Resources like time, organizational efforts and materials require efficient management in order to achieve greater outputs. Every organization need to reduce waste in these resources to the minimum possible so as to produce high quality services and products. The real estate industry has been evolving overtime from the traditional conventional bricks and mortar
industry to be more dynamic and operational, focusing on access and outcomes rather than ownership. Investors who do not develop creative and cost-effective strategies of accessing operational experience and innovation are likely to have diminishing returns on their investments. This paper illustrates how efficiency in operations is influenced by how investors select a combination of their investment portfolio.

Strategic investment approaches were the independent variable and efficient performance the dependent variable thus analyzing the relationship between the two variables.
