FD Stonewater is uniquely positioned to maximize the value of our corporate and institutional clients’ real estate assets through our fully-integrated brokerage, investment, development and advisory platforms. We approach each asset management assignment as “owners” rather than third-party service providers, bringing our investment ownership pedigree and perspective to each transaction. Specific business plans are generated for each property and meticulously executed. The FD Stonewater platform offers the unique ability to couple our asset management services with our federal and private sector leasing, construction management, investment banking, lender restructuring and disposition/refinancing services. Our highly-skilled team of asset management professionals understands how to unlock value by identifying opportunities, enhancing cost efficiencies and structuring acquisitions and dispositions.
