  • The world of self-directed retirement is in jeopardy.

    Recent headlines about “MEGA ROTHS” have created a buzz in the media, and that buzz has resulted in an increase in regulatory hurdles for everyday people who have self-directed their retirement accounts.

    Though the recent proposals to essentially ban the investment of private placements via SDIRA’s have been rejected, there are still several changes in the works that investors need to be knowledgeable about. In fact, it’s critical to understand how these discussions are evolving, as many of the regulations may take place as early as 2022.

    Today, we are joined by John Hyre, an experienced tax attorney who specializes in the taxation of real estate and SDIRA’s/401k’s. He is exceptionally knowledgeable on the matter and painstakingly reviews recent court cases to stay on the cutting edge of these regulations.

    In this episode, we discuss…

    What is the future of “backdoor” contributions that circumvent income limits on SDIRAs? What are some examples of enforcement of these self-dealing rules, and what can YOU learn from them? Why our guest is a huge proponent of the Solo K structure, and how you can contribute over $50,000 if you meet certain criteria

    This is a VERY important episode for any passive investor who has self-directed their account, or an owner operator that wants to raise future funds from SDIRA investors.

  • Our guest for today immigrated with his parents to the US when he was five years old.

    He didn’t speak English and he came from a financially disadvantaged background.

    To be honest, a lot of the deck was stacked against him…

    …but he didn’t let that impact his desire (or ability) to accomplish amazing things.

    Today, we are joined by Daniel Kwak, who is the Founder of Miotti Partners Capital, a managed private equity real estate and development fund. He has traveled the US speaking at conferences to the next generation of real estate entrepreneurs. Daniel also produces The Kwak Brothers YouTube channel, which has over 200,000 subscribers.

    In this episode today, we are going to discuss…

    How Daniel when from -$187.65 in his bank account at the age of 20, to having an 8-figure portfolio by 27 Daniel’s views on how hard work and economics tie in to each other, and why he feels blessed to be alive in the US during this incredible time human history Why Daniel’s most common response to people who don’t think they're ready to raise capital is simply… “Good…You probably shouldn’t!”

    Daniel is not only an all-star entrepreneur, he is also a deep-thinker and action-taker. I think many of you will thoroughly enjoy his story

  • One of the many benefits of the online education revolution that is taking place right now, is that someone can go into the space of real estate investing with very little background, and become a confident passive investor, with just a few months of dedication.

    This simply wasn’t possible just a few short years ago.

    As the interest in passive investing continues to grow, more and more service providers are popping up to help facilitate these passive investors’ growth curve and enhance their knowledge and expertise, as they work to review new investment opportunities. This interview is just one of many examples of this.

    Today, we are joined by Dr. Samuel Giordano, who is a full-time physician and founder of Passive Advantage, a software designed for passive investors.

    How our guest went from struggling to find access to quality education on the topic of passive investing, to being a very confident investor in just a few years (and some of the resources he used along the way!) Why our guest feels a bit bearish on a few sectors of the real estate sector, and what asset classes he is most bullish on from a passive investors’ standpoint How our guest turned a simple Excel document into a robust software which helps passive investors vet opportunities

    Interested in being able to vet deals more quickly?

  • As the real estate market evolves, more and more operators and investors are looking for new strategies to diversify their portfolios.

    One of the best ways I’ve found to leverage the track record, relationships, geographic location, and deal flow of someone else’s firm is through the concept of the “fund of funds” model - sometimes referred to as the “SPV” (Special Purpose Vehicle) model.

    We are joined by Ariel Diaz, fellow RaiseMaster and founder of Trajan Real Estate. Ariel is here to discuss a recent paradigm shift he had on this topic, which allowed him to significantly increase his deal flow by utilizing this structure.

    Today, we are going to discuss…

    Why our guest felt like he was “stuck” in a low cap rate market, and how the fund of funds model helped solve that problem How he was able to leverage his fund of fund’s investment amount to get favorable terms for his entity How to overcome challenges around your investors potentially circumventing you as a fund of funds manager How the fund of funds structure allows you to get your foot in the door with just about any operator (regardless of how experienced they are)

    This episode is extremely relevant for both savvy passive investors, as well as well-established operators. The power of this vehicle is only just beginning to be understood in the market today.

    You’ll see why during this interview!

  • “Oh…I’m actually not interested…”

    “I don’t have any money to invest…”

    “I’m actually here to pitch YOU on a deal!”

    Heard these things before?

    If you’re tired of having calls with unqualified and interested investors, this podcast will help you identify the mistakes you’re making early on that are likely costing you when it’s time to close the deal.

    Today, we are joined by Bronson Hill, who is the Managing Partner at Bronson Equity, where he controls over $120MM of commercial real estate. He has raised over $20MM from investors, most of which he raised by relationships that he started by completing over 1,200 one-on-one investor phone calls.

    He’s here today to discuss some of the golden nuggets he learned during those calls.

    In this episode today, we are going to discuss…

    What specific questions should you be asking investors before diving into the details of the opportunity? What exact phases has Bronson used to develop a deep relationship with potential investors, without requiring more than a 20-minute phone call? Bronson also reveals two simple strategies that he implemented that raised his average investment amount from $75,000 to $122,000 (a 62% increase!)

