Affordable Upstate is a regional multifamily investment firm with over $16,000,000 of assets under management. The firm repositions properties through operational efficiencies, moderate-to-extensive renovations and complete re-branding.
Partners Brian Albers and Mario Brown met in 2016 in Leadership Greenville (LG), the Greenville Chamber of Commerce’s flagship leadership program. Members of LG took an intensive look into the issues affecting Greenville County and identified the lack of affordable housing as the most pressing challenge facing the community.
Brian and Mario recognized they had the compatible skillsets of investing and construction and the mutual desire to improve the housing stock of their community. So in 2017 they formed Affordable Upstate LLC and purchased and began repositioning 63 multifamily units in the Upstate of South Carolina. The partnership now manages 250+ units and is actively acquiring more in the Southeast.
