Unlocking Multifamily Millions: How Vlad Arakcheyev Transformed from Graphic Designer to Syndication Powerhouse


Guest: With over a decade of experience, Vlad has transformed into a formidable figure in real estate, marked by his role as an active investor, co-sponsor, and JV partner in an impressive portfolio encompassing hundreds of multifamily units and lucrative land developments, resulting in multimillion-dollar achievements. His expertise shines in sales, marketing, and the acquisition of distressed and off-market properties. Vlad’s journey encompasses a transition from a graphic designer to a thriving real estate agent in New Jersey, revealing valuable insights on quick decision-making, the power of strategic partnerships, and the cultivation of a growth-oriented mindset.


Big Idea: In this episode we speak with Vlad Arakcheyev who is a dynamic real estate agent and investor who shares his transformation from single-family to multifamily investments. Vlad’s journey takes us from the suburbs of New Jersey to the vibrant markets of Texas and Kansas City. He reveals his strategies for scaling his real estate business through joint ventures and syndications, highlighting the importance of education, networking, and the balance between being a limited partner and a general partner. With his keen eye for undervalued properties and market trends, Vlad uncovers the hidden jewels that have propelled his real estate success.





Dan: You’ve made a switch a little bit here to multifamily. Do you own units and projects in both Texas and Kansas right now?

Vlad: Yes, absolutely. Primarily, we do JVs and syndications when it comes to our acquisitions. It varies depending on the purchase price. Obviously, we can’t buy ten million or $15 million properties ourselves. We pool our money together with passive investors, with investors that want to diversify their portfolios that when they invest in real hard assets, they invest with us into apartment buildings. Of course, we take that for the rest. We improve the properties over 5 years, sell it, and move on to the next ones.

Dan: You’re the limited or the general partner in these deals?

Vlad: I’m always a GP. I’m the operator in them. Like I said, how I started this, I joined a multifamily mastermind. There’s bunch of them out there. I interviewed with a lot. I’ve joined Jake & Gino. They are multifamily mastermind in the community. They’re all over the United States. It costs some money. But let me tell you. If you need education and networking, these are the places where you have to be.

In my opinion, it’s like this. If you want to learn how to ski, you can go up the mountain twenty times, fall down twenty times, and learn by bruising yourself and breaking maybe a few bones. But if you really want to know the proper way of ski, take a lesson. They’ll teach you exactly what you need to do.

Same thing in real estate or multifamily. Instead of doing it all by yourself – because it’s a team sport when it comes to multifamily – I joined the mentorship, connected with groups of people that are buying and doing business in Texas. That’s exactly how I got started by joining a mentor. Yes. I’m a GP in all my deals.
