Our job is to put systems in place that make it easy for us to bring in team members that can execute at the high standard we expect. This allows us to create repeatable wins in the business on a daily basis
We believe in investing in markets that provide our investors with protection of capital via acquisition prices that provide strong cash flow from day 1. Through following out systems and adding value we can force the appreciation on these assets to provide outsized returns.
We always seek to find investment opportunities that offer value-add opportunities. This allows us to force the appreciation of the properties and provide additional value to our customers and investors.
We focus on investing into markets that offer strong cash flow to investors. Not only does this make for a sound long term investment, it protects from downside risk.
Value-add B and C class multifamily real estate in stable mid-west sub-markets offers investors a consistent opportunity to achieve cash flow and strong returns.
We focus on identifying properties that have below-market rents, lack branding/marketing, and are simply not managed to a high level. These factors provide us the ability to purchase the asset and immediately get to work on increasing the net operating income of the property and therefore its underlying value.
JFH has shifted its focus to building its portfolio with the help of investment partners to be able to tackle larger projects which are uniquely able to achieve efficiencies through improved economies of scale.
Joel began investing in early 2015. His first property was a small 4 unit which he lived in and remodeled himself while pursuing a corporate career as a program manager for a systems integrator working with US Navy and USCG.
Over the next 30 months, Joel continued to expand his personal portfolio to 31 units which helped him transition from part-time to a full-time investor. During this time he moved south from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to Michigan City Indiana where he now calls home.
In 2019 JFH Capital purchased a townhome portfolio in Chesterton Indiana with its investment partners and is actively looking for its next investment opportunity. In 2020 Joel expanded his personal portfolio with a 26 unit acquisition bringing the total unit count to 72 units under management.
Joel is happily married and has two young girls. The family enjoys spending time at the beautiful beaches in Michigan City, skiing in the winter, and spending lots of time outdoors whether the activity is hiking, camping or sailing.
Apart from getting hands-on with all aspects of real estate investing Joel loves networking with others and talking about the power of financial independence.
