The Dakota Real Estate Investment Trust (The Dakota REIT) owns and manages commercial and residential rental properties throughout the upper Midwest. The strength and stability of the economy in the Dakotas is compatible with Dakota REIT's mission of returning a respectable dividend to our investors. Our investment strategy focuses on commercial and residential rental properties. We are governed by a Board of Trustees, most of whom are highly successful independent business people. Their professional knowledge, and insight into the real estate market, enables us to recognize sound investment opportunities. Most importantly, we have a team of seasoned and dedicated managers who have built and managed commercial and residential rental properties for more than 40 years. They know the real estate market and its potential for investment strategies and investment opportunities. Our mission is simple and straightforward: we offer diversification to our investors by acquiring and owning real estate that offers value and long-term growth.
