HC Government Realty Trust, Inc., a Regulation A real estate investment trust that invests in federally-leased properties, has hired Elise Liftin as its real estate portfolio manager.
Liftin has more than three decades of commercial property management experience with a focus on the federal government real estate space.
In her new role as real estate portfolio manager, she will oversee operations, financial management, and tenant improvement projects. She will focus on maximizing the revenue and operating performance of each property, while delivering services to federal government tenants. Liftin will be based at the company’s Sarasota, Florida headquarters.
“Elise’s unique experience and proactive approach makes her the right person to optimize the performance of our assets and satisfy our tenants’ needs,” said Edwin Stanton, co-founder, director, and CEO. “Her specialized industry know-how of managing more than half a billion square feet of federal government leased facilities across 20 properties and occupied by a diverse mix of agencies, should prove invaluable to our current and growing portfolio.”
Before joining the company, Liftin was senior property manager at Aeroterm, a nationwide owner and manager of property at airports and similar facilities.
She previously served as senior regional manager at Trigild, a national commercial property manager, and as property/project manager for JFK/IAT LLC which handled a facilities development at New York’s JFK airport.
Liftin was also a former director of office assets at CB Richard Ellis, the world’s largest commercial real estate services and investment firm. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Iona College.

HC Government Realty Trust was formed in 2016 and oversees a portfolio of 13 properties occupied by federal agencies, including the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Social Security Administration, and the Department of Transportation. The company is externally managed and advised by Holmwood Capital Advisors LLC and raised $5.9 million in investor equity as of November 2017, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
