Beginning in 1995, Day Cable and Joe Simmons created limited partnerships to capitalize on the commercial real estate purchase opportunities throughout the Texas market. Since then, these partnerships have purchased fourteen properties ranging from multi-tenant and single-tenant office buildings to raw land. The purchases have ranged in price from $500,000 to $2.3M.


Our decision to purchase commercial real estate is based on our curated criteria set.

This criterion includes, but is not limited to:


  • Low per-square-foot prices

  • Knowledge of market trends and growth patterns

  • Property is undervalued due to a lack of “hands-on” management and leasing functions, as well as the need to improve appearance and functionality. Purchases have been made under limited partnership agreements, involving a combination of investors who are business associates, family members, and friends. In all partnership agreements, Day Cable and Joe Simmons have invested their personal funds in addition to serving as general partners.


The intent of these partnerships is not only to create value within the property, but also to return equity and/or profit either through cash flow, refinancing, or sales. Our emphasis is placed upon ensuring that the investment is sound and is working in the shortest time frame possible. Partnership structures are designed to return equity and preferred returns before any other profits are distributed. The majority of the limited partners have remained the same since the beginning of our venture. We intend to continue purchasing commercial properties when and if sound opportunities arise.


Outlined below is a summary of our recent purchases, including bank references and seller contact information.
