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.

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

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.

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.
