Guardian focuses on local markets where the Principals have over 68 years proven expertise and success. Their investment strategy is to acquire existing Class B and B+ commercial office buildings that have value enhancement potential through repositioning, re-tenanting, refurbishing and intensive hands-on asset management. The geographic focus is within 125 miles of Washington, DC with the three primary sub-markets consisting of Washington, DC, Northern Virginia and Suburban Maryland.
Guardian seeks to acquire and proactively asset and manage properties which generate risk adjusted returns that are significantly greater than larger Class A properties. Using a hands-on team approach, Guardian’s bottom line objective is to maintain a low level of risk, generate current cash flow and earn superior returns. The Principals, Executive Team, senior staff and property management personnel are actively involved in every transaction.
Guardian’s business model calls for future growth of the Firm through expansion of fund management, and the strategy employed in Fund Management today is the same strategy successfully deployed on a deal by deal basis since 1992.
