Co-founder and CEO at Vesper Holdings in New York, New York

Elliot J. Tamir


Elliot J. Tamir co-founded Vesper Holdings to focus on private equity real estate investment in both commercial and residential properties. With almost 20 years in the real estate business including residential, commercial, development and parking, Mr. Tamir’s invaluable experience serves Vesper well in its continued pursuit of opportunistic real estate investments nationwide.

In 2010, Vesper Holdings launched its student housing acquisition fund. The cornerstone of Mr. Tamir’s investment and management strategies has always been his focus on key niche sectors experiencing strong demographic growth, historic resistance to economic downturns and fragmented ownership. His keen operational and construction knowledge coupled with his exceptional management style will assure optimal performance throughout Vesper’s portfolio.

In 1999, Mr. Tamir created The Tamir Group to focus on the acquisition and repositioning of mixed-use properties in the historic Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, New York. Mr. Tamir realized that young urban professionals and artists living in Manhattan were willing to move to Brooklyn, live in larger spaces for half the rent and commute to the city in less than fifteen minutes on the L train. He quickly capitalized on the opportunity by amassing a portfolio of properties throughout the borough.

In 1990, Mr. Tamir began his career by establishing The Tamir Parking Corporation, a company that focused on the acquisitions and management of New York City parking garages. While many parking operators were overextended and trying to reorganize due to the recession, Mr. Tamir recognized that it was an opportune time to enter this niche business. In his capacity as President and CEO, The Tamir Parking portfolio grew to over 20 core Manhattan locations.
