Warrior Win

Albert Sidhom

I started out as a licensed professional counselor (LPC), then went on to become a full-time realtor. All the while picking up rental properties through the years. I built a strong portfolio of 21 units that cover most of my living costs but decided I was ready for that next class of investment when I decided to join the warrior program. I had plenty of doubts and frustrations as I joined during one of the worst years of real estate in 2023 but now find myself with an outstanding first deal and excited for more.

Any comments about your experience so far in the Warrior Program?

I enjoyed my coach and all the resources
this deal came up at about my 3rd to last coaching session and I had my final one after we closed. Overall great experience.

How did you find this property?


How did you structure the financing of this property?

I used a private lender and took out a loan of 600k to cover rehab costs as well. The lender placed 2nd lien on a high equity rental of mine as the down payment. I sold one of my single-family residences and used the 34k in profit as a 1031 into the deal. I also received a commission on the deal as the buyer’s agent.

Was this a joint venture or syndication?

Neither, I bought it myself.

How did you raise the equity?


What was the equity raise?


What are some hurdles you had to overcome to get this deal done?

It was mostly psychological. I was really scared to take it on, a lot of anxiety and fear of failure surfaced but I kept pushing through as the numbers and all the signs kept making sense.

What are some of the lessons you learned with this deal?

Do all inspections! no matter how good the deal. I skipped the electrical because everything looked good, but it turned out the electrical was never permitted and I had to file for an extra meter.and then re-permit the whole complex. An added 7k expense.
