All-Star Real Estate Crowdfunding Fund Managers 2017-2018

3 rare diamonds in the rough: sponsors who went through the last recession and never lost investor money.

Real estate investment author, Paul Kaseburg, has been around the block, and has invested in a mind blowing $1.7 billion in real estate deals. So when he shared his secret for finding great sponsors with me, I listened really closely. Kaseburg only picks fund managers who have:

  1. A history of consistent net returns (in the same product type and strategy) through an entire market cycle or more.

  2. A fully integrated platform (staffing, management, expertise) and are an active buyer/seller (so they can get better leads and deals)

Unfortunately, finding a sponsor like that on one of the crowdfunding platforms today feels like trying to find a purple cow. While most are active, 99% are too green to have a record through the last recession.

So I went on a quest to find the diamonds in the rough: All-Star sponsors that meet the Kaseburg tests. I got leads from hundreds of investors and interviewed countless sponsors to find 3 hidden treasures.

  • Amy Tait: Broadstone Net Lease

  • Edward Griffin: Griffin Partners

  • Lawrence N. Taylor: Christina Development

Code of Ethics: To remove conflicts of interest that are rife on other sites, I / we do NOT accept any money from any outside sponsors or platforms for ANYTHING. This includes but is not limited to: no money for postings, nor will, nor tutorials, nor guides, nor advertising, nor affiliate leads etc. Nor do I negotiate special terms for myself above what I negotiate for the benefit of members.

For clarity: I do receive monetary compensation in two ways: via donations or a club feeder. Site members can send donations (and a $200 donation entitles them to access my personal low-level due diligence notes on investments I've put money into). And if the club chooses to create a feeder, I take a fee as manager (and keep the excess beyond expenses). Very occasionally a sponsor may choose to reimburse some of the costs of creating a feeder as well.


Additionally I receive the same non-monetary compensation all club members do: Access to otherwise inaccessible sponsors, millions of dollars of special deals and discounts, the satisfaction of giving back and helping others, and more.
