Quality, Value and Integrity

Lennar International is a division of one of America’s largest homebuilders, Lennar Corporation (NYSE:LEN). Lennar International raises and directs foreign investments in Lennar through home sales and the United States’ EB-5 immigrant investor program and matches foreign capital with opportunities throughout the Lennar platform.

Lennar has established one of the largest geographically diverse real estate portfolios in the United States, including for sale homes, for rent homes and apartments, large master planned communities, commercial and other asset classes. Lennar is recognised as an intelligent underwriter of all manner of land positions and is a prolific purchaser, and seller, of land in the United States. The Lennar brand exemplifies our guiding principles - Quality. Value. Integrity.

Recently, Lennar International has become a beacon for foreign direct investment into the Lennar U.S. real estate eco-system, helping attract well over $4.5 billion across the platform over the last three years. Chris Marlin tells us more about his role within the organisation.

“I manage a team of incredibly intelligent, talented and hard-working people that now call North America home, but are originally from around the globe: China, Canada, Latin America, the Middle East and Europe as well as the U.S. In order to effectively communicate and appropriately react to global events, we constantly monitor the world’s geopolitical, economic and environmental status as well as what is happening with social issues, entertainment and sports. We have also created a global network of real estate professionals around the world who help us tell the Lennar story and keep us engaged in their countries.”

The firm’s success lies in the testimonies of its customers, who have nothing but praise for the company.

“We make the home buying and investment process as simple as possible” explains Chris. “Our team offers expertise in financing, guidance through the different laws and regulations foreign buyers face as well as being able to communicate in the buyer’s native language. We operate with complete transparency and integrity and our buyers and investors appreciate this level of service and professionalism.”

With regards to the future, Chris foretells both opportunities and challenges for the firm, and for the industry also.

“There is a lot of uncertainty about the world. We need to remind our partners and potential buyers that despite this uncertainty, the US offers endless reasons to invest in real estate, as long as you are investing with an experienced, consumer-oriented, transparent and highly regarded builder, co-investor, operator ... like Lennar. Lennar is happy to roll out the welcome mat for everyone.

“Disruption is around every corner - and on every phone. The way the U.S. real estate industry does business could be at the vanguard of the next great disruption. Lennar sees this as an opportunity to evolve rapidly to embrace the change that is inevitable in this industry -- and to lead our customers and investors into tomorrow’s realities, today.”

“However, Brand America is alive and well. The USA remains, and is expected to remain for a long time, the #1 destination for real estate capital, globally. And Lennar will continue to demonstrate why its core principles of quality, value and integrity make its platform the premier destination for US real estate investment.”
