. The firm is primarily focused on middle-market commercial properties with a typical transaction size of $30 million to $200 million. Our investment strategy emphasizes a balanced portfolio approach which diversifies its activities between (i) core-plus assets, (ii) value-added assets consisting of immediate income and near-term value enhancement (typically through re-tenanting, repositioning and renovation), and (iii) selective development opportunities offering higher risk/return characteristics. In all cases value is created through the active management of ELV personnel.
