Commercial Real Estate Investment Coach -  Shane Melanson, helps Canadian real estate investors looking to scale into commercial and multifamily properties.

This is specifically for Canadian real estate investors who: already own several investment properties, have some capital and are looking to invest in 7 and 8 figure commercial properties.

For the past 12 years, I've helped real estate investors transact more than a quarter billion in income producing real estate.  Some clients have been able to replace a 6 figure income with a single property* (not an income claim, requires hard work, dedication and capital).

There are three primary ways I can help you invest.  Which would you like help with?

No Longer Rely On 1 Source of Revenue

Resources to help Real Estate Investors get to the next level. 

Relying on one source of income today is risky.  Owning assets, like single family rentals (SFRs) is a good place to start.  But for many entrepreneurs and professionals earning mid 6 figures/year, they quickly realize to replace $200,000/year in income, they'll need 50+ rental homes.

Most investors have heard about Commercial Real Estate Investments.  But, where to start? Who to trust?  How much money do you need?  What is the process to start investing in apartment buildings or industrial properties without making expensive mistakes? 3 Steps to Get Started:

About Shane

I started like many real estate investors - buying and fixing up single family properties, finding tenants to generate a few hundred/month.  When the Calgary market was appreciating 5%/year - my portfolio looked good.

Back then I was working a fulltime job and managing multiple properties.  I didn't have a family.  So working long hours and weekends didn't bother me.  Fast forward, today, married with 3 kids- I wanted more time to be with my family.

The goal of investing in real estate was to give me freedom- not create a 2nd low paying job.

In 2008, I partnered with my father-in-law, a 40 year veteran developer and commercial real estate investor. He taught me how to invest in 7 and 8 figure commercial and multifamily properties.

  • The importance of market timing.
  • How to secure capital (both debt and equity).
  • Who you need on your team to help you.
  • How to structure and negotiate large deals

When I started, most clients were REIT's, Pension Funds and Wealthy Families.  Once in a while a physician, engineer or business owner would ask me to help them buy a apartment, retail or warehouse building.  It was in helping individuals making the leap from single family to commercial where I saw I could add the most value to investors.

Commercial transactions are complicated and require guidance for new investors. But I didn't see anyone in the market offering to educate and help the new CRE investors.  The world of commercial real estate is a tight knit group of insiders.  Helping new investors is time consuming.  So brokers and service providers generally focus on those with a track record.  Because brokers are paid when the close deals, there was really no incentive to help these new investors.

Working with clients like Dan, buy his first commercial property so he could one day leave his practice is a great feeling.

One commercial property was the equivalent to owning 35+ single family homes.

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.
