Updated: Feb 18, 2021

Altamonte Springs, FL, Release: December 2, 2020. For Immediate Release

After 8 years of private consulting for commercial developers, primarily focused in self storage, owner Rob DaRos has officially launched Maple Row Real Estate Advisors, LLC. Located in Westchester County, New York, Rob has served clients in various states including Florida, North Carolina, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey and Colorado. Through Maple Row Real Estate, they will be providing services to the national CRE market.

Owner Rob DaRos’ professional expertise includes the accumulation of vast portfolios for his clients and project management with commercial developers for 8 years. His industry expertise includes advisory services, operations management and real estate appraisals. Prior to that, he spent 10 years with GE Capital Real Estate, where focused on debt and equity portfolio underwriting and key risk platforms and initiatives. Most recently DaRos has been acting as the Commercial Real Estate Appraiser for the City of Stamford, Connecticut preparing support for large tax appeal and litigation cases for property values between $75 million and $350 million.

Rob DaRos mentions, “Once a new client has identified an opportunity, regardless of its size, structure or complexity, it is always tempting to dive right in, review the opportunity and its financials, then attempt to provide meaningful opinions and recommendations. However, it’s vital to have a trusted expert to first understand the client’s vision, growth aspirations and risk tolerance. With Maple Row, we will undoubtedly build mutual trust, save time and money, reduce frustrating disconnects, foster productive business relationships, and produce results.”

Maple Row intends to focus on small, high net worth self storage investors and developers seeking to expand either through development, acquisition, or adaptive reuse. They work closely with clients to locate deals, optimize lease-up, streamline operations, and arrange debt and equity financing. The company aims to provide the expert guidance and insight required to make sound, well-informed go/no-go decisions by conducting comprehensive reviews for all deal types and structures. They vet and qualify lenders with optimal loan terms, ensure unit mix optimization and effective lease-up strategies, perform advanced cash flow modeling and stress testing.

CEO of The Storage Group, Steve Lucas states, “We’ve had the pleasure of working with Rob for over 5 years now with one of our clients that’s experienced substantial portfolio growth. He has been our primary contact with our client and was responsible for initially sourcing out service needs and found us,” Lucas said. “Rob is incredibly forward thinking and is consistently on top of growth potential for his clients. We’re excited for his official launch into the self storage space with Maple Row Real Estate Advisors.”
