At New Urban Properties, we operate in dynamic and challenging real estate markets. As a consequence, and to be truly effective, agile and adaptive, we need the best - not the most - people. Ours is a small and collaborative team of highly entrepreneurial professionals, working to create and preserve wealth for our investors at all points during the market and capital cycles. We draw on a wealth of experience and a powerful sense of discipline and dedication. As a small and focused team, we live the market, everyday.
Our team is small and focused on achieving results. We consider our size to be one of our strategic advantages - we are in contact with every aspect of the property industry on a daily basis, in a way that those working for larger organizations are not. We invite you to contact us and learn more about what makes our offerings unique.
