About us

Aron Developers Inc. is a technology driven Real Estate Development company. We started in 2013 with the mission to revolutionize real estate development by using best in class software tools or build our own software tools in the four core areas of our business - acquisition/diligence, capital formation, operations and sales.

We started with building single family homes and have sold 9 SFRs in Palo Alto, Cupertino, Los Altos and Campbell. Currently we are building 14 SFRs in Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Belmont and San Jose. As of early 2017, we have evolved to undertake high density projects - apartment buildings, condos, townhomes and other mixed use projects.

We focus on finding high quality in-fill re-development opportunities in the San Francisco Bay Area and manage the entire lifecycle of the project - acquisition - entitlements - construction - lease out - refinance / exit.

Acquisition/Diligence

To find our projects, we work with several realtors/brokers who bring us off-market deals. We have also built tools and processes to do direct out-reach to property owners. We work aggressively to identify as many risks as possible to the project and work diligently with city governments, agencies, consultants and partners to eliminate or minimize those risks.

Capital Formation

Since 2014, we have used JOBS act and crowdfunding laws to do capital formation for our projects either working with 3rd party platforms or using our own crowdfunding portal. We have a fast growing network of investors who participate in different tiers of capital stack for each project.

Operations

Our Operations team focuses on tightly managing cost and timeline on our projects by identifying great contractors, consultants to partner with, negotiating tight contracts and managing to those contracts. We have built tools that streamline payments for vendors and subcontractors while reducing risk for investors.

Sales

For the most part, we pre-sale or pre-lease our homes/units. At the very beginning of each project, we identify all finishes and scope. Once its locked, we build high quality 3d-renderings, videos, pictures which not only becomes our marketing material but also allows us to have a definitive contract with a buyer. This in turn reduces the market exposure risk for our investors.

Our core values are Integrity, Hard work and Delight for our customers, employees, partners and investors. We are always looking to find highly passionate and motivated individuals to join our team in different roles.
