About Cira Capital Group

Mark Cira and Ada Li are the co-founders of Cira Capital Group, and we have been active in the real estate industry since 2006.  Through many conversations with friends, relatives, and business associates, we found that so many wanted to diversify their 401(k) and IRA investment portfolios by including private real estate.  They just didn’t know how or where to start.

At the same time, we were actively searching for larger real estate investment opportunities for ourselves. After building and remodeling several homes, we decided to re-invest our returns into income-producing rental properties. 

We learned the business fundamentals, market conditions, and investing possibilities, and then we began identifying great operators to partner with.  After sharing our experience with our networks, others wanted to collaborate and invest with us. 

In 2017, we formed Hardscrabble Investments, which was rebranded in 2021 to Cira Capital Group. The name changed, but our ethos has stayed the same: to help connect those who desire to invest in private real estate with operating partners who are seeking investors. We bridge this gap with knowledge, time, experience, confidence, and trust by educating and informing our clients, co-investing in every deal, and working directly with our vetted operators on each venture.
