Park Canyon Investor
Neal’s datacentric approach gives him a near oracle like insight into the vagaries of not just commercial real estate, but also macroeconomic trends as they impact microeconomic zones and industries. His ethics are beyond reproach and his interests are clearly aligned with his passive partners.
He is what you want in a partner, someone who is scanning the horizon for both threats and opportunities, someone who can hunt for the right prey at the right time, and you both get to dine on the feast together.
Thanks again for the excellent investor communication and strong execution. Your team’s investor communication is one of the best among the public and private companies I invested in – Regular, transparent, action oriented and strategic.
Grocapitus is not just your average passive real estate syndication. It’s a dynamic powerhouse of real estate investments with outperforming returns. I have partnered in 6 projects with Grocapitus and have already exited on one of them (Greenfill Storage) with 2.16x equity multiple in less then three years.
Neal’s laser sharp focus on industry trends, macro and micro economic indicators combined with data centric research is at the core of such performance. Neal and Anna actively manage every project with a unique and innovative approach to enhance and extract highest value for their investors. With timely communications via monthly updates, quarterly webinar and other ad hoc communications I am always in the know of what’s happening at the ground level on every single project.
Thank you Neal, Anna and the entire Grocapitus team.
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.
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!
Neal does wonders with investor money. The ROI with Neal beats all my projects with other firms. Besides this key aspect, I want to share a few other things.
I met Neal in 2017, to purchase a single family house owned by Neal. Neal was selling it to focus on his syndication journey. Unfortunately, I had to withdraw the contract. Neal graciously returned the deposit, which could have been kept by contract. At that moment, I knew Neal is a big hearted person!
Neal told me he has an offshore administration team. To me, that was a novel idea for a start-up real estate firm back then. When I started working with the team in 2018 for the Park Canyon project, I found Neal’s team to be superb. They are responsive, provide quality work, and the operational flow is seamless.
Neal not only deploys many advanced technologies, concepts, methods to identify opportunities, but also manages each project with unbeatable efficiency. He has a great team, and I have been working with the same team today as I started four years ago, so I think Neal really takes care of his people.
Bottom line – Neal is a disruption force in his field, he has everything down to a science. He fuses the best practice of both technology and business, into his workflow. And he always seeks the truth. If you are with Neal, you are on the fastest train!
I’ve been extremely happy about the Park Canyon project. Neal, Anna and the Grocapitus team were truly professional and diligent during the entire time. They stayed on top of everything, never missed one single monthly / quarterly update (which is really amazing!). They went extra miles to ensure that the investors get the best possible return. For example, before selling the project, they even redesigned the Offering Memorandum pages by the broker to make it look more attractive to potential buyers.
The team also has the rare ability to identify unique, unusual opportunities for further improvements. Park Canyon by itself was already a great value-add project, but they were able to see the unique opportunity to rebuild the Phoenix building (on the site of a previously burnt down building) and the tremendous value it could bring. This move allowed the project to deliver an outsized return that greatly exceeded my expectations for a value-add.
I consider myself very lucky to be in this project. Big thank you to Neal, Anna and the Grocapitus team!
I always wanted to get involved in real estate investing, but never wanted the headaches that can be associated with being a landlord. I also knew that I lacked the knowledge needed to make informed investment decisions.
Fortunately, a friend told me about Neal, Anna and the Grocapitus team. I was impressed with the ease of onboarding, detailed due diligence of opportunities to aid decision making, and great communication via monthly project updates.
I was so impressed with their organization that in the last 2 1/2 years, I have invested in a total of seven projects. Our first project together, Greenfill Storage Depot, recently had an early exit that far exceeded our expected return! A true home run! Thank you Grocapitus!
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.
Neal and his team are awesome! I’ve invested in 8 projects with him and after 3 years we’ve already sold three. 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.
I invested in Grocapitus’ project because I liked their data driven approach to analysis and conservative underwriting. So far results have been delightful as the project has outperformed the projections and continues to perform well even during the coronavirus crisis. I also appreciate the fact that Grocapitus is easily available and they make it a point to communicate personally to address any questions I might have.
I have several investments with Neal Bawa through Grocapitus. I trust that his underwriting is conservative and accurate. He is very knowledgeable about market conditions and is happy to share his research. During the course of the investments Neal and Anna are both very responsive and prompt in answering questions.
Their reporting is consistent, timely, and provides an honest portrayal of how the property is doing. The returns I have received on my investments have been very close to proforma projections, even in these very difficult pandemic times. I would definitely invest with Grocapitus again in the future.
What impresses me about Grocapitus is their quality research on every aspect of the market, their excellent communications and updates to investors, and their ability to add value to every property they touch.
I also appreciate their personal care about their investors and that they are accessible to discuss investments and concerns in a prompt manner. I highly recommend them for real estate investment.
One of our investments with Neal had an exit with better than projected returns (during uncertain times with the pandemic)!!
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!
