Core Competencies

West Group has continued to evolve from a dedicated brokerage firm into a real estate investment, management and advisory organization with global reach and local focus.

West Group’s core competencies include:

San Francisco Expertise

West Group understands the dynamics of San Francisco. We know the streets, we know the politicians, we know the brokers, we know the special interest groups and we know the attorneys. We understand the rent control ordinance and the various landlord-tenant, condo conversion, subdivision, and land use laws at the local and state level that impact a San Francisco-based real estate investment. We know the opportunity zones, the fringe areas, what is on the napkin drawings, the developments that are approved and the areas in the path of progress.

Residential Multi-Family Focus

West Group, across its real estate investment management, and brokerage and advisory businesses, specializes in San Francisco multi-family investing. We bring to bear significant experience in investing in this very specific asset type.  These investments include apartment buildings, condo conversions and tenancy-in-common (TIC) conversions.  Our experience extends to pricing, owing, financing, and managing all physical and financial assets.
