In 1994, following a distinguished 15-year career as a multifamily investment broker specialist at Marcus & Millichap, Henry Manoucheri founded Universe Holdings. Over the course of four decades, the company has successfully executed investment transactions involving the acquisition and sale of over 7,000 multifamily apartment units, with an aggregate transaction value of $2.5 Billion. Currently, Universe Holdings boasts a comprehensive portfolio of multifamily properties strategically located in the largest cities of Southern California and in high barrier-to-entry markets nationally. In addition to owning the assets, the company also manages them internally, ensuring a hands-on approach and attention to detail.
