It was in 2003 that Jeffrey Pechter created The Mindful Capital Group. He did so after a successful career in commercial real estate. The name says it all, Mindful manages with the philosophy of “What is good for their partners, is good for them.” With a total of 50 years in the property management business, it taught Pechter the principles of what it takes to operate in different economic conditions. Then the ability to create value within those conditions. And most importantly, to never merely accept change, but create it.
Since the company’s inception in 2003, the Mindful Capital Group and Pechter have acquired and developed more than 2.2 million square feet of commercial real estate. The acquisitions were primarily in the self-storage sector. In 2016, Mindful successfully completed a sale of most of its storage portfolio for very healthy gains.
This included 27 properties exceeding 1.5 million square feet across Florida, North Carolina, and Maryland. After the portfolio sale, the company shifted its focus to the acquisition of “Value-Add Industrial” and “Flex properties”. Over the past three years, MCG has successfully completed fifteen acquisitions of Small-Bay Industrial and Flex assets totaling more than 625,000 square feet in Palm Beach and Broward counties.
