Our investment strategy

We Invest in Opportunities Others Overlook

For nearly two decades, we have refined our systematic approach to real estate investment and management. The Avenue Living strategy concentrates on realizing steady returns by acquiring assets in geographically and economically varied markets. Our method of enhancing assets and building equity is not only logical, but measurable and replicable. By fostering long-term value from existing infrastructure, we positively impact not only our business and investors, but also the communities we serve.

Though we have broadened our scope and diversified our asset base, our mission stands strong: to invest in real estate that serves everyday North Americans. Our funds encompass core, core plus and value-add strategies while remaining diligent through data-driven decisions, and drawing on our proven track record at every stage of the investment life cycle. 

1.

Defensible

We have a stable business model that withstands volatility. Our proven investment philosophy has generated value throughout market fluctuations, and we have grown in a way that is strategic and sustainable while minimizing risk.  

2.

Responsible

We are intentional in how we make acquisitions and capital improvements, choosing the path that makes the most sense for us and our stakeholders. This intention also drives our commitment to ESG initiatives that improve the comfort of our properties and reduce our carbon footprint.  

3.

Customer Focused

Our customers are at the core of everything we do. Our commitment to end-to-end active management of our properties set us apart, driving us to understand their needs and wants, while providing top-tier service through our vertically integrated platform.

Our Story

Building a Proprietary Platform

With our first property in Brooks, Alberta, we embarked on a journey to consolidate multi-family residential assets in markets that fly under the radar of most investorsWith institutional property managers focused on serving primary markets, we identified the need to build a proprietary platform that could deliver an exceptional experience to our growing resident base in secondary and tertiary markets.

Our proprietary platform has grown alongside us as we have replicated our strategy of acquiring and optimizing real estate assets across strategically identified markets in Canada and the United StatesOur unique approach has made us one of the largest private real estate owner/operators in North America. 

A Historic Year for Our Defensible Strategy

2022 Year-End Review

In 2022, Avenue Living grew to $4.6B in assets under management across our four asset classes, and now operates in one third of the provinces and states throughout North America. With a cycle-tested business model and a steadfast commitment to the everyday, Avenue Living continued to make great strides. Our expanded footprint includes new offices in Toronto and Dallas.

Throughout the year, we focused on improving our customer satisfaction through active management, invested in technology to create operational efficiencies and elevated our ESG efforts. In 2022, accelerating inflation and rising interest rates created a challenging investment environment, with negative returns flashing across the asset spectrum. Still, that did not stop Avenue Living’s 16-year growth streak.

It speaks to the durability of Avenue Living’s business model across multiple market cycles,” says Gabriel Millard, SVP, Capital Markets – Equity & Research. “2008 (GFC) and 2014 (Commodity Crisis) were lost years for many other players, but they were periods of growth for Avenue Living as we leaned into the opportunities. 2022 was another very formative year for us.”
