Building wealth doesn’t mean that you need to take extreme risks or put your hard-earned savings on the line.

At Village Capital Partners, we help you build wealth through low-risk, high-growth real estate investments in strong markets throughout the U.S.

We personally vet every multifamily investment we open up to our investors, to ensure they’re the best fit for you and your investing and lifestyle goals.


Real estate syndications are group investments in large commercial assets. Rather than investing in a rental property alone, real estate syndications allow you to invest passively, without becoming a landlord. Together, we invest in a solid, cash-flowing commercial property like an apartment community.

When you invest passively in a real estate syndication, you get to invest your money and let us do all the work for you. We find and manage the deals on your behalf, and you get to sit back and enjoy the passive income, knowing that your money is secure and growing for your family’s bright future.

Passive Real Estate Investing Gives You…


…all without the hassles of being a landlord

Meet the Founders


Hello! Russell & Julie here, founders of Village Capital Partners.

We’ve both been in real estate a long time – through single family, commercial developments, land, and multifamily. Unfortunately, that also means we’ve seen multiple people miss excellent opportunities to protect and grow their wealth – either out of fear or lack of information.

That’s why we love to help educate investors.

In this business, knowledge really is power! Since we discovered how life-changing multifamily real estate investments can be, we’ve passionately shared about them, creating a village of educated investors protecting their wealth and building a legacy for future generations.
