Legacy Capital Partners is a real estate private equity firm founded in 2004. Our ability to create value and achieve superior returns for our investors rests on five fundamental beliefs:

  • 1Investment strategies have a shelf life. That is why we invest with strategies that work now and can be deployed quickly.
  • 2It’s all about the fundamentals. We are real estate professionals experienced in finance rather than finance professionals investing in real estate.
  • 3Relationships matter. Great investments are made with great partners whose capacity and ethics make all the difference.
  • 4Risk is reduced by having a defined and consistent process for how investment opportunities are analyzed.
  • 5Managing other people’s money requires strong internal systems and controls.  We take our role as a fiduciary seriously.

Our Strategy

Middle market real estate investors, deploying capital nationally through a series of focused funds with targeted strategies.

We focus on secondary markets and filter opportunities based on the partner, the location, and the investment’s ability to generate annual yield and capital appreciation.

Our Process

Our investment process is from the ground up and begins in the trenches, as you would expect from an investment manager with deep roots in real estate development. We strive to reduce the probability of investment errors through a defined sequence of actions; our investment process is the same regardless of fund strategy. It’s what differentiates us from other managers.
