Exceptional income-producing investments are hard for investors to find. Ones that can also provide robust capital growth are even more scarce. At SJS Real Estate Partners, we have a dual mission – (1), to deliver exceptional income every quarter to our investors, and (2), to deliver significant long-term capital growth as we build equity and add value to the properties. We’re delivering on both.
Today our combined holdings include investments in 53 properties with 6,556 apartment units and much more to come. These are the kind of private deals that people sometimes hear about, but rarely get to be a part of. Until now.
Launched in June 2015, SJS I invested in 6 multi-family residential properties with 364 apartment units acquired for $19.2 Million. The results have been remarkable. SJS I’s private placement offering was fully subscribed within its first 60 days. As early as the 4th quarter of 2015, SJS I began paying its investors regular quarterly distributions of income from the properties, and we’ve been doing it ever since. How is SJS I performing? Our quarterly distributions of income are already paying investors double-digit cash on cash returns. And in addition to the income, the value of the properties have appreciated so significantly that three of the properties were refinanced to pull equity out and return capital back to investors after only one year. To date, we’ve already returned over 34% of our investor’s capital back to them much earlier than projected, and have substantial equity in the properties. Exceptional income combined with capital solid growth – SJS I is delivering on its mission.
To continue all the momentum and success achieved with SJS I, we launched SJS Real Estate Partners II, LLC in March 2016. Using the identical strategy for our second, larger fund, during the next nine months SJS II invested in 11 mutli-family residential properties with 1,557 apartment units acquired for a total of $70 Million. And beginning with the 2nd quarter of 2016, SJS II has been paying investors regular quarterly distributions of income from the properties, with cash on cash returns that are following the same robust path as SJS I. In addition to the income, the value of some properties have appreciated so dramatically, that four of the properties have already been successfully refinanced to pull some of the equity out and return capital back to investors early. To date, we’ve already returned 27% of our investor’s capital back to them, and have substantial equity across many of the properties. Once again, exceptional income combined with solid capital growth – SJS II is delivering on its mission just like SJS I.
With our name firmly established, we launched SJS Real Estate Partners III, LLC in January 2017. It sold out with 92% of all the units being taken by investors from SJS I and SJS II – perhaps the best testament to how happy our investors are with the results we’re delivering. SJS III began paying investors regular quarterly distributions of income for its first quarter of operations and have been doing so every quarter since. By January 2018, SJS III was fully invested in 21 apartment properties totaling 2,651 units, and we’ve been delivering cash on cash returns that are following in the same path as SJS I, and most amazingly, are already exceeding SJS II. In addition to the income, the value of some properties have appreciated so dramatically in their first year, that three of the properties have already been successfully refinanced to pull some of the equity out and return capital back to investors early just like SJS I and SJS II. At SJS III, we look forward to continuing to deliver on our mission of providing exceptional income and solid capital growth with the same level of success as SJS I and SJS II.
All combined, SJSI, SJS II and SJS III are invested in 36 apartment properties with a total of 4,548 units acquired for over $200 Million. That’s an extraordinary achievement since first launching in June 2015, and what makes it even more remarkable is the exceptional income and capital growth we’re delivering to our investors from those properties. To continue all the success, we released SJS Real Estate Partners IV LLC in January 2018, which will be our largest and most diversified fund yet. To date, 17 properties have already been acquired totaling 2,008 apartment units with more in the pipeline. When completed, we anticipate approximately 30-40 properties will be acquired with an estimated 5,000 apartment units. Keep in mind that when we launched SJS III last year, it sold out with 92% of all units being taken by investors from SJS I and SJS II. While that was a true testament to our performance, it left very little for others, and the same thing is happening with SJS IV. So be sure to let us know if the income and capital growth offered by SJS IV is right for you before its fully subscribed.
Stewart Wilson, CEO

Beginning with his grandfather Sidney who started in the 1930’s, his father James who began in the 1950’s, followed by Stewart in 1985, his goal has been to carry forward that over 80 year tradition of success – thus the name “SJS”. And with investments in over 50 apartment properties with more than 6,500 units, and expecting to add another 20 properties through 2019, Mr. Wilson is clearly continuing that tradition of success to the benefit of all his partners.
In addition to having a family history in real estate spanning three generations, Stewart Wilson has been an executive in the investment brokerage business for over 35 years. Mr. Wilson became an active member of the futures industry in 1982. Within a few years, he founded his own firm, Strauss & Company, Inc., a full service brokerage firm providing investors and traders worldwide with access to a wide range of alternative investments traded on major exchanges in the United States and Europe. Through several acquisitions and mergers over the years, Mr. Wilson grew the firm into what today is known as Ironrock Financial.
By combining his over 35 years of knowledge and experience in global financial markets, his deep family roots in real estate dating back over 80 years, and holdings in over 50 apartment properties with more than 6,500 units, Mr. Wilson brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to SJS Real Estate Partners that is rarely found.
