History of Ari-El Enterprises, Inc.
Four Decades of Leadership
Ari-El Enterprises, Inc. was established in 1979 by Arie Leibovitz with a focus on the acquisition, development and management of real estate investment properties.
Over the years, the company has prospered through the rise and fall of the markets, surviving the turbulent tides of the past 36 years that left so many in its wake. Today, Mr. Leibovitz along his son Scott have a team of talented professionals who are experts in their respective fields.
Ari-El Enterprises operates a diverse portfolio in excess of three million square feet which incorporates industrial parks, office buildings, retail centers, apartment communities, free standing buildings and land for build-to-suit.
The properties are primarily concentrated in the four county suburban Detroit area of southeastern Michigan.

A Consistent Focus
The acquisition or development of a profitable real estate venture demands a series of highly complex, interrelated decisions in which not only bricks and mortar must be recognized, but elements such as marketing, operations and financing must be considered simultaneously.
The ability to implement and control the total picture has been paramount to the company’s continuing leadership.
Few firms have integrated the skills, quality and ownership staying power to make it all work. Indeed, Ari-El Enterprises knows real estate from the ground up.
Seizing Opportunity for Growth
Valuable experience gained by operating profitably and creatively through varying market cycles has taught the Leibovitz’s how to build a company with a long-term point of view.
Today, the company is a much stronger business enterprise and an industry leader exceptionally well positioned for accelerated growth, now and long into the future. Extraordinary instincts and an entrepreneurial spirit are carefully balanced while minimizing risk for investors and partners.
Above all, the company has a proven ability to recognize a market’s potential and structure financing to maximize benefits.

Maximizing Real Estate Values
The acquisition of a substantial real estate portfolio is a prolonged and challenging undertaking. Making the assets work is just as challenging, and certainly deserves no less planning.
Ari-El Enterprises’ asset management team is focused on determining exactly how the company’s current holdings can be used most efficiently in view of current and projected real estate trends.
It is the formulation of a workable and realistic strategy for achieving goals over an extended time period. In every case, the goal is to achieve maximum capital appreciation in the shortest period of time, while ensuring long-term investment value.
Strategies for the Future
Ari-El Enterprises is proud of its accomplishments over the past three decades and is positioned to anticipate and act upon new opportunities and market trends. The company is well capitalized thanks to many long-standing relationships with investors and lenders.
Furthermore, immediately after a property is acquired, Ari-El has all the in-house resources required to protect and enhance the value of the asset over the long term.
Today, the company is aggressively seeking opportunities to expand its portfolio through the acquisition of new investments. Above all, Ari-El Enterprises is committed to well-paced, controlled growth which yields long-term benefits for valued clients and joint venture partners.

Acquiring under performing properties in prime locations and converting them into their highest and best use is a key element of Ari-El Enterprises’ strategic vision.
This unique mixed-use development demonstrates the company’s outstanding creativity. When acquired, the property originally housed a shopping center and movie theater. Today, Kingswood Plaza has been expanded and reshaped to form a first-class two-story office building and retail center of 117,000 square feet.
The movie theater was converted to a one-story office building. Later down the road, the office building was expanded by adding a second story. Not only did this elevate the character of the building but it also enhanced the overall value of the entire development.
By employing progressive development in phases and working with a keen sense of a property’s full potential, this change-of-use has generated continuous strong returns to investors.
