Our Story

Freshwater was founded in 1994 by Alfred Sayegh and first made its mark in the Brooklyn multifamily and retail markets. Soon after, we expanded our footprint into Manhattan and Queens. Since 2013 Freshwater has been active outside of New York with a focus on Florida and Texas. Throughout our history, our principles and disciplined approach have guided us to success allowing us to expand into new sectors and markets while bringing value to our investors.

Through our role as owner, investor and operator, we are deeply involved in each of our investments from acquisition through disposition. Our reputation for negotiating and closing on various types of assets with speed and efficiency has led to many off market opportunities and relationships. Our hands on management style is the backbone to our success. From developing and implementing strategies for new acquisitions to identifying inefficiencies in our assets, our focus is to simultaneously improve the quality of the properties for our tenants while increasing returns for our investors. Our team has a thorough understanding of each of our core neighborhoods and is constantly cultivating strategic relationships and analyzing emerging markets.

Our Capibilities


Our acquisitions vary depending on location and deal type. They range from small to mid size commercial properties including retail centers and office and small to large residential properties. Freshwater targets investments in the following markets:

Texas - Dallas, Austin, Houston
