We recognized the challenges facing small balance real estate (SBRE) entrepreneurs and our rapid growth is a testament to the need for the services we provide.
PORTLAND, Ore. (PRWEB) September 11, 2018
Redwood Real Estate Fund Administration (redwoodrea.com) (“Redwood”) recently announced it now administers over $1 billion in assets. This significant milestone highlights the company’s rapid growth in a traditionally underserved part of the market. Redwood focuses exclusively on Small Balance Real Estate (SBRE), also known as sub-institutional real estate, delivering full cycle accounting services to fund managers and real estate entrepreneurs across the country.
“We are excited to have achieved this important landmark,” said John Wilson, Redwood’s acting President. “We recognized the challenges facing SBRE entrepreneurs and our rapid growth is a testament to the need for the services we provide. Clients with smaller AUM often do not have a good alternative for professional yet affordable third-party administration,” said Wilson. “Our team takes seriously our responsibility to provide high quality service to our clients and our business has grown along with theirs. We look forward to continuing to support our clients’ growth and building new relationships that will take us to the next billion dollars in AUA.”
Recognizing how underserved the SBRE community is when it comes to fund administration (accounting and finance services), Redwood began as an internal division of its parent company, Fairway America (fairwayamerica.com) in late 2013. Fairway’s fund administration practice had grown to nearly $350 million in AUA by the beginning of 2017 at which time it was spun off into a separate operating entity named Redwood Real Estate Administration. By the beginning of 2018, Redwood’s AUA had grown to approximately $750 million and the firm now administers over $1billion.
“We take great pride and responsibility in our duty to our clients and to their investors to provide timely financial statements, investor allocations, and underlying calculations,” said Erica England, Redwood’s Chief Accounting Officer. “We believe this allows our clients to do what they love and what they do best - focus on real estate – and enable their investors to be assured that their investment is being accounted for by a professional third party.”
“Redwood has a dedicated team of professionals who truly care about their clients,” said Matt Burk, CEO of Fairway America. “I’m really proud of what the Redwood team has accomplished since breaking away from Fairway almost two years ago.”
