Joseph Schults, Founder/Managing Partner, formed Marquee Partners in 2021 after observing the growing disconnect between real estate developers/flippers/investors and capital providers. Borrowers, often times, become intimidated and overwhelmed with the sheer amount of hard money lenders/private capital offering various structures that time does not allow in this market.
Joseph began his career in New York, NY in 2008. Since then, he has worked with broker-dealers, hedge funds, and investment banks where his experience has been in the distressed mortgage-backed and asset-backed securities sector.
Recognizing value in the private credit space, Joseph has raised over $100 million in debt financing (senior/mezz/preferred equity) for CRE developers and renewable energy companies.
Joseph received his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Massachusetts' Manning School of Business, with a dual concentration in Finance & Management. Joseph holds his Series 7 & 63 licenses through FINRA. He now resides in south Florida with his wife and daughter.
