Thank you for replying!

I am from Northern New Jersey. I just closed on a 2 family house and I’m liking the adventure of starting a Syndication business/Private Fund business but I don’t know how to get started.

What would be your tips on getting started with Syndication and Private Funds? Do I need to go through the SEC? Just kind of need to know the basics with these 2 businesses?

 You can learn a lot of the high level basics from real estate syndication-specific content. Whitney Sewell hosts a podcast on the topic. Peter Harris has quite a few videos on YouTube. Before hiring someone to walk you through it, you can save time and money by leveraging that free content or relatively inexpensive books on the topic of syndication.

Hey @Adam Bielous . I was curious about syndications for years, and I finally joined a syndication coaching program with 37th parallel. “The real estate guys” have one also, and I’m sure others do as well. If you’re serious, I can’t think of a better path and getting a great coach who might one day partner with you as well. Good luck!

There are a lot of syndication mentoring groups for those wanting to be sponsors. For starters, you may want to attend a long weekend syndication meeting like Brad Sumrok's or The Real Estate Guys Radio's Secrets to Successful Syndication Seminar before paying someone thousands of dollars to mentor you. I went to both and realized that with my full-time job that I don't have time to be an active syndicator. But it opened my eyes to the passive syndication investing world.

Here is a short list of mentoring programs for budding syndicators (I have not gone through them so I can't give you an opinion either way):
Brad Sumrok
Lifestyles Unlimited
Jake and Gino Wheelbarrow Profits
Think Multifamily
Michael Blank
The Real Estate Guys
Joe Fairless

Hey @Adam Bielous ! Thanks for making this post. I'm sure most investors here would agree that real estate (especially multifamily) is a relationship-business. So, I commend you for taking the step to connect with others in this space. 

I'm part of a syndication group that's constantly doing deals. 

If you have any questions, or if you just want to hop on a call and connect, PM me! I'd love to see how I can bring you value.
