What Our Partners Say About Us

Tulsa Real Estate Fund

Tulsa Real Estate Fund is an impact fund built and designed to create an ecosystem of knowledge, resources, capital and investment needed to address systemic inequalities in underserved communities through group economics.

  • Tulsa Real Estate Fund is an economic vehicle named in honor of Black Wall Street which was created in the Greenwood District of Tulsa, OK by O.W. Gurley and represented one of the most prominent concentrations of African-American businesses in the United States during the early 20th century.

  • TREF is a Purpose-Built Fund with a double bottom line of 1) serving our community, and 2) producing a reasonable rate-of-return on capital contribution.

  • TREF is made up of 14K+ individuals, families, and small businesses who came together and contributed capital to take action and improve the circumstances of OUR COMMUNITY.

  • TREF invested private capital with six African American developers totaling more than $7,000,000 in private capital. Many of these developers commented that they struggled to secure private financing from main street banks even though the fundamentals of their real estate deals were favorable.

  • TREF invested nearly $1,000,000 in private capital with two African American women.

  • The Tulsa Real Estate Fund has received national recognition from Forbes, dozens of local news broadcasts, national print write-ups and online magazine coverage for both the historical significance of the fund and its early success in capital fund raising.

“We've got to strengthen Black institutions. I call upon you to take your money out of the banks downtown... We begin the process of building a greater economic base"

Martin Luther King Jr. | April 3, 1968

"They said that the Negro had no initiative; that he was not a business man, but a laborer; that he had not the brain to engineer a corporation, to own and run ships; that he had no knowledge of navigation, therefore the proposition was impossible. Oh! ye of little faith. The Eternal has happened."

Marcus Garvey, on the launching of the Black Star Line

How The Fund Started

The Corner Class
Tour

Empower The People

It's no secret that knowledge is power and experience is powerful. That's the basis behind forming the First Ever Black Owned, crowd funded real estate investment fund!

Grass Roots

In the rain, in the cold, at 7am or midnight... The Corner Class took the message of group economics to the streets.

Group Economics

Like a Union creates power through collective bargaining... Group economics creates power through collective investing. As a community, it's important for us to combine our resources to combat systemic economic oppression.

How We Made History

Our Early Accomplishments

On June 1st, 2018, Tulsa Real Estate Fund launched the first Black Owned Reg A+ crowd sourced equity Real Estate Fund.

Over $6 million was raised within the first weeks.

By July, 2018 Nine Thousand Partners had became a part of the TREF community. Many were unaccredited, first-time Real Estate Investors.

Founding Partners' names were memorialized on the
Legacy Wall housed at the TREF Legacy Center.
