In , Founder created Plaintiff as an investment vehicle for individuals seeking to avoid active management of their real estate holdings.
The vehicle would allow investors to sell to a larger entity and buy interests in that entity as tenants in common.

Three other individuals owned the remaining interests and, in January , these minority owners agreed, as the Operating Group, to provide the operational management of Plaintiff.
