Our Story

After years working for very large publicly-traded Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), it was easy to see the opportunity in commercial real estate. But, who can afford these multi-million-dollar ventures, let alone manage them? That is why we started Spire Investment Properties — to capture these extraordinary opportunities together that we could never achieve alone.

Our Approach

We work with key partners that have "boots on the ground" knowledge in target US markets that favor multi-family investments.  Together we identify and analyze properties to purchase at reasonable prices.  We reposition them through light to modest rehabilitation, improve property management, apply green initiatives and technology. The result is improved cash flow and property value creation for our investors. We target properties that we believe can earn investors a double-digit return.

Property Example: Maplecrest Square Apartments

34 Unit Value-Add

Located just outside Knoxville, TN in the Tri-Cities area. This community is near retail, employers, and attractions with a growing population and income supporting higher target rents. Lack of good quality housing and low construction in the area is driving demand for this property with a history of 95%+ occupancy. With strong amenities for the sub-market, our renovation plan will make this property one of the best in the area! Find out more details here.

Property Example: Broadway / Stoneside

116 Unit Value-Add

Located in Kansas City’s Northland Submarket. The assets are conveniently located just off 169 Highway and are minutes away from nationally anchored restaurants and retail.

The properties benefit from extensive capital improvement projects totaling more than $600,000. Given the great overall condition and excellent location of the real estate, this will allow us to focus on adding value to the investment by continuing to burn off the in-place loss to lease and pushing rents with simple interior & exterior upgrades.
