Warrior Win

Tyson Burtenshaw

I am an Engineer Manager at a Rocket facility with an engineering degree & an MBA. I have always loved RE. Our first home was a 4plex which we updated, managed and have kept till this day. Our family has grown to 6 kids so continuing to build meant turning to Multifamily, which has been an incredible decision. We joined the Warrior group in April 2020, joined some deals with Warriors as an LP and help close our first deal, a 297 unit in Houston last fall.

How did you find this property?

How did you structure the financing of this property?

75% LTV, 5 yrs, 5.4% interest, I/O 3 yrs, $1.485M Rehab, 30 yrs.

Was this a joint venture or syndication?


How did you raise the equity?

Friends & Family (for my part)

What was the equity raise?


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

I had originally raised $500k for another deal in Dallas, TX but that deal ended up not working out with the shift in financing and the seller not willing to move. This deal in Houston was open and available for the investors to move their money into. I had a couple of investors decided not to come into the Houston deal as a result of changing.

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

Make sure I am an active part in the GP. I have had to try to be a part of the operating side of the business and be more of an active part of the GP team.
