The Benefits of Investing in Private Real Estate

  • icon
    Appreciation of Value

    Reliable income from real estate can potentially make a greater return comparative to markets, with less volatility.

    Tax Efficiency

    The ability to use depreciation and other write-offs can create powerful tax benefits and enable investors to maximize their after-tax returns. Learn More.

    Potential Inflation Hedge

    During times of inflation, private real estate can perform well. Short term leases in multifamily and other asset classes allow for the consistent ability to move rents with inflation.

    2023 Economic Outlook with CEO, Tim J. Wallen

    “Smart Real Estate Investments:” At MLG this is more than just a phrase. To us, Smart Real Estate Investments is all we do. We study the economics of real estate…

Don’t take it from us.

I’m thrilled with our relationship with MLG Capital and the Legacy Fund. At a time when our family needed a solution for reinvesting our capital, MLG Capital was there to provide a solution. MLG went above and beyond my expectations to facilitate our transition into the MLG Legacy Fund.

John S.

We have had an investment relationship with MLG Capital for over 15 years and during that time have invested and partnered in over 20 real estate transactions. While the team has grown in number, capability, experience, and breadth of coverage area, the core focus on finding unique “diamond in the rough” types of real estate opportunities providing current yield and capital appreciation with reduced downside risk has remained unchanged. The organization is built on a partner-centric foundation that starts at the top and permeates through every level and which has been successfully tested in both good and challenging economic environments.

Ron B.

We have personally invested with MLG Capital for many years as it offers a great alternative and diversification within an overall investment portfolio with outstanding tax efficiency. We have also introduced many of our clients to MLG and many of them have invested into the MLG Private Real Estate Funds for the same reasons. MLG is very astute & knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate investment & management and we completely trust them to manage the real estate portion of our portfolio.


Initially, I invested in the MLG Capital fund as part of my diversification strategy. I’m not a real estate pro, so when given the opportunity to invest in real estate through an organization I know and trust, it was an easy decision. My first investment was small as I wanted to “get my feet wet” and gain experience with real estate investing. Returns in the fund have been strong and the experience has far exceeded my expectations. The talented MLG Capital team finds opportunities to create value in the marketplace. Their capabilities continue to grow and expand, and I have made additional, larger investments in the subsequent funds, and referred family members and friends. Many have invested and are also very pleased with their decisions. Investing in MLG Funds is clearly the best investment decision that I have made in the past several years; it’s now a core element of my investment plan.

Tom F.

My family has millions invested in various segments of the market. Of all our investments, we feel most comfortable with the money in MLG when considering return on investment versus risk. Our family has worked closely with MLG for more than five years and I highly recommend investing with Mike Mooney and his knowledgeable group.

John G.

Investing with the MLG group has proved to be a smart business decision. Their knowledgeable team has a proven track record for investing in the right properties at the right time and knowing how to grow asset value over time. I have enjoyed working with and learning from the wonderful people at MLG. They are honest, efficient, caring and knowledgeable—the true secret sauce for success!

Nan G.

MLG Private Fund real estate investments have been a great addition to our portfolio, creating a steady stream of cash flow and tax deferral benefits. Since we are conservative investors in retirement we liked MLG’s business plan of leveraging properties well below others. Their knowledge of the real estate market has provided us with a first class list of diversified properties. We look forward to continued success with the MLG family for many years to come.


While diversifying our portfolio, my wife and I had the good fortune of being introduced to Tim Wallen, CEO of MLG Capital. Our returns have been consistent thanks to their intelligent, comprehensive, nationwide investment strategy in commercial real estate development. I wish our paths would have crossed 20 years ago.
