Connecting capital with yield
At Touchstone Capital Partners, we seek to match investors looking for higher yielding investments with developers and operating partners who are looking for reliable yet flexible capital. We have deep experience on both sides of the table – as developers, we’ve been in the position of securing capital (debt and equity) to do our next deal, and we’ve been lending and investing our own capital in various types of real estate transactions for more than a decade. From that unique perspective, we structure transactions that are truly Win-Win:
We provide solid returns for our investor partners and reliable capital for our borrower/developer partners.
An experienced team with broad perspectives
“Touchstone’s baseline value proposition is: We’ve been there, done that. Personally, I’ve taken a very literal approach to learning the real estate business from the ground up – from the physical work of general contractor to the mind-numbing details of LIHTC equity partnerships, over the past 15 years I’ve garnered invaluable insights into how real estate transactions are structured, financed and executed.”
“My background as an electrical contractor, home builder, real estate developer, and chair of the Plainville Zoning Board of Appeals gives me a strong skill set to underwrite real estate loans. My 10+ year track record of funding private loans with my own capital, combined with a finance degree from Bryant University and Certified Fund Manager designation from the American Association of Private Lenders, provides a solid foundation of experience & education as we continue to scale up our real estate lending and investment business.”
Looking for funding? We have it.
We have the experience to understand your transaction, and to structure a financing package that makes sense. We have the ability to review your financing request and issue term sheets very quickly (usually within 48 hours), and we’re lending our own capital – so we’re calling all the shots locally and have the ability to be both flexible and fast.

We’re also accepting a limited number of investors for principal development deals, where TCP will be the general partner/developer. We typically structure our joint ventures with a priority preferred return, then participation in the upside.

New Construction – Saugus, MA – TCP Fund I

Fix & Flip – Attleboro, MA – TCP Fund I
This is a very typical hard money loan – we advanced $160,000 for acquisition at closing in early September 2014, and will advance the remaining $45,000 as construction is completed. The scope of work includes a new kitchen, bathrooms, bringing the laundry room up to the second floor, enclosing a porch and some landscape/hardscape upgrades.
