Jose Jafferji - Broker, Multifamily Investor, GTA ON

Design a simple real estate investing plan to replace your earned income. 

Leveraging the investment frameworks the wealthy use to invest.  Including how to evaluate cash flowing properties in minutes, what to look for when touring properties, checklists you can rely on so you don't miss something important. 

Strategies on how to negotiate with sellers, brokers and service providers.  If you're an active investors, I give you the same Pitch Decks that I have used to raise multiple 8 Figures. 

Let's walk through Dan's First Property...
Dan was a successful Physician, working hard and earning 300,000+year income.
 
He was trading time for money and looking for a place to invest where he had more control.

He was nervous that most of his savings where in the stock market. 

So, he purchased his first rental property (an up-down duplex). When it was fully rented, he cleared about $150/month. (So long as it was full and the tenants were paying on time).

When we met, he expressed his frustration - how was he going to replace $20k/month+ investing in either the volatile stock market or owning rental properties?  

What was Dan looking for? (paraphrasing):

"Shane, I want a safe place to invest my money so one day I no longer have to go into the office. I want to stop trading time for money. I'm tired of relying on my practice to put food on the table".

With a clear target (replace his $300,000/year income) and understanding he was a busy professional, we made a short list of the types of properties that made the most sense

Step 1. The Plan - a clear investing blueprint.

Step 2. Learn the game of Commercial Real Estate.

Step 3. Take action and find the right property for his unique situation.

I first educated Dan on the market and helped him understand his unique affluence afforded him a unique opportunity.

He didn't have to hustle around investing in rental properties paying him a few hundred dollars a month. At that rate, he'd need 100 houses to replace his income.

I showed him that people of his financial affluence and status could leverage their wealth and access properties very few in the world could.

How to take advantage of his high income instead of competing with the masses on rental houses.

For Dan, Stability and Predictability were most important.

He didn't have the time or expertise to do a heavy value add commercial property.

He was too busy and didn't want a 2nd job to oversee single family homes earning him 1.5% return on his money.

Dan wanted to replace his income and put his girls through an elite college.

 

3 Steps For Investing In Your First Commercial Property
1. The Plan
Find 1 Commercial Property that could replace 6 figures/year in earned income.
 
Focus- Newer Property, great location, minimal effort.
  • Less than 2 hours/week
  • Large Enough to pay multiple 5 figures/month
  • Cash Flow from Day 1 
Dan was busy and didn't want to do a value add deal.  He wanted a property that he could purchase, and one day pass on to his girls.
* Some numbers are rounded and modified for privacy and client confidentially 
2. The Deal

The Property: 6,500 Sq.ft Commercial Property, built in past 3 years.  

Shadow Anchored.

  • Purchase Price ~ $4.8M
  • Monthly Cash Flow (before debt) ~ $25,000/month
  • Going in Cap Rate ~ 6.25%
  • Cash Flow After Debt: $6,500/month 
  • Principle Pay Down: $7,500/month (equity growth)
*This assumes no appreciation and just rental steps/bumps. A rental bump are predetermined rental increases already agreed to in the leases.
3. Strategy: Cash Flow

Legacy Asset: Core property in a sought after location.

If Dan does nothing, with existing 'rental bumps' - leases have built in lease rates that increase over time:

  • Cash Flow: $78,000/year and  Increases in year 3 (~5%) 
  • Mortgage Pay down: $85,000/year
  • When Mortgage is Paid Off: $300,000/year in free cash flow (assuming no market appreciation) 
* In year 1, not enough to retire, but double digit returns on his money.  As the mortgage is paid down and tenant leases increase, his returns increase.  
Dan's email to me - some of the private information has been blurred out for privacy
Rule # 1. Invest In Large Enough Cash Flowing Properties
Four months after working with Dan and his wife, I helped him find and close on a his first commercial property delivering exceptional 11%/year returns.
 

This 1 property now pays him $24,400/month.

Five tenants paying him $24,400/month plus all his bills; property taxes, insurance and covers a professional property manager.

