What started as an idea in 2004, grew into Campus Crest Communities, the second largest student housing platform in the world, totalling 83 locations, 51,000 beds, and over 2.4b in assets, all within 10 years of its inception.
Today, built on a trail already blazed, this same team of seasoned pioneers - boasting in excess of 150 years in real estate banking, investing, development, construction and management across three continents - is changing the niche housing landscape again with multinational interests in both senior and student markets.
"OUR MISSION IS TO GROW COMMUNITY THROUGH AGGREGATING A PORTFOLIO OF PURPOSE-BUILT NICHE HOUSING IN DIVERSE MARKETS."
The Valeo Mantra: Work hard. Have fun. Help others.
Valeo continues to build on a legacy of attractive, quality products in high-growth markets with one mantra: Work hard. Have fun. Help others.
Built within the grain of our company’s structure, working hard, having fun and helping others are all intrinsically bound to create a prosperous life … whether a resident, team member, or stakeholder. Because we believe that when we build with purpose together, together we will prosper.
“We believe in a business philosophy that balances economic success with social and environmental stewardship. We don’t just build buildings, we grow communities. This makes Valeo’s bottom-line threefold: People, Planet and Prosperity.”
- Ted W. Rollins, Founding Partner & Executive Chairman
Valeo focuses on delivering more than a place to live, but on developing a lifestyle for each resident through a branded hospitality model that adds value to the learning and living experience for its student and senior residents. Each property is purposefully designed to cultivate friendships, social opportunities and meaningful outreach projects through state-of-the-art facilities and community-centric amenities.
The idea remains simple: To build better, live better and do better. These principles, along with a legacy of “purpose-built” innovation, have set Valeo’s foundation for investment and development strategies, community and environmental initiatives, as well as its commitment to one other.
The result? A compounding effect of Valeo communities, universities and financial partners who not only make a positive impact on his or her environment, but who leave it better than they found it.
Driving value for stakeholders from the ground up.
Valeo is built on a vertically integrated platform that offers control over every part of the investment process, resulting in reduced cost, increased efficiency, improved operating logistics, and, ultimately, a better value – and experience – for stakeholders.
From development to asset management, vertical integration creates a continuing and compounding knowledge for team members and stakeholders at every level so that the opportunity to learn, evolve, repeat or change is always under, and part of, Valeo.
It’s strategic. It’s predictable. And, most importantly, it’s successful.
