Diligence , patience and expertise

BREAKFORM | RE is a vertically integrated real estate investment, management, development, design & build company.

We focus on developing architecturally significant, eco-friendly homes at attractive prices across the subsets of demand.

BREAKFORM | RE buys off-market assets that trade as a result of liquidity events from long time owners, sourced using data, analytics and a deep network of relationships.  Leveraging our knowledge of local laws and entitlement practices, and using relevant design amendments, we are able to obtain permits with expediency, reducing carrying costs, and speeding delivery timelines.  Our full integration of trades and fabrication facilities allow us to further optimize margins and profitability.

This sequence of events – mastered and repeated – results in a scalable and robust investment strategy that can withstand the throes of the residential housing market.

Dislocation generally leads to the greatest opportunities. As opportunistic investors within the real estate universe, we constantly search for dislocations, and when we find them we put together the best teams to capitalize on them.
