  • Three Bulls Capital is a real estate investment company focused on a community-driven investing approach to single family housing in former textile milling towns in Georgia.
  • Three Bulls Capital focuses specifically on Middle Georgia communities where it can revitalize workforce housing neighborhoods through a sustainable model of secondary/tertiary market investments, self-management and a focused ESG component.
  • Eventually the team plans to extend their platform to additional former textile milling towns throughout the Southeastern U.S.
  • Middle Georgia has benefited from statewide efforts to develop new industry and Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in these communities that have sticky populations but also are attracting newcomers seeking quality jobs
  • Middle Georgia markets where Three Bulls Capital is most active sit along Interstate 75 and among major transportation arteries including the Atlanta Airport and the Port of Savannah
  • Three Bulls Capital collaborates with city officials, employers, and other key stakeholders seeking to uplift neighborhoods and renovate historic SFR housing
