On New Year’s Day, Calabasas, CA based Cirrus Asset Management principal Steve Heimler got his first official business call from somewhere other than Hawaii where Cirrus fee manages 2500 units.  “It was our attorneys telling us it was OK to pick up the phone and start doing business elsewhere,” says Heimler, who sold his former company, Stratus Real Estate, and its 24,000 units under management to Riverstone Residential in 2007 and was prohibited per a three-year noncompete agreement from doing business in the 48 contiguous states and Alaska until 2011.
