Founded in 1992 by Peter Bren and Charles J. Schreiber, Jr., KBS Realty Advisors is one of the leading real estate investment advisors in the nation. KBS is a real estate operating company, not a financial institution. KBS understands the complexities of managing and operating real estate and has successfully executed its strategies on behalf of fourteen separate accounts, six commingled funds and five public non-traded REITs since the company's inception.
Acting on behalf of investors, KBS has often been awarded full discretionary use of capital due to its extensive "hands-on" experience in the real estate industry, which encompasses almost every major metropolitan area in the nation. KBS senior executives average thirty-three years of direct real estate experience, honed by the discipline of four real estate cycles.
KBS recognizes that the key to its success is its people. Not only does KBS employ some of the most talented professionals in the industry, it also believes that conducting good business and forming lasting relationships are the reason the company has often been selected as a preferred buyer, and why it is often awarded repeat investment allocations.
