With over fifty years of combined construction, real estate development and finance experience, the Touchstone’s managing partners bring a skill set of uncommon depth and breadth to real estate investing. Between us, we have personally executed a wide variety of real estate transactions and held nearly every role in the real estate development process, from carpenter and electrician’s apprentice to general contractor and developer, from underwriter and originator to equity syndicator and hard money lender. Between smaller scale local investments with our own capital and positions held at top tier national commercial real estate shops, we have been involved with more than $400 million of real estate transactions over the past few years.
Thomas F. Meade
In order to learn the business literally from the ground up, Tom left the financial services industry to go to work in the building trades – initially as a carpenter’s apprentice and ultimately founding a residential contracting company. This entrepreneurial endeavor gave Tom the opportunity to oversee all aspects of a company and also provided invaluable hands-on construction and project management experience.
