True North CRE specializes in selling multifamily properties and development sites throughout the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area. We take tremendous pride in doing so professionally and ethically while seeking new levels of refinement in our process and achieving superior outcomes for our clients.
Our core values are client driven. We LISTEN to and UNDERSTAND our clients’ needs and investment goals. We pride ourselves on honesty, integrity and respect and treat our clients like family. As principals and brokers, we understand all facets of a transaction and will always be transparent with our clients.
Our extensive knowledge of the Southern California multifamily market coupled with an unparalleled network of apartment owners, buyers, and investment sales brokers enables us to achieve unprecedented results for our clients.
Sincerity. Responsibility. Doing the right thing. That’s what you can count on when we work together. Multifamily real estate is an industry filled with hard decisions and the need to acquire valuable assets to secure meaningful ROI. Through it all, we hold ourselves accountable—to our clients, their investors, and each other. We celebrate our wins collectively and learn from our losses in the same manner. When corrections need to be made, we are open and honest about finding a better path to success. When we achieve success, we ensure it's not solely ours. It belongs to our team, clients, investors, and anyone within the community that stands to benefit from our unified achievement.
For multifamily investments to succeed, all interested parties must have access and insight into a transaction's full scope, not just the numbers on the front or back end of a deal, but the dedication and commitment of the team brokering their asset or portfolio. Whether a private client or institutional investor, we ensure those who trust us with their financial success are accorded complete insight into our processes related to their assets and how we conduct ourselves professionally beyond any specific transaction. Where we uncover concerns, our assessments are frank and forthcoming. Communication is open and frequent, available through numerous channels, and suitable to the client. Whatever questions need to be answered or visibility provided, we aim to deliver to the client full disclosure, so they move forward with complete confidence.
Positive outcomes are at their most meaningful when everyone's voice is heard. From the front-line representative to the top-level executive, we support all stakeholders from the earliest stages of identifying an asset to purchase or sell through executing the pre-closing transition to supporting the post-closing management. We support the team and are empathic to the individuals that play a role in pushing transactions across the finish line. Where ideas flourish, we encourage them. Where assistance is necessary, we provide it. Where there is an opportunity to advocate for others, we embrace it.
It's not enough to simply listen to what a client says. We strive to put ourselves in their shoes; to gain a complete picture of what they hope to achieve and, more importantly, what they need to achieve to ensure a truly successful real estate transaction. To realize the whole vision, to understand, we engage our clients. We ask questions. We uncover what's important to them. Yes, we listen, but we seek to know more, learn more, and position ourselves to be what the client requires.
We take the time to get to know our clients on a personal level, building lasting trusting relationships that are essential to a successful transaction. We'd love to get to know you and your team; open up a discussion, and see what transpires. Even if a deal isn't feasible today, we value the chance to trade philosophies on buying or selling multifamily real estate, exploring short and long-term goals, and establishing a relationship. After all, real estate portfolios ebb and flow, but the relationships we build within the industry are what endure.
Having John handle our real estate transaction was the best decision. He took care of all the details, only called to discuss a problem after he researched solutions, kept us informed at every step and the extra bonus is that John is a pleasure to interact with. He really cares about his clients and it was magnificent service all the way!— Kimberly
I wanted to thank you for your assistance in purchasing 5455 Inglewood Blvd in Los Angeles. This off-market purchase was extremely well-executed, and your assistance in structuring acquisition terms that allowed us to realize value by ensuring that the property was almost fully leased before the purchase was extremely helpful. I look forward to doing another transaction together.— S. Paperin
I would highly recommend John Swartz. He is a consummate professional who is very knowledgeable about the marketplace. We engaged him to sell our property in Van Nuys and complete a 1031 exchange transaction and couldn’t have been happier with the execution. John’s years of experience in the industry show in his market knowledge and ability to steer potential buyers and sellers in your direction.— Vipul P.
We take the time to get to know our clients on a personal level, building lasting trusting relationships that are essential to a successful transaction. Having worked on the principal side of the business we understand both sides of the transaction and can overcome any hurdle that may come up during a deal. Our goal is to provide an enjoyable experience that leads to a successful outcome for all involved. We'd love to get to know you; open up a discussion and see what transpires.
