Elite Destination Homes has been helping families share ownership in a special vacation home in a destination they love since 2005.  “People are attracted to us because we are unique, and it feels like a friends and family business model with clear rules that govern it,” Bill Bisanz, founder of Elite.

We are a division of Real Estate Equities, which has over 4 decades of committed teamwork caring for and optimizing the value of investment real estate.

Real Estate Equities is a privately held, reputable and respected company located in Saint Paul, Minnesota started by Robert Bisanz and Terry Troy, well established Saint Paul families and Notre Dame graduates that first were friends, then business partners – and still friends!  They started by organizing a group of individuals to own a multi-family apartment building.  Terry and Bob would manage all aspects of the business and report back to the investors on a quarterly basis on the financial status of the building.

Bill Bisanz, 2nd generation to one of the Founders of Real Estate Equities, had an idea to create a similar real estate business model to that of the parent company, however with multi-million dollar vacation homes.  So began Elite Destination Homes.  We started in the Turks & Caicos purchasing an oceanside villa and tapped into the well-established networks of attorneys, accountants, managers and processes for running a shared ownership real estate. Elite has flourished over the past dozen years.
