A&E is an entrepreneurial, privately-owned, vertically-integrated real estate management and investment firm with preeminent property management, asset management, and construction capabilities. A&E deploys the capital of leading US institutions, endowments, pension plans, and family offices, creating value in New York City neighborhoods often ignored by the market, while providing quality homes and attractive risk-adjusted returns.
A&E was founded in 2011 with the simple philosophy that we and our residents have a mutual long-term interest in preserving multifamily residential buildings as high-quality, well-maintained housing assets throughout New York City’s strong neighborhoods.
Starting with the purchase of a single 49-unit building in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, A&E has grown to be one of the largest owners and managers of residential properties in New York City. The firm’s fully integrated platform allows it to provide a level of focus and attention to detail that no third-party manager ever could.
Our resident-first philosophy makes A&E a responsible community stakeholder and a reliable steward of our investors’ capital.
