Strategic Real Estate InvestmentsDavenport Group
Creating value across the Greater DC Real Estate Market

Davenport Group is focused on creating value through relationship-driven real estate investments in the Greater Washington DC area. Our thoughtful approach to each real estate opportunity focuses on value, optionality and mission critical criteria for our end users and occupiers.

Our team is led by finance, construction, and technology executives with decades of experience, enabling us to efficiently identify and evaluate the most compelling opportunities.

  • PERSISTENCE: In identifying and stabilizing new opportunities
  • PATIENCE: In our underwriting and deal structuring
  • ALIGNMENT: With our investors and every stakeholder throughout the deal process
Patient & Aligned CapitalOpportunistic Investments

Davenport acquires value-add and opportunistic real estate in and around the DC Metro area. Our process typically involves either repositioning an asset to a higher and better use, identifying operating or leasing inefficiencies, or entitling new ground-up developments. By balancing effort and return, our diversified investments model leans on a select group of capital partners, each with different goals. By thoughtfully aligning each deal with the right capital, we can offer the flexibility needed to execute on opportunities, and accommodate a seller’s needs, especially when timing is a key concern. Our key asset focus are industrial, multifamily, retail, and office.

Quickly Assess Costs UpfrontConstruction Management

In-house construction management expertise enables us to focus on design and cost during the initial feasibility studies through entitlement and final design as well as protecting our interests during and after delivery. Many of our peers who focus on value-add and opportunistic real estate undervalue the importance of focusing on the hard cost side of a deal. Controlling these costs is just as important to us as “buying it right”.

Strategic ConnectionsTeam Sourcing

Each real estate deal has a different story. Some take years to cultivate and close, and others need immediate attention. Davenport carefully tracks each opportunity and thoughtfully curates the best team members for each specific deal. Understanding the pulse of the market is not enough, the right players and partners are also essential in creating value and executing efficiently.

Proprietary Tech & Data Platform

We have built a proprietary, internal deal sourcing platform that leverages our local relationships and market intelligence to accelerate deal evaluation, understand competition and help guide thoughtful areas of focus. We believe that access to data is important, but access to relevant and insightful data is essential in differentiating ourselves from our peers.
