BUILDING ON EXPERIENCE
REAL ESTATE DEVELOPMENT AND FINANCIAL SERVICES
E. ANDRE' CARTER
E. André Carter has 30 years of entrepreneurial and development experience, beginning with his serial participation in seven IP-focused technology startups that required expertise with the classic development model. Participation in numerous real estate investments led to a career change that moved him back to D.C. exclusively.
As co-owner of the real estate investment business, Mr. Carter focuses on identifying and selecting properties for acquisition and development, highest and best use analysis, due diligence, financial modeling, devising construction and acquisition finance plans, developing marketing plans to achieve stabilization and value creation, and assisting with project design to drive yield and maximize efficiency. Since co-founding the real estate business, the ultimate value created in outbound sales or upon stabilization of the properties Mr. Carter has identified, acquired and developed has consistently exceeded the initial investment goals.
Andre’s investment themes have included:
Private, off-market transactions with long-term owners, families, and business founders.
Transit-oriented, community-supported projects, typically mixed-use with housing component for both median and upper income markets.
Value creation via entitlement and increased density in solid markets.
Enhanced investor yield via federal support and other tax credit funding.
Structured for sale or expanded development, yet financed conservatively to accommodate market changes.
