TEI departmental structure provides for specialization and expertise in a particular area while the team approach brings a breadth of disciplines to the tasks at hand.
Francis Greenburger set up his business structure to work from the top-down, as well as laterally and from the bottom-up. Greenburger shares his visions and goals for the company and collaborates with his team of department heads in weekly and monthly executive committee meetings to discuss and communicate goals and status updates on current and upcoming projects. During these periodic meetings, departments share ideas alongside one another and stay up-to-date on the status of other departments.
Once a year the TEI Annual Conference is held, where senior management sets out corporate goals, and the staff of TEI is responsible for setting, meeting and reporting on their departmental goals. This approach allows the staff to contribute their own concepts to implement those goals and add new ideas. Business plans consisting of concrete goals, budgets and income projections are presented, reviewed and discussed by the entire TEI staff present.

Limiting Risk and Cultivating Opportunity

Offering Diversity in Property Type, Size and Market
Unlike some specialized investors, we are experienced and comfortable with virtually all property types and sizes. We can acquire property subject to existing financing as well as on an all-cash basis. If the transaction should require it, we have the ability to close quickly.
TEI currently holds in its own portfolio approximately 28.11 million square feet of residential, industrial, office and retail property – including over 3,800 multi-family apartment units. In addition, TEI is in various stages of development and pre-development of constructing approximately 1.4 million square feet of various property types which includes at least 1,447 residential units. With properties in 30 states, five Canadian provinces, Germany, the Netherlands, and Anguilla, British Virgin Islands, the TEI portfolio benefits from a diversity of property types, sizes and markets.

Our Investment Philosophy
Time Equities, Inc. has been in the real estate business for over 50 years. Over time, TEI has acquired a diverse portfolio with guiding principles that have remained the same: a dedication to long-term ownership and opportunistic buying. We have been very successful in identifying hidden value and emerging new markets that may produce above average returns. Our investment returns analyze for each acquisition using an immediate, mid-term and residual-value approach.
TEI typically invests in two types of property: "Stabilized" properties that are currently fully leased, which makes them immediate income producers, and "Added-Value" transactions on properties that require renovation, conversion, development and/or lease-up.
In addition to seeking unique opportunities for investment, at TEI we believe that a diverse portfolio, spread over multiple markets, is the best way to hedge against the inevitable market cycles that dominate the history of our industry.
TEI derives considerable benefit from its diversity of property types, sizes and markets. While our properties are mostly located throughout North America, we are always open to evaluating new markets.
