Mentoring with Michael Blank

The most effective program on the planet to help you do your first apartment building deal. Because once you do that first deal, the “Law of the First Deal” takes over and you're just 2-3 years away from financial freedom.

As a mentoring disciple, you’ll work directly with one of our highly experienced mentors who have successfully replaced their income with apartment buildings. Yes, they’ve already done what you want to do, which is to become financially free. In addition to providing their own experience, they’ve been trained in my unique 12-month training program designed to help you do your first deal so that you can become financially free in the next 3-5 years.

Just a word of warning though…

We don’t accept everyone into the program. We’re looking for action takers, who are willing to do the work. Someone who REALLY wants to change his or her life. If that’s you, then watch the video below and if you think mentoring might be right for you, schedule a free strategy call with us.

Brad Tacia

Brad Tacia

MENTOR

Brad was an engineering manager for a car parts manufacturer, and saw many of his friends lose their jobs in the recession. He was working 50+ hours per week and had to explain to his daughter each night that he had to work the next day. He wanted to quit his engineering job by going into real estate, and began pursuing a single family rental strategy. He determined that it would take too long and decided to switch to multifamily.

He then did 3 deals, totaling 87 units, and covered his living expenses. Total elapsed time? Just under two years. Since then, he’s accumulated a total of 160 units and is looking for more. He shares Michael’s passion about helping others do their first deal so that they too can become financially free like he did.

JEREMY LEMERE

JEREMY LEMERE

MENTOR

Jeremy LeMere, a 25 year manufacturing engineer, purchased his first duplex in 2010. He began investing with the goal of retiring by the time he turned 55. In 2011 he completed his 3 year MBA journey. Leveraging the opportunity in the foreclosure market, he began rehabbing single family homes in 2013 to build a strong equity position in his portfolio. In the spring of 2017 he experienced a career disrupting event that pushed him to scale up more quickly. In 2018 he closed on a 28 unit apartment property. Three months later he closed on an 8 unit property that allowed him to become financially free from his engineering career, thus achieving his goal by the time he was 45.

Since 2018 Jeremy has continued to diversify his investments by expanding his personal rental portfolio, passively investing in out of state assets, providing hard money loans, and syndicating deals (including a recent 289 unit multi site self storage operation). Jeremy spends time helping others learn about real estate by participating in local REIA organizations and the apartment associations, actively encouraging others to get into real estate.
