Erik’s zeal for real estate stems from his interests in finance and community development.
He started his real estate career as an acquisitions associate for a public REIT that invests in single-family homes, and later worked for River Rock Capital where he invested in rental properties and value-add opportunities on behalf of REITs and Private Equity funds. Most recently, he was a commercial underwriter for a subsidiary of Blackstone LP. Erik has deployed more than $100 MM of investor capital into value-add and high-yield real estate throughout the U.S.
Erik graduated from Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, where he played Division I tennis and studied finance on an academic and athletic scholarship. He is currently pursuing his master’s in real estate from Georgetown University.
