Six decades ago, the Dunton family owned land of considerable value. Dwight Dunton, Sr. wasn’t a real estate expert, but he knew partnering with the right people could create a sustainable future for his family. After collaborating 50/50 with a developer, the family transformed that valuable land into generational wealth. The Dunton family story may be similar to yours.
Today, Dwight Dunton, III finds himself on the other side of the equation as that right partner in real estate development.
The informal story of Bonaventure may be familiar. Bonaventure started with Dwight in his bathrobe in his spare bedroom intent on accomplishing something everyone else thought was crazy: have Fannie Mae loan $18 million to a 25-year-old with no real estate experience so he could acquire a 378-unit apartment complex and start a management company. This single accomplishment set the tone for Bonaventure’s evolution. Its success and growth stems from seeing value in what may appear to others as crazy.
Today, Bonaventure is an experienced real estate investment firm with billions of dollars in transactions, hundreds of employees, and multiple engines of growth. However, Bonaventure has never been about real estate; Bonaventure is about people and what they can accomplish when aligned around a common goal. We don’t aim to be the biggest at what we do; we aim to be the best at what we do. We seek not only to find the best partners in new endeavors but to be the best partner in all our endeavors.
