Urban Street is a principal. For 25 years we have been acting as bona fide buyers of real estate. We are not realtors who represent other people. Also, we are not “wholesalers” who make offers on properties, lock-up deals, and then immediately attempt to flip to other buyers. Rather, the properties we buy are either redeveloped by our construction teams, or, are held long-term and property managed in-house. As principals, when we buy directly from sellers, there are no commissions to pay.
