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.
The Team of Mentors
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.
Drew Whitson has been investing in real estate for the past decade as a passive investor and as a syndicator. After quitting his corporate job he joined the business faculty at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota as a Professor of Finance. He is also one of the mentors with the Michael Blank program. He and his wife have a litter of kids and live in the greater St. Paul area.
Todd Dexheimer, CEO of Venture D Properties, LLC started investing in Real Estate in 2008, mainly in single family homes and multi-family. Since 2008 he has purchased and renovated roughly 500 units.
Todd has completed over 150 flips, including a 20 unit mobile home park, a ski resort and a 15 unit apartment complex, while using those profits to build his rental portfolio.
Phil purchased his first property in 2010 in Norfolk, VA while honorably serving in the United States Navy as a Naval Special Warfare Combatant Craft Crewman (SWCC).
While he enjoyed jumping out of planes, shooting machine guns, and practicing small unit tactics with Navy SEALs and other Special Operations Command operators, his first purchase made him realize that he had a passion for real estate, and committed to pursuing it further when his time in the service was over.
Matt and his partners have achieved considerable success turning their $5,000 investments into a portfolio worth more than $20M, but his greatest passion is teaching. Today, Matt and his wife live in Minneapolis with their three kids. They are active in their church and enjoy all that Minnesota has to offer. Real Estate has given Matt and his family the gift of being planted and he wants to help you do the same.
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.
Barry Flavin has been investing in real estate for over 8 years. He started by rehabbing and selling several of his personal residences, then using the proceeds to purchase 30 single family rentals. After realizing the many opportunities that real estate has to offer, he shifted his focus to multifamily. As of 2020, Barry now owns 387 units. Prior to pursuing real estate as his main focus, he had a successful career in software sales, followed by air traffic control. Barry’s passion ultimately lies in real estate Investment relations. He enjoys sharing his knowledge and opportunities with current and future Investors, with a focus on stable and reliable returns while creating long-lasting relationships. Barry graduated from Western Michigan University in 2005.
Drew accidentally became a landlord in 2008, when he couldn’t sell his condo, and rented it instead. That’s when he realized the power of real estate and hatched a plan to quit his job. He dabbled with a few rentals over the years but was frustrated with how slow the progress was. New Year’s Eve of 2014 he decided to get started with small multifamily buildings. In just 8 months (and 3 deals later), he had covered his living expenses and quit his job. Today he controls over 188 units and doesn’t see himself slowing down. He is super excited to help others do their first deal and become financially free like he was able to do.

David pursued a career in management consulting where he advised private equity buyers on M&A, business process improvement, and cost cutting initiatives. The excessive work travel and time spent away from his family drove David to invest in multi-family properties more aggressively.
