Warrior Win

Ed Modzel

I have been a real estate investor since 1980 and made the switch to multifamily over 3 years ago. I am an owner in 720 units as a GP & 586 units as an LP. I am currently under contract on 3 properties for an additional 261 units. I recently went ‘Full Cycle’ my first multifamily deal outlined here.
I have been a coach for 2 years, I host a multifamily investor Meetup and I am a member of an Rod’s elite nationwide mastermind group.
While proudly serving in the US Navy for 6 years, I met my wife Pilar and we have been married over 41 years. We are parents to 3 beautiful daughters and a new grandson. Life is good.
I retired as Chief Engineer with a 10-time Emmy Award winning TV show in 2015 and I am a lifelong drummer.

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

I have been a Warrior over 3 years and it has been a major factor in my success.

How did you find this property?

Through the CRE broker with whom I’ve built a relationship with and asked me to take over the deal.

How did you structure the financing of this property?

Local Bank

Was this a joint venture or syndication?

Joint Venture

How did you raise the equity?

From people I met at my meetup group and other meetup groups.

What was the equity raise?


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

I had to fire 2 property managers within the first year and take over the role myself and bring the asset to sale

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

Property management is a challenge on a 40-unit C class asset. Referrals are a must when selecting a property manager.

Although we have numerous documented successful deals from our coaching students, we cannot track all of our students’ results, and therefore cannot provide a typical result. You should assume that the average person makes little to no money or could lose money as there is work and risk associated with investing in real estate.
