Ira Ury


Ira Ury is Managing Director of PMZ Realty Capital and is responsible for the Chicago office. His primary responsibilities include raising debt and equity capital for hotel owners. Ury has been involved in the underwriting, sourcing, and closing of over $500 million in debt, mezzanine and equity financing for hotels.

Prior to joining PMZ, Ury was responsible for the development and acquisition of hotels for First Hospitality Group, Inc. He has an extensive background in hotel operations, hotel brokerage, hotel development, hotel management, hotel receiverships and hotel franchising with companies such as: Omni Hotels, Days Inns of America, Hospitality Franchise Systems Inc, Marcus Hotels and Resorts, Extended Stay America, Carlson Hotels, US Franchise Systems, Inc. and Hotel Source.

Ury received his Bachelor of Science in Hotel Administration from the University of New Hampshire and his Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Illinois.

PMZ has refinanced a substantial portion of our portfolio: 18 loans for both limited and select service hotels across four states, in excess of $200 million total in-debt financing. I always value PMZ’s insight into the current state of the financing market. They are always responsive, enthusiastic and have in depth knowledge of the financing markets. I am confident that PMZ would add value as financial consultants/brokers from their experience in the hospitality industry.
