Sentinel Real Estate Corporation and its affiliates comprise a fully integrated organization that provides real estate investment management services to institutional and qualified private investors in the United States and abroad. Sentinel manages pooled and separate accounts holding diversified portfolios of real estate properties valued at $4.5 billion. These portfolios include over 157 properties in 28 states, with many types of income-producing properties represented, from multifamily rental properties to office buildings, industrial facilities and shopping centers.

Over 100 real estate professionals oversee these investments from Sentinel’s national headquarters in New York. Another 1,000 employees manage and maintain these assets from regional offices and at individual properties throughout the country. Since inception, Sentinel’s strong property management capability has been an essential feature of its real estate investment programs and its strategies for adding value.

A core strength of Sentinel is the stability and experience of its senior management whose members average over 20 years with the company. This exceptional loyalty and continuity have been a principal reason for Sentinel’s success.
