The Timberland Difference

Exclusively Multifamily

Unlike category agnostic real estate managers, we operate only in the multifamily sector of the real estate market, with the goal of doing it better than anyone else through deep expertise.

Disciplined Value-Add Strategy

We acquire properties where we can increase the Net Operating Income through completing a lease-up, strategic capital improvements, and/or improved operational efficiency.

We Manage What We Own

Our management company operates all properties in our portfolio, and does not manage for any other owners. This integration allows for superior underwriting, cost-efficiencies across markets, and seamless integration from acquisition to ongoing operations.

Long-Term/Tax Advantaged

We acquire and manage assets for long-term wealth growth through value creation at the property level, and utilize all available tax incentives including 1031-Exchanges and Refinances as appropriate.

We’re Your Partner

We invest significant personal capital in every deal. This “Skin-In-The-Game” ensures complete alignment of interest between the Sponsor and our investment partners.

Unparalleled Transparency

Since the founding of the company, Timberland Partners has championed uncompromising integrity and transparency with our investment partners. Our partners can expect timely, detailed updates on their investments’ performance, real-time performance metric tracking, and an accessible investor relations team.
