Acquisition Strategy
Buy To Sell
We focus on acquiring distressed assets, bringing them up to community standards. Our buyers are investors seeking a more stabilized, yielding asset.
Extreme Adaptability
In the past two decades we have seen two market downturns, without the need for a single default or workout. We’ve accomplished this thanks to our agility, and as such are poised to handle major fluctuations in the real estate market. Performance and capital preservation is of paramount importance to us.
GP Commitment
We invest alongside our limited partners. We execute transactions and asset acquisitions as if our own capital is at risk.
Community Commitment
This is real estate investing you can feel good about. CIG doesn’t exist to change the character of a neighborhood, but rather to enhance it. Our focus is creating quality housing for America’s working class, by restoring properties to their full potential, and creating homes our residents can be proud of.
High Quality On-Site Staff
People are the core driver of success in any business, but especially in real estate. We pride ourselves on implementing high-quality, on-site staff at each of our properties. Because we self-manage our assets, and hand select staff, we’re able to successfully implement our process for turnaround.
Our Portfolios

We source 300–1200-unit C Class portfolios in secondary and tertiary markets throughout the continental US.

Our current portfolio consists of assets at each stage in the turnaround process: newly acquired, undergoing rehab & implementation of new management team, and stabilized for sale or strategic hold.

Multifamily Assets
Class C Workforce Housing
Value-add distressed investments
Our acquisitions are typically Class C Workforce Housing assets with an owner-operator overwhelmed – either due to over-exposure, a lack of liquidity, or inability to respond to market cycles. As a result, the properties have high vacancy, low collections, and deferred maintenance. Over the course of 12 to 36 months, we bring these properties up to their full potential.
Multifamily Demand
Our core focus
We anticipate a strong, continued demand for workforce housing in the next 5-6 years. The slowdown of new construction during the pandemic, combined with rising mortgage rates, increase relative affordability of renting. This is especially true in tertiary markets and workforce housing. These circumstances reinforce the imperative need for historic levels of multifamily development to help relieve excess demand.
