Kramer Chandler, LLC is a fourth generation, private real estate investment firm based in Northern New Jersey. We manage a diverse portfolio of investments across a variety of asset classes.
As both a growth-oriented and value-added investor, we target opportunities with hands on partners that allow us to shape a cohesive mix between sectors and geographies. We possess an entrepreneurial family business mindset, meaningful cross-industry relationships and a long term horizon.
Most of all, we value honesty, integrity and loyalty.
Founded in 1922 as Kramer Lumber and Supply Company, our business began as a lumber yard and show room in Clifton, New Jersey, where we provided high quality building materials and lumber millwork throughout the state.
The building boom in the aftermath of World War II prompted a natural progression into residential construction, which began our homebuilding business. With a focus on single family product, the second generation of principals built more than twenty thousand homes throughout the next several decades.
In 1952, Chandler Associates was established to provide a platform for developing multi-family properties. Over the course of the next twenty years, we created with our partners a portfolio of nearly ten thousand units, the majority of which consisted of garden apartment communities primarily throughout the Northern counties of New Jersey.
We have since transitioned from a residential focused company into a versatile and well-rounded business that endeavors to maintain the same principles of our heritage.
Through a strong network of associates, we have gained access to and invested in a unique collection of assets. Our direct equity participations include holdings in multi-family, office, retail, industrial, hospitality and self-storage properties across roughly half of the United States.
While we have been fortunate to enjoy a successful track record with our long time partners, we are always happy to develop new relationships both within and outside the scope of our area and expertise. Additionally, we welcome investment opportunities beyond real estate in private equity and venture capital that may create further diversification.
