How To Become A Certified  Real Estate Private Equity Fund and Joint Venture Structure Specialist

At Last! You’ll Have a Step-By-Step Formula and System To…

STRUCTURE A COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE FUND OR JOINT VENTURE –  REGARDLESS OF EXPERIENCE.

In fact, very few people actually know the difference between these two major structures and fail to get any institutional investor to listen to them because they don’t know how to structure before the pitch.

 

And if you don’t know these differences, and when and why they are used, then you have no right talking to anyone about your deals. Period.

 

Professionally, you’ll never be a “grown up” investor because you don’t speak the same language of high finance as institutional investors will expect you to know. They will qualify and judge you – not on your credit or income – on your

Intellectual capital.

The differences you’re expected to know are:  

  • Discretion and control
  • How Promotes And Crossed Promotes Are Calculated
  • Investor Profiles: LPs vs Institutional Equity
  • Realization Timeline For Your Fund or JV
  • Capital Stacks
  • When Profits Are Paid: Current Pay vs Accrual Pay
  • Profits Structures: Straight Line vs. IRR Look Back vs. Fixed Exit Fee vs. IRR Waterfall     

And in today’s cynical market, it’s not enough to simply be an “investor.”

 

If you want to add value, you need to know how to structure solutions around opportunities. You need to focus on being a Transactional Specialist.

 

Opportunities always exist, in up markets, and down markets.

You need to SPECIALIZE.

As a Real Estate Fund and JV Transactional Specialist, you set yourself apart from every single investor in your market. You send a crystal clear message to your prospects that you have a thorough understanding of their needs and concrete solutions to their problems.

 

As a certified specialist, you grab the lion’s share of deals, you attract the BEST clients, and you command much higher fees for your services and expertise. And when you specialize, you automatically position yourself as THE expert and authority in your market. And that leads effortlessly to attracting investors, capital, and deals.

 

The cold, brutal truth of the matter is…

INSTITUTIONS, LENDERS, SPONSORS, AND OPERATORS NEED SOMEONE LIKE YOU TO TRUST AND DEPEND ON

And to be that investor, that deal maker, that intermediary, that transactional specialist, you simply need the right training to make it happen.

 

And that’s exactly what you get in this Real Estate Fund and Joint Venture Master Class and ACPARE Certification Program.
