Trusted By Our Investors Since 2005
Bayfield Realty Advisors Inc. was established in 2005 as a private equity investment firm focusing primarily on commercial real estate assets across Canada. Spearheaded by Founder and CEO Harold Spring, we have become a top tier private equity real estate investment firm by using an investment strategy that adheres to one disciplined approach: opportunistically acquire investment properties while enhancing value through aggressive leasing, redevelopment, management and disposition.
Proven Track Record
Bayfield has a track record of creating value through a disciplined investment program of acquiring stabilized and opportunistic assets, while enhancing value through aggressive leasing, development, management and disposition
The majority of the Bayfield team has worked together for 10+ years and collectively bring over 100 years of real estate experience amongst a diverse cross section of seasoned professionals
Attractive Risk Adjusted Returns
The Bayfield’s strategy is well positioned to take advantage of market trends in retail and industrial asset classes that are uncorrelated to public equity markets
Strong Deal Flow
Bayfield has access to opportunities through traditional channels, off-market opportunities, and deals arising through its strategic partners, such as RioCan Real Estate Investment Trust.
A Strong Portfolio & National Co-Venture Partners
Fast forward 12 years and Bayfield has become one of Canada’s leading real estate investment and asset management firms, solidified by a real estate investment portfolio value of over $725 million dollars (with a total net leasable area of approximately 4 million square feet) and strong co-venture partnerships with national institutional investors and partners such as RioCan Real Estate Investment Trust, Sunstone Realty Advisors Inc., Dream and CREIT.
- AUM – $725 million of Assets Under Management
- Critical Mass – Approximately 4 million square feet of net leasable area across 15 high quality assets
- Yield – Over $40+ million of expected Net Operating Income in 2018
- Active Managers – Over $54 million in construction/renovation projects completed (with $28.8 million in the pipeline)
Bayfield doesn’t acquire every type of real estate: we focus only on commercial and industrial real estate because it is an attractive real estate investment model that presents a large upside and higher net operating income (NOI), while providing the opportunity to have properties that are valued higher due to the low capitalization rates unique to these types of assets. Over the years, this strategy has proven to be a stable and profitable focus for our clients.
High Yields, Low Volatility
Bayfield’s success is largely owed to its high net worth individual and institutional investors. Our investment approach has always sought to maximize the return on every client’s’ capital while providing the best defensive strategy for dealing with market uncertainty—and each client’s ongoing trust in us is a strong testament to our ability to bring high yields while protecting them from volatility.
