Meet Shane Melanson – Dad, Husband, Developer, Investor, and Capital Raising Specialist
Does any of this familiar?
- I started to invest in real estate and it was supposed to be a safe, secure way to protect and grow my money. I own 3 or 4 single family homes, they have some equity in them, but I’m only collecting a few hundred dollars a month in positive cash flow and I’m not any closer to replacing my income. If one of my tenants moves out, my cash flow goes to 0. I can’t see how investing in residential homes (or townhouses or condos) could create financial certainty.
- I don’t have the money or connections to be able to invest in larger deals. I can find good opportunities, if I only had access to capital to be able to buy them.
- I don’t understand commercial real estate. It seems like it’s reserved for the big boys. How can I compete with pension funds or life companies with billions?
- How do I structure my deals to attract wealthy investors? What do I say when we meet? What do they expect? Where do I find them? What do I show them?
If any of this sounds familiar, you’re not alone.
I started investing in single family homes, flipping them to make money. Over time, I moved up to building spec homes and then holding on to houses and doing long term rentals.
I was sold the dream of: invest in real estate and retire in 5 years.
Well, that didn’t happen. I was a millionaire on paper at 30, but I was miserable and working a fulltime job and then flipping properties on the side.
It wasn’t until I met a mentor (now my father-in-law) that showed me how to invest in commercial real estate.
He gave me the blueprint for finding the right properties. Raising millions from investors and then assembling the right teams to help us execute.
Today, I am not retired (I still actively invest), but every real estate deal I invest in now, has the potential to earn 7-figures+. I wake up loving what I do.
I no longer work for anyone (and have been on my own for 8 years). There is still work to get to my dream, where I have enough net worth that I no longer have to work- but, I’m close.
In my experience there are very few real estate investors out there who actually have the dream of complete financial independence. When you know what to look for and what I consider financial certainty- it becomes clear that just because you have a portfolio of $10M or $20M in real estate holdings, doesn’t mean you have enough passive cash flow to stop working.
This is my goal and what I have dedicated the last 10+ years of my life helping others do.
I have made successful real estate investors millions. Today, I’m focused on helping the little guy/gal do the same. It’s not as fulfilling helping someone worth $50M to earn an additional $5M. It’s nice and it pays well- but, it rarely changes their life.
But, when I help an investor buy his first retail plaza and earn $6,500/month in passive income plus have his mortgage paid down an additional $7,600/month – this is life changing. This doctor is one more property away from replacing his income. He could retire and travel with his wife and kids.
If you’d like to learn how to raise enough money to invest in larger real estate projects (like commercial deals- Retail properties, Multifamily or Industrial buildings) then contact me.
We will set up a time to discuss where you’re at now. What you’d like to achieve and how I can help you.
I accept 5 one-on-one clients at any one time. As I still actively invest and raise money for my own deals, I can only take on so many clients at a time.
If you’d like to discuss and find out what the options are- go here and fill out the time that works best for you to talk.
