Merion Realty Partners (Merion) was established in 2011 as a real estate investment and management platform in a spinout of the Real Estate Division of CMS Companies. Merion is dedicated to pursuing and operating investment opportunities for institutional and high net-worth investors. Merion became a registered investment adviser with the SEC on January 1, 2012.
Merion closed its first sponsored acquisition and institutional raise in December 2011 acquiring a 20 property multifamily portfolio consisting of 4,900 units. Its most recent sponsored fund is the Merion Multifamily Fund targeting investments in primarily value add apartment projects located in select secondary markets in the Southeast, Texas and Mid-Atlantic. In addition to sponsoring its own funds and joint ventures, Merion manages and advises the real estate funds sponsored by CMS Companies.
Prior to forming Merion, founding principals William Landman and Richard Aljian worked together for 16 years at CMS Companies. During that time, CMS invested over $1.4 billion of equity in real estate assets via private equity real estate funds across a variety of asset classes. Since 1997 over $680 million of equity was invested in multifamily properties containing over 66,000 apartment units.
Merion brings a wealth of experience, knowledge, creativity and a team of real estate professionals well versed in capital raising, investment, acquisition, finance, disposition, and asset management.
