Our partners-- Jay, Brandon, Steve, Ellen, and Danny-- were all born, raised, and currently reside in the Midwest. They take pride in their roots. Often, they would visit the coasts and discover a plethora of cool, modern residences, and they realized the Midwest lacked these housing options. They used this realization as inspiration and founded DEV Partners with the ambition to create beautiful, sustainable, and modern housing in the Midwest. DEV's background in Architecture and Real Estate pushes them toward beauty, aesthetics, creativity, form, and function.

DEV Partners creates vibrant communities and beautiful properties, foster lasting relationships, and generate significant returns for our investors. We operate on the above set of core values that are present within all of our project.

DEV's background in Architecture and Real Estate pushes them toward beauty, aesthetics, creativity, form, and function. Our leadership also provides coordination between DEV Partners and our strategic partner,
SHYFT, to provide support design, project management, and construction services. 

Our Process

We’re a real estate development and investment firm that works with investors who have the capital, but lack the time, energy, or knowledge to do this themselves.

We engage in projects and develop partnerships with investors through a capital raising process, then operate the asset for a set hold period.  The projects earn cash flow while we hold the properties (years 1-6) and then we’ll look to sell the portfolio after the hold period.  Buyers find this valuable because we’ve done all the hard work of finding, developing, designing, renovating, and stabilizing these properties.
