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 real estate fund.

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

Thomas Lopez-Pierre strongly believes that by rooting the ownership of real estate in the Black and Hispanic community broadly in the hands of Black and Hispanic people, it helps to defend, Black and Hispanic tenants from being exploited and displaced.

Thomas Lopez-Pierre is committed to increasing Black and Hispanic ownership of multi-family housing in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

What Opportunity Zones (OZ)?

REDUCTION OF CAPITAL GAINS: After holding an investment in an OZ Fund for seven years, the Capital Gains tax on the original Capital Gains is reduced by 15%. This is the equivalent of having a 15% step-up in basis on the initial investment.

NO CAPITAL GAINS TAX ON FUND PROFITS: After holding an investment in an OZ Fund for at least ten years, an investor’s disposition of an investment in an OZ Fund does not result in any additional federal income taxes.

In addition, attendees of The Black and Hispanic Real Estate Investment Forum will have the opportunity to hear from Special Guest Speaker: Shawn D. Rochester, Author of The Black Tax.

In his new book The Black Tax: The Cost of being Black in America, Shawn Rochester shows how The Black Tax (which is the financial cost of conscious and unconscious anti-black discrimination), creates a massive financial burden on Black American households that dramatically reduces their ability to leave a substantial legacy for future generations (source:
