From its beginnings, The RAM Companies set itself apart from the crowd, with vision, creativity and a pioneering spirit. The company got its start in the early 1970s, when founder Howard A. Goldenfarb began acquiring properties in the Old Port Exchange district of Portland, Maine. RAM’s historic renovation of more than 20 buildings in this area is widely credited for the city’s revitalization.

One ahead of the pack


The firm is also recognized as a visionary in retail development. In 1983, when RAM developed the Maine Outlet, a purpose built factory outlet center, it was the first outlet center in Maine, and among the first 20 in the country. In the decades to follow, RAM would expand its portfolio to include residential communities, retail centers, and office and industrial facilities throughout New England and South Florida. RAM’s scope has become global, with ground-breaking commercial developments in the United States, England, Israel and Belgium.

Two Men in Office



The mission of The RAM Companies is to increase the prosperity of our associates and partners by strategically acquiring, developing, and managing real estate that adds value to our company's portfolio and to the communities in which we work and live. The principles that have defined The RAM Companies from our beginning are the same ones that lead us into the future: to achieve the highest industry standards and serve our tenants and partners with uncompromising integrity.





The RAM Companies has a long and successful history of developing high-quality commercial real estate. Our development team has extensive experience in selecting and developing exceptional sites based on location, asset quality and price with the end goal of maximizing returns.



We distinguish ourselves from other asset managers by bringing an owner’s approach to our clients. We not only seek to maximize the operating performance of a client’s existing or planned project but we also evaluate the asset’s debt structure, overall cash flow, capital improvement requirements and reserves, and market conditions to ensure the investment objectives are met.



At RAM, we manage every property as if it were our own, because most are. This philosophy has given us a reputation for unparalleled excellence in industrial, retail, office, and residential property management. Our property management services consist of managing building operations, maintaining the physical asset, leasing, and financial reporting.
