Corporate Overview

GTIS Partners is a leading real estate investment firm in the Americas, headquartered in New York with offices in São Paulo, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Paris and Munich. GTIS was founded in 2005 and is managed by President Tom Shapiro and Partners Thomas Feldstein, João Teixeira and Rob Vahradian.

The leadership team is comprised of seasoned real estate professionals with deep expertise in investment, development, asset management, legal and operations across multiple economic cycles. The collective experience of the leadership team allows GTIS to pursue and lead vertically integrated operating businesses in each of its chosen markets in the United States and Brazil. Most recently in 2020, GTIS took advantage of its in-house capability to self-develop and operate purpose built single-family communities in high-growth sunbelt markets while exiting the highly successful single-family rental portfolio acquired post-crisis.

GTIS’ dedicated research professionals work hand-in-hand with its investment teams to identify macro trends early, including investing in Brazil in 2005, United States residential in 2009 and single-family rental as an emerging asset class in 2010. GTIS has emerged as a leading residential investor in the US post-crisis, with a portfolio footprint in 42 major markets in the ‘smile’ of the country with above-average fundamentals. The US residential portfolio comprises 155 assets across four primary strategies: homebuilding, land development, urban infill acquisition and development, and single-family rental.

GTIS takes a local approach to real estate investing with on-the-ground teams in six key markets with 84 employees and $4.3bn of gross real estate assets under management. With broad expertise in structuring, design, development and asset management, GTIS professionals oversee projects in residential, office, industrial/ logistics and hospitality from concept to completion.
