Warrior Win

Ryan Dworak

Avid learner who has developed multiple side income streams over the last 5 years. I currently own a 4-unit building which I manage myself, I just partnered in a 21 unit JV deal in Atlanta, and I am also a LP investor in a 100 unit deal in FL. Passionate about multifamily and growing other businesses so I can keep putting it into real estate. In the next 3 years I would like to leave my W-2 job and go full time in real estate. I am looking for more time freedom to spend with my growing family.

What was the equity raise?


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

The owner was withholding information from us regarding an easement payment that he was getting from the Georgia DOT. He entered into the agreement to receive $33,000 and that would allow the DOT to come in an fix the driveway and put in drainage. He was breaching the contract and we were supposed to get some of those funds. We were able to involve lawyers and got most of the settlement.

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

You need to be prepared to submit a lot of paperwork if you are an out of state partner investing in an out of state deal and using local debt. Also, keep up on the broker to get you as much info as possible. We had to press him a bit to find out about the DOT settlement. Last, we found a few issues with the property and the owner wasn’t that willing to give us any credits. We had to work hard to get about half the credit we were owed.
