Camphor Partners invests in commercial real estate 

in the United States and China.

Camphor Partners is a privately held real estate investment and management company with over $1 billion in assets under management in the US and China. Founded in 1992, the company has acquired, planned, developed, and managed real estate in the residential, retail, office, industrial, and hospitality sectors. 

Our projects have ranged from ground up construction to the renovation and leasing of existing structures. We invest in properties that offer opportunities to add value through entitlement, development, renovation, and proactive management.  Institutional capital firms and private investors take part in our projects by co-investing with our company’s owners for the acquisition and operation of our assets.

The company’s leaders have invested through multiple real estate cycles providing the experience to identify opportunities with attractive, risk-adjusted returns in growth markets.  This experience, coupled with comprehensive research on market factors, provides predictable investment opportunities for our client base, and our track record for closing is exceptional – Camphor Partners has closed nearly 100% of its escrows.

The impressive performance of the principals of the company are the direct result of our commitment to the fundamentals of real estate investing: inherent value, location, and proactive management.
