He has long been dedicated to preserving and rebuilding his hometown and has expanded his portfolio to include projects throughout Illinois and the Midwest – he has a personal portfolio in excess of 1,000 multifamily units and his management companies operate over 4,500 units in the State of Illinois.
Davis’s business experience and responsibilities are diverse across various facets of real estate development, ownership and management. Under his leadership, his team has built a diverse portfolio of projects that meet the unique housing needs of communities across the region – ranging from gut rehab and modernization of former CHA buildings in Chicago to new construction of affordable single and multi-family housing in Monmouth, IL and Permanent Supportive Housing in Mount Prospect, IL. From public housing vouchers to market rate condominiums, Davis is a specialist in the public, affordable, and mixed-income housing arena.
Davis brings his visionary and strategic leadership to a number of companies and ventures impacting change in urban and rural environments.
