Yes. Reits, crefs, and SMAs!

reits - usually publicly traded real estate type funds that owns, operates or finances income-producing real estate. Indirect 

Cref - funds created via contributions from individual owners of real estate. This pool is then managed under certain mandate. Direct investment. Ever hear of TIAA-Cref?

SMA - an investment account managed individually by a manager. Usually has equity in it, like a mutual fund that they manage directly for you
