My goal is to make you a better investor and help rehabbers with finding partners, crew, investors. 

My background is in technology and software. I have an undergraduate degree in Computer and Information Science and has managed several hundred projects for many Fortune 500 companies. I bought my first single family house in at the age of 24. Since then, I have successfully invested in real estate as a passive income generating strategy. Not all real estate ventures were successful and I have learnt from my mistakes and I share my mistakes more abundantly with my friends than my successes. I do not want others to make the same mistakes.  

My "Side Hustle"

Why "Passive" income? I still work full time in technology and needed to find a way to invest in real estate such that it did not take too much time of my time and it could be done part time at leisure. I have been able to do that successfully and I now coach and help others on accomplishing the same.

WHY YOUR RENTAL PROPERTY IS LEAVING MONEY ON THE TABLE AND HOW TO OUTPERFORM THE MARKET: DANA DUNFORD, Co-Founder Hemlane.com

 

Moguls,

 

We are packing in some serious content into our next event with some great presenters and serious topics.

 

Property Management – Solutions using current technology

 

All real estate investors at some point have to deal with property management, whether they self manage or whether they hire property managers. I am thrilled to have Dana Dunford, Co-Founder of Hemlane.com. A San Francisco based property management startup with an incredible insight into both technology and real estate.

Property management is a jack-of-all trades position. You need to be a good salesperson (tenant acquisition), lawyer (lease contracts), accountant (finances), operations guru (day-to-day operations), and maintenance coordinator (repair requests). Most people can’t do all of these things well - they are only good at one. Whether you have one or 100 rentals, Dana will talk about how to strategically set yourself up for success with your cash flow.

Dana will provide key insights into what you never knew about the operations, how to outperform other real estate investors, and why you should think about property management as a unique competitive advantage in your strategy.

Raymond Rodriguez (District Manager with First Republic) and Miguel Andrada: Strategies to deal with Student Loan Debt.

Student loan debt burden has been in the news a lot lately. Raymond and Miguel are going to talk about strategies to deal with Student Loan debt.

As always, we will have great networking and deal making. This is where members find capital, deals, partners, education and so much more.

When: August 23rd at 6:30PM to 9:00 PM.

Where: NY Life, 425 Market St, 9th Floor, SF

Free dinner will be provided for the folks that RSVP here: https://www.meetup.com/Bay-Area-Multifamily-Moguls/

MartinSaenzHeadShot.jpg

As a mortgage note investor you do not have to worry about bad tenants, high maintenance costs or vacancy issues associated with owning property.  Martin Saenz is an expert in buying distressed mortgage notes and helping borrowers get back on their feet with payments they can afford while creating 30 year streams of cashflow for himself.  If this sounds intriguing, then I suggest that you RSVP for one of these events in advance and block out your calendar because Mr. Saenz will blow you away with the simplicity and candor of how to acquire and own distressed notes and turn them into performing notes.

Here is a free report that Martin has put together: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1uFqkb6RYLBs_gvbJqyc-Df2CRtntCz-m

Make Money in Cannabis Real Estate: Understanding Risk and Opportunity

A presentation by BaseCanna

Moguls,

I am excited to bring this really interesting presentation to our members being hosted by some of our Meetup members. The California cannabis industry is expected to grow from less than a billion dollars in 2016 to more than $5 billion in 2019. This rapidly expanding industry has significant real estate needs, but not a lot of cannabis friendly landlords. Come learn about real estate demand, perceived and actual risks, and potential returns. We’ll also explore zoning restrictions, bank financing, federal prohibition, and the legal landscape. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn about a rapidly expanding market with significant real estate needs: early participation holds the promise of higher returns. We’ll see you at the seminar.

A note about the presenter: BaseCanna develops and manages turn-key cannabis campuses for new and experienced cannabis operators. Learn more about us at www.basecanna.com

My long time friends and our Meetup members - Jack Boyajian (Managing Director), Leslie Plettner (Director) and Cabral Bonner (Director) will be educating us on what is happening with Cannabis and Real Estate.

