Joe BoonePersonal Summary
I grew up in Maple Grove,  where I attended Maple Grove Sr. High. I went on to St. John’s University and graduated with a degree in Economics. While at St. John’s I interned with Ryan Companies and Oppidan Investment Company and it became Habitaty for Humanity - Joe Booneclear that after college I wanted to pursue a career in real estate, but…before doing so I wanted to travel the world a bit. In 2007 I moved to Chile where I built houses with Habitat for Humanity for six months. Upon returning, I worked at Oppidan for a few years focusing on the development of retail properties throughout the country. I then went on to earn an MBA from the University of Notre Dame where I gained an understanding of the investment side of the business, which eventually led to a position with The Excelsior Group after graduation.

At The Excelsior Group I work on the acquisition and asset management of properties associated with affiliated investment funds of the company. The assets I focus on are mainly value-add commercial properties in the Twin Cities area. Recent projects have included the 510 Marquette office building in downtown Minneapolis, the development of an L.A. Fitness in Maplewood, an industrial property in Roseville and a former auto dealership in the Stillwater area. I work to identify acquisition opportunities, put together a business plan for the projects and carry out the plan to the eventual disposition.

In my free time I enjoy hunting, fishing, volunteering, trying out new restaurants and going to my cabin in northern Minnesota. I recently completed the Tough Mudder, but will never do that again.
