Acquisitions / Dispositions

AURA is able to identify, underwrite, structure and close complex investment transactions with the client's needs in mind. Clients benefit from the substantial internal resources provided by a large financial institution, including debt, environmental, engineering, appraisal, and legal due diligence staff. By performing these major functions of real estate in-house, we enhance control of strategy execution and accountability to our clients to achieve our results.
