CapGain, LLC Principals
Steve and Julie Williams are the principals of CapGain, LLC. After 20+ years at various Fortune 500 and Start-up companies, they decided to take their real estate passion and turn it into their full-time business.
As real estate investors for over 15 years on a passive basis, they decided it was time to leverage their corporate experience in financial management, negotiations, networking and marketing to build a real estate investment business. Their complementary skills allow them to focus on separate parts of the business while coming together day-to-day to manage various aspects of the projects.
Raised in Ohio, Steve graduated from Ohio State University and began his career in the telecommunications industry. He spent over 25 years as a sales management executive working for large Fortune 500 companies including AT&T and Sprint and most recently with Boulder-based start-up, Zayo Group. Zayo was a privately held company in early 2008 when Steve joined as Vice President of Custom Solutions. Zayo did an IPO in 2014 and is now a $9B Company. Steve left his role as Senior Vice President of Sales to focus full time on real estate investing.
At CapGain, Steve‘s areas of focus include deal analysis, financial modeling, contracts and contractor management. Steve utilizes his experience to ensure solid project selection and delivery.
Julie was born and raised in Ohio and graduated from Ohio State University. She spent 20+ years in advertising and marketing with large companies like DDB Needham Chicago and Motorola. She started her own consulting business in 2000 and developed marketing, communications and training programs for customers including Mercedes-Benz, ADT Automotive, Indian Motorcycles and others. Most recently, she led a large product training team for BMW, North America covering the entire U.S.
As a licensed real estate broker, Julie manages all aspects of the property transactions for CapGain. This includes sourcing properties through relationships with other brokers, wholesalers and MLS data mining as well as managing all the buy- and sell-side processes.
