Eyzenberg & Company is a proud member of the Real Estate Capital Alliance (“RECA”) (www.reca.us). RECA is a formal, invite-only collaboration among 20 independently owned capital advisory firms that was established solely to leverage relationships, experience and daily interactions for the benefit of members' clients. Collectively, the 50+ originators have arranged over $25 billion in debt and $2 billion in joint venture equity and structured capital since 2003. Membership affords us and our clients the following benefits:
Real-time market feedback across all geographies, asset classes and lender sets for active deals in the marketplace. Provides the leverage and knowledge base to negotiate true “market” terms for our clients.
Dynamic and open architecture database of capital sources implemented via a “crowd-sharing” model. Only through a larger collaborative and transparent effort can a single firm stay up to date with job and strategy changes, company formations/dissolutions and general market flux.
Aggregate production volume dissuades capital provider shenanigans. The firm has implemented a penalty box concept for those providers retrading deals for foreseeable circumstances. Additionally, members share their collective experience with each other regarding problematic providers, allowing us to steer clients away from the “bad apples”.
The majority of members are CEO/Partner level and therefore the 80/20 rule does not apply. Unlike larger firms, senior level executives at RECA member firms deliver services directly in every situation. Having the collective knowledge of a high-performing peer set allows best practices to be naturally implemented for the benefit of all.
