Learn About Graystone Investment Group
Graystone Investment Group was established to provide investors with a one-stop shop for all their Real Estate needs. Based in Tampa, Florida, the business owns a number of specialist subsidiary brands that provide clients with a highly personalized service.
Graystone’s companies deal with a broad range of investors from around the world, from individuals to investment funds, and have tailored strategies to accommodate every scenario. The company’s team of professionals pairs investors with the best opportunities to match their strategies and requirements, whether it be flips, buy and hold properties to rent out, or land to build new homes on. Regular investors can also benefit from Graystone’s VIP service, which provides clients with priority access to the very best deals.
Due to close, long-standing relationships with our network of partner banks and financial institutions, many of these deals are usually exclusive to Graystone. Graystone’s Florida real estate spans from Jacksonville to Miami, with a strong focus on Tampa Bay, where there is still a huge amount of distressed inventory. This area is one of only a few in the U.S. still capable of providing high rates of return on rentals and strong profits on flips. Whether you are a first-time investor, or a fund wishing to expand its portfolio, please feel free to call us to discuss your requirements and to find out how Graystone can help you become successful in the Florida real estate market.
