Family Office Real Estate Advisors

Real estate advisory services supporting family offices and high net worth investors.
Professional advice with confidentiality and integrity, since 1984.

StoneCreek Partners acts as a family office real estate advisors, working directly with family office representatives as well as with representative attorneys and accountants.   Our family office consultancy includes high net worth investors including performing artists.  Because of our additional entertainment industry experience, we also get involved supporting clients having brand management and licensing issues.

 

Real Estate Acquisitions Due Diligence

 

Our firm’s expertise as family office real estate advisors begins with real estate investment due diligence, whether land or property acquisitions, joint ventures, or limited partnership interests.   We have managed the outsourced acquisition screening and initial investment suitability assessments, for family offices and other investors that wish to streamline their in-house operations and place acquisitions with an outside expert.  Our expertise spans commercial real estate, hotels and resorts, and location-based entertainment.

 

We have also been involved in major master-planned community acquisition, planning, and development, such as the Banning-Lewis Ranch (described below).

 

Family Office real estate advisors

While helming the family office real estate portfolio of Newfield Enterprises International, our firm’s co-founder advised the acquisition of Banning-Lewis Ranch from the Resolution Trust Corp. NEI acquired the 21,400-acre ranch for $18.5 million which the Saudi family resold after a short hold for $55 million. Developer Frank Aries had originally acquired the ranch for $92 million from Mobile Land but ultimately defaulted on loan payments.

 

Property Dispositions

 

We also handle discrete asset dispositions, sometimes directly arranging for the acquiring third-party.   We recently arranged for the acquisition of a major Coastal California landholding by a sovereign wealth fund for a closely-held family enterprise interested in the sale of the asset.

 

Real Estate Asset Management

 

From a real estate asset management standpoint, we take either the asset management role “managing the managers,” or, we take the direct property (or facilities) management role.  We taken on the role of development project managers, from feasibility and design, through construction and pre-opening matters.   Our Managing Director was a co-founded of the Hotel Asset Manager’s Association, participating in the early days of that organization when a half-dozen Ritz-Carlton Hotel asset managers got together as a means to discuss luxury hotel operating issues.

 

In all of work we are pleased to consult in limited matters, to provide advice on a particular subject.   We are also available to act as the responsible owner’s rep for a matter, handling acquisitions, dispositions, and negotiations of deals on behalf of the family office.   We certainly enjoy taking the lead when asked.

 

We are not registered investment advisors.   StoneCreek Partners is a real estate consultancy that’s been in operation since 1984 and through predecessor companies some years before that.   From time to time, our co-founder has taken leaves of absence to take a leadership role in turning around a family asset with real estate workout issues, and, with NBCUniversal’s Parks and Resorts group where he was asked to lead a location-based entertainment in the early days of that industry.

 

Personal Service, Always Discrete

 

We are accustomed to the extended services and availability that such clients require from time to time.

Our Background in Managing Family Office Real Estate Portfolios

Much of our work as family office real estate advisors is fully confidential, at the request of our clients.   Our clients include those based in the U.S. and Canada, as well as in Saudi Arabia, the PRC, Japan, Germany, and Mexico.

 

With the requirement of confidentiality noted, we can share that our experience with family offices included our co-founder’s five years helming the real estate and hotels porftolio of Newfield Enterprises International (NEI).  NEI was the established family office for  the Ibrahim brothers or Riyadh and Jeddah, respectively.   The office was beneficially owned by HES’ Abdulaziz, Khaled, and Waleed bin Ibrahim Al Ibrahim.

 

NEI was eventually dissolved and its assets placed in several separate entities for each of the brothers.  The dissolution of NEI could occur following our co-founder’s leading the development of some of the portfolio real estate and hotels, and more importantly, achieving real estate workouts for some of the large prior investments made in trophy properties during a high-flying real estate cycle.   The portfolio include real estate in ten U.S. states, as well as offshore assets in Paris, London, Morocco, and Cairo.

 

Strategic planning is part of our company’s heritage and the career of  J.H. Bredberg, chairman emeritus for StoneCreek Partners and Adventure Entertainment Cos.   Back in the 1970’s and 80’s, Bredberg was a licensed professional engineer by training, and was among the pioneers of “smart technologies” integration with industrial machinery controls worldwide.  Over the course of a four-decade career he acted as chief engineer, helmed strategic planning units, and consulted with such legendary industrial conglomerates as Texas Instruments, Harnischfeger Corporation, the Allen-Bradley Cos. (one of Tiny’s Corporate Raiders), and Allis-Chalmers.   He was an early specialist in agile/scrum project management methods.

 

Donald Bredberg, who currently leads StoneCreek Partners, has a similar background in strategic planning at one time leading financial strategic planning for one of the largest real estate organization in the U.S., among other experience.
