Perduk and Elevate CEO Harold Hofer purchased more than $400M in prior real estate endeavor
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., May 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Real estate wealth tech platform Elevate.Money (Elevate) today announced the appointment of David A. Peruk as its Chief Investment Officer. Perduk’s decades-long career includes leadership positions at CBRE, Rich Uncles, RW Holdings NNN REIT and Newport Net Lease, Inc. While they were both at Rich Uncles, Perduk and Elevate CEO Harold Hofer purchased more than $400M in real estate.
Elevate.Money offers the same type of Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) investment as Blackstone, one of the largest real estate owners in the U.S., with one key difference: Elevate focuses on a younger generation of investors who’ve been conditioned to manage money directly through online platforms
Under Perduk’s leadership as CIO, the team will continue to find, buy and manage properties that meet the Elevate Lens+ criteria. Elevate’s REIT holdings started with a Family Dollar located in Fort Worth, Texas. Additional property acquisitions will be announced this year.
"I am thrilled to join Elevate’s co-founders, Harold (Hofer) and Sachin (Jhangiani), and Alex (Cruttenden) on their mission to make real estate investing accessible for all," said Perduk. "Elevate is poised to impact the real estate market on behalf of its investors in a very real way. I’m eager to grow our portfolio for the long-term benefit our investors."
Most recently, Perduk represented institutional real estate owners focused on single tenant net lease (STNL) investment properties. This experience will be valuable as Elevate also focuses on STNL properties such as dollar stores, fast-food restaurants, car washes and gas stations.
