About Vesta Property Group

Vesta Property Group is a privately held real estate investment firm. Vesta’s real estate activities fall under two categories:

(1) acquiring for long-term ownership single-tenant and multi-tenant

properties leased to national and high-credit-quality retailers, and

(2) providing developers with equity-like financing for the

development of properties that are pre-leased to

high-credit-quality retailers.

Vesta sponsors real estate investment programs that offer investors exposure to a niche sector of commercial real estate: credit-tenant leased retail properties.

Vesta Property Group was founded by Aaron Stearns,

an experienced real estate investor. Stearns oversees

all investment sourcing, underwriting, and management


Prior to starting Vesta, Stearns originated and managed,

on behalf of private partnerships, preferred equity

financings for the development of pre-leased

high-credit-quality tenanted retail properties.

Previously, Stearns worked at Highland Capital Partners, a Dallas-based asset management firm, and Davidson Kempner Capital Partners, a New York-based hedge fund. At both institutions Stearns analyzed publicly traded real estate securities and structured mezzanine loans and preferred equity investments.

Prior to that, Stearns joined Kimco Realty Corporation, a publicly-held shopping center REIT. There he oversaw the repositioning of a multi-property portfolio and served as a financial analyst underwriting potential acquisitions.

Stearns graduated with a B.A. in Government from Georgetown University and with an M.B.A. from the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business.
