Learn my five step process for passively investing in real estate

Anything you do for the first time can be scary! That goes for investing in real estate also. Syndication can be an intimidating word. It basically just means that a group of people come together to invest in a larger asset than one could invest in by themselves. Here you will find my five step process to passively investing in real estate. My hope for you is that this process will make investing in real estate much easier and kickstart your journey to wealth creation.

About This Show.

I believe that many of you may relate to my story!

I've been very successful in several careers and was taught to always save a percentage of my income, put it into the stock market and it would grow exponentially over time. It did grow over time but nowhere near what I would have expected. In the back half of 2017, I went searching for another way and found a path to invest in real estate.

It's been quoted over and over, that 90% of millionaires obtain their wealth through real estate.

I just turned 50 in early May 2020. I wish I had learned this at an earlier age but I'm very thankful that I know now. Wealth creation through real estate provided me with a new passion to get the word out and let others know that they have an alternative to investing in the stock market.

If I can inspire and educate just one person to take action that results in life changing wealth creation then the work to launch and grow this podcast is well worth the effort.

I hope that you will join me on this journey as we learn from other successful real estate investors that have gone before us!

What Investors Are Saying

I look for good sponsors


As a passive, I look for good sponsors; I look for a person that is knowledgeable, 'feels' trustworthy, and has financial and managerial acumen. He had partnered with another excellent fellow, the deal looked good, Darin sounded excited. I jumped and I have been satisfied with the results. I actually use Darin as an example of a good neophyte sponsor when I describe MF RE and what I look for.

Charles LeMaire Real Estate Investor

Work ethic, attention to detail and asset management skills


Darin and I joined forces to partner as co-sponsors for the Hampton Hollow acquisition back in 2018. His work ethic, attention to detail, asset management skills, and people skills have had a huge impact on the success of this deal, which has performed above expectations. Whether it's syndicating real estate deals, hosting a podcast, or being a dedicated family man...I know Darin is going to succeed in everything he puts his mind to.

Raj Gupta Co-Founder and Managing Partner, Impact Prosperity Partners, Naperville, IL

Able to answer all my questions


I have owned residential rent properties for over 10 years. During that time period I was always looking for real estate opportunities to help me diversify my investment portfolio. When Darin approached me with a multi-family investment opportunity, I quickly invested because it was exactly what I was looking for. Darin was well prepared with the information and was able to answer all my questions as we worked together. He was extremely helpful in making not only the investment details make sense but also in the administrative process. Since my initial investment was made, I have been extremely pleased with the results as well as Darin’s consistent communication as to how the project is progressing and would recommend participation in the next opportunity to anyone.

Brian Grubbs Managing Director, SAMCO Capital Celina, TX

A Great Experience


Darin was an excellent guide when I wanted to make an investment in multifamily…..he showed his passion for the industry and was always willing to spend time with me to educate me as deep as I wanted on the process, opportunities, and risks…..he was a wonderful guide. And, since I have made the initial investment, he has been meticulous and communicative about the property and process, and been a very good steward of my capital. A great experience!

Michael Blair Area Vice President Prosper, TX

Takes care of employees and tenants like family


As a fellow student of a multifamily real estate program, I came to know Darin. As a multifamily syndicator, Darin took care of employees and tenants like family during the Covid-19 crisis and updated investors personally on the situation. I appreciate all his hard work and wish him the best.

Kishor Bhatt Multifamily investor, Kinetic Technologies, Milipitas, CA

Highly recommended deal sponsor


I know Darin ad his business partner through a mutual multifamily investor network where they are known and highly recommended as deal sponsors. Bottom line, Darin and his business partner are top notch and I would not hesitate to invest with them again.

JB Colletta Principal, Family of Plenty

Investor’s money as if it were his very own


I met Darin through an educational investment group based in Dallas, TX. I can honestly say working with, and investing with Darin has been a breath of fresh air. His work ethic is genuine, honest, diligent and effective. I can rest easy knowing he cares about each and every investor’s money as if it were his very own. I would not hesitate to invest over and over again with Darin at the helm!

Jane Paull-Bridgeman CEO of De Novo Tempus Enterprise Inc, Frisco, TX

Patient and competent leadership.


I have known Darin for over 10 years personally and 3 years professionally. Darin has incredible insight into both financial and professional matters that makes everyone immediately feel at home and in good hands. Darin's moral compass and ethical values shines through in every relationship. I am fortunate enough to be both his friend and investment partner, learning and journeying through good and bad financial environments with his patient and competent leadership.

Todd Stout Product Developer Manager, NAM SKF USA, Inc. Longview, TX

Creative ideas to help our apartments do very well


I got to know Darin personally before we invested with him. He's an upstanding person, provides transparent communication on investments and plans ahead. Real leaders shine during difficult times and that was Darin during COVID-19. He personally called his investors to discuss the strategy, increased his written communication and had creative ideas to help our apartments do very well in trying times.

Chad Bullock Global Sales Lead Converged Infrastructure, Cisco, Dallas TX

Integrity and vast business knowledge


We first met Darin in February of 2018 at an investment event. A few months later we were given an opportunity to join him as passive investors. Darin has proven to be a remarkable and capable leader. Cheryl and I appreciate Darin’s integrity and vast business knowledge and look forward to many more opportunities to partner with him in the future.

Business Background

I started as a CPA with PriceWaterhouse and PepsiCo. I transitioned into sales selling software applications for several technology companies. I then transitioned to institutional loan trading with ABN AMRO, an international bank based in the Netherlands, with main focus on trading large jumbo residential portfolios and multifamily portfolios bank to bank. I then founded TZK Capital in 2007 focused on trading clean credit performing loans to include residential, multifamily and commercial real estate loans bank to bank. I've traded in excess of $4 billion in loans.

Real Estate Background

I decided to get involved purchasing real estate in the fourth quarter of 2017. I first purchased a new construction duplex. I then searched for a way to go after larger deals. I was very familiar with the multifamily asset class but wanted to learn how to purchase larger deals.

I joined a multifamily mentorship group in the Dallas area. At the beginning of 2018, I started to invest passively into other sponsors multifamily deals as well as started to underwrite and go after my own lead sponsor deal. I closed my first lead sponsor deal at the end of 2018 which was a 76 unit townhome community.

In total I'm invested in over 4,000 multifamily units. Seven deals passively with other sponsors, one deal as the lead sponsor and one deal I partnered with two well established general partners for a small minority stake in the deal.
