The 8 Week curriculum combines modern real estate investing frameworks, market analysis, and a community of peers to help and support you on your financial goals.

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. 

Case Study: Dan
Dan was a successful Physician, worked long hours and earning good money 300,000+year income.
Earning good money was not the problem.  Have no time with his family and no plan to replace this income was the challenge he was facing.

He had money in the stock market but was never comfortable counting on it being there when he needed it.  He had already seen one crash that took out a good chunk of his money and wasn't interested in hoping it wouldn't happen again. 

So, he looked into real estate.  His first investment was an up-down duplex rental property. When it was fully rented, he would clear about $150/month.

When we met, he expressed his frustration - how am I going to replace $25k/month+ investing in the volatile stock market or owning these small 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".

Dan had a clear plan - replace his $300,000/year income without creating a second job.  He was a busy professional who was looking to leverage his high income into passive cash flow.

Here are the 3 Steps we took:

Step 1. Design a clear investing Plan - types of real estate. Location. Returns..

Step 2. Learn the game of Commercial Real Estate. He wanted to know a good deal from a poor one.

Step 3. Find and Finance a property that fit his goals.  .

My role was to help educated Dan on the market and how to leverage his affluence to get the right deal.

He didn't have to hustle around investing in rental properties paying 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 status could leverage their wealth and access properties few 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 properties.

Dan wanted to replace his income with a good cash flowing property that could help put his 3 girls through top universities.

3 Steps For Investing In a Commercial Real Estate
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.

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.
