Grab All You Want… Because the Vault Is Now
Wide Open To My Entire Commercial Real Estate Business Empire!
Attract The Money… Control The Property… Broker The Deal
Take full advantage of all my “Wall Street” Systems to become a major player in asset acquisition, arbitrage, deal making, and capital formation!
Right now, you can get privileged access to my time tested and proven strategies, templates, expert trainings, videos, audio recordings, Wall Street ‘player’ interviews, actual case studies, commercial deals, and business building blueprints…
And catapult yourself to the #1 commercial authority in your market.
These are the EXACT same systems we use here at our boutique real estate investment banking firm and our portfolio acquisition companies — The Commercial Investor, Dandrew Partners, and Dandrew Media — to raise millions in capital (over $50 million, in fact), to buy, sell, and control property, fund deals, and structure deals for hefty fees, points, and equity ownership.
So here’s my question to you:
When do you want to start to…
Easily raise the capital to do 7 and 8 figure deals?
Swoop in and take control of a distressed office building or a multifamily building?
Flip high dollar deals for massive profits… without ever using a dime of your own money?
The big investment houses on Wall Street do it all the time, day in and day out.
The Myth of Residential Versus Commercial Investing
Now, you may be thinking, “How the hell can I do deals or raise millions in investment capital like the big guns? I don’t stand a chance.” See, that’s what most ‘wannabe’ investors think…
That they don’t know enough about the world of commercial real estate finance and commercial investing in general to even make an attempt to do deals.
And it’s also the main reason most new investors default to investing in residential real estate.
They’ve been ‘told and sold’ that residential investing… single family homes… is easier than commercial investing. Less hassle. Less time and effort. Less paperwork. A quicker way to wealth.
I’ve got news for you:
IT’S A BIG FAT LIE.
See, I’ve done both. And to be honest with you, there are pros and cons with each. I do invest in some residential arenas, but far fewer than in commercial because when it comes right down to it, commercial smokes residential. For many reasons…
Residential is WAY more competitive.
There are way more investors fighting over the same inventory in each market. There’s no greater War Cry in the residential investing world than, “I can’t find any good deals.”
In commercial, it’s an ocean of opportunity. A wide open playing field.
Thinner deal margins.
What would you rather do… a flip on a single family home for $5,000 profit… or put together a commercial deal without ever having to buy, sell, or fund it… and collect $50,000 plus fees and a back-end piece of the action?
Residential investors are shackled at the ankles with federal rules and regulations.
RESPA, Dodd-Frank, Departments of Real Estate, Creditworthiness, Banking temperament. All of which kill more deals than get approved. One slip or false move and you’re under the microscope.
With commercial, there are NONE of these restrictions. More freedom, more latitude, more ways to deals.
It’s much easier to raise capital for commercial deals than for residential.
Why? This is where the ‘big boys’ play. Much bigger payoff, way less hassle.
Plus the sources of capital for commercial is an ocean compared to the residential pond (where “moms n’ pops” invest. They only have so much money to invest).
Residential is a much more hostile environment.
Banks don’t want to lend to residential investors. Banks require a full body cavity search… superior credit (which few Americans have today), tax returns, disclaimers, and personal liability for loans.
With commercial, you can get non-recourse loans… no personal liability. Less restrictions, greater deal structure opportunities.
Very few residential investors create wealth or get rich buying single family homes. It’s like trying to catch flies in a bird cage.
One commercial deal can set you up financially for years… even life.
The belief that residential investing is less hassle, less time invested, and less paperwork is WRONG!
Dead wrong. A flip on a single family home typically takes 6 months, from acquisition to rehabbing to marketing to selling. Plus your purchase funds AND your rehab funds are tied up for the full 6 months, limiting your ability to do lots of deals.
And here’s something else to add to the mix: flipping and wholesaling is currently under intense scrutiny by federal and state regulators and jurisdictions across the country. The future of each is uncertain.
Commercial is non-regulated, and therefore the ability to fund and close deals is much easier and more flexible. There’s no ‘babysitting’. The amount of effort and paperwork is about the same without the hassle and for a much greater payoff.
This whole ‘Residential Investing is Better and Easier than Commercial Investing’ is a misleading and toxic mantra that has seeped into the public consciousness for some time now.
