Gelfund Real Estate Opportunities is a group of residential private equity funds.
Our team has developed expertise in the Northeast US residential real estate market, with over 50 years of collective experience and proven excellence. Our expertise includes acquisition, development, construction, property management and disposition of multifamily residential properties and high-end residential condominiums.
Headquartered in Philadelphia, we have established transparent, reliable, all in-house operations. We treat every investment with a disciplined approach and are dedicated to generating risk-adjusted returns, steady cash-on-cash distributions and providing accurate information about our assets.
Our extensive business relations in the Northeast US market with real estate brokers and financial institutions, as well as long term relations with leading decision makers, set the groundwork for value-added investments in a stable and reliable market.
Our investment methodology and debt policy are based on our vast experience and the lessons of the COVID-19 pandemic and the 2008 subprime mortgage crisis. While our risk management program is prepared to overcome the next real estate crisis, and maintain a strong position, we will respond swiftly to market trends.


Our vision is to make investors become our partners
by establishing long-term relationships, built on trust, transparency and fairness.

Our goal is to be the most effective and resilient team
in order to succeed in every endeavor, regardless of the challenges, any time and place.

We believe these key elements will serve as a basis for creating significant and sustainable value for our partners.


Our mission is to make Gelfund your preferred investment alternative for residential properties
by leveraging our energized and motivated team’s extensive expertise and vast experience in the target residential market.
We strive to bring the best investment opportunities and to generate high yields for our partners, marking sustainability one of our core business objectives.
