We are a collective of companies focused on development, acquisition, property management, and construction management.

The naming of the new parent company was inspired by author Alexander Dumas’ most enduring characters, Edmond Dantes and Abbe Faria. Like our protagonists, we trust that when you work with us, you’ll find that we are unabashed dreamers and precise doers. We help you make sense of your real estate development and management problems; we creatively drum up solutions out of seemingly unconquerable odds; we gravitate towards complex deals most development firms would turn down. And we specialize in making the impossible possible. We used this inspiration to name our new parent company.
