The Difference

The name Buhl Investors was inspired by the town of Buhl, Minnesota - a small city of one thousand located in the heart of the Iron Range. Buhl embodies hard work, grit and perseverance.   

Rooted in this heritage, the company aims to provide accountable management and best-in-class investment performance.  We are a small shop with a long term view of real estate ownership, providing flexibility and market leading returns. 

 Building on extensive real estate investment, development and management  experience that spans more than $200 million of invested equity, we draw on our institutional background and an ingrained entrepreneurial drive to create unparalleled value.
