Who We Are


Our Firm

Established in 1992, Fairway evaluates potential investments in nearly all real estate asset classes and provides investors with easy access to the potentially lucrative middle market segment. We believe our extensive relationships, deal flow, broad investment mandate, and opportunistic investment thesis allow us to capitalize on opportunities across fluctuating market conditions in various asset strategies and types.

Fairway America and our affiliate, Verivest, help middle market real estate sponsors and managers improve and scale their operations. At the same time, we can provide investors greater confidence in and better access to the space. Over the past decade Fairway has created a middle market real estate ecosystem that resonates with sponsors and investors alike. Our platform bridges the gap between these two groups to help quality people do great deals together.

Our Mission

To help people find great real estate deals.

Fairway America strives to consistently deliver high quality middle market real estate investment opportunities and an exceptional investor experience.

To achieve our mission, we work only with what we consider to be the highest caliber real estate partners – sponsors that have passed our stringent underwriting criteria and have demonstrated they share Fairway’s value-investing principles and core values.

Fairway’s Core Values

A Message from Our
Founder & CEO

My long background in real estate lending taught me the importance of truly understanding the intrinsic value of the real estate collateral securing any given loan and then only lending an amount that maintained a healthy margin of safety. Although I didn’t have a name for it at the time, those early experiences ingrained in me the principles of “value investing” as they can be applied to real estate asset-based investments. Having persevered through multiple market cycles (including the Great Recession and now COVID), this core belief – more than anything else – has contributed to a nearly three-decade track record of investment performance of which I am very proud (and which we routinely make available to investors – something I believe all investors should insist sponsors be willing and able to do).
