The Champion Companies

Since 2010, Champion sponsored investments has completed more than $1 billion of apartment transactions. During our eight-year history, more than 100 high-net-worth investors have participated in Champion sponsored acquisitions, many of whom have made multiple investments. Champion sponsored investments has also entered into multiple joint ventures with private equity, family office and life insurance capital.

Champion has extensive experience in acquiring, repositioning and recapitalizing apartment communities.

Our team works collaboratively throughout the life cycle of an investment vehicle from strategy inception through asset dispositions, focused on creating return upside potential through an active approach to owning and operating multi-family communities.

Champion seeks to provide attractive, risk-adjusted returns to its investors by acquiring well-located, high-quality apartment communities to which the company believes it can add value through our capital improvements and superior operating platform. Champion is generally seeking Class A and B+ apartment communities in the Midwest with a minimum of 150 units.

Champion is responsible for finding, acquiring and managing the real estate. We underwrite and perform all necessary due diligence on the properties we look to acquire. Our investors invest with us on these projects and own a percentage of the real estate as a result. Our investors receive all the benefits of property ownership, but they are not involved with acquiring the property, arranging financing and doing the day-to-day management. It’s truly a passive investment.

The biggest reason investors participate in real estate partnerships with Champion is the exclusivity and access to deal flow. Not every investor has time to search and underwrite hundreds of properties to find a gem to acquire. Further, many accredited investors do not have the desire to manage all of the other facets that come with owning an apartment community. By partnering with us, our investors have access to deal flow and the ability to invest in multi-family real estate without the hassles that come when doing it alone.
