The O’Donnell Group has the experience, specialized knowledge and market presence to recognize the growth in ecommerce and translate that directly to successfully invest in some of the most compelling deals in industrial real estate.

Experience

The firm has over 40 years of experience investing, paying dividends and profiting on the sale of industrial buildings through every type of market cycle. The first O’Donnell development partnership was created in 1972, and since then, The O’Donnell Group has developed or acquired over 22 million square feet of industrial and office business parks throughout the U.S. The O’Donnell Group is a fully integrated operator with institutional quality accounting, asset management, property management and leasing.

Since 1996, The O’Donnell Group has owned and managed approximately 750,000 square feet of industrial space and 85 acres of land for future development across the United States. Over the years, The O’Donnell Group has consistently been ranked among the top developers in the State of California.

The global financial crisis of 2008 created havoc in the stock and bond market, as well as many sectors of the real estate market. Still, industrial real estate emerged relatively unscathed. There were no loan bankruptcies in O'Donnell industrial portfolio – none.

Really very disappointed with this sponsor.  I am in their Opportunity Fund V, which really isn't much of a fund, since it has only 2 investments (I was under the impression it was supposed to be 3-5).   Communication is very poor with no details on why distributions are falling significantly under projections (after a year they are at 5.6% versus preferred of 10%) even though they are leased up??!!!

I was invested in The Phoenix Industrial Opportunity offering which closed on 12/30/2015. It was eventually exitted on 6/30/2017. In 1.5 years, the return was 40% with a IRR of 25%, which was close to the projected IRR of 26.9%. Overall, very happy with the results of the investment. Timely communication was lacking, as mentioned by others.

Great Niche, background and track record.  If they hire a PR firm to handle all the investors Q&A they would likely do better with crowdfunding.  Try getting a straight answer from O'Donnell himself .. it will drive you insane.   Too early to tell how the returns with them will be in the fund.. but, doubt I will ever invest with them again.

I rated O'Donnell as my #1 sponsor before I invested with them due to their excellent track record. Unfortunately, their communication has become more of a problem. It is not easy to get an answer from Doug, but at the beginning he did respond. More recently he and his team did not respond to me for more than a couple of weeks, which made me uncomfortable. I am rating it lower!

To sum it up succintly: they have a good niche, seem to know their markets well, don't really communicate much, charge well for their services,not much skin in the game on deals.

Returns is what prob. keeps investors with them is my guess
