Bergman Tapped to Help Firm Grow Connections with Equity Investors
Vision & Beyond Capital Investments has recruited Michael Bergman of NAI Bergman to its corporate board of advisors in a move that intends to capitalize on his strong connections to the local business community and potential equity investors.
Bergman is a sales associate and receiver with NAI Bergman, a family-owned and operated full-service commercial real estate brokerage, property management, development and construction management firm representing 65 years and four generations of commercial real estate experience.
“The Vision & Beyond board of advisors is a critical component of our growth, and Michael is an important link in our pursuit of more equity partners,” says Stas Grinberg, co-founder and managing partner, Vision & Beyond. “We are delighted to tap into four generations of the Bergman family’s expertise as we prepare for tremendous expansion.”
Vision & Beyond entered the Houston, Texas market at the end of April, acquiring three different multifamily developments comprising 460 units. The assets and planned improvements represent an investment of $73 million.
Bergman joins Vision & Beyond board advisors Donald Feathers, founder, Roaring Fork Development; Zachary Gottesman, managing partner, Gottesman & Associates; and David Mizrachi, senior vice president of global business development, Standard Textile Co., Inc.
“Stas and the rest of the team are laser-focused on developing strategies that support rapid growth and find more investors with an appetite for multifamily investment,” says Bergman. “I’m honored to join this advisory board and help bring more partners who align with Vision & Beyond’s goals.”
Vision & Founded was founded in Cincinnati, Ohio in 2018 by Grinberg and Peter Gizunterman, two veteran officers in the Israel Defense Forces. The firm acquired two market-rate multifamily developments in Greater Louisville, Kentucky earlier this year, bringing its holdings to nearly 3,000 multi-unit residential developments in Cincinnati, Columbus, and Dayton, Ohio; Lexington and Louisville, Kentucky; New Albany, Indiana, and Houston, Texas.
Vision & Beyond’s holdings represent a total investment of nearly $295 million in real estate assets and property improvements. Grinberg says the firm plans to invest another $270 million in new acquisitions and property improvements in the remainder of 2022.
