How to Break Into TRUE
Commercial Real Estate
with Tom Berry

OPHP: 1-hour elective [What’s This?]

        Every month, we scour the country looking for the real-life investors who’ve successfully done what YOU want to do, and we bring them to you in the comfort of your own home, to share their best peer-to-peer advice about how to follow their path to financial freedom.

        Because we’re real estate investors, too, we know that high prices and interest rates have led a lot of our colleagues to look for more-profitable, less-competitive alternatives to buying houses and apartments…

        And that one of those alternatives is COMMERCIAL investments, like office space, storage facilities, retail space…

        So we’ve rounded up the guy we know who made the transition from houses to commercial properties, and cajoled him into sharing how you can do that, too.

        Here’s the whole agenda:

6:30-7:00 p.m. eastern
National Haves and Wants Meeting

        Meet your fellow travelers on the path to financial independence, offer  deals you have for sale, ask for funding you need, request and offer referrals and advice, and more

7:15-8:45 p.m. eastern
How to Break Into Commercial Real Estate
with Tom Berry

        Tom Berry has a heck of a comeback story: after the 2007 meltdown destroyed his financial services business, he jumped into residential real estate, then went big FAST by transitioning to commercial investments.

        Since then, he’s followed the market, finding where the most undervalued commercial assets are, buying the bargains, and moving on when that asset class gets too “frothy”.

        He’s going to share how YOU can break into commercial real estate investments, even if you’re a ‘little guy’ (or gal) like he was when he started.

        He’ll share:

  • What TRUE commercial real estate is (hint: no one lives there), and the ways in which it’s better than residential properties 
  • How commercial properties are analyzed and valued: it’s WAY different than houses
  • How people get the money it takes to buy most commercial assets; it’s a LOT, but there are creative and institutional ways to raise it
  • How commercial deals are FOUND (your usual methods are probably a waste of time)
  • The things that you should absolutely do before you dip your toe into a new asset class


        Get your link to attend this meeting below; members and first-time attendees are free, but if you’ve attended before, there’s a guest fee of $35* that’s still WELL worth it for this experienced information.


*Ok, wait, if you’ve attended before then you KNOW that we have the best topics, experts, and community in the country, and you should just join and become a part of it, because membership is only $247 a year or $25 a month, and it includes 19 other educational and deal-making meetings a month. Maybe you want to do that HERE before you pay $35 to come to this one meeting…
