What We Do

NREA’s comprehensive services include site discovery, feasibility analysis, land-use planning, entitlements, public infrastructure and private equity financing, transaction structuring, and development, construction and operation management. The combined skills of the NREA principals assure the ability to offer seasoned oversight of any stage of a project across all product types.

NREA’s key differentiator is the combination of experience in private development, financing, and general management and its application to corporate and public real estate environments. We bring the perspective of a private development principal/owner to the tenant/user side of the equation. The result is a sense of urgency and the focused management of decision making and project progress often lacking in large institutions or the public sector.

“Newell Real Estate Advisors was instrumental in devising a creative public/private financing solution to allow several leading arts organizations to be able to collaborate and join together into one building in Martha Gardens near downtown San Jose. This opportunity would not have been possible if it were not for Wei Chiu’s expertise and know how in such matters.”
