1. What state are you looking to purchase in?
2. If you feel your funding is solid and have an idea for what you want to buy, then your next step is making friends with the Commercial Brokers in the areas you're interested in. A good broker with have connections to architects, contractors, (In Texas I legally cannot suggest an attorney) and the like.
Don't use residential agents who "dabble" it'll just waste your time (or worse). Find an agent who specializes in commercial sales.
Thanks for the feedback. We are looking in Breckenridge, Colorado and fortunately I have been in contact with a very reputable broker in the area. I will inquire about other services needed when I speak with him. Thanks again!
@Paul Rosenbeck Well done on your successes. The fact that you understand what accredited and sophisticated investors are is a step ahead of most aspiring syndicators. I would however strongly recommend joining a mentoring program that will help you pull "all the bits and pieces" together. I am in Brad Sumrok's program and the "eco-system" that Brad facilitates is amazing! From attorneys (including Gene Trowbridge who I met this last weekend), due diligence engineers, GC's, 3rd party management companies, lenders, and "all the bits and pieces" you need for a successful syndication - not to mention the great broker contacts for sourcing deals! You can absolutely syndicate without a mentor and without being in a "sophisticated" group but I assure you that you will get things done a lot faster and smoother if you are. Let me know you want any further info. * this is of course if you are interested in multifamily "commercial" (apartments), which is what I assumed after reading your initial post
