Andersen Capital Partners is a privately-held investment firm with a portfolio consisting primarily of real estate-related assets, including secured loans, agricultural and raw land, and leased commercial properties. Andersen Capital Partners began in its initial form in the mid 1970s when Darl J. Andersen began making small real estate investments with his family in the metro Phoenix area. Over time, the proceeds from these investments funded other land purchases and small development projects in Arizona. Over the course of two decades, Mr. Andersen continued to build this modest real estate portfolio while working full-time as Chief Financial Officer of Bashas’ Inc. and serving in various civic and service organizations.
In 1995, Mr. Andersen recognized a need to provide short-term, bridge financing to real estate owners and developers who were unable to secure timely financing through traditional lenders. This gave rise to Andersen Capital Partners’ commercial lending business, which is now a significant source of private money loans in the Arizona market. Andersen Capital Partners provides mortgage banking services through Andersen Capital Funding, Inc., a licensed mortgage banker.
Today, Andersen Capital Partners is managed by Mr. Andersen’s sons, who bring to the firm over 20 years of outside, prior experience in real estate finance, banking, accounting, and corporate finance. Meet the Team.
