Our Story

The Archimedes Group is a private real estate investment firm focused on mobile home parks in the Southeastern US. We leverage our Spanish speaking ability as well as our unique former vocational backgrounds to lead from the front lines, improving our properties in house and building vital local relationships face-to-face. Our in house operations deliver elevated value to our residents and strong returns to our investors.

We find meaning and purpose in cultivating safe, clean communities while supporting educational development. We proudly offer a partial scholarship to our residents as well as the opportunity to build credit while paying rent. Our business model serves the lowest third of Americans who can’t afford a single family home and seek modest housing with benefits apartment living doesn’t offer like a yard and a community feel.

Our company is named after Archimedes of Syracuse, an Ancient Greek mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor, and astronomer. He was regarded as one of the greatest mathematicians of all time and was one of the first to apply mathematics to explain the principle of the lever. In real estate, leverage is essential to the process. Through our regimented process, we multiply the gains for our tenants as well as our investors.
