Since The 1970s
While real estate is our foundation, we have interests in other diversified investment assets. With a foundation across real estate investment, management and structuring, our core business of real estate bridge loans was started in 1976. Since then, Cedar Hill has focused primarily on originating commercial real estate bridge loans, purchasing non-performing real estate debt, and investing in other asset classes.
Cedar Hill focuses on extending credit to real estate developers, owners and operators in need of capital. We apply critical thinking throughout our underwriting practices, incorporating realistic asset valuations, which are based on achievable assumptions, while structuring for downside risk protection. Having the flexibility to structure the investment in the most advantageous format is a key competitive advantage since these opportunities are typically off-market negotiated transactions.
Determining value in various market climates requires knowledge, discernment and an opportunistic approach to investing. Cedar Hill has developed and refined a rigorous property-level underwriting, due diligence and investment review process which enables us to identify and mitigate potential risks. The due diligence process includes macroeconomic and real estate market reviews, financial analyses and legal and environmental assessments. With over 50 years of real estate experience, our principals have a proven track record for finding opportunities which outperform the market.
