Director – Research & Communications Katie Fidler with St. Bourke joins the Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio podcast to talk about land development post-COVID, popular community amenities and build-to-rent. Fidler joins host Carol Morgan on the All About Real Estate segment.
A native Atlantan, Fidler has lived in the Peach State her entire life and has been actively participating in the Atlanta real estate market for over 10 years. She graduated from the University of Georgia in 2011 and has held various positions throughout her career, from commercial and office leasing to investment and development.
An asset management and development company, St. Bourke is headquartered in Atlanta and serves as a one-stop shop for all asset management and development needs. The company’s services cover the full gamut, starting with the project’s funding, due diligence and acquisition to planning and development to the very end with ongoing place management.
Fidler said, “We really complete that full cycle. We are experts in value engineering, unlocking hidden value, problem-solving, troublesome sites [and much more!] We like to come in and reinvigorate them and breathe new life into them.”
Founded in 2005, St. Bourke is associated with an international investment firm that entered the United States market shortly after the Great Recession. The firm acquired a considerable property portfolio and ran across issues coordinating multiple teams in various markets to manage those assets. Those teams were brought in-house to form what would eventually become St. Bourke. Click here to learn more about the founding of St. Bourke!
The company has unique origins and views each project through an investment lens, forging a niche for St. Bourke in a market undergoing incredible change. How the company approaches development paired with it suite of services sets it apart from the competition in the eyes of its clients.
Fidler said, “We do have a lot of investor clients, homebuilders, banks, private property owners – we serve many different segments of the market but certainly investment firms and homebuilders are our top two.”
Following the slowdown of the pandemic, costs and the importance of keeping costs down is more prevalent than ever before. St. Bourke has always set about planning and value engineering every site. With increasing land prices and tighter builder margins, the company is searching for ways to thoughtfully and creatively bring prices down to deliver affordable homes.
Another change Fidler noted is the noticeable ramp-up of construction and residential development further from the urban core.
