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.

"...The Best Real Estate Professionals We Have Had The Pleasure of Partnering With..."

“Being very serious investors, we have dealt with a wide number and variety of persons selling real estate. Of the dozens we have dealt with, you have been patient and responsive to our developing a five-year real estate purchasing business plan. I will go so far as to say you are the best real estate professionals we have had the pleasure of partnering with… Your calm and persistent nature has made us feel very comfortable with you and you have earned our trust in our business venture together. Tanya and I are looking forward to our future of real estate investing with you!”
- Bill & Tanya Naber

"Above and Beyond"

“I have nothing but positive things to say … they go above and beyond when it comes to communicating with their investors and providing great customer service. Even when things don’t go as planned (like when the utility company implements a new policy and delays the renting process by more than 3 weeks!), they always keep me informed about what’s going on, and I feel they really do care about me, my properties, and my renters.

It’s rare to find this kind of dedication and service from a real estate company (or any type of company for that matter!), and best of all, the returns we’ve been getting have blown away any other investment my wife and I have ever been involved in!”​
- Phong Nguyen

"I am Just Amazed at the Returns I'm Getting and Can Now Realistically See Myself Retiring in A Little Less Than 5 Years!"

“I have always invested in stocks, mutual funds, and other types of traditional investments, so when I heard of the returns that DreamVest was touting, I was intrigued, but I was also very skeptical and thought it was too good to be true. After completing my first investment, I’m just amazed at the returns I’m getting, and can now realistically see myself retiring in a little less than 5 years.”
