A little bit about who I am

I am a Milwaukee businessman who earned his B.A. in Finance from George Washington University in Washington D.C. In 2004, I began investing in real estate and I’m currently involved in real estate acquisitions, hard money lending, private equity, hospitality, and property management.

I am the founder and president of F Street Group, which has interests in the Financial, Healthcare, and Hospitality industries. Through these entities, I have created a truly diversified asset portfolio that includes multiple investment businesses and high-profile restaurant groups.

I am currently a board member of MKE Brewing Co. and Smart Choice MRI.

What I’m good at and where I make money

While I got my start in real estate, my business interests have since expanded and created opportunities for me to learn and succeed within additional industries, as well as a number of different projects and partnerships.


Since getting my start in real estate investment, Jomela Properties now owns and operates over 1,500 rental units in and around the
city of Milwaukee.


Through Milwaukee Hard Money, I have been a private lender that provides commercial real estate loans for acquisition, renovation, and refinancing of projects, which has generated over $50 million in financed deals.


Both the Armada Equity Partners and Arbel Growth Partners have been founded and maintain brands through private equity investment.


Through Armada and Arbel, myself and my partners have grown these investment groups through strategic and successful acquisition of companies that meet the standards we’ve set in our mission and objectives.


Investors have placed their trust in me to deliver them high-yield returns on real estate and finance opportunities.


I’ve owned and developed a number of hospitality establishments over the years, including Milwaukee Brewing Co., Pizza Man, Glass + Griddle, Timmer’s Resort, and more.
