Groundswell Real Estate

Newport Beach, CA

Groundswell Real Estate Investments, LLC is an opportunistic commercial real estate platform founded in 2017 by J. Patrick (“Pat”) Galvin and Daniel A. Traylor in partnership with the Traylor family. Groundswell represents a natural progression of growth from the Traylor family’s roots in residential land investment through Columnar to a fully diversified real estate investment platform. Groundswell focuses on the acquisition, development, repositioning and management of income producing value-add real estate and select infill development projects located in the Western U.S. and in Sunbelt states. With an active geographic presence in California, Texas, Florida and North Carolina, Groundswell is equipped to source and execute uncommon, off-market transactions through extensive long-term industry relationships, positioning each investment for success. Groundswell sources investment opportunities on a deal-by-deal basis in partnership with like-minded family offices and high net worth individuals. The Traylor family provides lead limited partner investment for each Groundswell transaction, and together with our partners we seek superior risk-adjusted returns with an eye toward opportunistic, contrarian deployment of capital. The executive management team has extensive experience investing in and developing CRE product types, including office, industrial, multifamily, retail, condominium and residential and mixed-use land developments in various Sunbelt states, including California, Arizona, Utah, Nevada, Colorado, Texas, Florida, and North Carolina. The common denominator in our collective experience is a strict adherence to value investing principles.
