My name is Elijah Upchurch.
I'm a student in my last year at Texas A&M University, and as you can see by my subject line, my current mission is to fight and scrap my way into the multifamily industry from the start. I'm looking to offer my time and labor to veteran MF investors in return for experience. My current strength and key focus is on deal analysis. Send me a deal and I want to run the numbers over and over again in order to weed out my errors and tighten my accuracy. I would then love to play as big of a role as possible in pushing the acquisition to closure, then repeating the process. I don't mind making calls and having meetings in order to get any information that I need. If possible, I would like to get some hands on experience in financial structuring and raising capital on the equity side as well.
Within the next 5 years, my goal is to have a major hand in managing aqusitions for a primary or even subsidiary account of MF properties under the management of a RE fund. Then, within the following 5 years, (now at year 10) I hope to begin building multiple syndications and eventually a FUND! (Sorry for yelling, I just get excited talking about this stuff!)
Throughout these 10 years, I would also love to begin building my own portfolio, hopefully by starting with a partnership (let me prove what I know by analyzing potential deals and pushing them to closure as said above), and then by heading an entire acquisition from pre-entry to exit.
I'm really excited to connect and speak with you all! Please, let me know what you guys think. It's hard to really explain yourself in one forum post, so I hope I didn't overdo it.
If you think I sound crazy and over ambitious, then I would like to thank you for the compliment as I have worked extremely hard over the past 2 years to make myself that way. If you would like to know more about me, I have created a real estate related Instagram account where I plan on documenting my entire process, and to hopefully bring a little value (either now or in the future) to those in the same position as I am. The Instagram account is called "Broke and Growing".
I appreciate you guys taking the time to get to know me a little better. My contact information is in my Bio on my profile. Please, feel free to reach out!
You've got great goals Elijah, all the best on your RE journey.
Welcome to BP and good luck on your project in College Station. Let me know if I can be of any help on your fantastic journey.
Great introduction. Continue with that dedication and determination, while never set a glass ceiling, and you will crush every single one of those goals.
Howdy! What degree will you be graduating with? If you can find an entry level position with a commercial broker or someone like RealPage or Pinnacle I think that could set you up for a great lifetime in real estate. Good luck!
