The Capital Assets Story


Capital Assets, Inc. was founded in 1979 by Royce Wright. Prior to that, Mr. Wright was the Property Manager for Lincoln Property Company, and The Hardesty Company in Tulsa, managing approximately 1,500 units for each company. The assignment in the early 70’s was to lease new properties, with the emphasis on marketing and leasing.

Since 1979, the emphasis has been managing mostly existing properties, with the emphasis on adding value, through renovation, and or management philosophy. The company started with a portfolio of one 120-unit property and by the end of the year, it grew to 551 units consisting of 5 properties. Within five years, the company grew to 1,872 units consisting of 22 properties. The largest portfolio managed by Capital Assets came in the spring of 2007 totaling 5,200 units. Presently, the company manages approximately 4,300 units.

The company philosophy has been to work with a select group of individual partners and investors, on specific property investments, so as to maintain focus on detail and profitability. Our goals are to maximize profitability, to seize the opportunity to sell the properties when the market has reached its peak and reinvest this money into other properties. We have worked for banks, life companies, 501-C3’s, foundations, and many investment groups. Also, we have partnered with numerous investor groups, and some S&L’s in the 80’s.
