About Us: History

DRA Advisors is a real estate investment organization that has specialized in value-added investing for over 30 years. Originally founded as a subsidiary of the Dreyfus Corporation in 1986, DRA has operated as a privately-held company since 1994. From our beginnings as a work out specialist and separate account manager, our business has grown and evolved. Today, DRA invests solely through its series of value-added commingled funds. Most importantly, we have maintained our discipline and singular focus on value-added investing.

DRA has operated over multiple market cycles since the late 1980s, which we believe provides us with a unique depth of experience. We have consistently identified value-added opportunities under different market conditions including single asset purchases, portfolio acquisitions with both public and private partners, and the privatization of public companies. In addition to our core activity of creating value at the asset level, we capitalize on arbitrage opportunities between public and private markets when available.
