Viking Partners is an investment management firm with primary focus in value-add and core-plus real estate in all asset classes. Since Viking’s founding, we have acquired under performing assets and enhance their value with the implementation of targeted property level strategies.

Viking was founded in 2008 by Bret Caller and Steven Miller. Bret and Steve bring over five decades of combined experience in acquisitions, financing, leasing and property management. Viking has raised approximately $390 million of equity, mostly from high net worth individuals and family offices resulting in the acquisitions of approximately $1.2 billion of real estate. Most of this equity has been invested through five separate real estate funds. With over a billion dollars of acquired assets, Viking is currently making investments on behalf of Viking Partners Fund V and Viking Partner Income Plus Fund I.
