$11B Atlanta-based RIA responds to investor interest in real estate investments, enhances suite of private investment offerings.
ATLANTA —April 21, 2022 — In response to continued client demand for private real estate investments, Homrich Berg (HB) has added real estate industry expert Sarah Hauptman as Director of Real Estate. She joins current HB Principal Ross Bramwell on the real estate sourcing and due diligence team. HB has invested directly in individual real estate properties for over 25 years in HB client portfolios, and has committed over $300 million to direct real estate investments for HB clients during the past five years alone.
With over 15 years of experience in commercial, multifamily and other real estate sectors across industries like industrial and hospitality, Hauptman brings next-level expertise to the dedicated HB investment team. Hauptman’s background working with institutional investors in the private real estate space provides a deep network and knowledge that will benefit HB clients looking for private real estate investments. “I’m eager to leverage my experience in a new way to help expand Homrich Berg’s private investments platform,” explains Hauptman. “I’ve worked in the Sunbelt region over the last several years, and I’m excited to help clients capitalize on the potentially lucrative opportunities in this growing region.”
Additionally, HB’s expanded private markets offerings will provide clients an option for potentially hedging against rising inflation. Thomas Carroll, President of Homrich Berg, explains how this mindset — and the growing popularity of private investments — confirmed the need for adding another real estate expert like Hauptman to the team.
“Real estate is an easy to understand, tangible asset, which makes it an attractive alternative investment option to consider, especially down here in the Sunbelt region,” explains Carroll. “We’re excited to have Hauptman join our real estate team and bring her network and skills in the real estate investing space, working hand in hand with our already extensive bench of private investments experts.”
Hauptman, an Atlanta native, recently moved back to the region after spending time in Dallas working with E2M Partners, Compatriot Capital and most recently Banner Oak Capital Partners, where she managed industrial assets across the Southeast region.
