Peter Politis, CEO of Greybrook Realty Partners, joined host Jeremiah Shamess, SVP, Private Capital Investment Group at Colliers International, in a Twitter Live interview to discuss how hands-on investors can gain access to investing in large-scale residential real estate development, Greybrook’s acquisition strategy in Southern Ontario and Southern Florida, and what’s currently happening in the housing market in Toronto and the GTA.

During the discussion, Peter provided insight into Greybrook’s expanding portfolio in South Florida with completed projects, including The Elser Hotel & Residences and Society Las Olas, to our projects under construction, such as Waldorf Astoria Hotel & Residences Miami and Society Wynwood.  

Peter spoke about the growth that the Sunshine State has experienced over the pandemic and how Greybrook’s investment approach has enabled us to capitalize on the region’s population boom. He also touched on Greybrook’s value-add side of the business with affiliate company Greyspring Apartments and how that side of the business complements our overall investment strategy.  

One key topic of discussion was the best way to build more housing in Toronto. Peter emphasized the need to increase the housing supply to meet the city’s growing demand and Canada’s increased immigration targets. He noted a few ways to achieve this goal, including building more high-rise buildings, increasing density in certain areas, and promoting the development of more mixed-use communities. 

The conversation offered insight into the current state of the real estate market, including trends in residential rental buildings in Canada versus the U.S. in cities like Toronto and New York. Peter remarked on the importance of building a diverse portfolio no matter the location, from low-rise and high-rise to multi-family and value-add rentals.  

Peter remarked there are still many opportunities for investors in the real estate market. By staying informed and leveraging the expertise of experienced investors and developers, hands-on investors can make informed decisions and succeed in the real estate market.
