Who We Are

Founded in 2012, Sunstone is a privately-held operator, developer, and fund manager of multifamily real estate assets. Headquartered in Southern California, Sunstone creates efficient, secure, and quality apartments for working-class individuals and families located in affordable communities in the Sunbelt and Mountain States.

Our people and reputation are Sunstone’s greatest assets . our mission is to protect the investors capital and deliver compelling returns through every phase of the economic cycle.

What We Do:

By selectively acquiring existing apartment communities and increasing NOI through well-thought-out physical and operational improvements, Sunstone maintains a conservative risk profile while generating compelling returns to investors.


Why Multifamily:

Multifamily assets provide a place to live for many US households, a priority even when economic circumstances put pressure on discretionary spending habits. Current trends have increased demand for rental housing, including changes in lifestyle preferences and decisions to wait longer to start families. The sharp rise in home prices has forced many would-be homebuyers out of the market and multifamily rentals reap a significant share of this increasing demand. Unlike other real estate asset classes, revenue risk is spread over many tenants and is not dependent on the performance of a few major tenants.


Sunstone Advantage

Sunstone is a direct investor in real estate assets. By removing the need for other sponsors or funds, Sunstone can control costs, efficiency and quality – generating higher net returns to our investors. Sunstone’s principals and senior management staff have substantial real estate expertise, gained throughout varied economic cycles. Risk management is deeply instilled in our investment process. Attention to detail, no matter how small, is the key to Sunstone’s outstanding performance. Throughout the investment cycle, each business discipline focuses on the details to maximize returns. John Maddux and John Hansen founded Sunstone with the vision of building a company that generated compelling returns and protected investor capital with a team of great people. As a result, Sunstone’s teams work collaboratively in a congenial but hardworking atmosphere for optimal results. Sunstone operates a fully integrated platform allowing the firm to acquire, design & build, finance, renovate, operate and report on multifamily assets utilizing Sunstone staff. The platform allows Sunstone to maintain a hands-on approach to every aspect of the business.
