Silverleaf Capital Group is a direct investment and management entity for a family office, established in 2005. We develop Real Estate projects and invest in Private Equity situations where we can add value to achieve attractive risk adjusted returns.
Silverleaf and its principal’s holding companies have been investing in real estate for over three decades. Our equity capital is typically between $1 to 5 Million in equity. Where total capitalization has exceeded $20 Million, we have sourced debt for projects and/or brought in like minded investors to co-invest with us on a promote-free basis.
We back experienced real estate developers with an established track record and whose compensation comes from the success of the investment and not in the form of fees. Finally, our developer partners must contribute north of 20% of the equity in a given venture.
In particular we favor real estate investments in “early” markets where established funds have no presence and returns profiles are robust. If we are participating in the majority if the equity we require a majority of control, yet at the same time our sponsors are empowered to manage the to the project’s plans and objectives.
Our principal’s business understanding comes from the day to day management of an operating company that grew from 5 employees to five thousand over the course of fifty years. As a result we understand the various business cycles from start-ups to mature pre-IPO companies earning $250 Million in revenues or more. We feel this heritage makes us well suited as investor-partners along side entrepreneurs who are for looking growth capital and a hands-on co-investment relationship.
If you have a business that is cash flow positive and are looking for growth capital of $250K to up to $5 Million in equity, we would be open to a discussion. While we will never profess to be an expert in all businesses, we require that Silverleaf has a fundamental influence on the businesses invest in. We aim to manage risk and accelerate growth to benefit the business, its customers and shareholders alike.

Silverleaf Capital Group began as a direct real estate manager and investor in 2005. Borne of a family investment office, we recognized that direct investing with management participation allow us to participate in opportunities not available when investing with funds or developers. Silverleaf continues to invest in real estate and direct private equity, where opportunities are rich, yet risk needs to be controlled or structured, and managers are open to our principals having a fundamental influence on their businesses.
Our entrepreneurial roots stem from five decades of experience as an owner-operator of one of the nation’s largest travel companies, which was sold in in 2006. We strive to use our same common-sense business approach to other’s businesses that we have used for our own. We only invest alongside successful, driven and disciplined leaders of high integrity.
