About Hazelview

Company Overview

We have been active investors, owners and managers of real estate investments since 1999. We measure our success on a human scale; in the clients and investors who know us as trusted partners and the residents and team members who call Hazelview home.

For us, it’s always been about getting the most value by digging a little deeper to uncover opportunities for growth that others missed. We have an active, hands-on investment management platform that helps us find opportunities for sustainable long-term cash flow. We’ve got a reputation for providing conservatively managed, risk-averse investment opportunities for our investors.

We are committed to fostering the long-term growth of our employees, residents and the investments we make for our clients. It’s one of the things we’ve always believed in, creating value in real estate, and people.
