RICHMOND, Va. (Feb. 14, 2013) – Louis J. Rogers, a 29-year veteran of commercial real estate investments, has launched Capital Square Realty Advisors, LLC.
Capital Square provides institutional quality real estate investments for high net worth investors seeking replacement property for Section 1031 exchanges and regular cash investments. The company uses the Delaware Statutory Trust structure to syndicate properties in smaller units for acquisition by qualified, high net worth investors.
“The DST structure is a proven and efficient vehicle for syndicating commercial real estate investments,” said Louis Rogers, founder and chief executive officer of Capital Square Realty Advisors. “Capital Square structures real estate investment programs intended to provide superior risk adjusted returns to investors along with material tax advantages.”
Since beginning his career in the real estate securities industry in 1984, Rogers has been involved in creating and managing more than 100 investment offerings totaling in excess of $3 billion, including tenant-in-common, DST and multiple publicly registered non-traded real estate investment trusts. He spent 20 years as an attorney specializing in real estate taxation, real estate and securities law, primarily with respected law firm Hirschler Fleischer in Richmond, Va.
Rogers added, “Capital Square intends to structure DST offerings with properties that have long-term, triple-net leases with investment grade tenants. We are a newly formed company with cash on our balance sheet and no debts or liabilities. We look forward to structuring successful programs for independent broker-dealers and their clients across the country.”
Capital Square, through its affiliate, Capital Square Management, provides acquisition, asset and property management, as well as loan sourcing assistance for private clients, including high net worth individuals, private equity firms, family offices and institutional investors. Capital Square currently oversees a portfolio of office, multifamily and mixed use assets in Va., Ga., Fla and Wisc.
