About Robert Arbour

Robert Arbour has been engaged in a wide variety of real estate endeavors since 1979. Starting in leasing and sales to industrial and office occupants with the David Houston Company in New Jersey provided a base of “bricks and mortar” understanding of the business. After working as a property manager with a local New Jersey industrial property owner, he became the acquisition director for Pan American Properties, the British Coal Miners’ Pension Fund’s United States real estate program in New York. From 1983 until 1987, Mr. Arbour was a licensed broker in Texas.

Since 1988, Mr. Arbour has been a self-employed licensed real estate broker and advisor in California. He has completed a wide variety of real estate transactions, which sought to maximize property value with structured funding. He has consulted to NYSE and Fortune 500 companies; completed letter of credit backed lower floaters with and without collars; zero coupons residual value financing for corporate and individual needs; high leverage transactions for partnership issues; corporate structures involving a detailed understanding of accounting rules; loans with life companies, banks, thrifts, and conduits, as well as completing numerous 1031 exchanges.

Mr. Arbour has represented buyers and sellers, including Wachovia Securities, Sumitomo Mitsui Bank Leasing and Finance, CRIC Capital, Mesirow Net Lease, Fleetwood Enterprises, Zurich Structured Finance, American Retirement Corp., United Technologies, and numerous high net worth individuals. During the past 18 years, Mr. Arbour has been the president and sole shareholder of Triple Net Equities, Inc., which specializes in credit net leased real estate finance and sales. Mr. Arbour has successfully closed transactions with a total sales price of over $750,000,000. He has served as nominee owner for three properties acquired by Fleetwood.

In 2019, Mr. Arbour completed innovative funding of an energy installation for a Southern California office building that included a new white roof, solar with PVBooster trackers, new HVAC, and LED lighting. Jointly, these improvements should reduce the building’s electricity usage by 70%. The multi-faceted project capitalization of the energy installation was 100% funded with a fixed-rate 25-year PACE loan, while the building was refinanced with a new bridge loan. A proprietary solar lease and a roof lease allowed maximum financing, tax advantages, and sale flexibility. The structure permitted the reduced energy costs and maintenance savings to be reflected in NOI during the bridge loan term, thus allowing the building to be sold or permanently financed with more income. Additionally, Mr. Arbour advised the owner concerning lease negotiations that would permit these savings to be realized by the building owner, aligning the costs with the benefits.

Mr. Arbour has served as special manager for a pool of Walgreen Stores on behalf of Wachovia Securities. Also, Mr. Arbour has served as special manager for several unrelated single-member limited liability companies. The major rating agencies have approved Mr. Arbour as an independent manager.

Mr. Arbour has been a member of the Urban Land Institute Los Angeles District Council for more than 25 years. He was the founding chairperson and organizer of the two most significant annual events that the organization holds, Urban Marketplace and FutureBuild. He is a graduate of Pennsylvania State University and holds a master’s degree from Rutgers University.
