Our Story

2008

Founded

Founded by Chris Garvin and Barrett Johnston. Cadence began investing in value-add, multifamily assets with capital from friends and family. Cadence quickly established a vertically integrated platform by forming affiliates in construction (Cadence Builds) and in property management (Peak Living).

2010

Partners in growth

Cadence Real Estate formed its first joint-venture partnership with a notable investment management firm with over 75 years of successful operating history. The partnership helped Cadence grow quickly, with transactions totaling over $40 million in asset value.

2019

Achieving milestones

Cadence Real Estate began a two-year plan to professionalize its corporate and investment structures to meet the demands of a rapidly growing company. As part of this plan, the company rebranded its property management affiliate to Peak Living Property Services.

2020

Solid returns, steady growth

In our first 12 years, Cadence Real Estate executed over $300 million of multifamily transactions across over 40 investments. By 2020, the company had realized more than 25 of its value-add investments.

2022

Strong performance, bright future

Cadence Real Estate currently owns and manages 15 investments. The company continues to partner with like-minded investors targeting value-add investments in the Seattle metro and beyond.
