About Passport REI

Our team manages $30 million in assets across the United States, and we’re looking for team members like you to continue to grow.

A portfolio that spans the nation.

A unique mindset challenge exists in real estate investing from abroad – how does one invest in properties that they are unable to see in person? The flip side of this paradigm, however, is that freeing yourself from the need to be physically close to your assets opens the door to every opportunity near and far.

Our focus is on finding the best U.S. multifamily real estate opportunities from sea to shining sea, untethered by region, and the diversification and returns that come from our nationwide portfolio speak for themselves.

Lakemore & Moreland Place are two value-add multifamily apartment buildings, 66 units in total, located in Shaker Heights, a great neighborhood of Cleveland, OH.
