About imageAbout image

Hello and thank you for stopping by.

P8 Real Estate Solutions is a real estate development company driven by purpose and solutions.

Our focus lies in the development of small-scale projects and cultivating public-private partnerships (P3).

We firmly believe that small-scale developments can bring about significant economic improvements in local neighborhoods, especially when approached, planned, and integrated with the community in a way that aligns with their values rather than imposing a singular vision. To us, the 'right way' entails creating project models that align with our client's financial objectives, minimize unnecessary expenses and risks, and are embraced by the community in terms of mission, design, and purpose.

Furthermore, we actively nurture strategic public-private partnerships (P3) to achieve desired outcomes. In today's ever-evolving landscape, there are opportunities to reimagine existing real estate portfolios to support new missions and objectives.

I look forward to hearing from you.
