Capital Square Awarded Prestigious AMO® Accreditation by IREM®
RICHMOND, Va. (Jan. 31, 2024) – Capital Square, one of the nation’s leading sponsors of tax-advantaged real estate investments and an active developer and manager of housing communities, announced today that it has earned the prestigious AMO® (Accredited Management Organization) accreditation from IREM®, the Institute of Real Estate Management. Capital Square joins an exclusive group of real estate management companies world-wide that have met the requirements to earn this distinction.
“Capital Square is an investor-centric manager with an emphasis on tax-advantaged real estate investments,” said Louis Rogers, founder and co-chief executive officer of Capital Square. “The firm has set a high bar by offering exceptional real estate programs with cutting-edge features, including property audits to provide independent verification of performance, subordination of disposition fees, cost segregation studies to maximize tax benefits and use of technology to improve the investment experience via an investor portal. The AMO designation provides independent verification that Capital Square’s management team brings exceptional expertise and the highest level of ethics to every project and relationship. This is another major milestone in the growth and development of Capital Square as a leading manager of real estate investments.”
IREM was formed in 1933 by representatives of real estate firms whose primary concern was the financial responsibility of those who were managing property for others. Their code of ethics protects the public, promotes competition, reflects contemporary business practices, and sends a powerful message to the marketplace that IREM members act ethically. The IREM AMO program was created as the acknowledgment that professionalism has meaning from both an individual and corporate perspective and is aimed at protecting the public from unethical and improper management practices and techniques.
Celebrating more than 75 years of distinction, AMOs demonstrate strong financial performance, outstanding leadership, and adhere to a Code of Professional Ethics strictly enforced by IREM to maintain integrity beyond reproach. Accreditation as an AMO requires firms to follow best practices in real estate management, demonstrating that they meet standards and functions related to operations and service. Property owners can be assured that an AMO will put their interests first.
Capital Square has overseen more than 170 individual properties for 135 investment offerings owned by over 6,500 investors nationwide. As of year-end 2023, the firm’s real estate portfolio totaled 62 multifamily, 13 manufactured housing and 63 commercial assets owned by the firm’s DST programs, qualified opportunity zone funds and real estate investment trust, Capital Square Apartment REIT, Inc.
Capital Square uses a team approach to manage this large portfolio. The firm’s asset managers are the quarterbacks of the properties they oversee, and the property managers are responsible for day-to-day management and operation of multifamily properties. The asset and property managers work in a team structure, along with other team members who are responsible for legal matters, acquisitions, accounting, finance and investor relations. In awarding the AMO designation, IREM has independently validated Capital Square’s management structure.
Since its formation in 2012, Capital Square has raised more than $3 billion in equity from investors for its tax-advantaged real estate investment offerings. The company has consistently ranked as one of the leading sponsors of Delaware statutory trust (DST) investment programs for investors seeking the advantages of Internal Revenue Code Section 1031 exchanges and is also an active sponsor of qualified opportunity zone funds, development LLC’s and Capital Square Apartment REIT, a real estate investment trust that invests in multifamily communities throughout the Southeast.