And investors all over the country have drunk the residential real estate investing Kool-Aid.
Once they find out the truth, though… that residential investing can be a chronic headache and very difficult to scale… it’s either too late or they quit altogether.
But you know what? This is a good thing. Because it spells greater opportunity for YOU!
“The Investors Syndicate”
So here’s another question to you…
Knowing what you now know about both sides of the real estate investing coin, would you rather spend your time…
Doing deals in residential — a challenging federally regulated and constricting environment where you tie up your cash for months on end, thus limiting the number of deals you do with just a mediocre payoff…
Or in commercial — wisely building a viable high fee, high margin, high cashflow, high profit business while at the same time creating true long term wealth?
If you chose the latter, I’ve got something you’re going to love. Something that gives YOU a massive insiders’ advantage in your market.
While all the other investors are duking it out like caged UFC fighters in the residential investing niche, you’ll be whistling as you walk down Main Street, a clear commercial path before you…
Armed to the gills with the knowledge, training, tools, and the savvy wisdom of Wall Street… with no competition in sight.
That’s the beauty of The Investors Syndicate.
The Investors Syndicate is a treasure trove of commercial training and education that puts you light years ahead of your competition. In fact, it annihilates it. You’ll be doing deals, raising capital, and controlling properties in YOUR OWN BACKYARD!
You Can Now See What Others Don’t…
Here’s how simple this is… The next time you’re driving around town, take notice of all the houses. Subdivisions, neighborhoods, planned unit developments, bare land.
Take notice of all the commercial properties you pass on your way to work…
Office buildings, strip malls, anchored “Big Box” stores like Target, warehouses, industrial parks, apartment buildings, regional strip malls, mini storage units, mobile home and RV parks, abandoned buildings, condo complexes, offices, unfinished construction.
A solid percentage of the properties you see out your car window are ALWAYS in some stage of trouble or distress…
Owners are behind on payments…
The property is in foreclosure or bankruptcy…
It’s in REO at the bank…
Repairs are needed to get the building back to black
Sponsors are silently crying for bridge financing as their loans come due
Owners have no clue how to raise capital to complete the project
$1 Million is needed to close a deal
Banks hold the defaulted note and must get it off their books
Partners want to be taken out of the deal… IMMEDIATELY, IF NOT SOONER
Loans need to be paid off because they’re due or past due
The list of dire needs goes on. What you see before you is a Goldmine of Opportunity.
And the fact is, even when it’s staring them in the face, 99% of investors DON’T SEE IT. But now YOU CAN! The Investors Syndicate gives you the ‘night vision goggles’ to laser in on profit pumping properties and opportunity…
The trouble spots… the distressed real estate… the distressed financing. It’s waiting like a ripe tomato ready to be picked from the vine.
Sharing their time, sharing of information, showing me what worked and what didn’t, opening up to the mistakes they made and how they course corrected, and all the ‘street secrets’ that launched them to success.
(Later, after I left the firm and went on to raise my first fund, my first investors were the men and women who mentored and guided me at GS… the investors who watched me ‘grow up.’)
That one lesson in ‘giving’ affected me deeply. I never took my station at GS for granted. I knew I was fortunate to be working with the best. Every day was a blessing. So when I decided to leave the firm after several years to start my own real estate private equity fund and go into business for myself, the time I invested and the education I received paid huge dividends.
Within 18 months of striking out on my own, I raised $30 million for my private equity fund. The fund specialized in buying non-performing lines of credit from failing banks, specifically Bear Stearns. (Remember them?)
And to be honest, it wasn’t that hard. I simply followed the exact same steps my mentors used. I leveraged my…
Training and experience
That was 14 years ago. I’ve been in the trenches ever since… Negotiating deals, pitching Wall Street institutional funds, as well as those ‘mom & pop’ retail investors, buying and selling every type of commercial property, brokering deals, consulting, coaching, and masterminding.
There’s nothing like the art of the commercial deal.
ALL THE KNOWLEDGE AND EDUCATION AND INSIGHTS I PICKED UP OVER THE YEARS HAS BEEN 100% EXPERIENTIAL.
And now, I want YOU to have total access to the same training that I had.
The Ultimate Resource, Training,
