8 Weeks. 12 Real Estate Investors
Investing in commercial real estate (CRE) is not easy, especially if you're trying to do this on your own. The Club Syndication is kept small intentionally - so that you can get to know the other 11 members in your "Boat Crew".
When I trained with Navy Seal Commander, Mark Divine (in his Unbeatable Mind and then 20x crucible) there was 1 common theme: alone you will fail, together you succeed.
Investing in CRE is not a lone wolf sport. No one has all the answers. Finding great people and building a team takes time- but, this is what separates CRE investors from the masses.
During the 8 week program there will be opportunities to send your live deals for reviews. One of the most valuable aspects of the Program is that you get a chance to Pitch your deal to me and the group (if you would like to).
Get feedback from others who have no incentive to push you into a deal. This unbiased guidance and feedback is rare, and what I have found most of my clients apprecaite the most.
Tell me the good, bad and ugly. When your investing your hard earned money, you want the truth.
The Club Syndicate 8 Week Program™
Over the past 15 years, Shane has invested in Commercial & Multifamily Properties across Canada and the US. He has helped clients transact more than $260,000,000.
Now, he's helping professionals, business owners and real estate investors invest with confidence in poorly understood world of commercial real estate. So you can earn income without trading time and the time freedom to chose what's most important to you.
This is not Zero Money Down or Get Rich Quick. Investing in CRE requires patience and effort.
Taking 100% responsibility for your outcomes. In my experience, it's why few investors ever scale into 7 and 8 figure properties. They are sold a false promise - that investing in commercial or multifamily properties is easy and can be done by anyone.
I take a different approach.
I'm going to tell you upfront, I don't think investing in CRE is for everyone. It's not something you can half ass and get results.
The high barriers to entry are what make it so lucrative.
The harder something , the less people will stay the course.
It's why when we meet a Navy Seal, or Olympic athlete, we respect them. We know the sacrifices and mental toughness required to get there.
I'm not comparing a CRE Investor to a Navy Seal. But, those who succeed, as Active Investors (finding deals) - are committed and when they have a deal, understand the work involved. It's why, in my experience, CRE Investors have a different level of authority and respect than typical res investors
1) Active Real Estate Investors - (Finding Deals, Raising Capital)
You want to scale into 7 and 8 figure commercial properties. You will do the work to find the right properties and raise the money (if required) to close.
2) Passive Investors - (you find the right People to invest with).
Your time is best spent making money and finding the right 'who's' to invest with. You want to understand the Game of investing in CRE so you can invest with confidence.
This 8 week program is designed so that you can invest with confidence and clarity in Cash Flowing Commercial and Multifamily Properties.
To give you Financial Security and Time Freedom.
Finish Line: You have successfully completed Stage One, The Plan when you complete your One Page 7 Figure Commercial Real Estate Investing Roadmap.
This will serve as your custom roadmap to compliment (in the short term) and eventually replace your single source of income.
Result: You have clarity on what your real estate investing will do for you. Most real estate investors I work with have never taken the time to get complete clarity on their goals. This process is key to establishing yourself as a credible commercial real estate investor.
- You have a clear vision for why you're investing.
- You will have the confidence to act decisively and stay focused on the right properties that will align with your vision.
Timeframe 1 week.
Why that's important: it is critical you understand the foundational rules of the game to properly prepare yourself to strategically interact with the player: Commercial Brokers, lenders, lawyers, and property managers.
Even if you plan to invest passively in CRE, understanding how investors structure their deals is important. You want to have clarity on the potential deal structures so you understand the risks upfront.
Most investors new to commercial real estate, find out quickly there's a big difference between CRE and residential.
When you understand the rules of the game, how to interact with the players and analyze properties- you'll be more in control of the deal. Actively managing risk vs. reacting to those only too eager to take advantage of uninformed, neophyte investors.
Finish Line: You are ready to make offers on your first Commercial Property, one that fits your Investment Plan.
Result: You have confidence on what to look for as you begin touring deals.

Question: "Do I get to work with Shane personally- or do I get someone who Shane has trained?"
Answer: You get me. At this time, I'm the only person who is consulting clients. Which is why, I limit the number to 12 clients for each 8 week program.
Question: "What if I don't have millions to invest- how do I even get started investing in commercial properties?"
Answer: You don't need millions of your own money. I have one client who purchased a $180,000 commercial property and, once he leases up the property, will be worth (conservatively) $950,000 - $1,100,000.
Another client got into his first apartment building with $60,000.
Do these deals come along everyday? Depends on your market- but yes, in almost any market, you can find opportunities and not all commercial deals are millions.
If you want to scale into larger properties (my specialty) I'll show you how to leverage "Other People's Money" to invest.
For a reference point- you should have a minimum of $100,000 to start.
Question: "What if I'm just getting started- and I don't have any experience investing. Is anyone really going to invest with me?"
Answer: Most of my clients have never invested in real estate before. You don't need to have 5 single family houses under your belt to be successful in commercial real estate.
This is what Phase 1 of the coaching is all about. I show you how to Create your Plan, then understand the Rules of the Game, build your DREAM TEAM to add credibility to your deals.
When you work with me- there's an opportunity to leverage my connections (provided you follow my advice and specific requirements). And, inside the community, there is great networking opportunities.
Question: "I'm too busy to do this work- I just want to invest in commercial real estate with someone I can trust. Can't I just give you or someone like you money to invest?"
Answer: The short answer is Yes. You can just invest with someone like me- however, my goal is to have you fully aware of what you're investing in.
Most sophisticated and credible syndicators want sophisticated investors in their deals.
They don't want Dumb Money.
Because they don't want the burden of having hand-holding throughout an investment. A knowledgeable investor is a great investor.
Question: "Shane, I don't even know where to start to find deals- what do I do first?"
Answer: Investing in Value Add Commercial Real Estate is a Process - not an Event.
The first place to start is to clarify what you want? What do you want your investments to provide for you? No two investors are the same. Markets are different and timing is different.
Having a clear Plan is the first step.
Next, is going through the 12 week Playbook to investing in Commercial Real Estate Framework I use to find, finance and fix the properties. When you go through the Club Syndication Training, I walk you through that process and show you how to get started- step 1,2,3 etc.
