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.
