Paul D. Stell

Paul Stell is the Co-Founder and Managing Director of The Stellar Family of Companies. In his capacity Paul drives the company’s strategic initiatives, leads its investment activities and promotes the company’s culture.

Paul credits the hand of providence guiding his chance encounter with his future partner and mentor, Mr. Steve Hurt at a Toastmaster’s meeting during Paul’s senior year at Texas Tech. “Interning for Steve opened a window for me into the world of real estate investments and development” Paul explains, “although I worked for free, I was richly rewarded through the incredible learning and mentorship of Steve Hurt.” Later Stell would attend Harvard University.

For more than 25 years, Paul has been committed to creating a fully integrated private equity real estate firm which consistently achieves “stellar results” through specializing in the investment, development, construction and management of multifamily assets.

Faith and family mean everything to Paul. Married to Susie and blessed with three children, if he isn’t focused on his favorite hobby (all things multifamily) he is hard at play with the kids.
