We are living in an age where almost everyone we see is working their hardest to build a future for themselves. This can be seen further aggravated by the recession we are currently facing!
However, financial and work woes are not the same for everyone, which I realized after talking to a former ER Doctor who is now helping investors make money even in the recession. The job of an ER Doctor and others in the medical field is known for taking a toll on one’s body and mind. You constantly deal with unheard situations and help people on their worst days. The next patient you will be dealing with can come with gunshot wounds, accident injuries, or anything else!
Amidst all this, one never gets the time to think about their financial health or ways to improve it. Everyone seeks financial freedom in their lives but to get it; you need time and a strategy to pursue.
This is precisely what Ronnie Shalev is helping people do now. Why? Because Ronnie has herself been through the same situation as an ER Doctor and is now helping doctors and other professionals, like herself, get closer to financial freedom and earn passive income with her company Shalwin Properties.
Ronnie’s journey from introduction to Real Syndication to acquiring $186 Million in assets
During the most exhausting times in her medical career (she was at times treating 50 odd patients a night), she was introduced to real estate investing by a friend of a friend.
The person who introduced the concept to her had investments in several 7/11s that brought in regular income to him. At first, she thought of it as a pyramid scheme, but after due diligence, she took the leap of faith and invested in her first syndication. It was a single-tenant triple-net lease. After receiving cheques regularly in her account, she invested in another property, then another, and never looked back.
After a while, she formed her company Shalwin Properties and started helping her colleagues in the medical industry generate passive income through investments in syndicates.
How do Real Estate Syndications work?
Real Estate Syndications are a way of helping people invest in prime real estate without breaking the bank. The concept basically clubs numerous investors (sometimes 100s), each investing a certain amount with the syndication. The amount is pooled and used to acquire sizable real estate projects.
But what about managing the properties and dealing with tenants?
Syndications are formed by two types of partners: general partners and limited partners. Usually, limited partners are the ones who invest their money into the property, and the general partners work on acquiring the property, securing the debt, managing the capital raise, executing on the business plan, and everything else.
What does this mean for limited partners? Their investment is growing while someone else deals with late-night tenant calls, repairs, fixes, roof leaks, and all other emergencies. They won’t have to worry about finding tenants or evicting them. They don’t have to analyze markets or property financials.
Limited partners get their returns back regularly while having access to every bit of information about their property. Because of all these benefits, the real estate syndications’ model has earned popularity all over, and investors, even from foreign countries, are investing in the US.
Ronnie’s journey with syndications
After investing in her first syndication and getting regular returns, Ronnie started saving money from her income and investing that into syndications. She and her husband even refinanced their home to invest in syndications, and she eventually started making enough passive income to comfortably leave her ER Doctor job.
She also started helping her colleagues and friends invest in syndications, eventually leading to Shalwin Properties. Her company, Shalwin Properties, helps people passively invest in real estate without doing the hard work. Investments usually range between $50k to $100k, with an average investment of $75k.
The best part is that investors can invest in cash-flowing, recession-resistant assets that appreciate in value. Ronnie’s company creates and implements a value add strategy to increase the property’s value and do all the hard work which a multi-million real estate dollar company would do, all while investors have invested less than $100k.
How has Ronnie’s company acquired 1000s of apartment units
What started with a small idea and a small $25,000 investment has now grown into a multi-million dollar portfolio. With investments from all over, Ronnie’s company Shalwin Properties has acquired thousands of apartment units.
The company started with a 200-unit apartment complex acquisition in Houston in September of 2021, followed by apartment complexes (688 units) in Fort Worth.
They have also acquired a 184-unit apartment complex in Las Vegas and have just recently acquired 2 apartment complexes (258 units) in Dallas, Tx, in June 2022.
The future ahead
With thousands of acquired units and hundreds of people heading towards financial independence, the future looks great for real estate syndications, especially Ronnie’s company Shalwin Properties.
The concept is slowly gaining widespread popularity, and with more and more people joining syndications, real estate investments and their lucrative returns will become accessible to almost everyone.
