An affiliated group of privately-owned, multi-state real estate investment companies established in 1927.
As a fourth-generation family owned firm, Carnegie has a long history of sustained profitability and positive cash flow. Carnegie currently owns or holds significant financial interests in over 45 properties located in Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, New York, and Ohio.
Carnegie’s portfolio is principally comprised of multi-tenant retail, but also includes multi-family, industrial, parking garages, and undeveloped land. Carnegie typically manages its properties with a long-term orientation. In fact, the company has owned and operated certain properties in excess of forty years.
Throughout its four-generation history, Carnegie has continuously strived to provide the highest level of integrity and service to our employees, tenants, brokers, investors, lenders, and transactional partners.
Carnegie maintains a moderate investment strategy by purchasing existing value-add opportunities which maximize upside potential while limiting downside risk. The company has a conservative capital structure with a number of its properties owned debt-free while existing debt is typically non-recourse and property-specific. It is the company’s philosophy to seek enhanced returns through intensive management with an orientation of long-term ownership.
Carnegie is an “approved” purchaser and borrower of the F.D.I.C. (and its predecessor, the R.T.C.), H.U.D., and various other major institutional lenders. Carnegie has the in-house capability to complete substantial transactions by using its own cash resources, drawing down existing bank lines of credit, and/or by involving additional equity participation from investors.
Carnegie currently owns or holds significant financial interests, in over 45 properties.