    This is a must-listen for capital raisers, operators, and real estate entrepreneurs.

  • Don’t you wish you could be a fly on the wall as a centimillionaire (someone with $100MM+ net worth) creates their investment directive for 2022?

    If so, you’re in luck…

    Today, we are joined by Richard Wilson, the founder of FamilyOffices.com, a private investor club that caters to investors with a significant net worth. For context, Richard recently closed a deal in which the investor agreed to invest $300MM of equity.

    If you’re interested in getting a deep look into how the 9-figure crew is planning on participating in the investment space in the upcoming year, this is an excellent episode for you.

    In this episode, we discuss…

    What is the deal with the tokenization of real estate and how will this impact the world of commercial real estate? We also discuss Richard’s strategy for networking and discuss some of the ways he has been able to rub shoulders with CEO’s of publicly traded companies, billionaires, and well-known investors Should you “stay in your lane”, or, can you dominate multiple sectors?

    In the interview, Richard also discusses his upcoming event The Family Office Super Summit, which is taking place in Ft. Lauderdale on Monday, December 13th. Several centimillionaires and at least one billionaire will be speaking at the event, so I’m sure the networking opportunities will be quite unique.

    I’m going to be there, and I’d be quite excited to meet any of you at the summit.

  • In this Monday Minutes, I reveal my seven-stage process for conducting due diligence from the passive approach to investing. This is NOT your typical "high-level" review. This is the process that I've used to invest in over 35 syndications over the last decade. Even if you ask 2-3 questions about each topic, you'll be ahead of many of the passive investors out there.

    Why the US is a uniquely favorable place for investors and entrepreneurs, but why the path we are on might lead us to ruin.

  • In this Monday Minutes, I outline one of the MOST important risks that passive investors never think about when comparing active investments to passive investments.

    From my perspective, this is one of the most compelling reasons to be a passive investor.

    ❌ It’s not diversification…

    ❌ It’s not the lack of time required to be a passive investor…

    ❌ It’s not the ability to participate in all stages of the cycle….

  • As surprising as it might seem…

    The world of real estate crowdfunding wasn’t truly invented until 2012/2013.

    Sure…

    “Pooled investments” (syndications) have been around in the US for quite some time, but the ability to combine the online space with the ability to raise capital wasn’t fully “unleashed” until the JOBS Act was ratified.

    This Act certainly had a significant impact on the world of commercial real estate, but what are the implications of these changes, and how can we benefit from them?

    What does this impact look like as this sector matures, and more and more people start participating in this incredible investment vehicle?

    Will the recent popularization of 506(c), Reg A+ and Reg CF create a new stage in the story of crowdfunding real estate?

    Today, we are joined by Adam Gower who is the author of Real Estate Crowdfunding: Unleashed. After conducting an incredible amount of research on the matter, Adam is here to provide some important updates that I am sure many listeners will be eager to learn, and incorporate into their thinking.

    In this episode, we are going to discuss…

    How are institutions reacting to the influx of accredited investors, and how is this reality shifting the investment space as a whole? In which geographic locations are accredited investors most eager to invest, and does the data suggest that they should be investing there? Are investors getting more accustomed to 506(c) offerings, or will 506(b)s continue to dominate the market?

    From my perspective, those who are well-positioned in this space stand to create massive profits over the next few years, as the sector explodes with interest.

    I intend on being one of those benefactors.

    Do you?

    If so, tune in to hear what the data suggests about the future of crowdfunding.

  • In this Monday Minutes, I discuss two lessons I learned from the CEO of Realty Mogul, one of the largest real estate crowdfunding portals in the world.

    The first lesson is about YOU…Your journey. Your ability to expedite your growth curve, and refusing to settle for “just ok.”

    The second lesson is all about your TEAM.

    How can you attract top-tier talent?

    How can you retain them?

    I’ll discuss two occasions where I learned a lot from someone who has done an incredible job of both at the highest of levels.

  • Like many of you, I’m extremely bullish on the world of private real estate deals.

    As people continue to have success investing in the space, it will continue to grow and grow. If this continues, it might be highly favorable for us as early investors. (Yes, we are still VERY early!)

    If this happens as I think it might, it’ll likely mean more buyers and sellers in the space (more liquidity), lower exit cap rates, and generally, a more precise marketplace. Of course, it might get a little competitive as well!

    However, one thing that can slow that growth is for passive investors to have poor investment experiences.

    Sure…

    Some deals simply have challenges. That’s the nature of investing in real property which is occupied by real tenants.

    But some of the challenges in the space are related to the operators themselves.

    So, how can we limit the likelihood of investing in deals with poor operators?

    Today, we are joined by Byran Ellis, who is an experienced real estate operator and who has raised tens of millions of dollars of private equity from investors. Over his decades in the industry, he has developed systems and processes to conduct accurate and efficient due diligence for passive investors.

    In this episode, we are going to discuss…

    Several tips and tricks for how passive investors can “trust but verify” without breaking the bank A wild horror story that could have easily been avoided! How real estate sponsors can create a principle-based business, so that you are never concerned that you are going to be “found out” by your investors

    If you are a passive investor who’s looking to increase your level of sophistication, this is an excellent opportunity to learn from one of the best!
