DLR Real Estate Group a wholly owned Crecco company owns and operates multi-family properties in New York, North Carolina, Ohio and Connecticut.

We believe our success in investing in real estate over the past 60 years is based, primarily, on the following:

  • Acquisition and due-diligence partners with a dedicated and disciplined approach to equity creation and managerial repositioning of real estate assets.
  • An independent management company with 15 years of experience and an impressive record of lower vacancy rates than the metropolitan areas they operate in. The management team is involved from the beginning of due-diligence through all phases of renovation and asset repositioning.
  • Managing Members that “manage the managers” with a hands on approach resulting in employee accountability and overall asset performance.
  • Regular site visitation of assets in portfolio.
  • Partnership structure that promotes the interests of both the Limited and General Partner.
  • Our ability to develop relationships with top producers in strong markets and our reputation for performance.
  • Implementing current safety and compliance regulations on all our assets

Our focus has not been on the creation of a large real estate acquisition firm or management company. We do not participate in the real estate commission of acquisition or sale of the asset. Our mission is to purchase assets generating superior returns for both the Passive and the Managing Members. Through a galvanized focus on this mission, our investment decisions are made solely on the quality of the investment opportunity rather than overhead need of a real estate brokerage or management company.

We’ve created relationships in strategic markets with local bankers, lawyers, brokers, and property managers and construction professionals in an effort to have a complete local team in place to assist in transaction analysis and execution pre and post closing.
