Our Philosophy

Founded in 1973 and based in Atlanta, Branch Properties, LLC, is a private real estate investment firm whose primary focus is high-quality grocery-anchored shopping centers located in the southeastern United States. As a vertically integrated real estate operating company, Branch has the in-house expertise to source, negotiate, acquire, develop, re-develop, finance, lease and manage its investments.

Over the past 40+ years, Branch and its affiliated companies have acquired, developed and managed over $2.5 billion of commercial real estate, accounting for more than 12 million square feet of leasable space. Branch’s investment acumen, operating experience, market relationships and access to capital enable it to source and execute attractive risk-adjusted investment opportunities on behalf of its investors and partners.


Since its inception, Branch has been governed by its core values. These values shape the culture and define the overall character of the company. They guide how management behaves and makes decisions.


We consider our reputation to be our most precious commodity, and we are quite serious about maintaining this sense of integrity in all that we undertake.


We believe that our relationship with our investors and other stakeholders should be open and transparent. We are dedicated to providing full disclosure in our work and to providing accurate information on a timely basis.


We strive to remain objective in our analyses and our decision-making processes realizing, however, that judgment and experience are key components of every decision.


We constantly assess our strengths and weaknesses and make every effort to make only commitments that we can keep. We acknowledge that we sometimes do make mistakes and, during such times, we diligently seek to learn from them.

These core values form the foundation for Branch’s overall business philosophy.
