Invest conservatively: Our first principle is to not lose money, a critical component of which is buying at the right price in the right location.

Create value: We create value through transformation of buildings with careful investment, better management, attention to community prosperity, and greening.

Build value: We make judicious investments in our buildings in order that they may return current cash flow and proceeds from refinancings and timely sales.

Gain knowledge: Not only are we creating financial capital, but also collecting data, growing intellectual capital, and advancing thought on how to green America's building stock.
