Commercial Real Estate Training and Coaching

Real Estate Investing Services


Calgary Commercial Real Estate Brokerage Services:

Looking to invest in a commercial or multifamily property in Calgary Alberta?

Specialize in helping real estate investors buy their first commercial building or multifamily property.  Follow the same 5 Step System for investing in commercial properties, I developed to build my own portfolio.

I'll help you identify the right properties that suit your investment criteria, while avoiding the 90% of properties that should be avoided.

My real estate brokerage services are  limited to 2 clients/quarter and ideally suited for investors with a minimum of $500,000 of capital to invest.

Owner Users:

You are a business owner in Calgary and looking to purchase or develop your own commercial property. Owning or developing your own building can be a great way to build wealth when done right.

Having developed industrial and retail properties, my background lends well to first determining whether you should buy an existing building or design and develop your own.

This is not a simple decision and generally requires in depth look at your business, how fast you're growing and how much space you need. This is ideally suited for business owners with a minimum of $1,000,000 and 12 months to find the right property.

Real Estate Investing Coach

Coaching Services: The focus is to help real estate investors who want to scale into commercial real estate make the transition safely.

You've been successful in residential and now looking to create passive income leveraging commercial and multifamily properties.

Many of my clients (Physicians, Dentists, IT Professionals, Business Owners) who have bought 5 or more residential properties and tired of the work single family investing created.   Or, they come to me because they feel they are over exposed to the stock market.

No longer trading time for money- your money is working for you. This is suited for investors in Canada and the US with a minimum of $250,000 in capital looking to invest passively or actively in commercial real estate. You want someone to guide you through the process, who isn't conflicted with incentives (IE a commission for selling you a property).

As an investor and developer, I take on a handful of clients to coach each month.

Step 1, is to help you create a clear road map on how to invest to create the net worth you require in retirement.

The Process: Find the right properties, then secure the financing (debt and equity) and then fixing (optimizing) the property for maximum cash flow.

Small Group Coaching: start with 10 week Training Program with 3 calls per month, lasting 90 Minutes (all recorded if you miss).  It is ideal for investors who either have commercial properties now or are in the process of purchasing a property in the very near future.

Please contact Shane for availability.

what you can expect:

We work to define your Vision and what you want out of investing in Commercial Real Estate.

You'll have a clear understanding of where you are now (Point A) and where you want to get to (Point B- the Destination).

The first step in any journey is to have 2 clear points- your starting point and the destination. With a clearly defined vision we will design a plan (tactics/strategies) to get you to the outcome you want.

My Proprietary Investing Process is called: Club Syndication Commercial Real Estate Program.

If you've looked into commercial real estate consultants or coaches in the past, you've probably noticed there is no clear finish line. My approach is different. I want you have a plan, tools, and the skills needed to start investing in commercial real estate at the end of our engagement.

I only work with a limited number of clients at a time. My main focus is investing and doing my own investments. And, yes, I am actively investing in commercial real estate. I'm not a real estate consultant that is teaching something that might have worked 10 years ago.

As I write this, I have a $9,100,000 retail development, 10 unit Townhouse, 6,700 sq.ft Retail project and 3 other properties at various levels of due diligence. I tell you this so you know that I'm in the game and practice what I preach.  You're going to get the most up-to-date training from someone who's actually doing this.

commercial real estate Q&A

Question: "Do I get to work with Shane personally- or do I get someone who Shane has trained?"

Answer: You get me. At this time, I'm the only person who is consulting clients. Which is why, I'm limiting the number of clients at anyone time. In Group coaching- you still get just me and the group sizes are kept small.


Question: "What if I don't have millions to invest- how do I even get started investing in commercial properties?"

Answer: You don't need millions of your own money. I have one client who purchased a $180,000 commercial property and, once he leases up the property, will be worth (conservatively) $950,000 - $1,100,000. Do these deals come along everyday?

Depends on your market- but yes, in almost any market, you can find opportunities and not all commercial deals are millions.

If you want to scale into larger properties (my specialty) I'll show you how to leverage "Other People's Money" to invest. And, how to find the right type of properties that investors want to invest in.


Question: "What if I'm just getting started- and I don't have any experience investing. Is anyone really going to invest with me?"

Answer: Most of my clients have never invested in real estate before. You don't need to have 5 single family houses under your belt to be successful in commercial real estate.

I'll show you how to create your DREAM TEAM to add credibility to your deals. When you work with me- there's an opportunity to leverage my name and credibility (provided you follow my advice and specific requirements).


Question: "I'm too busy to do this work- I just want to invest in commercial real estate with someone I can trust. Can't I just give you or someone like you money to invest?"

Answer: The short answer is Yes. You can just invest with someone like me- however, my goal is to have you fully aware of what you're investing in.

Most sophisticated and credible syndicators want sophisticated investors in their deals. Why? Because they don't want the burden of having hand-holding throughout an investment. A knowledgeable investor is a great investor.


Question: "Shane, I don't even know where to start to find deals- what do I do first?"

Answer: Investing in Value Add Commercial Real Estate is a Process. There is a very clear 9 Step Framework I use to find, finance and fix the properties. When you work with me, I walk you through that process and show you how to get started- step 1,2,3 etc.

If you live in Calgary or, are willing to invest in Calgary- I walk you through the entire process from start to finish. You can leverage my contacts and relationships.
