What We Do

T.D. Jakes Real Estate Ventures, LLC sources, underwrites, and develops real estate for the purposes of changing community and building wealth through partnerships that are experts and best in class in the real estate categories that build.


SENIOR LIVING

With life-expectancy and cost-of-living on the rise, the need for assisted living and memory care is greater than ever. TDJ-REV is committed to the development of high-quality, affordable senior living options internationally.


ATTAINABLE LIVING

TDJ-REV is developing programs to provide options that help families living in underserved areas realize and sustain attainable living with the goal of home ownership, if desired. Through educational programs and incentives, TDJ-REV will positively impact communities that have historically experienced barriers to home ownership.


HOTELS & RESORTS

TDJ-REV is entering into the hotel and resort development segment, both domestically and internationally. Our projects range from economy to upscale and resort developments.


COMMERCIAL & ENT

Mixed use developments are a major focus of TDJ-REV. Building community includes offering lifestyle options for the people living within that community. Convenience to groceries, shopping, restaurants and entertainment is essential.

Our Process

Our team possesses the experience, skills, tools and knowledge necessary to prepare and promote the property and business development objectives to achieve the community impact outcomes sought by the affected communities. We develop and implement proper and realistic metrics to measure progress in the targeted communities. 

Use of Alternative Financing

The TDJREV team understands the economic incentive marketplace and strives to blend the best possible economic development strategies with private equity and debt to meet the needs of the communities it serves. 

Core Team

Our core team includes many of the country’s leading community development experts, which allows us to easily incorporate suggestions for leveraging local and federal government agency programs (CDFI) and tax credit programs (opportunity zone) into our investment analysis criteria.

Investments

We pursue investment opportunities that incorporate the use of alternative financing to mitigate project risk and the use of market-based funding, with the expectation of developing a financially viable and sustainable outcome.

Tax Credits

We see government sponsored incentive programs such as New Market Tax Credits, Historic Tax Credits, Brownfield Credits, Tax Increment Financing, Opportunity Zones, real estate tax abatement and other tax credit programs.

Tax Incentives

Tax credits and incentives offer a significant benefit to our real estate investment plans by providing patient, low cost equity or debt capital that aids in mitigating risk. Community impact is achieved when we incorporate measurable outcomes by linking performance with the capital.

Smart Community Programs

Throughout his life, T.D. Jakes has connected diverse communities across socio-economic divides.

With the launch of the T.D. Jakes Foundation, in conjunction with its complimentary development entity, Chairman Jakes is harnessing decades of resources and connections to prepare people for success in the 21st-century workforce, uplift underserved populations and connect corporations to new, highly-skilled pools of talent amid increasing global competition. Some of the human development programs deemed critical to the success of this initiative include:

  • STEAM Program
  • Financial Literacy (MegCare)
  • Rent to Own
  • Recidivism (T.OR.I.)
  • Battered Women’s Program
