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

Rod’s education and the support of the other warriors I have worked with and met along the way have made this all possible.

How did you find this property?

Looking on line daily to find property to practice underwriting. Loop net listing. Found it underwrote it and it looked good.

How did you structure the financing of this property?

Freddie Mac loan
3.29%  30 year Am  75% leverage

Was this a joint venture or syndication?


What was the equity raise?


How did you raise the equity?

Deal sponsor and GP team raised equity, private equity placement

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

First warrior I approached said deal was to thin. Third one finally sponsored. 12 initial offers. Went to best and final. We got that. During actual walk of property found a major retaining wall problem. Had to get a seller credit. Lender forced us to do a phase two inspection. They thought there was a repair station gas station and cleaners on the property. Only cleaners over 70 years ago. Then lender took away 2 years IO and 80% leverage they originally offered when we first started out. And a few other problems.


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

Always have a plan B and C in place you never know when things can change in the deal.
Make sure someone is always in top of every step in the process

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.
