Experience, Creativity, Integrity & Hard Work
Meriwether was co-founded by Joel Aslanian and Robert Briscoe. The company started in Seattle in 2002, and Robert opened the Portland office in 2012. Brian Oseran joined the Seattle office in 2011 and became a Principal in 2015.
Real estate is a local business, and we understand the nuances of the markets we live and work in. We adhere to our strategy by investing primarily in Seattle and Portland. Our local knowledge is strengthened by years of collective capital markets expertise and hands-on asset management and development experience.
Experience, hard work, creativity and integrity are critical to our success. These core values affect how we treat our tenants and our investors. Tenant retention begins at lease commencement, not at renewal. Our loyal investor base is built on aligning financial interests, transparent reporting, and making well-informed investments that exceed risk-return expectations. We are committed to the people and processes that make us successful.
Meriwether is responsible for each decision during the lifecycle of an investment, including acquisition or development, financing, accounting, management, leasing, capital improvements, and disposition. Our hands-on approach is supported by longstanding relationships with best-in-class architects, attorneys, contractors, lenders, brokers, and property managers.
