Two Kings Co-Hosts Blockchain + Real Estate Panel Discussion

Two Kings co-hosted one of the world’s first in-depth discussions on the application of blockchain technology to the real estate industry.

The panel consisted of leading experts from the industry, including brokerage, banking, law and title insurance, as well as the founders of several startups focused on employing blockchain technology in real estate transactions and data.

The discussion ranged from the transformative aspects of blockchain technology to the obstacles and challenges of achieving widespread adoption by an old-fashioned industry.

Nest Seekers’ Ryan Serhant, of Million Dollar Listing, reminded the audience that New York City real estate has long been viewed as a safe store of value for fiat currencies, much like a cryptocurrency.

The event was co-hosted with the Asian Real Estate Association of America.

Two Kings Launches Empire Holdings: NYC-Focused Investment Vehicle

Two Kings announces the launch of Empire Holdings, its vehicle for investing in the superior long-term potential of real estate in the New York City area.

  • Empire Holdings targets high-quality properties in New York City area with opportunities to increase cash flow and value over time
  • Empire Holdings benefits from a seed portfolio of existing apartment and mixed-use buildings, allowing for greater efficiency with acquisitions and operations
  • The structure provides for tax-efficient distributions and is positioned to benefit from the recent US tax reform
  • Longer holding periods allows for optimization of total portfolio return by maximizing value extracted from assets and re-deploying sale proceeds via tax-deferred exchanges

Empire Holdings aims to produce consistent dividends while maximizing the overall return of the portfolio by increasing cash flow, capturing appreciation and compounding gains through tax-deferred exchanges of sale proceeds. 

Two Kings created the holding company in response to the principals’ desire for regular distributions from a stable of high-quality assets with strong growth prospects. The holding company was launched with a portfolio of existing properties generating current income and with significant future upside. Two Kings is actively seeking new acquisitions to expand the portfolio.

The holding company structure benefits from recent changes to the US tax code, including additional deductions on pass-thru income and capital investment. Two Kings believes this is consistent with policy goals of encouraging reinvestment into local communities.

As with every investment, Two Kings maintains a rigorous approach to acquisitions by seeking properties with multiple triggers for creating value and above-average appreciation. This approach is underscored by a willingness to exhibit patience with assets that still have untapped potential.

Parties with suitable acquisition opportunities are encouraged to contact Two Kings at
