Consistent with my philosophy I often collaborate with a variety of industry professionals such as lawyers, bankers, investors and real estate brokers to accomplish the goals of my clients.
Here's what some industry professionals I've collaborated with have to say:
During the span of my career I have had the pleasure of working with Steven Schulman on various retail real estate projects. Steven is a best-in-class asset manager who upholds with true sincerity the obligations of trust and fiduciary responsibility. Steven sets the bar very high, conceiving of a strategy to optimize returns and then procuring a proven team of service providers he will then direct to execute his strategy. Enjoying challenges and detailed work, Steven is a highly creative deal maker who likes complex transactions, whether a ground up development project, a seismic retrofit of a 100 year old building, or the sorting out of a ‘drifting’ real estate portfolio to improve financial performance for his client. Steven works to exacting standards, he gives his all to his clients and demands the same of those he hires to help him on an assignment. I highly endorse Steven Schulman and truly look forward to the next time we are able to collaborate.
Executive Vice President
Retail Services group
I worked directly with Steven on a private banking team serving high-net worth clients in the Pebble Beach market. Steven is an excellent real estate asset manager who always has his client’s best interests in mind. Steven also has a very good understanding on the interplay between real estate and the liquid assets in a client’s
portfolio. He has worked his entire career as a fiduciary and understands the intricacies of the fiduciary standard in real estate asset management.

Senior Investment Strategist
Wells Fargo Private Bank
Steven and I have shared a cordial and mutually beneficial professional relationship for 20 years.
Our association began during Steven’s tenure with Wells Fargo Bank’s Wealth Management Group in Los Angeles.
Among Steven’s many skills are:
His ability to gauge/comprehend his clients’ goals and strategies and then implement them. In this respect, Steven is adept at collaborating with clients’ outside professionals.
Given the depth of his income property experience, Steven excels in coordinating with, and understanding property operational methodologies and issues.
Though able to comprehend micro operation issues, Steven is skilled in applying that micro knowledge to the overall portfolio goals of his clients’ varied product types, providing his clients with competent advice for decision making.
Despite his institutional CV, Steven relates well to the non-institutional investor, the small family office and families with inherited real estate wealth. Steven is a well-known and trusted fiduciary with his clients’ best interests at the forefront of his advice and counsel.
Steven is a trusted and ‘trustable’ professional who takes his duties seriously.
It is easy to recite Steven’s strengths and the reasons you will be rewarded for your selection of him as your advisor. However, mere professional qualifications do not emanate from a person who does not hold the same personal beliefs.
To that end, Steven is:
Calm and adaptive under pressure
Highly sensitive to the relevance of his reactions to the situation at hand
Quickly able to analyze and resolve fluid situations as they are presented (maintaining that calmness throughout)
Intrinsically capable of focusing on details of the moment and their relevance to the end goals
Always professional in demeanor and presentation
Not distracted by institutional hierarchies
Although I can continue this list, I view one trait above all others: You will find Steven of the utmost integrity.
