Real Estate Private Equity

Trusted Discipline for Value and Income

VW Multifamily is a private equity investment manager that generates long-term wealth and distributes income to its investment partners by achieving Peak NOI from Class B multifamily real estate assets in the southeastern U.S.

Our investment clients are accredited investors who require above-average risk-adjusted returns from real estate investments and may feel limited to investing in public REITs with low yields or private REITs with high fees. We are extremely selective and disciplined in the investments we choose to own with our investment partners and our low overhead allows us to operate and deliver investment results with less fees than typically found in large investment funds.

VW seeks to acquire high-quality investments at discounts to replacement cost. We then improve the properties through hands-on management and targeted value-add initiatives. Our efforts result in solid IRRs and reliable cash yields for investors and their families.

We believe we offer real estate investors something they cannot get with another investment manager.
