Extensive Credit Evaluation Experience

We have extensive experience in evaluating corporate credit­—an uncommon competency in today’s commercial real estate environment yet increasingly important, especially when evaluating long-term net-leased investment opportunities.

Enduring Relationships

We share lasting relationships with many of our major tenants, often providing direct access to decision makers and a unique understanding of how corporate real estate departments operate.

Constructive Buyers

When it comes to chasing deals we want, our focus is never derailed by the complexities of the negotiation process. Instead, we focus on solving problems and brokers pay attention – a major competitive advantage and an excellent starting point in achieving or exceeding our target returns.

Focus on Compliance and Risk Management

We have dedicated and experienced professionals who focus on accounting and financial reporting as well as compliance, risk and liability management.

Strong Investor Alignment

Menlo’s principals have made significant personal investments alongside its investors, creating strong alignment.

“We’ve built our organization on a rock-solid foundation of top talent and a tested investment strategy, always looking to the future while remaining true to our core entrepreneurial values.”
