About Us

Who We Are

Valley ALF Ventures was founded by Jarrett Duncan and Serg Lupescu as a way to create new opportunities for both operators and investors in the residential assisted living space. For operators, we saw firsthand the need to provide quality homes to amazing operators who might not have the initial resources to expand their business into new locations. For investors, we wanted to provide a passive way to get involved in a growing industry while providing superior returns not tied to the whims of the stock market.

Both Serg and Jarrett share different backgrounds that ultimately tie in to make this operation as comprehensive as possible. For the previous few years, Serg has been operating his own assisted living business and mentoring other operators to successfully open their own business. Jarrett has been successfully building his own commercial assisted living portfolio.

Since March of 2021, Serg and Jarrett (along with another partner) have closed two deals consisting of 3 residential assisted living facilities. One is located in North Phoenix with the other two in San Tan Valley, AZ.

Our core values at Valley ALF Ventures are twofold: to always provide quality homes that our operators can be proud of and that residents will feel at home in; and to provide complete transparency to our investors while making their investment experience as easy as possible.

We strive to make a positive impact in the assisted living industry as we continue to grow new relationships and foster ongoing ones.
