Dreamstone Investments is a privately-held apartment and commercial real estate company which currently owns and manages over 690 units in the Atlanta, Nashville, and Tampa Bay metropolitan areas.

Since inception, Dreamstone has experienced tremendous growth by focusing on the turnaround of distressed and underperforming properties to increase their value-added.


Real estate is often thought of as an underdog when it comes to choosing where to invest your money. A majority of investors are often unaware of the untold advantages of real estate investing, especially when it’s done right.

Many investors are instead funneled into more traditional investments such as 401K and paper assets despite the reality that these avenues are extremely volatile and frequently unwise in the long term.

Smarter, more strategic real estate investing processes can bring immense value to investors. Dreamstone Investments has developed the best approach to make it happen.


While remaining true to our values of integrity, excellence, value and innovation, Dreamstone simplifies commercial real estate investing by implementing the latest technology and techniques to add value for our investors.

We tackle real estate investing with a systematic approach focused on acquiring distressed and under-performing assets to efficiently stabilize and execute a value-add strategy to yield more favorable returns to our investors.

The Dreamstone team specializes in adding value to properties with the “Dreamstone touch” on unit interiors and exteriors, adding functional and aesthetic features that ensure value for investors while also creating appealing, affordable, family-friendly spaces that attract and retain residents over time.



Dreamstone Investments currently manages over 690 apartment units in Nashville, Tennessee and the Atlanta and Tampa Bay Metro areas. Dreamstone collected rents totaling $45,000 in 2018, $300,000 in 2019 and $2 million in 2020.

In 2019, our 7-unit Lakeside Gardens property in Lake Wales, Florida, sold for $320,000 and saw a project and investor IRR of 45% after a year of renovations.


In September 2020, we purchased the 101-unit Cross Creek Apartments for $5.9 million and expect to exceed a project IRR of 23% and an investor IRR of 18%.


In the same month, we acquired Hartsville Pike in Lebanon, Tennessee, a newly constructed 19-unit building for $5.9 million and expect a project IRR of more than 28% and investor IRR of 20% or more.


Dreamstone secured our most recent partnership with Open Door Capital to assist us with larger fundraising rounds. Open Door Capital is a private, well-capitalized real estate investment firm that helps clients achieve superior risk-adjusted returns through the acquisition of value-add mobile home communities nationwide.
