With over twenty-five years of success in the commercial real estate business, Patrick Hogan has been involved in nearly every phase of real estate acquisitions, development and repositioning of assets. As Founder and Principal of CSJ Investments LLC, with a primary focus on industrial acquisitions (while also pursuing retail and office opportunities), this experience is critical in the today’s complicated world of commercial real estate investing. Selecting functional properties with sustainable cash flow potential and an appropriate cost basis are only the first steps in building a portfolio of assets. Hidden potential and creativity are equally critical in identifying potential redevelopment projects. With his focus on financing and deal structures as well as tactical business alliances, Pat achieves the goal of value and wealth creation through calculated positioning of capital and personnel.
The basis for this strategy is the culmination of a wide breadth of experience at firms such as HSA Commercial, McShane Corporation and ML Realty Partners. Patrick has been at an executive level of management through several cycles of real estate economics and understands all that is required to persevere through adverse times. As a partner from the inception of his previous company, ML Realty Partners, Patrick was a member of the Board of Directors that lead to the growth of a portfolio valued at over $700 million in a period of seven years. During his tenure his leadership of numerous activities for the firm included asset management, financing for the entire portfolio, contract negotiations and oversight of the due diligence function. The strategic management of these functions, combined with Patrick’s ability to work in cooperation with others offered him a wide variety of professional contacts throughout the industry that continue to be the backbone to his current ability to see potential real estate deals that others may not. His pragmatic approach to people and deals alike is second only to his integrity and evenhandedness during crucial points in each deal.
Patrick received Bachelors degrees from Loras College in finance & business administration. He currently holds an Illinois Real Estate Managing Broker license. Additionally, he is an active community member and youth softball and basketball coach as well as a supporter and fundraiser for Feed My Starving Children, the American Cancer Society, Bridge Communities and several international organizations.
