Due Diligence

Due diligence is more than "checking the box" with respect to questions and answers. It is a method to uncover the details that others might miss. It is an attention to not only the real estate itself but the macro/micro economics affecting the real estate. In order to become a value-add partner we believe in constantly researching the areas around the project in question in order to learn about the changing dynamics that might affect the overall returns. J Alexander believes that due diligence is a "constant" process that does not end until a successful exit.
