Unlocking value for our clients by improving the college experience for our customers.

XFD focuses on the acquisition/management of undermanaged assets (recently-developed or otherwise) in temporarily depressed markets, and creating value through intensive operational turnarounds and capital improvements, in order to generate attractive returns on exit. In the process we eliminate friction between residents and ownership, which allows our residents to focus on what really matters—their education.

XFD takes a well-rounded approach to acquiring student housing assets, from value-add opportunities with significant capex needs and operational turnaround plays for recent builds, to Core Plus assets with stable in-place cash flows that offer opportunities for outsized growth for the right operator.

Our team of proven Student Housing Operations experts is experienced with everything from repositioning distressed assets to delivering brand new Class A developments. Our roll-up-your-sleeves approach is a defining quality, core to our decision-making process.


Based on a wealth of experience in real world problem-solving, marketing, and management, XFD offers a range of bespoke third-party management services which will provide the guidance your property needs and the focus it deserves.
