THROUGH PASSIVE COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE INVESTING
Most commercial real estate such a multifamily outperforms the stock market, is the most stable asset class during a recession, and combines lower risk with higher returns to diversify your portfolio.
However, the greatest advantage of multifamily real estate investing are the unique tax advantages to preserve both your investment and ordinary income. Make your money work harder so you can achieve you financial goals while focusing on your career and family.

The best and fastest way to build wealth, especially legacy wealth, isn't through your income, but through how you add value to the world by investing in it. Furthermore, we believe that multi-family real estate is the investment vehicle providing the safest risk balanced with strong returns.

We do this full time so you can focus on what you do best in your career and in your family. However, because we are a small family-owned business, we partner with you to make smart decisions about your investing dollars and time.
We help you build your passive income portfolio either through limited (passive) partnerships, or more active joint ventures, by identifying and managing cash-flowing multi-family investments in key markets around the United States. We currently own and manage, or have exited, several hundred units in Pocatello ID, Salt Lake City UT, Louisville KY, Cleveland OH, and Little Rock AR. Creating opportunities for you to put your money to work for passive returns, or to be mentored managing actual deals, we love teaching you to gain the practical skills you need to manage your investment however fits you best.

MUELLER PLACE, AUSTIN TEXAS
110 Multifamily Units | Class C | Value Add | 506(b) Club Partnership FUNDED | Purchased Jan 2022
As 20-year residents of Austin TX where 5 of our children were born, investing there feels like coming back home. This asset was sourced off-market from a skilled operator who renovated some major exterior features like roofing and paint. Our club came together to partner with Zion Capital, Austin locals, to fund this amazing property near the downtown central business district with impressive projected returns .
HIDDEN VILLAGE, WARREN OHIO
118 Townhome Units | Class C | Value Add | Joint Venture Partnership FUNDED | Purchased Jun 2021
Positioned between the rapidly growing nearby markets of Cleveland, Ohio and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, this townhome-for-rent community is under contract for under $9,000 per door! This reflects a fatigued owner unable to put in the capital improvement funds to bring this back from over 40% vacancy while the nearby comps are 95% occupied. Our plan includes a professional interior and exterior design with ROI by Design apartment specialist to aggressively renovate 50 units in a "whitewash" approach, with the other 68 renovated over the next two years as tenants move out. Another diamond in the rough with the nearby neighborhood in better condition: our specialty of taking low-performing projects to safe, clean, affordable housing can shine on this property.

Purchased from an estate sale direct to owners, needing very little exterior improvements and huge upside with 7 ready-to-renovate, demo-ed, vacant units. Utilizing our established same property management and contractor teams make this project an easy win for the team.

The exterior and major systems were in good shape, needing only a new roof on two of the buildings, we have renovated half the units and quickly forcing appreciation.
RIDGELINE APARTMENTS, POCATELLO IDAHO
51 Units | Class C- | Heavy Renovation | 506(c) Syndication FUNDED | Purchased Feb 2020 | Refinanced and Stabilized Oct 2021