Investing Out of State (after all California is the best market ever)?

Monday, March 26th

6:30PM to 8:45 PM

Address: NY Life, 425 Market St, 9th Floor, San Francisco, CA

Tuesday, March 27th

6:30 PM to 8:45PM

Address: 2121 S. El Camino Real, Suite 1200, San Mateo, CA

 

Investing Out of State (after all California is the best market ever)? Good, Bad and the Ugly!

Dear Moguls!!

This will be our first mastermind group that will focus on benefits and disadvantages of investing in properties out of state.

Back of the envelope calculations

Let’s say you had $1M sitting in your checking account right this minute. You could buy two rentals for cash ($500K each) in Oakland and collect about $5K gross in rent. Subtract 40% for expenses so you net about $3000 monthly.

Take the same amount of money and you can buy 20 similar properties (similar neighborhoods for about $50K each) and they rent for $650/mo. That comes to about $7,800 per month (after 40% in expenses) or a difference of about $4,800 PER MONTH. Folks, that is not chump change!!!

Of course I am highlighting the positives and there are also many down sides to investing out of state. The goal of our mastermind group will be to excel at owning and operating properties remotely. We will work in a collaborative, supportive environment to learn about how to evaluate and operate real estate remotely for the long haul.

As savvy investors, are we willing to learn and explore how we can increase our yield while reducing our risks? If you are curious about how this is possible then set aside some time to explore the possibilities.

More importantly if you believe in Financially Independent & Retiring Early (“FIRE”) lifestyle, then this event and this mastermind group is just what the doctor ordered.

Agenda

+ Pro’s and Con’s of investing out of state

+ Where to invest out of state

+ Financing

+ Property Management

+ Rehabbing remotely

Cost: Free if you RSVP, $10 at the door.

 

Opportunity Knocks:

Single Family Homes – if you are looking for solid cash flowing properties using the Turnkey or BRRRR (Buy, Rehab, Rent, Refinance, Repeat) strategy, then please reach out to me.

Assisted Living facilities – If are interested in 30+ room assisted living facilities, then please reach out to me.

Happy Investing!

Dear Moguls,

We live, work and invest in Silicon Valley. I am thrilled to announce that we are going to have a mini “RealTech” event for our members. There are so many exciting companies that develop solutions for real estate investors, so it’s time that you met with some of the up and coming companies and hear directly from their founders, CEOs.

AaronMcDaniel.jpg

Aaron McDaniel, CEO and Co-Founder of RealEstateAnalysis.co

Ever get frustrated with how long it takes (and how complicated it can be) to analyze a new multifamily property you are interested in buying? We definitely have! 

 

That's why we created the ANALYSIS CONCIERGE at RealEstateAnalysis.co, a free online system that allows investors to send over a property's marketing materials (like Offering Memorandums) and then receive a comprehensive financial analysis and customized score for how closely the deal matches your unique investment objectives. The Analysis Concierge then connects investors with lenders to fund the deal. Learn more at RealEstateAnalysis.co

 

 

 

 

Heath Silverman, CEO and Co-Founder of Stessa.com

Stessa - Heath headshot.png

 

After an extensive deep-dive on a property resulted in a number of discoveries that nearly doubled the value of a multifamily building, Heath and Jonah were inspired to build a scalable technology solution to pass the same portfolio optimization insights to all residential property investors. Using dashboard reporting, real-time data analytics, and intelligent automation, they knew it was possible to increase transparency and save investors both time and money. Stessa was built from the ground-up with the investor in mind to take care of monitoring and analyzing the details so you don’t have to.

 

 

Kenson Goo, CEO and Founder of RentZend.com

KensonGoo.jpeg

 

Kenson realized some of the challenges of own and managing properties when he bought some investment properties in Tennessee. Having a strong technical background, he soon realized that there was no solution in the market for on going management of activities related to property management and tenant communications. He went on to create RentZend which allows landlords, property managers to better manage their properties, handle communications and get real time updates.
