Does anyone have any info or experience with Dixon Advisory USA? even though it is a REIT and are institutional in resources, they invest in single family, brownstones and some small apartment buildings. all assets are in the NYC metro area and the vast majority of their assets are single family and brownstones. they do do some JV's on small apartment buildings but i think it is a very small % of assets.

would working as an analyst on 4 unit brownstones and single family homes, which aren't the usual institutional assets (compared to office, multi, retail etc) be a negative? would switching back to traditional RE asset firms be difficult? say a large multifamily reit or pe firm.

thoughts on working for a company that invests in assets like this?

I'm assuming you're looking at their recently posted acquisitions analyst position - I saw it too.

Also interested in hearing about this topic.

I don't know about a negative, but I don't think it'll give you an advantage over any other CRE job if you want to do CRE in the future. SF is very simple and I'm sure you will be competing against folks who have backgrounds more focused on what you want to do when you are competing for interviews. In addition, I don't think Dixon's personnel backgrounds seem particularly impressive - saw like a former real estate agent as a senior acq person..

What do you do now?

multi family valuations for a REPE company. looking to go into an acquisitions role. I figure that it wouldn't really be a step forward career wise but they work is interesting to me because im into townhomes, redevelopment etc. single family doesn't interest me but 4 unit townhomes and small apartment buildings in nyc interest me.
