Eric Kramer

Founder and President

Eric Kramer is founder and president of Structure PMG. Eric’s position puts him at the forefront of property management issues, real estate investment trends as well as market conditions.

Structure PMG has a mixture of third party property management (properties Eric does not have an ownership interest in and manages for clients) and properties that Structure PMG manages and Eric has an ownership interest in. This allows Eric to practice a core belief that to be a great real estate investor, you must be a great real estate operator. Through running Structure PMG, Eric has daily involvement with all the properties Structure PMG is responsible for. Eric’s approach to real estate management and investment is very active and very engaged.

Prior to forming Structure PMG, Eric was Vice President, Senior Development Manager for Essex Property Trust, a multifamily REIT. During his nine year tenure with Essex, Eric was directly involved with all aspects of real estate investment and development for over 1,250 units that, combined with Eric’s other responsibilities, represented a real estate portfolio valued at over one billion dollars.

Before joining Essex, Eric was a successful commercial real estate broker at Grubb & Ellis Company (now Newmark Knight Frank) and Sperry Van Ness Investment Real Estate.

Eric received his Bachelor of Science in Regional Development from the University of Arizona (1991), a Certificate in Construction Management from UCLA (2002), and an MBA from the University of Redlands (2004). Eric is a licensed California Real Estate Broker and a Certified Property Manager (CPM®) from the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM).

Through Eric’s 20+ years of real estate experience, a significant part of which has been at the institutional level, he has developed the necessary skills to successfully run Structure PMG’s real estate portfolio and execute the strategy to maximize each asset’s value.

Eric’s real estate track record is available upon request.
