Canvass Capital

At Canvass, we’re a different kind of private equity real estate firm. While we seek out traditional sources of deal flow, our proprietary technology and relationships allow us to find smaller, uniquely sized opportunities that big-name real estate firms and banks often turn a blind eye to.
