WS1900 How to Grow Your Investor Base | Highlights Devin Elder

Welcome back to another episode of your daily real estate syndication show. I’m your host, Whitney Sewell, and today we had the pleasure of catching up with Devin Elder, a respected figure in the real estate space. It’s been a couple of years since our last conversation, and there’s a lot to catch up on.

Devin shared an overview of his business, DJE, which has a significant presence in the Texas real estate market, primarily focusing on multifamily properties. Despite the challenges posed by the current economic climate, DJE has been actively pursuing acquisitions, including a 300-unit deal closing this week. Devin emphasized the importance of finding good basis deals and adapting to the high-interest-rate environment.

We discussed the necessity of being creative in times when traditional multifamily deals are scarce. Devin highlighted their pivot into land deals, which has proven to be a lucrative and enjoyable venture. By subdividing larger tracts of land and offering them to a different buyer pool, they’ve been able to maintain deal flow and provide investors with consistent opportunities.

Devin also touched on the structure of these land deals, explaining that they are set up as 506B debt offerings, allowing investors to earn a fixed return. This approach has been beneficial for both the company and the investors, offering flexibility and a variety of investment options.

The conversation also covered the importance of building and maintaining investor relationships, with referrals being the primary source of new investors. Devin shared insights into their marketing strategies and the value of having regular conversations with potential investors.

Lastly, we delved into DJE’s debt fund, which provides additional flexibility for the company to execute deals across various asset classes. Devin outlined the fund’s structure and the goal of keeping it sufficiently deployed to meet investor expectations.
