Starans Real Estate Management & Brokering
Starans is one of South Europe’s leaders in Real Estate Management & Brokering. At the moment we are invested in long-life, high-quality Real Estate mainly in the Mediterranean islands (i.e. those of Greece and mainland Cyprus). Our approach to investing on island properties stems from our heritage as an owner (and also tourist operator), investing our own capital to develop and operate the properties we gradually manage. Today we build on that expertise in sectors (islands mainly) where our operating experience gives us a competitive advantage.
Experience has also taught us that the best opportunities are often found in regions/sectors undergoing periods of financial or operational challenge. We utilize our small but mighty team of investment professionals and our vast network of tourism industry’s partners to identify and manage high-quality island properties at favorable valuations and finance them on a long-term, low-risk basis. To ensure that our interests are aligned with those of our investors’, we put our own capital first to work alongside theirs in nearly every deal we do, bringing the strengths of our global reach, large-scale capital and operating expertise to bear on all our property investments.
With a presence at the moment in two southern european countries, the current scale of our operations shows that we have significant access to proprietary deal flow. Our ready access to significant capital and the size of our balance sheet allow us to pursue transactions that few others may consider. We started solely as owner and operator of an island real estate and as our business has evolved, we continue to use our operational expertise to enhance cash flows, increase the value of our managed properties/assets and produce solid long-term returns for us and our investors.
