Our History

Today, this same veteran team at Cirrus offers new clients extensive experience in property acquisitions, property operations, construction management, accounting, financial engineering, and dispositions from their many years working with well-known firms in the multi-family sector. Our firm has unrivaled depth in consulting and strategic asset plan development for affordable property owners and in repositioning older assets. In the years at Stratus Real Estate and now Cirrus, our executive team has assisted in the transfer of nearly $5 billion in assets. Presently, with all non-compete restrictions expired, Cirrus is again growing with third-party customers finding their way to the company through word of mouth alone.
