Home - About Us

The Meritage Properties formula is straightforward – combine disciplined underwriting metrics, best in class operating principles, outstanding business reputation and ethics, and an unwavering commitment to excellence to create value across market cycles. We possess the skill and depth of experience to acquire and operate stabilized Trophy and Class A properties, though our core competencies are best applied along the Core Plus through Opportunistic spectrum, having established a well-respected expertise at repositioning and rebranding challenged mid-sized properties.

Meritage Properties’ mission:

  • generate compelling risk-adjusted returns to our partners
  • create outstanding environments to our tenants
  • set the standard by which comparable properties are judged

Since inception, Meritage has acquired approximately 3.7 million square feet of office space and 500 residential units primarily along the Boston to Washington, D.C. corridor. Our focus on a handful of dynamic and complementary metropolitan markets, combined with our intensely hands-on approach, reinforces the development of deep local market knowledge and the fostering of particularly close community relationships.

Meritage has always been envisioned as a new-era firm that embraces hard work and traditional values, bringing together a proprietary approach to financial analytics, cutting edge reporting systems and an entrepreneurially-biased yet institutional-quality mind-set. We are at the core a firm built around intellectual capital, and the brand we have created over the past 14 years reflects the dedication and experience of a small but nimble group of supremely talented real estate professionals, each with a complementary set of core competencies who contribute different perspectives leading to a shared vision. Working together as a highly coordinated team, we possess the capability to respond quickly and effectively to seize market opportunities and resolve issues as they arise.

New Heights Intern Program

Meritage Properties actively supports New Heights Youth, Inc., an independent non-profit educational organization based in New York City. New Heights’ mission is to “educate and empower promising inner-city youth to be leaders, champions, and student-athletes by developing the skills necessary for success in high school, college and life.” We are proud to be associated with an organization that boasts a 100% high school graduation rate, 98% college matriculation rate and 75% college graduation rate since its formation 11 years ago. In late 2007, Meritage initiated a summer internship program for New Heights students offering 1-2 students each summer an opportunity to get practical work experience and better prepare for future professional careers. All of our past interns have graduated college and are currently employed in a variety of fields including education, finance, media, sports marketing, and insurance. Andy Nathan serves as Vice Chair of the Board of Directors of New Heights. To learn more about or make a contribution to New Heights please visit: http://www.newheightsnyc.org/.
