About Viking Companies
Viking Companies is an affiliated group of commercial real estate investment companies based in Seattle, Washington. Viking currently owns and manages a diverse portfolio of investment-grade commercial property, including commercial and medical office buildings, light industrial/warehouse facilities, neighborhood shopping centers and multi-family apartment complexes. Since 1996, Viking Companies has participated in the acquisition, funding and/or development of commercial real estate valued in excess of $500 million. Although we focus our resources principally on commercial investment property in the Puget Sound area, we have participated in projects throughout the state of Washington; in Oregon, California and Arizona; and in other selected areas of the United States.
Viking’s investment strategy focuses on the acquisition of improved property. Through a thoughtful approach to cost, financing and operations, we expect our investments to attain above-market cash flow returns and to achieve substantial appreciation over a reasonably forecasted holding period. Though we acquire all of our properties with the intent to hold them for the long term, we do sell or exchange our properties as and when necessary to maximize our overall return or to take advantage of longer term market trends.
