With its principals having been involved in investment real estate since the 1970s, Ardmin Properties Brokers, Inc. was incorporated in 1999, establishing an organization dedicated to being an effective force in the commercial real estate market and creating wealth for its investors. One of the companys first ventures was the successful development of the Ardmin Courtyard condominium complex on Archer Avenue, which is the most visible of our properties and the launching pad for continued growth. Ardmin views real estate as a better investment opportunity than stocks, bonds and other traditional investment instruments for investors seeking stability and strong returns with conservatively managed risk.
While many people recognize the value of real estate as an investment, they do not want the on-going responsibilities and time commitments required to effectively manage properties and assure profitable returns. Ardmin not only participates as an investor in all projects, it effectively manages the investment properties and acts as sales agent when the properties have reached optimum value as investments. Our investors can realize the returns on larger commercial, industrial and multi-unit residential properties without having to make the commitments of time, knowledge and effort required to participate in this profitable real estate market segment.
In addition, many individual investors may not want to commit the more significant financial resources needed to acquire and develop larger properties, which, in turn, produce larger returns. Ardmin provides an opportunity for investors to take advantage of the economies of scale associated with larger properties. These opportunities are structured as Limited Liability Companies, which enable multiple investors to participate. This creates a pool of capital sufficient to allow Ardmin to effectively acquire, develop, manage and sell such properties and to generate attractive returns for all investors.
Ardmin has expanded to effectively pursue its continued growth, adding personnel to locate properties, negotiate acquisitions and manage these properties efficiently. In addition, we have strong relationships with experienced professionals who provide expertise in finance, legal assistance, banking and other affiliated services. Our strengths lie in our approach to investing in commercial real estate, providing the market knowledge and management capabilities required for success and creating an opportunity for our investors to use these capabilities to build wealth through their investments in Ardmin ventures.
