For 25 years, MAK Commercial Properties has steadily sustained and increased value in properties. Since we commenced operations in 1995, our strategy has been to acquire commercial multi-tenant properties with quantifiable upside potential in smaller to medium locations using 65-75% bank leverage. Our management team can increase occupancy, expense reimbursement, and lease rates to market levels.
We have strong relationships on the ground with locals in the regions where we own properties. We can easily add new investments into our portfolio seamlessly. Our management staff has designed systems and accounting templates to take on new properties efficiently. Our investment structure provides an attractive preferred return to our investors paid monthly and a share in excess cash flow generated above preferred return payments.
In total, over $310,000,000 of multi-family, office, and retail shopping centers were acquired. Currently, the MAK Commercial Properties' portfolio consists of over 1.2 million square feet comprised of 15 properties located in Texas, Arizona, Nevada, and California. The shopping centers currently under our firm's domain include retail strip and neighborhood shopping centers in the Las Vegas region of Nevada and Midland/Odessa, San Antonio, and Waco areas of Texas. The stabilized valuation of the MAK Commercial Properties' current portfolio is in excess of $130,000,000 with an Equity of $55,000,000.
Founder and Chief Executive Officer
Mark Kaufman has been involved in the syndication, management, renovation, financing, development, and disposition of real estate since 1984. Mark was featured on the cover of Money magazine in March 1985 for the successful investment and rehabilitation of single-family homes in Los Angeles. During the 1980s, Mark Kaufman also developed an eleven luxury townhouse project in West Hollywood, a 30,000 square foot office building in downtown San Bernardino, extensive earthquake renovations of sixteen units in Sherman Oaks. He also successfully entitled shopping center sites in Rancho Cucamonga and low-income multi-family projects in Los Angeles during this period.
In the mid-1990’s Mark began syndicating real estate investments starting with smaller apartment buildings in the Los Angeles region. Over the ensuing years, the enterprise expanded its focus from smaller residential local acquisitions to larger projects across several states and medium-sized commercial, primarily retail, properties.
MK Property Management Services, LLC, an entity that Mark Kaufman is the Owner of, currently manages all of these properties in some cases with
co-management from local real estate professionals.
