It took a complete financial wipeout before I really started learning how to play the real estate investing game, but looking back at it now… it was the best thing that could’ve ever happened to me!

Because it forced me to work on my game.

My creativity soared.

I got a whole lot more resourceful.

My analytical skills got 10 times sharper.  

And so did my negotiation skills, so the deals just kept getting better and better.

I also got a little smarter I guess, so I started paying way closer attention to things like timing, the Property Cycle, and area selection.

Because when you’re stripped of all your assets and resources like I was, you don’t have a lot of room for error.

So I really went to work on upping my game.

Not from inspiration, but desperation!

I had no choice.

It didn’t feel like it at the time, but man… there were so many benefits of having to go through a “rising from the ashes” period like this…

For one, I had to develop an “A Game”, just to be able to get in the game.

As a result, I never want to say that it becomes impossible to lose (because there’s always risk).

But I do want to say that it makes it harder to lose.  

I remember a few years ago someone came up to me and said… 

“You know … you’re so lucky.  Everything seems to come so easy for you.”

He was talking about real estate investing.  Which really cracked me up.

Why?  Well, to get to the point where things seem to ‘come so easy’, here’s the path I had to go through:

2 Business Failures (and these are just the big glaring ones … there were others!)  

2 Foreclosures


And the big D…


Now you tell me, does that look like EASY STREET to you?

It’s not necessarily the path I prescribe, but there’s certainly tremendous value in having a ‘never say die’ mentality.  

A person who never gives up will always succeed.  


So anyway, I’ve been at this real estate thing now for over 25 years, have been involved in over 684 commercial & residential transactions, and oversee a growing portfolio spread across 5 states in the U.S.  

Some fun facts about me:  I’m an avid traveler… part-time health nut (with a weakness for pancakes)… sports fan (love all sports, but it’s mainly boxing these days)… and a reader and student of good books and courses in the realm of business, real estate, spirituality, health & wellness, and personal growth.  

Oh, and I like showing people how to create more passive income so they can live life on their own terms and do more fun stuff. 😊



Who We Are And What We Do

DreamVest Capital Management caters to busy professionals, business owners, entrepreneurs, and hands-off private investors who want to increase, replace, or supplement their income… with passive cash flow from real estate-oriented investments.

Here are the 4 types of investments we make available to our clients:

Private Mortgage Lending

This is when you loan out your money and start receiving payments, just like the bank.

As a Private Mortgage Lender, your investment is secured by real estate (typically a single family home, or sometimes by a 2-4 unit property)… there are no tenants or toilets to worry about (remember, you’re the bank, not a landlord) … it’s an ideal investment for your IRA or 401k (although you don’t need one)… and your overall fixed return can be phenomenal (8-12% or more).

Typical investment amounts are in $25k - $50k increments if you'd like to invest in a small group, or we can set aside an entire investment if you prefer to be a solo investor (up to $250k).

Term of Investment: 1 - 5 years depending your goals/objectives.

Note Investments

This is similar to Private Mortgage Lending, but instead of originating the loan, as a Note Investor, you’re acquiring an existing loan (also called a ‘Promissory Note’ or ‘Note’) on a piece of real estate and you receive the monthly payments, just like the bank.  Notes already exist and usually have some kind of track record in place, which typically makes them easier to evaluate.

Joint Ventures (JV’s)

Our Joint Ventures (JV) are properties that are available as partnerships, so you have direct ownership in the assets we acquire.  We do all the heavy lifting (finding/negotiating/securing the deal + rehab and project management + marketing/selling of the property) and our JV partners finance the acquisition, rehab, and holding costs. 

Depending on the project, the average annual return for our investors is typically between 15% - 25% or more. 

JV's are available on two types of opportunities: 

=>  Larger and/or more extensive fix & flip projects, where the perceived risk is a little higher (although our experience and track record substantially diminishes the risk). 

Typical investment amounts are in $25k - $50k increments if you'd like to invest in a small group, or we can also set aside an entire investment if you prefer to be a solo investor (up to $1.2M). 

Term of Investment: 6-12 months 

=> Smaller 1-4 unit properties (primarily single-family homes) that we sell to owner-occupants via seller financing or rent-to-own. 

Typical investment amounts are in $25k - $50k increments if you'd like to invest in a small group, or we can also set aside an entire investment if you prefer to be a solo investor (up to $500k). 

Term of Investment: 1-5 years

Syndication (Group Investing)

Our syndications are group investments in mainly commercial multifamily projects (larger apartment complexes). 

Ex. A recent one was a $3.4M Class B Apartment Complex in the Midwest.  Investors get an 8-12% cash-on-cash return, payable quarterly, plus 60% of the profit upon sale of the property in 3-5 years, which boosts their overall average annual return to between 15 - 25% or more (our typical target for our syndications).

Typical investment amounts are in $25k - $50k increments.

Term of Investment: 3-5 years.

“Passive Income to Power Your Dreams”



Do you prefer being a Passive Investor (meaning you primarily invest money in deals, and receive passive income)?

Do you love the idea of investing in real estate, but simply don’t have the time or inclination to become an Active Investor?

Like the idea of someone else doing the heavy lifting… and working with a team with a proven track record?

If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above, then this may be the option for you!



Are you (or do you want to be) an Active Investor (meaning you find, develop, and manage your own deals)?

Do you have a burning desire to play the real estate investing game?

Do you have an extra 5-20 hours a week to devote towards learning and applying?

If so, then this may be the best option for you!
