Katz Durell has the resources, knowledge and capacity to work with large volume real estate investment groups, as well as individual clients. In recent years public and private money backed groups have entered many metropolitan areas, one of which is Atlanta.
These groups account for a large market share of the rental market and have significantly helped real estate valuations by purchasing and rehabbing single family homes all over the Georgia.
Katz Durell has developed and maintained relationships with these large investment groups. We understand the needs of a volume based client such as a large hedge fund or REIT. Our staff and attorneys work hand in hand with their Acquisitions Managers and support staff to ensure that their title work is completed and cleared quickly and that their transactions get closed in an efficient manner.
We also strive to introduce our large investors to as many inventory resources as possible. We work with numerous wholesalers, birddogs and other investors looking for buyers for their product. We feel that relationship sharing is a key element to maintaining the volume business these groups need.
