About Us

About us

At Crescere, we believe in growing long term wealth through real estate using the recurring revenue investment strategy.

Founded by Chris Hotze in 2005, Crescere’s purpose is to provide investment opportunities in commercial real estate to accredited investors. 

Chris’ father was a real estate investor and Chris observed him create a large investment portfolio in Houston, Texas. From a young age Chris was shown the benefits of recurring revenue which later guided his career into real estate investment, management, development, and acquisition. 

Our executive team carefully analyzes and selects real estate investments that provide impactful long-term cash flow. Through our offerings, Crescere Capital provides investors the opportunity to invest in repositioned urban core properties, legacy assets, and developments.
