Washington Real Estate Investment Trust is a self-administered, self-managed REIT that focuses on income-producing commercial real estate properties, especially in the metropolitan Washington D.C geographical area.
They have operated in that area since their founding in 1960. Although they're not well diversified geographically, they are well diversified in types of property: office, medical office, industrial/flex space, retail and multifamily real estate investments. Their headquarters are in Rockville Maryland. Their New York Stock Exchange ticker symbol is WRE, but they also abbreviate their name as WRIT.
George "Skip" McKenzie is WRIT's president and CEO.
The Washington D.C. metro area is the fourth largest in the U.S., but always a strong one economically because it's the capital of the federal government. This has helped give them a lot of stability.
However, they also adopted the policy of renting to many small tenants rather than depend on one large tenant, which creates a big problem if that one tenant decides to leave.

Washington Real Estate Investment Trust (WRE) is well positioned to benefit from the continued growth of the federal government and in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area, which does include Maryland and Northern Virginia. It's well-diversified to benefit from all types of commercial real estate economic activity. However, it's not diversified geographically, which is a weakness. What if the terrorists ever succeed in setting off a nuclear weapon there? So long as that catastrophe never happens, this REIT should profit.
