Managed-Direct Ownership® — Transition Your Real Estate Portfolio

The Turn-Key Solution For Acquiring, Financing and Managing Commercial Real Estate

Our Managed-Direct Ownership® program is a structured real estate investment vehicle for investors who want a complete bundle of services for acquiring, financing, and managing a customized portfolio of commercial properties. After an initial consultation, you will be presented with properties best matching your stated criteria, including pricing and cash flow models. Our cost analysis includes all costs of the transaction and is guaranteed not to be exceeded. Additionally, Kingsbarn will sign the loan guarantees, making the investment truly “non-recourse.”

We sometimes refer to our Managed-Direct Ownership® program also as a “Structured 1031 Exchange.” We coordinate directly with your exchange accommodator so that the identification and exchange process is seamless. This “turn-key” strategy also includes all legal work, escrow and closing, and we provide a tax opinion for investors who are in a 1031 exchange. This program is especially attractive for investors who want a truly management-free investment but want to maintain control of all major investment decisions.
