WHO WE ARE (KENT CIRCLE INVESTMENTS)

The Seldin family legacy began in the late forties. It all started when Millard Seldin’s father, Ben Seldin, posted $500 as collateral to secure a construction and FHA loan to build their first spec house on a vacant lot in West Council Bluffs, Iowa. – The two men made for a fantastic team, Millard would handle the construction and Ben managed the sales process.

They moved their company to Omaha in 1958 after acquiring multiple farms (ultimately over 1000 acres) along West Center Road, which was later master-planned into the Westwood and Montclair communities. These subdivisions played a big part in the migration and growth of West Omaha.

Millard Seldin formed several companies and was the founding member of the family owned Seldin Development and Management Company. The company grew through well-calculated investing based on strict risk management principles. The philosophy early on was to establish a timetable for diversification, which empowered the company to go on to build over 3,000 homes, 3,900 apartments, 1.5 million square feet of commercial property and 5 hotels.

In 1990, Millard Seldin co-founded Southwest Value Partners (SVP) in Scottsdale, AZ - a private real estate investment firm. SVP’s contrarian investment strategy enabled them to buy apartments, land and over 30% of downtown San Diego’s Class A office market in the mid-nineties during the Resolution Trust Company (RTC).

In 2000, after separating from partners in Omaha, Millard and his son Scott Seldin formed Seldin Real Estate, Inc. based in Scottsdale, AZ. They currently invest in and operate a diverse real estate portfolio spread across the United States through Kent Circle Investments Kent Circle Investments, LLC was formed in 2002 as the investment platform for the next generation of the Seldin Family and focuses mainly on properties located in the Southwest region.
