About

Principles

At Visiquest, we are not interested in being the biggest. Instead we focus our attention on a limited number of projects that meet our value-add and opportunistic criteria.

We gravitate to projects that require vision, determination and intellectual challenge. These projects endeavor to be sensitive to their environment and make a sustainable positive impact on the communities they serve.

We take pride in the quality of our work and our relationships with vendors, contractors, employees, investors, lenders and customers. Consequently, we seek to associate ourselves with bright, talented and pleasant professionals who share our vision and passion.

We seek to maximize returns and minimize risk in a transparent and ethical manner. We employ conservative financial principles with the goal of under-promising and over-performing.

We treat others with respect, fairness and integrity. To quote Will Rogers, “It takes a lifetime to build a good reputation, but you can lose it in a minute.”
