The Harlem Real Estate Fund, LLC (the "Fund") was founded in 2014 by Thomas Lopez-Pierre, a NYS Licensed Real Estate Broker and Affordable Housing Activist, as a boutique Black and Hispanic-owned private equity/social impact real estate fund.

The Fund raises investment capital exclusively from Black and Hispanic investors and deploys it exclusively with Black and Hispanic real estate developers.

Washington Post: White families have nearly 10 times the net worth of black families. And the gap is growing.

The Fund is committed to building and preserving the multi-generational wealth of its Black and Hispanic investors by increasing their ownership of multi-family housing in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek," Barack Obama.

The Fund has developed a pipeline of actionable opportunities, driven by its network of experienced Black and Hispanic operating partners to minimize risk, improve execution and increase profits.

Black and Hispanic real estate investors will need to evolve and adapt as necessary if they are to be in a position to meet the challenges of creating multi-generational wealth that NOT only benefits the FEW but expands economic opportunities for the MANY within the Black and Hispanic community.

Thomas Lopez-Pierre strongly believes that by rooting the ownership of multi-family housing in the Black and Hispanic community broadly in the hands of Black and Hispanic people, it will help to foster a higher state of economic and political empowerment and end the current  exploitation and displacement of the Black (and Hispanic) community by "Greedy Landlords" in America.
