A New Approach to Rental Housing Investment in Brazil

Greystar is a leader in the investment, development, and management of rental housing in South America and globally. Greystar offers institutional clients a full suite of vertically integrated services, including pre-development, design consultancy, development management, investment management, and property management. The combination of our extensive global resources and our on-the-ground teams provide the know-how and local intelligence to adapt to the specific needs and requirements of each market, enabling us to deliver world-class services and create iconic communities.

We opened our office in São Paulo in August 2020. Working alongside two world-class partners, we closed our first R$1B joint venture to develop, own, and operate purpose-built multifamily rental housing in São Paulo. This milestone marks Greystar’s entry into the burgeoning Brazilian rental housing market and a further step in our continued expansion in South America.

Greystar operates rental housing communities on behalf of investors, owners, and our partners globally while providing residents with world-class personalized customer service experiences. Greystar-managed properties are run by local experts who are fully trained in our global processes and procedures and take pride in the performance of their communities. Each of our communities is designed and built to be efficiently managed, with input from our operations teams throughout the development process. Even the best designed building “hardware” must be brought to life by the operating “software” that is our property management business.
