Headquartered in Los Angeles, California, Regent Properties was established in 1989. Over the past 29 successful years, Regent has evolved from the real estate arm of the Kohl family office to a multi-faceted real estate investment management platform. The current principals of Regent have a collective 65 years working collaboratively together at the Company. Regent and its principals have acquired, developed, financed and/or managed over $3 billion in real estate transactions nationally, encompassing more than 22 million square feet of retail, commercial, residential and mixed-use projects and 13,000 acres of master planned communities representing 31,000 lots. Regent’s assets under management total greater than $1 billion.
For twenty-nine years, Regent has been successful at identifying and implementing a broad spectrum of entrepreneurial real estate transactions. With each investment and development, the firm is committed to fostering honest and straightforward partnerships; maintaining long-term tenant, brokerage, lender, buyer, seller and governmental relationships; introducing innovative development strategies; and demonstrating operational excellence in design, leasing, financing, construction and management.
Regent’s approach has always been to find an edge on the buy, or to buy what others are not – typically in a contrarian and/or countercyclical strategy. This involves investing in and developing a variety of different products depending on what opportunities present themselves, and the condition of the market at any given point in time. As Regent’s track record demonstrates, for 28 years, Regent’s principals have been able to adjust successfully and continually to the ever-changing real estate market.
The driving philosophy behind all of our investments is our willingness to pursue contrarian, out-of-favor, complex or distressed assets. We have the skills, experience, relationships and resources to invest in these typically challenging situations- and we enjoy it.
