We caught up with Ben Appleby with Dogwood Commercial based in Dallas, Texas to discuss the value of vertical integration, the common practice some value add office acquirers fall into of not executing their plan (if they have one at all) immediately upon acquisition and the dangers involved with it and many other topics related to investing in suburban office with a value add strategy.
