Developing with a Difference
VanTrust Real Estate was founded in 2010 as a full-service real estate development company with a regional emphasis and a national reach. We provide a full spectrum of real estate services to our clients and capital partners, including acquisition, disposition, development, development services, and corporate services. Product types include office, industrial, multifamily, and mixed-use. We show up to measure our performance based on our collective success and to exceed all stakeholders’ expectations in every way.
Developing with a Difference encompasses much more than finding the right property or building a successful project. Our core mission is to serve as responsible stewards to the communities we operate in. Our diverse team is made up of development experts, backed by the ownership and capital base associated with the Van Tuyl Group. We listen, process what we hear, then present solutions based on our expertise that will generate the greatest value while minimizing risk. For VanTrust, it’s about more than transactions; our goal is to deliver developments that become part of the community’s fabric and strengthen it.