When the mortgage is paid off in 25 years: this One commercial property will pay him more than $305,000/year in passive income requiring about 2 hours of work/month.

*This assumes no appreciation and just rental steps/bumps. A rental bump are predetermined rental increases already agreed to in the leases.

One investment goes a long way to getting Dan to retirement and paying his girl's college tuition.

Dan's on his way to doing this again with his second commercial property as of this writing.

This was the result of following the process and framework of finding the right commercial property in the right location at the right time.

 

Was It Easy or Fast?
 
I guess it depends on your perspective. 
 
It took Dan about 12 years in School, full time and more than $200,000 in tuition to becoming a Physician.
 
Contrast that to 4 months of looking at properties a few nights a month and on weekends.  Now, he owns a property that will replace his job.
 

Most people entering the game of CRE (Commercial Real Estate) don't stick with it.  

In most cases they are not given proper expectations.

That it actually does take a bit of time.  But, you don't need 10 commercial properties to replace a 6 figure income.

Unlike single family rentals (SFRs), where they are easily found online, most commercial properties are not listed online.

They are controlled by a few Brokers in any given market. 

And, because brokers are only paid when the sell a property- they typically only work with people who have a track record and know the rules of the Game.

When I worked with new CRE investors, it would typically take me 8 weeks to get them up to speed on the process of investing.

After 8 Weeks they could speak the language - to be taken seriously.

They could analyze deals- so they wouldn't be taken advantage of.

They had a team around them to help them invest - because it would take years to try and master all aspects of CRE.  Better to find the right "WHO" to help you.

In late 2021, I recorded 8 weeks of training 8 real estate investors on how to invest in CRE.   5 of 8 had found properties, 3 made offers in 8 weeks.

This is not typically, but they were active and hungry to invest. 

Now, you can access the same training at your own pace by joining The Club Syndicate.

COMMUNITY

Investing in commercial real estate (CRE) is not easy, especially if you're trying to do this on your own. 

The Club Syndicate is kept small intentionally - so that you can get to know other investors.

When I trained with Navy Seal Commander, Mark Divine (in his Unbeatable Mind and then 20x crucible) there was 1 common theme: alone you fail, together we 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.

SUPPORT

This is Optional

If you would like additional support beyond the DIY training, you can join the 6 Month Coaching.

This is where you can bring deals you're working on to the live calls for review. 

One of the most valuable aspects of the Coaching 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 appreciate the most.

Tell you the good, bad and ugly.  When your investing your hard earned money, you want the truth.  

The Club Syndicate Training Program™
What You Get
  • Proven step-by-step training on how to find the right properties in the right location at the right time in the market.

  • Not for beginners: You must meet the 5 criteria on this page.

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 generate income without trading time for money.

How to GetThe Skills To Invest in CRE

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

 

The Training Program is designed specifically for Canadians who are either:

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.

or,

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 program is designed to give you the skills to invest with confidence and clarity in Cash Flowing Commercial and Multifamily Properties. 

To give you Financial Security and Time Freedom. 

The Program Covers The 5 Phases of CRE Investing
Phase 1: The PLAN: Discovery/Assessment 
What will you have when you're done?

On completion of Stage One you will have a clearly developed a custom Commercial Real Estate Investing Plan.
 
This plan will serve as your Investing Roadmap. Aligning your vision to the right type of properties, in the right locations.
  • Design your Plan based on where you're at and where you would like to be in the time you set out (Clarity)
  • Clarity on your Risk Profile - to dictate proper return expectations.
  • Non-Negotiables to Investing- clear values that allow you to avoid the Biggest and most common Investing Mistakes in commercial real estate
  • Your 1 Page Commercial Real Estate Roadmap.  Everything on 1 page - so you have a clear focus on the properties in a specific location with returns that meet your goals.

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.

Phase 2: PROPERTY Selection 
What will you have when you're done?

In Stage Two we take The Plan you created and apply it to finding the right deals.

You will understand what I call "The Game of Commercial Real Estate".

