About Us

JRE Private Equity Group creates commercial real estate investment opportunities across the Gulf South (and beyond) for local, accredited investors to participate in.  These assets are typically available only to real estate “insiders,” or institutional buyers like REIT’s or funds.  Our mission is to open these types of quality assets up to all capable investors, and not just a select few.

What we do:

We are constantly combing through real estate listings, reaching out to our broker networks and talking to real estate owners in search of assets that we believe possess exceptional fundamentals of Real Estate.  These are properties that we believe are solid investments today, tomorrow, and into the future – even after we have disposed of it.  With strong leases, creditworthy tenants and desirable locations, we believe these properties will withstand the test of time.  Through our network of private investors like yourself, we acquire these assets and provide our investors with a stable, risk-adjusted return on their investment.

How it works:

Each property that we underwrite goes through a rigorous due diligence process by our team. If it meets our high standards, then we will put together and send out a detailed Offering Memorandum through our online Investor Portal (click here to create an account).  YOU can decide if the time is right for you to invest or not. Once fully subscribed, we will close the subscription and move forward with acquisition. Our team handles every step of the process, from procurement to distribution, and you (the investor) get to enjoy the benefits of commercial real estate investment!

Successful Foundation

With over $160,000,000 of investments over the last 20 years, our principals have a long and successful history of providing our investment partners with quality commercial real estate assets.

Funds, REITs, and stocks don’t have relationships with you – we do.

Transparent Investments. High-Quality Support.

Private Equity investments can sometimes lack transparency, often leaving the investor wondering what exactly they have invested in, and why…  Building upon our successful legacy and challenging ourselves to operate differently, we strive add clarity to the traditional private equity model.  All of our partners have the ability to actually know, see and potentially visit the property they’re investing in!  We encourage our investors to understand all of the risks and opportunities associated with each investment, and if they do not feel that the opportunity is right for them, they are under absolutely no obligation to invest.  Once you become an investor with JRE, you will see that we have partnered with Juniper Square, an industry-defining software company that provides companies like us with state-of-the-art communication and asset reporting to our partners.  You will have access to our custom-built software platform, and will be able to view (on demand) everything from your personal return metrics to closing documents and K1’s.  We pride ourselves on offering accredited investors a variety of risk-adjusted investment opportunities, along with the relevant information they deserve to see.

We don’t treat commercial real estate like a commodity.

Trey Williams

Managing Partner

Though a native of Monroe, La, Trey has lived in and has been an active member of the commercial real estate industry in Baton Rouge and across South Louisiana or the past 15 years.  After graduating from the LSU MBA program with a concentration in Real Estate Finance, Trey began his career as a commercial real estate appraiser.  He then moved on to NAI/Latter & Blum Commercial Realtors, where he earned the company’s “Rookie of the year” award in his first year.  Shortly thereafter, Trey earned the National Realtor Association’s prestigious CCIM designation, was named to the Baton Rouge Business Report’s “Top 40 under 40” list, and was post recently appointed to the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry's (LABI) Emerging Leaders Council.  In addition to his 15 years in Commercial Real Estate, Trey has also been an entrepreneur and small business owner, co-founding both the City Pork Restaurant Group and also Southfin Southern Pokè.  Today, Trey’s full time commitment is to his partnership with Donnie, Josh and the investment partners of JRE Private Equity, bringing them commercial real estate investment opportunities that they would not normally have access to.  Trey is a father of 4 small children, an active member in his church, serves on several local non-profit boards, enjoys the outdoors, and has a passion for many odd and unusual things (feel free to ask!). First and foremost, though, he has a passion for Commercial Real Estate and wants to see it become an easily accessible asset class for the right investors.

Donnie Jarreau

Partner

Donnie has been behind some of Baton Rouge's most successful developments, with a portfolio of investments stretching from Lake Charles, Louisiana, to Pensacola, Florida. His passion for real estate and development is apparent, and those who work with Donnie enjoy the enthusiasm that has made him successful.  In his nearly 25-year career, Donnie has developed and acquired over two million square feet of commercial, retail, office and multi-family property.  Recognizing that every property, situation and client is different, Donnie sees that each new experience brings its own unique challenges, circumstances and advantages. When others skim the surface, he digs in. With creativity, dedication and diligent problem solving, Donnie is able to make his deals work.  Many of his projects, like Southdowns Shopping Center, Perkins Road Hardware redevelopment, Drusilla Shopping Center, and Eastbank Shopping Center, have been diamond-in-the-rough properties that, once reenergized, have helped transform entire neighborhoods and streetscapes.  Donnie has had several new development successes as well, including the 50,000 square-foot Perkins Palms mixed-use development and the 100-unit Elysian, a workforce housing complex designed to accommodate a wide array of mixed-income residents in Mid-City Baton Rouge.  Over the past decade, Donnie has acquired over $170,000,000 in retail Shopping Centers through different partnership-structured syndications that encompass well over 1,000,000 square feet. Outside the office, Donnie is a valued community member who volunteers with a variety of local organizations. He served on the Board of the Baton Rouge Growth Coalition, is Board President of the Options Foundation (which provides housing and services to the mentally ill), and has been a committed mentor in the Kids Hope program for many years. Donnie also founded Everyone Plays Sports Foundation, a non-profit organization that donates sports equipment to local schools and addresses child obesity issues.  Donnie is a lifelong Baton Rouge area resident, married to Barbara Parsons Jarreau and proud father to six children.

In addition to our existing team of real estate experts, we have assembled an Advisory Council of local business leaders, real estate investors and specialists in their field, to help advise us on the direction of commercial real estate investment as a whole. This arm’s length board of advisors was carefully selected to provide us with an additional layer of outside perspective that is crucial to what we do. We meet periodically with this council to discuss the macro-issues of commercial real estate: market trends (both locally and nationally); the changing legal landscape; banking requirements and relationship building; accounting best-practices; and current investor demands. We believe that the robust and diverse experience that this council provides equips us with the vision and foresight to serve our investors in the best possible capacity.
