Tailwind Group is focused on building and sustaining unique, amenity-rich developments. We strive to create a setting where property values exceed market trends and people understand the true meaning of community.

Executive Team

Tailwind Group is directed by a core leadership team comprised of the company’s four founding partners—Kyle Smith, Reggie Reed, Michael Sather, and Landon Smith. Each partner brings extensive investment, finance, and asset management experience to the team, as well as a broad network of industry and financial relationships. Most important, the four partners share an entrepreneurial vision. Their foresight in identifying purpose-built student housing as an emerging trend in the southern Minnesota real estate market has undoubtedly led to one of Tailwind Group’s greatest strengths: deep-seated experience in a relatively new asset class.
