Frazier has extensive experience in the multifamily investment sector. He most recently spent 11 years with Berkshire Residential Investments as senior vice president of investments. At Berkshire, he oversaw the company’s investment activity in the East Region and participated in direct investment of over 28,000 apartment homes which resulted in $7 billion in total capitalization.

Frazier graduated from Ohio State with a Bachelor’s degree in Human Ecology. He also earned a Master of Science in Real Estate Development from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Master of Business Administration (Finance) from Boston University Graduate School of Management.

“I’m thrilled to join the Mill Creek team and spearhead acquisition efforts in our target markets across the country,” Frazier said. “While we will remain aggressive in pursuing potential properties to acquire, we will continue to do so with a measured approach and seek opportunities that align with our investment criteria and long-term strategy.
