Allagash Partners offers institutional and HNW investors strategies focused on the wealth of opportunities within the US residential real estate market, stemming primarily from the longstanding, massive shortage in affordable working-class rental properties. These investments are currently being offered as both multi-property private equity real estate funds and as single property investments for compelling opportunities that do not fit within any current Fund’s mandate. The strategies are designed to be scalable and to consistently provide 15%+ net returns while also preserving investor’s capital. Allagash, through its subsidiary Allagash Opportunity Zone Partners which is in process of registering both with the SEC as an RIA and with the CDFI Fund at the Department of Treasury as a Community Development Entity, began active investment activities in 2019 with the Allagash Opportunity Zone CRE Fund I. The firm is now launching the Allagash Multifamily Opportunity Fund I, which seeks to opportunistically purchase, intelligently renovate, efficiently manage, and strategically sell underperforming working-class rental housing properties throughout the US. Allagash was founded by Tony Barkan who serves as Managing Principal and CEO and chairs the investment and operations committees. Allagash’s senior partners bring over 100 years of commercial real estate experience with particular expertise in working-class multifamily housing especially in secondary US markets, which Allagash believes can provide investment opportunities with outsized returns and moderate risk. Additionally, Allagash believes that projects which actively seek to provide a positive social impact should generate higher returns while presenting lower risk. As a result, Allagash seeks to work closely with communities into which it invests in order to understand their community development goals and methodologies for improving stability and resiliency.
