History

Raxit Shah founded Liberty Group in 1980 with the purchase of his first hotel in Liberty Township, Youngstown, Ohio.  The company has since grown to more than $450,000,000 in investment experience including 55 hotels representing more than 4,000 hotel rooms throughout the United States. Liberty Group has maintained a reputation for integrity, transparency, and sound fundamentals that continue to benefit its associates, financial stakeholders, and local communities for more than three decades.
 
Liberty Group's calculated growth throughout economic cycles has been possible by assembling and retaining dedicated associates, committed suppliers and vendors, and institutional-quality brands that synergize with our team to establish efficient business and management practices. These fundamentals allow the team to identify and invest in high-quality hospitality assets with a competitive and sustainable business model. 
 
The Liberty Group team, led by second-generation hotelier Punit Shah since 2010, specializes in driving returns by identifying and acquiring management intensive, value-added investment opportunities and distinguishing itself through speed of execution and the ability to capitalize on complex situations. As a vertically integrated organization, the team takes a holistic approach to every aspect of the investment cycle, allowing Liberty Group to generate superior risk-adjusted returns.
