Founder & CEO
Forman Capital was established by Brett D. Forman in 2004, and has since earned a reputation for creativity, reliability and integrity in real estate finance. Forman Capital has funded over $270MM in commercial real estate loans across the United States and prides itself in its transparency and its entrepreneurial approach to business in general and transactions specifically. During the downturn of 2009, Mr. Forman acquired an office building in Palm Beach, Florida and successfully gut renovated it and leased it to among other tenants, BankUnited. After adding substantial value, it was sold in 2013.
Mr. Forman served as President of CR South, a partnership between Forman Capital and Continental Realty of Baltimore, MD. CR South opportunistically acquired distressed and underperforming real estate throughout the southeast United States with a focus on Florida. CR South successfully entered the Tax Certificate business and raised $50MM and $85MM funds in the spring of 2009 and 2010 to acquire tax certificates throughout Florida. Additionally, it acquired over $40MM of distressed debt.
