It enjoys strong demographics and a diverse employment base that contribute to its position as an award winning community. Our family of investors realized phenomenal overall returns as a result of organic and in place rent growth and following this exit, we will continue our pursuit of new value-added investment opportunities from our deep nationwide sourcing network,” said Bruce. “Our competitive advantage is proprietary deal flow and we are actively seeking similar opportunities.”
