About Johns Creek Capital, LLC

Johns Creek Capital, LLC is a privately held investment firm concentrating on the acquisition, development, and management of value-add mobile home park communities nationwide to maximize investor returns and mitigate risks through geographic diversity.

Proprietary Process: The firm utilizes a proprietary evaluation process to weigh each of our acquisition criteria for a targeted asset. This process yields an overall “PASS” or “FAIL” score and helps to identify assets with the greatest potential for meeting expected returns. Benefits to our approach include Objective Analysis and measurable Key Performance Indicators.

What’s Ahead: In late 2022, Johns Creek Capital intends to establish various real estate funds to acquire existing and future deals which will further diversify an investor’s portfolio, mitigate investment risks, and facilitate the acquisition of larger parks to increase investors' equity value.
