The first step is a careful underwriting of the market. Rugby seeks to identify markets that show potential for significant growth in the near term. Next, Rugby identifies properties that will be able to take full advantage of this anticipated market growth. These are properties that will benefit most from our core expertise of executing sensible capital expenditures, tenant-friendly supervision and leasing prowess. Our formula of selecting the right markets, acquiring the best properties and implementing sound ownership practices has proven itself through our 30+ year track record of successful projects.
Rugby Realty possesses an enviable portfolio of properties in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Florida and Georgia. Rugby Realty is also well known for tackling projects that aim to restore iconic but neglected historic properties to their former glory. Indeed Rugby’s principals take tremendous care to preserve the original character of these buildings, and have successfully completed more than five million square feet of rehabilitation.
Rugby Realty takes a hands-on approach to every step of a project, from capital expenditures, to leasing tours, to the minute details of design and operation. This methodology necessitates outstanding professionals who have honed their negotiation skills and know how to anticipate where the market is headed. Because Rugby Realty is almost an entirely self-funded equity firm, its principals are able to implement creative leasing programs to capture not only a larger market share, but the right market share for the particular property.
