Chihiro Kurokawa started out in multifamily investing the way most people do – ON HIS OWN. For a year he pounded the pavement looking for opportunities and analyzing properties without ever closing his first deal. Chihiro now realizes he went about it the wrong way.
“What I didn’t know at the time is, you REALLY CAN’T do it on your own. Even if you had many millions in cash, you’d still need a team!”
A team AND MORE Chihiro found in Think Multifamily and mentor, Mark Kenney (TMF Founder).
Think Multifamily is an apartment investing group which provides 3 major services: Coaching, Training & Investing Opportunities. TMF members, like Chihiro, benefit from a built-in team of investors and industry professionals, as well as one-on-one coaching and essential tools that prepare them to conquer the multifamily game. Think Multifamily is rapidly building a reputation for being relentless and results-oriented, not to mention instrumental to the success of their members.
TMF founders, Mark and Tamiel Kenney, are dedicated to maintaining a current company statistic, that nearly 90% of their members end up closing a new deal within 6 months, a STONE-COLD FACT.
Chihiro has no doubts Think Multifamily will continue to thrive, and he opens up about when he knew he had found the Right Group to help him thrive too:
“Being around people who’ve done what you want to do is extremely motivational,” says Kurokawa. “Seeing somebody like me who was able to take down a 100+ unit property proved to me that I could do the same.”
But Kurokawa explains there’s much more to Think Multifamily, beyond the initial motivational high, as he states how TMF gave him ALL the tools he needed to close his first deal:
“There was SO much that I didn’t know, but one big thing is I didn’t know how to underwrite deals properly. Even if you’re a “numbers person,” somebody still needs to teach you what assumptions you should use. You also wouldn’t know about market dynamics and how an expense might be different from one metro to another.”
That’s where the group rallies around its members and, for the first time, Chihiro found himself within range of tons of ANSWERS, instead of tons of questions and challenges. One particularly valuable solution is Think Multifamily’s annual Deal Analysis Workshop. In this 2-day class, led by TMF founder, Mark Kenney, students learn how to analyze deals by examining real case studies. with access to Mark’s Detailed Deal Analyzer. Just 7 months after making the decision to join Think Multifamily, Chihiro was under contract for his own apartment building,
Kurokawa is crystal clear when he discusses his future and commitment to continue to grow his investments with Think Multifamily…
“I really appreciate having a mentor who focuses on the long term as opposed to being transactional. He’s in the deal with us as opposed to collecting fees regardless of deal performance. Lastly, he’s extremely open and transparent.”
Think Multifamily is equally excited about their future with Chihiro and the rest of the group and they hold nothing back about their plans to keep acquiring, helping others and growing TOGETHER.
