GREG CASON, PRESIDENT
A 25 year veteran of the multifamily housing business, Greg Cason has spearheaded the acquisition of over 25,000 multifamily housing units valued in excess of $1 billion. He was first exposed to the multifamily business as an asset manager at MetLife. While overseeing various property types (office, industrial, hotel, etc.) Mr. Cason made the decision to focus his career on multifamily properties. Over his career, he has held senior/partner positions at several nationally known multifamily companies (JPI, Archon, First Worthing) where he focused on the acquisition, financing, construction, and management of multifamily properties. In 2004, Mr. Cason founded a new company, CrestMarc, to continue his dedication to investing/owning multifamily investments.