On completion of Phase Two you will have:
  • SafeLine to Investing: You'll be a strategic investor with confidence in:
  • Understand Market Timing - you will know how to evaluate where your specific market is based on market trends. CRE moves in cycles and it's important to understand where you are so you apply the right strategy to your market.
  • You will know how to Find and Underwrite deals. Using my worksheets and proprietary spreadsheets to complete financial analysis on commercial properties (in 5 minutes)- including my personal excel files to underwrite deals.
  • My 10 Step Checklist to investing in commercial properties.
  • Access to my Worksheets to find the right properties in the right locations (and which properties to stay away from)
  • Scripts and training on how to find Off Market Deals.
  • My 30 Page Due Diligence checklist compiled from working with some of the biggest commercial developers and brokers in the US and Canada.
  • My 2 Page Negotiation Checklist - so you can speak the language of Commercial real estate.  There is an opportunity for role plays.
  • You will have a Playbook for adding value and finding the team to help you execute.
  • Clear on your Exit Strategy. I train you to figure out upfront, who your buyer is when you decide to sell. This is critical- because you want to fix and position the property so it's suited for the right buyer.

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. 

Timeframe 3 weeks.

  • Sample Capital Raising Legal agreements- **You still require a lawyer and accountant- but you'll have access to the same capital raising agreements to use as templates. I've paid as much as 15k for a LP/GP agreement. So, you can streamline the process.

  • What to send the lenders and how to ensure you're getting the best debt on terms that make sense to you
  • How to work with a Commercial Mortgage Broker - one who has your best interest in mind.

Why that's important: Investing in Commercial Real Estate and Raising Money comes down to confidence.

What you'll quickly discover is that there are too many 'hats' to wear investing in commercial real estate. It's not your job to be an expert at all of them.

It is your job to manage and oversee the team you put in place. This is how the most successful investors buy properties.

They find the right people to help them and then drive the deal forward.

Timeframe 1 week 

Phase 5: MINDSET & SUPPORT - OPTIONAL & EXTRA
Successful commercial real estate investors generally have a strong peer network.  They have someone they can bounce ideas off.
 
If you would like to join the Coaching Program (which also includes the DIY Training) where we meet 2x month, for 90 Minutes, this option exists.   
 
To get around other like minded individuals who are on a similar path to generating passive income.
 
Commercial Real Estate is about building relationships.  Once you have skills and information - sometimes we are just 1 person away from finding the right deal or capital.  
 
This is why I offer the additional coaching and Mastermind - to bring together a serious group of investors.

If you're an Active Investor- you're learning and helping others.  As market cycles change- you want to know what is going on. 
 
I personally invest five figures a year subscribing to and investing in other coaching programs to star on top of the trends in commercial real estate (which I share with my clients).  

If you're a Passive Investor - you're bringing capital to the table and an outside perspective.

Markets change, which means what worked 12 months ago may be dated.

If you are a right fit and there is mutual agreement to join the Community of other Commercial Real Estate Investors, you can expect...
  • Provide you the same tools I use to Manage and oversee my properties with a few hours a month.
  • Access to my network of vetted professionals in the world of commercial real estate.
  • The Systems and Infrastructure I have in place to manage multiple 7 and 8 figure properties
  • Current Strategies to add value, cut expenses and reposition properties to Optimize for maximum value.  Markets change, so you need to flexible in your approach to investing.
  • How to Plan your Exit (now) - so when it comes to selling you have done what you needed to attract the ideal buyer.
  • Meet 2 times a Month on Thursdays for 90 Minutes to review deals, Pitch Decks and help each other grow our portfolios.
  • From Time-to-Time I bring in expert speakers.  Lawyers, Accountants, Lenders, Developers and other experts in the world of CRE that I trust.  Often , it would near impossible to get these people to share what they do, but because I have known them for years, they share.
  • Past recordings of more than 70 hours of coaching and group calls.

Finish Line: 

The Club Syndicate Program gives you the tools, skills and community to invest with confidence.

