Constanti Real Estate monitored Silverleaf Advisors who were formed in 2008, primarily to take advantage of the distressed debt and banking crisis that followed the real estate ‘bubble’ in Florida. Constanti Real Estate was involved in raising initial capital on real estate asset backed loans using real estate hard assets as collateral. Within 9 months of investment the capital appreciation grew by 100% largely due to the foresight shown by the fund who were in the right place at the right time in the US crisis from 2008.The strategy was to only acquire properties at significant discounts to ensure fast sales, look for highly liquid assets and to customise investment strategies. A decade of gains were erased almost immediately after the collapse of Lehman. We saw this as an opportunity as assets were available at 1/3 of peak prices.
