Over 30 years - Real Estate Investment & Development
Based in Northern California and Nevada, Laguna2 Real Estate Group has worked throughout the Western U.S., identifying investment opportunities in key metropolitan markets.  The Groups primary focus is on land for housing: Residential Communities, Student Housing, Senior Housing, and Multifamily.
With its managing members roots grounded in the early 80's merchant home building business, the group has grown and developed into a leading source and supplier of entitled land for merchant builders and developers.  In addition, the Group has sourced and provided structured investment financing for land acquisition and development of multiple projects for outside developers.
The Group has funded the purchase, managed entitlements and developed projects in a wide range of sizes, from small 30 unit Residential Subdivisions to larger mixed use Master Planned Communities (2500 units) and larger area wide Specific Plans of more than 11,000 units.
Each member has in excess of 30 years of experience in real estate development.  And combined, the Group has been involved with the acquisition, entitlement and disposition of more than 50,000 units throughout the region.​ 
Our Business
    Acquisition/Entitlement/Development/Disposition Laguna2 Real Estate Group acquires raw land and redevelopment opportunities that meet the Groups financial and development criteria. Each potential project is analysed and designed to determine its highest and best use, then taken through local zoning and entitlement processes for final development approvals. Once completed, the project is developed or sold.
  2. Acquisition
    Data Analysis/Product Design/Financial Analysis. Working with local representation we analyse market data for trends within a region. Once a site is identified we team with our nationally recognized architectural firm to design and formulate a preliminary project concept to determine the sites highest and best use. Using the project conceptual design a financial analysis is developed utilizing local revenues, fees and construction costs.
  3. Entitlements
    Pre-development/Project Planning. Each project is unique in nature with different requirements for land planning and construction approvals. The group uses the best professional businesses with local experience and contacts processing any required planning and zoning entitlement issues.
  4. Development
    Using Local Teams. The Group primarily focuses on land and for that reason does not staff for construction. It prefers to either venture the project with existing merchant builders/developers or employ local/regional teams to manage and complete project construction.
  5. Disposition
    Marketing/Sales In addition to marketing the and selling the project to the local investment/development community, the Group has developed relationships with national concerns interested in expanding into our chosen markets.
