Charles "Charley" Pettigrew


Charley is a partner at Clearview Investments. Charley began his real estate career in 1988 during one of the most turbulent periods in the industry. Since then, he has worked on transactions involving raw land (from ranches to assemblages), resort development, single-family and multi-family residential, retail, industrial, office, telecom, and mixed-use projects across virtually every layer of the capital structure. Given his diverse real estate background, Charley's responsibilities range from analyzing new acquisitions and assisting in value creation for those investments to the marketing and disposition of repositioned assets after value creation.

Prior to joining Clearview, Charley worked 3 years at Lone Star Funds in Dallas, analyzing primarily distressed real estate debt as well as other real estate focused investments (REIT acquisitions, operating businesses, corporate bonds, portfolios of real estate loans/franchise loans, etc). While at Lone Star, Charley personally underwrote over $200 million in actual acquisitions and over $1.6 billion of potential acquisitions. Prior to Lone Star and graduate school, he was with Carter-Burgess performing land development engineering design on large and small scale real estate projects, providing him with tremendous insight into issues pertaining to planning, design, entitlement and development.

Charley holds an M.S. in Real Estate Development from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Texas A&M.
