Who we are, and what is
DH Holdings, Inc. about?
D.H. Holdings, Inc. started in 2002 as a California corporation. At the time, its founding President David Horenstein was working with Regency Centers as a Senior Development Manager when Mr. Horenstein had acquired a few residential/apartment properties in Southern California and Las Vegas.
After working within Corporate America since 1997, Including Insignia ESG and Regency Centers until the beginning of 2003, David Horenstein realized that Larger Companies are great, but sometimes not as nimble as when they started out as smaller companies. So, in 2002 David Horenstein started DH Holdings, Inc., a California corporation in order to create a different type of Real Estate Company. One that combines, all of the winning principals that leading Companies posses yet still being in touch with the fundamentals needed to make it during difficult times such as downturns typically found in Real Estate Cycles.
After working on several projects in Texas, Las Vegas, and California and teaming up with experienced like minded individuals within the industry, DH Holdings, Inc. has a goal to build an asset base of over $2.5 Billion by 2028 by continuing to build, establish, maintain great relationships amongst the Country’s finest professionals! The best way they know how to do this is through winning principals that are the cornerstone to success or as we call it here at DH Holdings, Inc. the“Fundamentals of Success”. We close most of the transactions and p/s agreements we enter into and have a great working relationship with Banks, Cities, retailors, Tenants, and Vendors throughout the industry!
Winning principals although should be obvious to many, some of these principals can be listed separately as examples:
- Great Communication
- Working hard
- No Excuses
- Love what you do
- Treat people the way you wish to be treated
- Have fun!
The majority of Mr. Horenstein’s career and expertise was in the field of retail shopping centers. D. H. Holdings, Inc. started to receive management fees, development fees and passive income from these initial investments. In 2003, when Mr. Horenstein’s current employer passed up on a commercial opportunity in the County of Riverside, D. H. Holdings, Inc. decided to pursue its first Commercial Development now known as “The Shops at Bear Creek”. Because of the work over the past 4 years that Mr. Horenstein had completed with Regency and Insignia and the good relationships that had been established with the brokerage community in South Riverside County, the owners of the property and Seller Broker believed in Mr. Horenstein and allowed D. H. Holdings, Inc. to enter into a long enough escrow to let the project make financial sense. The Shops at Clinton Keith was the first opportunity D. H. Holdings, Inc. received that established itself as a “Commercial Development” company. During the next 4 years, D. H. Holdings, Inc.’s goal was to develop, manage, lease, acquire, and fee develop commercial properties in Southern California. In addition between 2005 and 2006, D.H. Holdings, Inc. had acquired two (2) condo conversion opportunities in West Hollywood, California and Austin, Texas. These projects are currently in development stage.
D.H. Holdings, Inc. works with many aspects of the private and public investor communities for equity sources which assists in funding its current and future projects. In addition, Mr. Horenstein is on the advisory board of First Commerce Bank (a commercial lending bank located in Los Angeles, California).
