We know that there are many avenues in building an investment portfolio, however, few busy professionals and entrepreneurs hold investment Real Estate because they lack the time, expertise, or relationships to invest.
This is a problem because Investment Real Estate is a critical part of any diversified investment portfolio.
3 Reasons a Portfolio May Lack Investment Real Estate:
Unaware of Opportunities
Many aren’t even aware that there is an option of investing in real estate without being the direct owner-manager – retaining all the credit & liability risk.
Limited by Pre-Existing Knowledge
Others believe they are limited to public REITs, which tend to mirror the downsides of the stock market, offering lower returns, all without the incredible tax-benefits of ownership. (Find a better option!)
No Time, Experience or Network
There are others who may lack the knowledge, time, experience, and network of experienced real estate operators & sponsors to confidently invest in institutional quality real estate projects that offer better returns. (We offer those!)
Lack of Portfolio Diversification
Many investors’ portfolios are heavily weighted in one asset class – typically stocks and publicly traded assets, leading to a lack of diversification. (We can help diversify!)
Real Estate Unique Features
A combination of short-term and long-term earning potential as well as diversification power not found in other asset classes, such as the stock market.
Not only is Real Estate used by many smart investors to build wealth, it has the ability to earn consistent income and has a track record of long-term appreciation.
In fact, those who diversify a portion of their portfolio in Real Estate investments have historically outperformed those who haven’t.
At VonFinch Capital
Our Goal is
Our goal is to help investors create tax-efficient income streams and grow their wealth by investing in growing markets across the U.S.
We help our clients add private Real Estate investments to their portfolios passively by investing alongside experienced experts who have a proven track record of delivering attractive risk-adjusted returns.
Our Focus is
Our focus is specifically on large multifamily properties. We leverage local operators to execute the day to day business plan while partnering with investors just like you who get a benefit from the upside on the investments.
We Believe That
We believe in true partnerships that create true passive income while growing your portfolio, creating diversification, and most importantly, investing with experts who’ve been down this path before.
We believe that real estate is one of the most powerful tools to create a better life.
We strive to create an impact in the communities we invest within, the tenants who rent our units, and the partners we work with.
Because of this, we believe in truly aligned interests; meaning when you succeed, we succeed together.

Our 2 Core Beliefs
Together we build a diversified portfolio within the real estate sector that will support you across market cycle changes.
We focus on sourcing projects that are able to offer different return profiles for investors of all types.
We diversify across properties, markets, asset size and type, and strategies.
This allows our clients access to deals that provide cash-flow, equity-growth, or a hybrid we call cash-growth, which blends income with appreciation
Invest with Experts
The advantage of investing in private real estate offerings is the ability to leverage expert sponsors experience, time, network, and access to capital.
This allows passive investors the ability to access the upside of private real-estate without the responsibility of active management.
Often this leads to strong returns, lower risk, and the ability to truly diversify within your portfolio.
Investors benefit from the majority of the profit upside, while spending no time managing their real estate investments.
Expertise and Experience
To be the most effective and reduce risk to ensure stability for you, we’ve created strategic partnerships with expert managers who have 10+ years of experience, who’ve managed hundreds of millions of dollars in multifamily assets. You benefit from the team’s experience.
When these partnerships are paired with diversification across properties, markets, operators, and asset classes, this leads to increased stability within your portfolio.
