About AJ Capital Partners

Adventurous Journeys ("AJ") Capital Partners is a vertically integrated real estate investment manager founded in 2008. The firm repositions real estate to build timeless, scalable businesses and brand platforms.

We deliver returns on transformative real estate by applying placemaking, inspired design, and hospitality principles to spaces overlooked or undervalued by traditional investment firms. The firm’s current portfolio includes $5.3 billion of assets across 100+ properties and 50+ geographic markets.

With a mission to humanize hospitality through handcrafted projects made by people for people, AJ delivers spaces that evoke emotional connections and become backdrops for enriching life experiences.

Our headquarters are in Nashville, with offices in Chicago, London, Miami, New York, San Francisco, and New Orleans.

We are connectors, challengers, storytellers, and builders who see opportunity where others see challenges and who refuse to be defined by other people’s idea of what’s possible.

Our Team

AJ's team holds experience spanning every facet of the real estate investment life cycle, including investment management, development, operations, creative, and corporate business functions.

Our full suite of in-house capabilities fosters dedication to superior execution and allows us to identify and transform underutilized real estate into highly coveted spaces that define their neighborhoods for years to come.
