Community Service

Believing in doing the right thing applies to more than just business practices. Cardinal CARES is made up of team members who volunteer within the communities Cardinal touches most.

What We Stand For

Have Passion

Passion and determination are far more important than natural ability. We never quit, but persevere and thrive on adversity. If knocked down, get back up, every time! It's rarely the most talented or smartest who "win," but rather those who stick it out through sheer force of will.

Understand People

We pride ourselves on hiring the best and brightest people with exceptional character. We don’t want to be viewed as just an “employer”, but rather a place of excitement. This is an engaging think tank and a group of people looking to challenge each other and become better together.

Be Humble

Always maintain an air of uncertainty about our business. Under promise and over deliver. Men and women of character never boast, if you desire to have people talk about you and the company, say little and do the right thing. Let the scoreboard do the talking.

The Cardinal Story

story image

A FEW YOUNG MEN

Shared a vision predicated on the belief that...

story image

Hard work combined with ethics and integrity would build a successful company that would make their momma’s proud.

story image

That vision came to life with the purchase of a single family home in southern California in 2004.

story image

Since the days of maintaining this home themselves, Cardinal Group has grown into a fully-integrated real estate investment, development, management, construction and marketing firm that operates a diverse and growing portfolio of multi-family properties around the country. Momma approves!

FROM THE BEGINNING

Cardinal Group has been committed to effective ownership and operations run by people who believe in the same thing that founded this company...culture! We can’t speak highly enough about the environment Cardinal evokes and the people it attracts. We are 750+ strong in determination, creativity, teamwork, knowledge, and fun. We want to achieve nothing but the best on every project we take on and with every client we meet. Because to us, that’s all part of doing the right thing. We want our reputation as an organization to speak for us and continue to attract exceptional team members as we continue to grow and do our best every day.

What Our Clients Say About Us

Rooted in Denver & Austin

As Cardinal Group continues to grow, the need for expanding Cardinal’s reach became a reality. Colorado has been the primary home for Cardinal Group since 2009, but expanding our headquarters (or HQ as we like to call it) HQ presence outside of Denver was a big and exciting move for the company in 2018. Thinking through this strategy, our hearts kept drawing us to Texas. It’s no surprise that we chose Austin, a great hub for forward thinking and innovative talent, with a similar city culture to Denver and we intend to help keep Austin weird...kind of.
