Our Company and Investment Focus
Our investment focus is affordable and market rate multifamily housing. Our team works to understand all aspects of a transaction, from finance to construction to rehabilitation, allowing us to deliver a guaranteed closing and maximum price to sellers, all in a minimum amount of time.
Reliant’s professional staff has an unmatched range of skills and specialties, spanning tax-exempt bonds, low-income housing tax credits, structured finance, construction, rehabilitation, asset management, and social services.
Assets We Acquire
Creative solutions that combine sophisticated financial and real estate structuring are a hallmark of our investments. We find value where others can’t; we understand and mitigate challenges before they threaten a deal. Reliant’s discretionary capital allows us to enter a transaction through debt or equity. We can invest at any point in the capital stack, and acquire tax exempt bonds, affordable and market rate multifamily housing, and develop new construction market rate multifamily housing.
Since its founding in 1992, Reliant Group (“Reliant”) has acquired over $3 billion of complicated real estate and loan transactions requiring extensive rehabilitation, construction, repositioning, environmental remediation, financial restructuring, and hands-on management. This active investment approach has allowed Reliant to identify and create value throughout every real estate cycle of the last three decades and build a remarkable record of success.
The initial investments of Reliant included over $750 million of debt from the Resolution Trust Corporation (“RTC”) and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”). Reliant was the RTC’s largest buyer of loans secured by properties with environmental issues. In 1995, the firm broadened its acquisitions to include debt sales by private sellers, banks, and foreign institutions and an additional $550 million of debt was purchased from these sellers.
Since 2000, Reliant has specialized in acquiring bond and tax credit financed, affordable multifamily apartment communities, market rate apartments and new construction of multifamily assets. In 2001 Reliant launched its first proprietary, discretionary investment fund, called the Capital Accelerator Program (CAP Fund). Since 2001, Reliant has launched a new CAP fund every 12-18 months. The CAP series of funds have acquired or invested in over 22,000 units of affordable and market rate multifamily housing across the country. Investments made by the CAP Funds are completely discretionary to management of Reliant. This flexible capital source allows the firm to meet the demands of any transaction for speed and creative structuring. No outside approvals are required for funding transactions. The principals of Reliant are the decision makers.
Few firms have the depth of knowledge and multidisciplinary capabilities that Reliant brings to the process of acquiring complicated real estate transactions.
