About REAP

Transforming Potential

design detail

Real Estate Asset Partners (REAP) unites a passion for opportunistic real estate development and a moral imperative to strengthen working-class communities. The company’s focus is on multifamily properties that are advantageously situated, are undervalued, and have the potential for high growth.

REAP  is comprised of a seasoned team of real estate investment professionals with over 20 years of experience. Its record of success on behalf of investors comes from its expertise in asset, property, and construction management. Surety of execution and a talent for implementing value-enhancing upgrades to the assets — combined with a commitment to reimagining workforce housing — distinguish REAP’s opportunities for investors.

REAP  was established to fulfill two purposes:

icon-growth Maximize investor returns through opportunistic real estate acquisition, development, and management.
icon-family Promote stronger communities through resources, programs, and dignified housing for working-class families.

Proven to Realize Results. Driven to Make a Difference.

The demand for workforce housing continues to outpace supply in the United States and to increase pressure on renters across the income spectrum. In addition, the housing available to cost-burdened renters often lacks modern amenities. As a result of both trends, renters often do not have the resources to improve their economic circumstances or to connect with the wider community.

In response, REAP develops real estate with updates and amenities to improve the lives of tenants while simultaneously increasing returns on investment. Resources tailored to workforce communities, from afterschool programs to transportation initiatives, support tenant recruitment and retention. REAP aims to implement only efficient upgrades that add value without pricing out all existing residents. This approach allows it to avoid the pitfalls of typical, less-strategic gentrification.

 

We bring high-quality living choices into underserved neighborhoods. People are offered better choices and a better quality of life. Communities improve. It is through this abundant exchange that we position our investors for maximum gain.
