“As an investor in Park Canyon I am so impressed with the management team. One of the things that I really like are the quarterly updates of the project. They keep you informed of what is going on with the project and point out both the good and the bad. You are never kept in the dark about your investment. This is a fantastic project and I am so happy that I am an investor!”

“I’ve invested in 6 of Neal’s projects. As I write this, we just had the first successful exit: the Windward Forest Multifamily project, where we earned >20% IRR.
Neal is extremely agile. Until COVID hit us, his projects were mostly multifamily deals (each with some value-add strategy that should increase the NOI). Since then, he realized that there may be higher risk in such deals due to tenants’ unemployment, inability to pay rent, and eviction restrictions. So his last few projects are construction projects that will hopefully get completed after the pandemic is over.
Still, I am very impressed by the multifamily projects performance: the occupancy levels have not gone down, and rent collection is very high, given the circumstances. I personally like the multifamily projects more, as they offer dividends from the rent income, and it’s easier to predict their performance. Anyways, I trust Neal’s numbers, so I have invested in his recent construction projects, too. Keep them coming, Neal!”
— Ivan Z.
“Neal and his team are awesome! I’ve invested in 4 projects with him and after 2 years we’ve already sold one. He’s outperformed other syndicates that I’ve invested with for much longer. I love getting his monthly updates. It’s rare to have a syndicator update us so regularly.
Grocapitus is a breath of fresh air. They do things differently and way better than their competitors. Thank you Neal for being an amazing leader to your team! I couldn’t be happier with the results so far. Looking forward to investing more in the future.”
— Sarah L.
“I had met Neal at a real estate investor meetup a few years back. Neal was very positive about investing in multifamily. He does a lot of research using data analytics on markets, identifying growth areas, finding good neighborhoods and shares the data and his findings with interested people and clients. His presentations are filled with a lot of info about the market, the property, the financials the expected returns, and his team patiently answers questions.
One of our investments with Neal had an exit with better than projected returns (during uncertain times with the pandemic)!!”
— Vengal D.
“Challenging times take a dedicated group to plan and execute to meet investment objectives. The site and asset management teams at Grocapitus have worked hard to maintain occupancy, keep tenants safe, and delinquency low. Collectively, they have effectively managed expenses and incrementally increased rents to exceed NOI budget expectations.”
— Rob D.
“I have invested in a couple of opportunities with Grocapitus. One of them is a multifamily property, which has been performing superbly, and way better than the initial predictions. The second one is a new construction project, which is on-time, even during the COVID-19 pandemic. And the marketing material that the team has put together to lease these new units is top-notch. Awesome job by Neal and his team in managing the properties and consistent communication with their investors.
As a Limited Partner to invest in a syndication, for me, trust is a big factor. With Neal’s vast experience in multifamily construction, data-driven approach, and creative ways in solving problems as well as straightforwardness helped in creating the trust. I look forward to working with Neal on future opportunities.”
— Avinash P., 2-time investor
“Hi All. Thank you for a thorough and newsy update. I am still in awe of your work efforts and completions in such a short time frame. And in these hot, hot, hot summer months no less. The report is very detailed and it makes me feel like I am there to look at it all. Thank you for your dedication to excellence and for all your conscientious efforts. It is much appreciated.”
— Lisa H.
” Neal, I’ve had tremendous response from your presentation. You are absolutely one of the most fascinating and powerful forces in the space right now Neal. A true gentleman, professional, and magician of words and ideas. And what I love is that there is no sales pitch, only knowledge-based education which leads to lucrative results. I’m truly humbled to see your process in action. Thank you for being abundant. “

After purchase, if the property is a turnaround property team members work relentlessly to stabilize the property.
Add Value and Improve
With effective management and enhancement of the property we are able to improve occupancy rates and increase rent rates, resulting in increased property values and higher cash flow for happy investors.
3-5 Year Exit
We strive to divest the property and return capital and profits to investors in a 3-5 year time period. We take pride in communicating frequently with our investors, and provide updates on progress toward reaching the stated exit price for the property.

How We Select Properties
Rent Growth Track Record
We ensure that the property’s submarket has a strong 12 month rent growth track record
Problem areas such as low performing staff, ineffective marketing, and poor curb appeal can be fixed quickly.
Local Growth Drivers
We love properties in areas experiencing local job growth drivers such as increasing corporate relocations or landmark construction
Only a small percentage of properties we underwrite meet our strict buying criteria. A property must have massive value add potential for us to move forward with an offer.
How We Work With Investors
Individual (Retail) Investors
Our investors can invest as little as $50,000 in most of our syndicated projects, and can typically be accredited or non-accredited. We work closely with our investors to understand their investment needs and the suitability of our syndicated investment projects to help them meet their goals.
Institutional Investors And Funds
We are able to offer institutional investors preferred equity in most of our projects, and work closely to match up institutional investors with appropriate opportunities.
We encourage Family Office principals to diversify and consider value-add real estate in properties that have upside and long-term appreciation potential.
High net worth individuals
After countless discussions with high net worth individuals we understand their investing philosophy and needs. The in-depth individualized process we have created is able to help them find, purchase, and manage properties that meet their specific risk, cash flow, and time needs.

Just heard your podcast w/ Rod Khleif. Just wanted to reach out and tell you that I loved the podcast. I used to run a currency focused investment fund and as soon as I heard you say “backtesting” my ears perked up. That’s all we used to do is backtest trading algorithms. Anyway, just wanted to say hi and that it was a very cool podcast.
I just listened to you on Rod Khleif’s podcast. I really loved how you have metrics for everything, I’m a numbers geek myself and your criteria really resonated with me.
