Hello again realty-ga,
I?m glad you decided that the information on small-cap public
companies in the real estate sector would meet your needs. They are a
valuable source of information, since SEC reporting requirements
provide a wealth of information on their finances and corporate
I?ve listed below some additional real estate firms with revenues in
the same ballpark as we discussed earlier. I?ve also included a brief
description of the company?s operations, and executive salaries.
Several of the firms have an unusual (to me, anyway) structure whereby
their key executives receive minimal or no salaries, but fees are paid
to a person or organization listed as an ?Advisor? -- these often
appear to be fees in lieu of salary. Where this is the case, I?ve
provided details on the Advisor?s compensation.
I hope this is the information you need. If anything here is unclear
-- or if you simply need additional information -- just let me know by
posting a Request for Clarification, and I?ll be happy to assist you
