Below is our recent interview with Munira Virany and Jacqueline Post, Co-Managing Directors at Post Real Estate Group:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your company?
A: Of course! Post Real Estate Group is a real estate investment and property management company. We always say that we lead with our values – people first, transparency, doing the right thing, and a focus on optimizing the value of each asset and long-term returns. We have had tremendous success with our communities the past few years because our residents want timely, professional service as do our vendors and clients. By focusing on professional, white glove service, and tailoring needs per recipient, we find that our engagements are more positive and our team is happier.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: We are honored to be recognized on the Inc 5000 list for the first time! We premiered at number 402 out of 5000, which is the top 9%. This was not only unexpected for us but also motivating – we are now focusing on % of revenue growth in addition to our other business metrics to figure out how to beat that 1,503% growth next year! A tough ladder to climb, for sure.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: We are a private real estate investment and property management company that provides seamless technology allowing owners, vendors, and residents, with 24/7 access to real time metrics. This allows our clients to see the good, the bad, and the ugly, which aids efficient and timely decision-making. With few exceptions, most of our clients love it! They ask us how to optimize the value of their assets, what we are purchasing, and asset classes that we are investing in. At present, we are focused on student-housing and equitable housing as they are both stable and relatively scarce when comparing supply to demand. One university that we are purchasing near is underbedded for freshman by 500+ people – and that’s just the freshman class. We hope to work together with our partners, housing commissions, and the communities in which we operate, to provide exceptional housing options at affordable pricing.
Q: What can we expect from your company in next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: We are focusing on better serving our existing clients and confirming that we are maximizing our operational efficiency while scaling the investment and housing side. With this market, the unpredictable is predictable, but the plans include opening more student housing, some development, and more growth in the states in which we currently operate (California, Colorado, and Florida).
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: We really like working together! Property management and spreadsheets can be a grind – but we really try to consistently focus on the outcomes of what we do and not the process. We understand that most folks our team encounters has an issue or a need which is why we are engaging. We try to bring positive energy, learning and growth opportunities, and sharing the same with our communities so that we truly impact their day; instead of just answering a question. In addition to the day-to-day, we are also focusing on impact investing and how to create win/win synergies with those around us in potentially non-traditional ways. Real estate is the footprint by which many services and products are delivered. We are excited to explore this concept as we move forward.
