We wanted to create this brand in order to help position it appropriately in the minds of our clients and investors.
Portland, OR (PRWEB) February 16, 2017
Fairway America (“Fairway”) announced today the formal spinoff of its boutique real estate asset-based fund administration practice, which will become Redwood Real Estate Administration, LLC (“Redwood”) beginning March 1. This independent entity expects to carry forward the high standards and custom service Fairway’s fund administration division has become known for amongst existing Small Balance Real Estate (“SBRE”) clients.
“We feel strongly that the time has arrived for our fund administration services unit to function as its own business”, said Matt Burk, Fairway and Redwood’s CEO. “We want to build upon the reputation we have earned among a growing community of SBRE entrepreneurs and clients, but allow the company to develop its own identity as it grows.”
Having helped to set up more than 100 SBRE funds around the country, Fairway’s (and now Redwood’s) back end real estate fund and syndication accounting and administration services have become very important to many of those clients. “Many of our SBRE entrepreneur clients would not have attempted to launch their fund in the first place without knowing we had our administration services available”, said Burk. “These services are completely different than the advisory and investment businesses, though, and deserve their own separate brand. We wanted to create this brand in order to help position it appropriately in the minds of our clients and investors.”
Since 2014 when the first iteration of fund administration services was launched as a key element to the evolving Fairway America business model, the number of clients and total assets under administration (“AUA”) has increased each year. “Our growth can be attributed to two main factors”, said Erica England, Redwood’s Director of Fund Administration. “First, we understand this space deeply and can support our clients in ways most other administration firms are just not calibrated to do. Secondly, we earned our existing business organically by providing everything an SBRE entrepreneur needs to be successful. We are looking forward to doing even more to provide this depth of knowledge and support to Redwood clients.”
In combination with Fairway’s brand as well as its online portal and marketplace, SBREfunds.com, Redwood has also benefitted from a growing community of small balance real estate entrepreneurs and high net worth investors. It provides administration services for all types of SBRE asset-based fund and syndication models including mortgage pool funds, single family fix and flip funds, value add closed ended property funds, discounted and distressed note funds, and many others. In addition to other leading and emerging funds around the United States in the SBRE space, Redwood will provide fund administration services to Fairway America Fund VI, LLC and Fairway America Fund VII, LP. The new venture will operate as an independent entity while embodying the same core values as Fairway America, LLC. The firm operates out of its headquarter offices in Portland OR.
