How We Got Started

United Investments was founded in Washington DC in 2007 by the Tesfaye brothers—Henok, Yared, and Beneach of whom brings with him more than 15 years of experience in real estate development, management and sales. The firm is the fourth addition to the family’s ever-growing portfolio of companies in the real estate industry. 

It all began in 2000 when the family purchased their first home in Washington DC. As first generation immigrants to the United States, the pride of ownership resonated even more strongly among the brothers. Combined with diverse entrepreneurial backgrounds and drive, the purchase sparked the beginning of their journey to provide quality products and services that will instill that same sense of pride in the owners of each property they develop.

We have a proven track record of weathering one of the worst real estate meltdowns in 2008 and come out the other side stronger and more profitable. 

The brothers other companies include U Street Parking, DC General Construction, and Potomac Management Group.
