ERES Capital

We believe in fostering meaningful partnerships with best-in-class organizations that own their respective space. In today’s world, it is not a competitive advantage to have an “angle”, “edge”, or “value-add” strategy, it is a prerequisite.

ERES Capital is a full-service real estate investment and development platform operating both domestically and internationally. Our core focus is on fast-growing secondary and tertiary markets where we seek unique, off-market opportunities across hospitality, healthcare, industrial and education verticals.

We pride ourselves in identifying hard to find, off market deals that fit our investment criteria and can garner above average, risk-adjusted returns across market cycles. Such opportunities could include special situations, value-add, or even ground-up developments with unique market characteristics.

The ERES Capital team approaches each project with a tailored methodology that reflects the distinctive character of the asset, its location, the target audience, the estimated project timeline and the investor’s financial goals.
