CHARTWELL CAPITAL GROUP was formed in 2009 by Jerry Long as an evolution of Custom Living Communities, a national developer and builder of residential communities. In it's first 10 years, Long grew Custom Living Communities from a builder of three homes in the first year to one of the largest private developers in the United States and developed nearly two billion dollars of homes and commercial properties. Products ranged from multi-million dollar houses to low and moderate income apartments. With Chartwell, Long moved away from building with sticks and bricks to focus on the financial side of real estate and business ventures to partner with, fund or secure funding for other developers of projects such as residential communities, commercial properties, health care facilities, hospitality, energy and natural resources.

In 2011, Tobin Newman, founder of Barrons Hospitalitly, joined Chartwell as a partner bringing further experience and expertise for the commercial and hospitality sectors.

Chartwell Capital's mission is to collaborate with its partners and clients by providing and securing funding to acquire, develop, build or renovate real estate, energy projects, hospitality projects, health care facilities and natural resource projects.

In the course of accomplishing its mission Chartwell believes it has a responsibility to help improve the neighborhoods and communities in which it does business and to help support other organizations dedicated to improving society. One such organization, Platinum Minds (, helps outstanding boys from the inner city find better educational opportunities and develop their leadership abilities.)

The associated principals of Chartwell have a long history of real estate investments, finance and managing and developing properties. This history provides decades of experience in financial investments and real estate acquisition, management and development. Chartwell's associated principles have personal, direct, hands on experience in every task and skill necessary to evaluate, acquire, develop and manage real estate properties and evaluate financial investments. Each has spent their entire career in real estate disciplines and finance.
