Finding Opportunities in Commercial Real Estate! Interview with Property Whisperer Warren Ebert
He’s the CEO of Sentinel property group and has earned a reputation in the industry as the ‘property whisperer’ for good reason.
Not only has Ebert timed the market well — getting in prior to the booms and selling down prior to the busts — but he also has a proven track record of delivering impressive returns for investors.
In fact, under Ebert’s leadership, Sentinel has delivered an average annual return of 13.3% since its inception, far surpassing the market average!
What sets Sentinel Property Group apart is its focus on value-add and opportunistic investments.
The company has a reputation for identifying underperforming assets with potential to add value — implementing strategic changes to maximise their value.
As Warren says,
‘We were never about buying best of breed, as far as high quality properties, because how do you make money on that?
‘We make money out of properties, and same as I think any corporate takeover. If you buy a company that’s being run the absolute best, everything’s spot on, how do you make money?
‘You make money by fixing problems.’
This approach has enabled Warren to deliver strong returns — even in challenging economic times.
