CAF Capital Partners Hires New Senior Vice President of Acquisitions

“In today’s environment, multifamily offers opportunities not available in other real estate sectors for those who understand the market and are well capitalized," Geer said.

Industry veteran Jason Geer has been named senior vice president of acquisitions at CAF Capital Partners, a Dallas-based private equity real estate firm.

Geer joins CAF Capital Partners from Invesco Real Estate where he spent 25 years.

CAF Capital Partners specializes in the acquisition, redevelopment, repositioning, and subsequent sale of institutional quality multifamily real estate.

“Jason brings a wealth of experience and a track record of success in the real estate industry that will enhance our strategy of identifying well-located institutional properties with strategic competitive advantages and capitalize on those differentiators to deliver superior returns to our investors,” CAF Chief Executive Officer Chris Faulkner said in a statement. “It’s not often you get the opportunity to add talent with his pedigree and extensive relationships in our industry.”

Multifamily opportunities ‘in these challenging times’

At CAF, Geer’s responsibilities will center on driving ongoing expansion efforts in the Southeastern region. His focus will be directed toward acquisitions, equity partnerships, and specialized client relationships, all within the multifamily area, the firm said.

“Since 2011 our firm has acquired 59 properties in the Sunbelt with more than 20,000 units,” CAF President Trent Wood said in a statement. “The addition of Jason Geer to our team positions our company for continued growth in these high-opportunity areas.”

Geer said CAF’s team is a committed unit.

“I look forward to working with the CAF team of professionals who have already demonstrated that their targeted commitment to multifamily and their financial strength enables them to move quickly and strategically in these challenging times,” Geer said in a statement. “In today’s environment, multifamily offers opportunities not available in other real estate sectors for those who understand the market and are well capitalized.”

CAF Capital Partners has closed on more than $4 billion in apartment properties and assets, managing over 26,000 multifamily units in Texas and the southwestern United States.
