RELEQUITY is a private equity real estate firm that channels the passions of industry professionals such as Architects, Engineers, Construction and Consultants.  We provide them with unique opportunities to build “real equity” in real estate as easily as possible.

Our goal is to help busy professionals build long-term wealth and passive income through investments in multi-family real estate. 


We engage in a proven investment strategy that protects investor capital while minimizing investor risk and delivering a passive stream of income, portfolio diversification and considerable tax benefits to busy professionals. 


We create opportunities for passionate industry professionals to get their share of "Real Equity" through multifamily real estate/apartment investing.  




We describe our multi-family real estate investment strategy as "disciplined & educated" investing.  Our first priority is investor capital preservation and our second priority is maximizing returns on your investment.  Here are our guiding principles for our investment practices:

  • We focus on markets with stable or growing populations.

  • We buy for cash flow, with an opportunity to increase value.

  • We look to secure long term, low leverage debt, and retain adequate cash reserves.
