The Paskin Group is focused on providing value-add real estate opportunities to both accredited and 1031 exchange investors by seeking out assets that are set for immediate cash flow, are tax-efficient, and provide long-term capital appreciation. TPG’s vertically-integrated management company and operational strategies align with our investment objectives and consistently produce positive results for our investors.

Our disciplined approach to investing is centered around acquiring apartment assets at prices below replacement cost, using conservative levels of debt, located in growth markets, and have an opportunity to add value to the property over time through unit upgrades.  Collectively, this results in revenue growth and increases to asset valuations.

This investment strategy has defined our company’s historical success since 2006 and will continue to serve us and our investors well in the future.
