BH Properties Adds Regional Office in San Francisco
BH Properties, a vertically integrated, value-add real estate investment company, has opened a new regional office in San Francisco. The firm has appointed real estate investment veteran Peter Horn as managing director of acquisitions to lead its Bay Area growth strategy.
“We have been looking for opportunities to expand our operational presence in the Bay Area for quite some time, and our recent acquisitions of Anchorage Square and the 60-acre former campus of Holy Names University in Oakland presented a great opportunity to do just that,” said Jim Brooks, president of Los Angeles-based BH Properties. “Peter is an opportunistic investor who has the expertise and relationships to uncover new opportunities throughout Northern California.”
Horn joins BH Properties after serving as partner and head of investments for San Francisco-based Soma Capital Partners, where he spent 11 years sourcing, structuring and closing value-add investments with follow-on responsibilities that included financing, asset management and dispositions. Over the course of his career, he has completed more than $1 billion in transaction volume in both GP and LP positions.
Paul Bubny serves as Senior Content Director for Connect Commercial Real Estate, a role to which he brings 16-plus years’ experience covering the commercial real estate industry and 30-plus years in business-to-business journalism. In this capacity, he oversees daily operations while also reporting on both local/regional markets and national trends, covering individual transactions across all property types, as well as delving into broader subject matter. He produces 7-10 daily news stories per day and works with the Connect team and clients to develop longer-form content, ranging from Q&As to thought-leadership pieces.
Prior to joining Connect, Paul was Managing Editor for both Real Estate Forum and GlobeSt.com at American Lawyer Media, where he oversaw operations at both publications while also producing daily news and feature-length articles. His tenure in B2B publishing stretches back into the print era, and he has served as Editor in Chief on four national trade publications.
Since 1999, Paul has volunteered as the newsletter editor of passenger rail advocacy groups (one national, one local).
