Building Community through

Commercial Real Estate

since 2003

Our reputation for developing and managing commercial nonprofit properties is built on decades of experience in all aspects of commercial development. Effectively utilizing that experience in traditional development-related structures to strengthen community-based services is at the core of our work.
Experts in financing, construction, renovation and conversion of retail, office, special use properties, and community impact, the Ventura Partners team is curated by and includes Kim Frentz Edmonds. Now the principal & founder, she began as an independent consultant and expanded the company to what it is today.

About Us

Ventura Partners is a real estate development company that has brought an unconventional perspective to commercial real estate for almost 20 years.  We partner in projects to enhance community infrastructure, and implement & incorporate programming that supports the long-term health of neighborhoods while supporting opportunities for local ownership of assets and also seeking a competitive financial return to investors. It's a holistic approach that works in a historically single-minded industry.

Home: What We Do

Community Impact

We evaluate community returns right alongside the financial returns of every project, recognizing that they are complementary. When properly managed, what is good for the community is good for the bottom line. This, in turn, motivates the development of ownership structures that give our nonprofit partners and members of the community the opportunity for financial returns from neighborhood investment.

Undertaking and completing successful real estate projects is a complicated process that requires expertise in finance, team management, construction, and ultimately, marketing and facilities operations. Ventura Partners brings skills and experience in all of these areas, and then we structure projects with an eye toward community ownership for the long-term. We collaborate with our nonprofit and community partners to ensure that their priorities are served well by the bricks and mortar facilities, and that benefits accrue to the local stakeholders.

Project Management

Our clients are looking for the opportunity to use real estate to further their missions. Frequently, organizational capacity and experience is the only thing standing between their vision and a successful bricks and mortar project. Our professional services bring structure and expertise to mitigate risk and coordinate the countless activities required to meet their goals, keeping projects on track to meet financial and timing requirements. We focus on organized planning and ongoing problem solving to prevent delays and facilitate timely decisions. We closely mind the pocketbook while managing construction progress through the implementation of clear and detailed processes.

Signing Contract


Our long history of working with complex projects and multi-layered financing has served us well in developing a comprehensive understanding of financing opportunities, traditional and not. We help to conceptualize innovative combinations of debt, equity and hybrid mechanisms for reaching project goals, and then create the methods for making them reality.

Property Management

We provide the tools and administrative services needed to manage a wide range of property types. From mom-and-pop shops to large-scale commercial facilities involving complex co-location and shared space agreements, we have the know-how to manage even the most intricate processes. With a focus on maximizing the value of commercial assets and providing financial and programmatic benefits to our partners, we bring the organizational tools required to effectively manage properties that support the economic and social activity of the neighborhoods in which we work.
