REICO Podcast: Slatt Capital The Family-Oriented Lender Expanding to Serve Colorado Investors
Slatt Capital’s President Michael Kaplan and Denver Managing Director Adam Aluise share insights on the commercial real estate market and the importance of having a local partner when investing in out-of-state properties.
If you’ve ever purchased an out-of-state property, you’ve likely realized how important it is to have someone local help you through the process. Commercial Real Estate is no different and having someone that understands the local market can ensure that you are finding the best deals. Slatt Capital recognized that their California investors needed this when they started purchasing deals in Colorado so they decided to move with them. This move is an indication of their commitment to building and maintaining strong relationships with their clients. Their firm is rooted in family, reflected in how they work with their clients and approach their business.
One of the standout features of Slatt Capital is its correspondent relationship with insurance, which is the backbone of its firm. As a result, they represent 20 insurance companies and are a 5.2 billion dollars servicing mortgage banking firm. This relationship focus is what sets them apart from other commercial lenders and is one of the reasons why they’ve been so successful in the industry!
Michael and Adam shared their insights on where the opportunities lie. They mentioned that they aren’t seeing a lot of Value Add deals getting through, but instead, more stabilized deals. Most of their loans are pretty conservative, and they haven’t seen a strain in the middle market, from 2-30 million dollar space. If you know what you’re doing and are established, then you’ve likely properly reserved and adjusted your portfolio correctly.
When investing in commercial real estate, Denver is an attractive location right now. Slatt Capital is seeing tremendous liquidity in the market, creating opportunities for investors. Retail, industrial, and self-storage are particularly attractive in Denver right now. As always, it’s essential to do your due diligence and work with a trusted partner like Slatt Capital.
