Elmdale Partners ("Elmdale"), a leading integrated B2C residential services platform in brokerage, title & settlement, and property & casualty insurance, has closed a recapitalization and growth capital investment by Stellus Capital Management, LLC ("Stellus"), a Houston-based private equity firm and publicly traded BDC.

Elmdale Partners has closed over 40 acquisitions to date and the growth investment by Stellus will allow Elmdale to accelerate growth in current and new markets through M&A opportunities. In addition, the investment will enable technology upgrades to support Elmdale's CENTURY 21 franchise network of independent agents and also refinance existing debt. The new partnership combines Elmdale’s deep industry expertise, uniquely integrated platform, and growth-oriented culture with Stellus’ successful track record of supporting middle market businesses during key periods of growth.
