The Fund’s leadership is comprised of prominent Southern California business leaders with extensive contacts in the real estate community.

The Fund is managed by Jeff Burum and Matt Jordan, partners in the Diversified Pacific Development Group. At the peak of the real estate market in 2005, they sold off most of the company’s holdings to reposition for a market downturn. As the second phase of that strategy, they formed the Diversified Pacific Opportunity Fund to capitalize on the historic opportunities we see today.


Diversified Pacific founders Jeff Burum and Matt Jordan have raised the bar as industry and community leaders. Their shared commitment to building quality homes is second only to their philosophy of giving back to the Southern California Inland communities in which they build, work, and live.

Diversified Pacific Development Group is a builder of custom quality homes, developing single family home communities throughout the Inland Empire region. In 2008, with the financial and real estate market collapse, Diversified Pacific Opportunity Fund was founded by Burum and Jordan and emerged with private capital committed by nearly 200 investor members. This blind investment pool, operating over a fifteen year investment horizon, provided flexibility to purchase undervalued assets throughout the real estate cycle. Today, Diversified Pacific Opportunity Fund owns more than 5,000 residential lots and is fast becoming a regional homebuilding force. Diversified Pacific Development Group is the Managing Member of the Fund.
