Client Reviews

"I have been investing with Southgate Real Estate Ventures for over five years. During this time, Southgate has increased the value and quality of many properties, resulting in a strong return for me and the communities they invest in.  I work with Southgate because of their expertise and local market knowledge. They also consider how best to improve a property to complement its surroundings. Many investments require significant capital improvements, and Southgate's attention to detail and providing quality living accommodations are critical for long-term growth and sustainability. Investing in real estate is, in part, a way to play a role in improving the cities where we live, and Southgate does just that."

“I think the assets I’m invested in are fantastic. The upgrades are enough to maximize rents while not over investing given that a future buyer may be a developer. I think the properties are being managed really well. We saw a few tenants who seemed really happy with their places. The locations were awesome. I loved the neighborhoods around the properties. I hope there are more opportunities for us to work together in the future!”
