1. Coaching makes me a better investor. The people I work with ask great questions. I keep my finger on the pulse across Can and the US. I see deals and enter markets I might not have, had I not been coaching.
2. Coaching allows me to build new and valuable relationships with investors. In some cases, I have gone into deals with clients (rarely) but when you're invited into an 8 figure deals, 1/year, you don't need many.
For this reason I'm very careful on who I let into the program. It's no for Get Rich Quick. This is about building long term wealth through tangible cash flowing assets.
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 of monthly coaching clients I accept.
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.
