Real Estate Investing to Reduce Violence with My City at Peace Co-Founder, Geoff Nesnow

written by Ryan Cox

Geoff Nesnow is the CEO and Co-Founder of My City at Peace.  My City at Peace helps communities reduce violence and as people begin to feel safer, local commerce increases, investors start investing locally, local social services become more effective and the neighborhoods become more desirable.

What’s the Big Idea?.  

My City at Peace helps communities reduce violence. When violence is reduced, property values increase – especially multi-family buildings. We invest in these properties to:

1) Deliver excellent returns to private investors

2) Fund My City at Peace’s work

3) Increase My City at Peace’s impact by getting a seat at the table as local property owners

4) Slow the detrimental effects on the community of gentrification.
