Our Philosophy at EDEN Multifamily

We are dedicated to sourcing and developing unique properties in targeted urban infill submarkets throughout the Southeast United States, with specific emphasis on market rate apartments.

EDEN Multifamily also develops in secondary and tertiary markets where an opportunistic upside exists.

Industry-Leading Approach +
Focused Strategy

EDEN has quickly become the gold standard in real estate investments due to our unique approach from concept to completion.

We target specific growing submarkets in stabilized, high-growth municipalities, then source unique urban and suburban infill sites within those markets.

We also repurpose select retail and commercial sites, such as distressed shopping centers and commercial properties, into new residential and mixed-use communities.

By redeveloping these sites, we form opportunities that create substantial value where none previously existed.

Our Values


Our vertically integrated team includes individuals dedicated to every stage of the process: market research, financial underwriting, due-diligence, project management, development, construction management and investor relations.


We continue to grow our market share and deliver outsized investor returns because our innovative approach to sourcing and developing infill sites makes it possible to create new opportunities in high-growth submarkets.


We look to build opportunities with a direct-to-owner philosophy, having done business directly with significant land and property owners. We also work with brokers who have viable opportunities to present.
