Receive reliable passive income and tax advantages by partnering with us to invest in commercial multifamily real estate


Multifamily outperforms the stock market, is the most stable asset class during a recession, and combines lower risk with higher returns to diversify your investment 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.


You already have a successful career, and while you want to diversify your investing into real estate, you don't want to be a landlord or get a part-time side hustle. You're looking for full-time professional operators you can trust and partner with for passive real estate income.

You want the information you need, as much or little as you like, to make confident investing decisions while spending your own time on the things that matter most while we do the work.


As full-time landlords, multifamily operators, and renovation experts, we have the experience you're looking to partner with to invest in real estate with confidence.

Our background in entrepreneurial management by working and investing in startups led us to see we needed to diversify our stocks and private equity into real estate, where we can apply our business management skills to create legacy wealth for our family and yours.

We could tell you all about our credentials here while we try to look as impressive (and boring) as possible; but while our credibility matters, what you really care about is how we are going to help you build your dreams through passive income. 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 also see that you are a busy professional and maybe even a family person who doesn't want a side-hustle sold-on-late-night-TV real estate business. 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 by identifying and managing cash-flowing multi-family investments in key markets around the United States. We currently own and manage 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.

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.
