About Us


At CIRE Equity, we focus on building a best-in-class organization to create and sustain prosperity for our community of stakeholders.

We believe that a large part of success is aligned around our unique core values that form our cultural DNA. We create an environment that allows our tenants, team members, and partners to show up as their authentic selves and bring their diversity of thought and experiences to share openly which drives better results and more innovation. We provide the resources for growth personally and professionally, as we believe our greatest assets are our quality relationships with our community of stakeholders.



We know that diversity of thought leads to innovation. We create a psychologically safe environment to encourage creativity to unlock hidden potential in all aspects of our business, from new technology to deal structures to rethinking the best and highest uses of our assets. We excel as proactive thinkers and problem solvers. We never settle for the status quo because we are passionate in identifying opportunities to add value where others may have overlooked.


Accountability is at the center of our culture. We believe “done or not done” is more than a saying; it is a conscious commitment to each other every day. We are a high-performing team that always strives to achieve beyond expectations for our community of stakeholders. We pursue excellence in all that we do.


At CIRE, we have a growth mindset. We continuously strive to reflect, improve, and evolve as individuals and for the assets that we manage. We are courageous and resilient in the face of potential challenges. As lifelong learners, we embrace the journey knowing that there is no best, only better.


Relationships matter. We understand our success is based on our aligned and authentic partnership with our community of tenants, vendors, investors, and employees.

The Impact of Diverse Perspectives

At CIRE, we practice a modern leadership approach where the inclusivity of people and diversity of thought, experience, and background are highly valued. This approach advances new ideas and fosters our entrepreneurial culture, creating opportunities and successful outcomes for our firm and our investors, partners, tenants, and employees.

Through our I.D.E.A. team, we strive to provide an inclusive environment where differences are valued, embraced, and celebrated so that everyone can reach their full potential.
