Peter Slaugh

Managing Director

Peter Slaugh is the Founder and Managing Member of OpenPath Investments, formerly Su Casa Investments, LLC.

After his initial career in residential real estate starting back in 1991, Peter moved into commercial real estate in the capital markets arena with GMAC CM in 1997 funding in excess of $1billion in debt & equity products for his clients. Quickly, Peter recognized the value of investing in multifamily investments alongside his clients starting in 1999.

Peter formed Su Casa Investments in 2005 to acquire value-add apartment communities in the Western States. Peter has owned either as a GP or a limited partner over 4,100 units (dating back to 1999) in various markets ranging from San Antonio, TX, Las Vegas, NV, Richland, WA, to Santa Rosa, CA, and now owns and operates a portfolio of assets in AZ, CO, NV, OR, TX, UT & WY comprised of over 3,500 units and growing.

Recognizing the value in a “whole property stewardship” approach to the business, Peter evolved his platform to include “community building” and “greening” of resident lifestyles through the Urban Village program. The OpenPath platform is the latest evolution of this approach and really embraces the notion that “doing good” is also “good for business” and now measures success not only economically, but also socially & environmentally.

Gino-Select-6Gino Dante Borges, Ph.D.

Partner

Gino’s path has led him from a California dairy farm to earning a Ph. D. in Communications from Purdue University, from Nevada desert quests to family ranch stewardship. And now from old school real estate investing to impact investing.

Gino speaks and teaches about impact investing, multi-family real estate, community, wealth and stewardship. He has given talks at the Impact Hub SF, executive MBA programs, art salons, and recently, TEDx University of Nevada.

When Gino is not impact investing, you can find him barefoot in his garden.
