Building legacies for investors, team members and communities

Enabling the discovery and implementation of tax-advantaged real estate investments with unwavering integrity

Developing best-in-class multifamily and build-for-rent communities synonymous with value and quality

Managing multifamily properties with a drive for innovation and excellence

In 2012, when our founder and co-CEO, Louis Rogers, partnered with colleagues he respected from prior firms, together, they seized their combined expertise across multiple fields to develop a new “investors-first” business model. Shaped by steadfast integrity and entrepreneurial gumption, Capital Square began as a Section 1031/DST sponsor but has since grown to be a diversified real estate manager, operator and developer.

Although Delaware statutory trusts (DSTs) remain the foundation of our business, we have rapidly diversified with numerous development projectsqualified opportunity zone funds, a real estate investment trust (REIT) and an institutional fund.​

Developing and managing the future, one property at a time

Our founder and co-CEO, Louis Rogers, is an acknowledged expert on Internal Revenue Code Section 1031 as well as an influential tax, securities and real estate attorney. He is a past finalist for the EY Entrepreneur of the Year Mid-Atlantic and has been named one of the most powerful and influential leaders on the “Virginia 500 Power List” by Virginia Business and an “Influencer in Multifamily Real Estate” by GlobeSt Real Estate Forum. He is also the recipient of the 2022 Frank N. Cowan Silver Hope Award. There are countless reasons why these recognitions were well earned.

From the beginning, Capital Square has reinvested most of its profits into the business. This has accelerated our growth to $6.3 billion in assets under management (AUM) and driven our success as a top-tier DST sponsor. 

Capital Square has been recognized by Inc. 5000 as one of the fastest-growing companies in the nation for seven consecutive years. In 2017, 2018 and 2020, the company was ranked on Richmond BizSense’s list of fastest-growing companies, and Capital Square was listed by Virginia Business on their “Best Places to Work in Virginia” report in 2019 and their “Fantastic 50” reports in 2019 and 2020. In addition, Capital Square was named a “Top Workplace” by the Richmond Times Dispatch in 2023.

More than ten years after our founding, our singular investors-first purpose remains paramount — now with over 6,000 investors nationwide. And our purpose, mission, vision and core values are stronger than ever. We are building something bigger than ourselves, rallying our team in pursuit of being the change needed in the communities where we work, live, build and invest.
