Founded by Peter Bren and Charles J. Schreiber, Jr. in 1992 as a private equity real estate company, KBS Realty Advisors is an SEC-registered investment advisor. KBS Realty Advisors and its affiliate, KBS Capital Advisors, are one of the nation's largest buyers of commercial real estate and structured debt investments, having consummated approximately $30.0 billion in transactional volume.
KBS Realty Advisors has created six institutional commingled funds, fourteen separate accounts with public and corporate pension funds and five sovereign wealth funds. KBS Capital Advisors was formed in 2006 as the exclusive advisor for KBS' publicly registered, non-traded REIT products, which are designed to give individual investors the ability to invest in a similar type of real estate and structured debt as KBS pension fund and institutional partners. Since 2006, KBS has formed five non-traded REITs which have acquired more than $9.3 billion in real estate and have led to KBS becoming one of the nation's top sponsors of nonlisted real estate investment trusts.
KBS has developed a reputation in the industry for being able to close quickly on large and complex transactions. KBS acquires equity properties in the office, industrial, multifamily and retail sectors, and is an active provider of mezzanine debt on well-positioned real estate assets. A regionally aligned organization, KBS prides itself on strong local market relationships and knowledge, and benefits from longstanding relationships with many of the nation's largest and most respected institutional sellers.
