Originally founded in 1982 by Richard (“Dick”) Fine as Fine Investment Company the firm began acquiring mobile home parks, multi-family assets and self-storage facilities throughout the Midwest as a secondary investment vehicle for high net worth individuals. After several years of syndicating real estate investments as a hobby Dick left his role as an executive at a public company to pursue his true passion; commercial real estate investing. Dick combined his extensive background in finance and accounting with his knowledge of Midwest real estate markets to develop a real estate investment platform catered to his investors risk tolerance. Over the next thirty years Fine Investment Company would grow into one of the most active private capital real estate investment firms in St. Louis. In 2008 as the global economic environment abruptly changed, wreaking havoc throughout the Midwest, Fine Investment turned the chaos into opportunity, continuing to acquire new assets and grow its investor base. The continued growth and transformation of the company during the Great Recession propelled Fine Investment Company into its current form, Integris Ventures. The change in corporate identity signified what the company has always been about, integrity and transparency. In 2013, Jason Fine took the helm as the President of Integris Ventures bringing the firm into a new generation of excellence in real estate investment.