Timeframe ongoing... The Coaching Program is 6 Months

The Commercial Real Estate Investing Roadmap
But first, you must qualify...
If I'm going to accept your money, I need to ensure you're going to get your desired result.  So, to be sure you're a good fit for the program:
 
Below are the 5 criteria you must meet to become a member of The Club Syndication Program
  • You must have a minimum of $100,000 to invest (most clients have a minimum of $250,000).  If you plan to be a Passive Investor, expect to meet the "Accredited Investor Threshold (defined by the SEC).  Commercial Real Estate, the way I teach it requires capital.  
  • You're DrivenYou take action and are self motivated (if you're earning the kind of income required above, this likely the case).
  • You Take Responsibility for your Investment and Actions.  No one is going to care about your money more than you.  This coaching and training is about empowering you to take back control over your investments.
  • You Play the Long Game - this is NOT about making money overnight.  Investing in Commercial Real Estate is Illiquid, meaning, your capital may be tied up for several years.
  • No Victims - this group is about helping others and contributing.  I'm very careful to only allow in positive people who are here to support others.
There are many programs that will accept anyone in and take their money.  I'm not interested in that.  

90% of my day is spent finding deals, raising money and executing on current projects.  As of this writing, I have 3 developments, 2 cash flowing properties and two - 8 figure deals I'm raising money for.  I share this with you to let you know, I'm in the game and doing this every day.
 
I enjoy helping new CRE investors and seeing them get their first property.  Because each group is small (max 12),  we are are a tight knit group with a common goal.  

I can say, each member who has come through The Club Syndicate Program, I would have over to my house, meet my kids and have a beer with. 
 
Life is too short to work with people who take energy.

I have taken many 4-8 week courses that teach 1 aspect of commercial real estate and have paid $1,500- $10,000.

To find out if there is availabilty and to see if you will be accepted in the coaching program, please schedule a 20 Minute Call with Shane.  The Coaching is 6 Months and investment Ranges from $5,800 - $9,800.

Commercial Real Estate Consulting Q&A
Question: "Shane, why are you doing this? Why not just focus on doing your own commercial deals?"
 
Answer: There are 2 main reasons (other than helping students).
 
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.
 

Bonus: I do get paid - this isn't volunteer work!

 

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 clients in the coaching program.

During the Coaching Program, you will have email support in addition to the live coaching calls.

 

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 get Coached by 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.

Why?

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 8 week Program 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.

 

Question: When is the next 8 Week Program Starting and is there room?

Answer: To join, there is an order form.

Proper Expectations:
The first commercial property is the hardest. It can take time. Commercial real estate isn't (for the most part) found online on the MLS.
 
Deals take longer and are harder to find. A good deal is far easier to raise money for than a fair deal.
 
Which is why it's important to spend the time to understand what investors are looking to invest in.
 
It's not uncommon for me to look for 3- 6 months to find the right property. It does happen faster, but patience is key and a sense of urgency once we find the right property.
 
Returns- I sometimes hear new investors ask about 20%+ annualized cash on cash returns. If we work together I'll tell you upfront, these are not realistic expectations. If you're able to do this in residential or other assets- I would encourage you to keep doing what you're doing.
 
Can you hit 20% cash on cash returns?
 
Yes, in some cases it is possible. But, for most investors you're looking for a safe place to grow and protect your money.  
 
20% returns are generally in different stages of the market and require significant skills (development or distressed).
 
I would suggest, if you're looking in most major markets, once a property is stabilized, many investors I work with are happy with 6%-10%* cash on cash returns plus principal paydown (another 5%/year*).
 
*These are not a hard and fast rules or income claims.  I am not making any return on investment claims or gurantees on your investments.
This Program is Designed to give you the Skills and Confidence to Help You Raise Money and Purchase your First Commercial Property.
If it were easy, there would be more competition. The goal here is to give you actionable stuff that works in the real world.
 
I personally invest in 2-4 commercial properties a year.
 
Market conditions are constantly changing. Today, with COVID 19- people are afraid and uncertain. This generally means most investors are in a wait and see mindset.
 
There is no perfect time.  We are all busy.  Waiting for the market to go to a buyers market, means you'll likely miss it. 
 
In reality- you want to be in the market all the time.  It's the only way to know when the market is turning.
