About Us

THE FIRM

Mack Real Estate Group was founded in 2013 by William, Richard and Stephen Mack whose family experience in commercial real estate dates back several decades. Headquartered in New York City, MREG is an integrated developer, operator, investor and lender with offices and affiliates across major markets of the United States.

EXPANSIVE HERITAGE

Over the course of more than 60 years, the Mack family has capitalized on emerging trends in real estate by adapting its investment activities decade by decade — pioneering in the development of suburban office campuses in the 1970s and 1980s; being an early-mover in the real estate private equity fund business in the early 1990s; and forming a specialized real estate credit management business in 2014.

Mack Real Estate Group seeks to combine institutional-quality best practices with the cultural and reputational heritage of a family office. Our goal is to be a collaborative, interdisciplinary real estate investment platform with outstanding responsiveness to and partnership with our stakeholders across the real estate sector including investors, borrowers, joint venture partners and lenders.
