The Zitelman Group

Welcome to the Zitelman Group

The Zitelman Group ("TZG") is a merchant and investment banking firm that has been family owned and operated since 1985. Specializing in real estate, closely held operating businesses, and other non-public investments, TZG is a direct investor as well as "fundless" sponsor with flexible investment periods and investment structures including:

We invest in sponsors and operators who have significant industry experience, are team players and share the desire for mutual benefit.

In addition, our operators must deal in business with honesty, integrity, transparency and open communication.

It is our expectation that real estate will be owned, operated and held for the long term. If an opportunity becomes available to exit at an attractive price, that is fine, too.

TZG can invest in non-controlling and minority ownership. We can lead an investment round, but do not need to. Frequently TZG co-invests with others.

Investments have ranged from $500,000 - $17 million, with the sweet spot being $2 – $5 million.

TZG performs much of its own due diligence and decisions are made quickly to respect everyone’s time and efforts. TZG remains involved in all of our investments through financial oversight and asset management.
