Investment Properties


Beginning in 1995, Day Cable, along with Joe Simmons, created limited partnerships in an effort to capitalize on the purchase opportunities in the commercial real estate market throughout the State of Texas. Since that time, these partnerships have purchased fourteen properties ranging from multi-tenant and single tenant office buildings to raw land. Our purchases have ranged in price from $500,000.00 to 2.3 million dollars.


When making a commercial real estate purchase, we have based our decisions primarily on a certain set of criteria. This criteria includes but is not limited to:


  • low per square foot prices
  • knowledge of market trends and growth patterns
  • property is under valued due to lack of “hands on” management and leasing functions, as well as
  • the need to improve appearance and functionality. Purchases have been made under limited partnership agreements, involving a combination of investors who are business associates, family members, and friends. In all partnership agreements, Day Cable and Joe Simmons have invested their personal funds in addition to serving as general partners.


The intent of these partnerships is not only to create value within the property, but also to return equity and/or profit either through cash flow, refinancing, or sales. Our emphasis is placed upon ensuring that the investment is sound and is working in the shortest time frame possible. Partnership structures are designed to return equity and preferred returns before any other profits are distributed. The majority of the limited partners have remained the same since the beginning of our venture. We intend to continue purchasing commercial properties when and if sound opportunities arise.
