Kind Words From My Clients

Jose Jafferji

Jose Jafferji - Savvy Real Estate Group

Multifamily Investor - $90M AUM
I wanted to share my experience working with Shane as I've gotten to know him over the past year.  His knowledge in commercial real estate is vast, in capital raising and developer.
This guy just doesn't sleep... check him out on Instagram, where he's recording videos at 5am on his morning walks.
Now, Shane knows the game of real estate investing.  Ultimately, if it's a great deal, he'll raise the capital and build the team around him to execute on it.
If you have the opportunity to learn from him - do not miss out.

Shane is one of the few people in this industry who I feel I can really trust- amazing information, no bs, and always authentic.

Appreciate you Shane, for dropping knowledge as always. I’m a rookie investor, but feeling more and more confident by the day.

Niyi recorded an episode on his top podcast "I'm Not You" that you can check out here.

Many thanks Shane for your hard work on this project.

It's certainly a great learning experience, especially on our first commercial property.

We're extremely lucky to have such experienced team working with us, without your help and guidance we would definitely be lost and not able to pull it off.

Please accept our sincere appreciation to you, words cannot describe our gratitude but thank you is indeed from the bottom of our hearts.

I’ve been watching Shane’s Facebook videos and it has taken me on to a whole new investing path that I had no idea existed.

He is very clear and systematic in his approach. He doesn’t tease you with just enough information for you to need to go buy his material to get a full understand.

I would advise you to listen to the podcast now and start learning a new way to invest.

Shane is extremely knowledgeable and experienced in the area of commercial real estate.  In selecting someone I wanted to work with, it was important they have depth and breadth of knowledge in the areas of investing, capital raising and developments.
The biggest gain from working with Shane was being able to proceed with the opportunity in a new of area of real estate with confidence.  With confidence I took action and moved forward on my plans to do a larger (development) project.
His manner is very matter of fact.  I encourage others to reach out to Shane to stretch themselves and get the expert education/coaching that is limited in this space.

Joel Labonte

Entrepreneur - General Partner and operator at Dwellscape Investments
After extensive due diligence we have closed on our 17 unit value add multifamily property in Cranbrook.
Most recently - Joel closed on another multifamily project in Cranbrook - a 58 Unit Multifamily.  He and his partner (Chad Walmsely, another coaching client) found a great off market property, raised the necessary funds to close and are already well on their way to raising rents and increasing value.
Last we spoke - they are being sent off market deals and continue to grow their portfolio.
