ORG was founded in 1999 by Jonathan Berns and Edward Schwartz.
ORG is a successor company to Berns Properties, Inc., a real estate development and consulting firm founded by Mr. Berns in 1984. Since 1984, ORG has accumulated a diverse portfolio of real estate investment properties located in Northeast Ohio.
Prior to forming ORG, Mr. Schwartz was a Senior Consultant with a global institutional consulting firm. In 2005, ORG principals formed a separate consulting entity, dedicated exclusively to real estate and real assets investment consulting services. The considerable knowledge, skill and hands-on real estate experience attained through the principals’ successfully run real estate portfolio uniquely complements the consulting advice provided to institutional clients.
ORG is headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio.
