Our Story & Success


Real Estate Development &
Private Equity Investments


CEO Nick Dhanani’s Vision:

Dhanani Private Equity Group (DPEG) is a private equity and real estate development company based in Houston, TX.

Nick Dhanani, Founder and CEO of DPEG, always says that this company was created accidentally. Nick’s story came from humble beginnings when he and his family immigrated to the United States in the early 1980s where he landed in Houston, TX. His career started with him working the night shift as a cashier at a local gas station. Determined to grow and with a long vision, Nick aggressively saved enough money to buy his first business a few years later, and since then, he continued to scale his operations.

With the proceeds from his initial investments, Nick started to buy real estate in various high-traffic locations across Houston and neighborhoods. Coming from a close-knit family, Nick’s sister was DPEG’s first investor, and from there, friends, family and co-workers have joined as investors. The rest is history.

In the ten years since, DPEG has grown from a $20,000,000 company to doing over $1,000,000,000 worth of projects with a portfolio consisting of 40+ convenience stores, 40+ retail shopping centers and numerous multi-family projects. From Nick’s sister being investor #1, DPEG’s internal database of investors has grown to over 1,500 unique partners across 13 different states. DPEG has completed over 100 projects in the past decade, and we have not lost a single dollar on any of them. Our IRR has ranged from 7.7% to 178.80%, with an annual average of 20–35%. DPEG is able to provide such annual returns primarily due to one reason: we are the only unique company that does not charge any promote fees to our investors on any project.
