“We are delighted to be working with our new partners on these projects,” Bob Clark, President at Peak Campus Management said.  “This particular portfolio further expands our management platform in the one of the largest markets in the country, and we are confident that our partners’ planned improvements to the products, coupled with Peak Campus’ management strategy, will do well in creating a world-class housing opportunity for students at Florida State University.  Furthermore, this large portfolio transition, the closing of which took place the day before the annual turnover process began, further cements Peak Campus’ capabilities in taking on complex assignments in high pressure situations.”

Benjamin MacFarland, Partner at Collegium said, “In order for Collegium to execute on a portfolio of this size and complexity, which involved a complete management overhaul, we required a best-in-class student housing property manager.  Peak stood out as the right choice and had the resources to put the boots on the ground and systems in place prior to our closing.”
