Leon D. (Lee) Meekcoms. Lee began his real estate investment career in apartments in the Pacific Northwest. A downturn in the business cycle led him to the more stable sector of mobile home parks. He and his partners acquired 2 parks in Portland, Oregon, and expanded from there. Lee formed Parkbridge Capital Group to assist a California-based affiliate, to acquire manufactured home communities, mobile home parks and RV parks. Through the team’s efforts, the affiliate became the largest privately-held investment firm in the “park” business, with 70+ properties in 13 states and 30,000 spaces. In addition, he has been involved with $350 million in mortgage financings, including the first CMBS (Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securities) loans in the US in 1991. Over his career, he has participated in purchasing over $1 billion in mobile home parks and RV parks throughout the US.
