Couloir Ventures is a real estate development firm focused on build-to-rent development in the Washington-DC metro area.


At Couloir Ventures, we combine our 40+ years of expertise in the Washington DC real estate market to identify and execute build-to-rent projects within high barrier-to-entry submarkets. With experience in all facets of the development process, we are able to guide our projects from early-stage entitlements through to stabilization. 


Our portfolio includes build-for-rent development projects across a variety of sub-markets in the Washington DC area. By combining our development expertise with quality homes from our national builder partners, we create luxury communities that fit the needs and desires of all of our residents. 


Couloir Ventures, Inc. and its FrontDoor Communities brand were founded in 2019 for the sole purpose of developing and managing build-for-rent (BFR) communities in the high barrier to entry Washington-Baltimore metro area. 


Couloir’s founder, Karen McJunkin, has 35 years of experience acquiring, entitling, and developing residential, mixed-use, and multi-family projects in suburban Maryland as a Regional Partner with Elm Street Development.


The industry and market knowledge gained through this experience enables Couloir to identify sub-markets in the DC metro area with positive BFR metrics and source deals in those areas.
