We bring years of real-world experience in real estate investing to our limited partner’s investments, combining institutional knowledge with personalized attention.
We’ve seen many new real estate investors trying to get in the game and “try” their hand at investing. Not us. We bring decades of combined real estate experience, knowledge of the real estate landscape, and a background in prop-tech as a competitive advantage to help drive returns for our investors.
Based in Dallas, we moved from San Francisco to start the company and build long-lasting, boots on the ground, relationships in Texas. We invest in multi-family and RV Park properties in the U.S. with a focus on Texas. We use automation to source deals off market, allowing us to enhance returns for our investors. We dedicate ourselves to our investors with a personal touch.

Why Leone Real Estate Partners?
Multifamily & RV Park Focus
We focus on investing in value-add and core-plus multifamily and RV Park properties across the country but we are focused on Texas with boots on the ground in Dallas and Waco.
Property Technology Advantage
We use various technology enablers to better understand micro-market level trends and automation to source deals. This way, we enhance returns for our investors.
We have over 30 years of combined experience in the commercial real estate industry and we’ve managed over 900 Class A and 700+ Class C Multifamily units.
We are committed to giving more to our investors than they expect by over-communicating investment performance and overall have a go-giver mentality with everyone we interact with, especially our investors.
We pride ourselves on being honest and open with you about each investment, including the challenges and opportunities we see in each property.
“If you don’t measure it, you can’t manage it.” We drive top-performing investments by measuring our real estate via metrics and recalibrating as needed.
We want to pass our knowledge, and other experts’ knowledge, on to you. We give back to the people in our community, whether they’re an investor with us or not.
