“Small Apartment Investors” goal is to help people successfully buy and manage apartments that are 5-50 units.  We do this by following this formula for success, in exact order:

Mindset +Skill set + Performance = Results.


Everyone involved with Small Apartment Investors has the same goal of getting enough income from their properties that cover their living expenses.  With the need not to work anymore for someone else.  Some may want to continue to work and get the income for retirement, some may want to own small apartments for tax write offs, some may want to provide for generational wealth, some to fund their kids college tuition, some may want to travel….the list is endless.  

What will owning a portfolio of small apartments give you?  Why do you want that?

“The meaning you attach to something produces the emotion of your life and your emotion is your life.” — Tony Robbins

Although the main goal of Small Apartment Investors is to make money, but making money is not  all it is about.

Here are some things to think about concerning about money. Money will buy:

  • A house but not a home
  • Food but not an appetite
  • Knowledge but not wisdom.
  • A bed but not sleep
  • Medicine but not health
  • Companions but not friends

To reach your financial goals, knowledge is required.  Knowledge in understanding what to do, and how to do it. That knowledge followed with action will then set you up for success.  Here is a little story to explain it better.

A giant ship engine failed. The ship’s owners tried one expert after another, but none of them could figure but how to fix the engine.

Then they brought in an old man who had been fixing ships since he was a young.

He carried a large bag of tools with him, and when he arrived, he immediately went to work. He inspected the engine very
carefully, top to bottom.

Two of the ship’s owners were there, watching this man, hoping he would know what to do.

After looking things over, the old man reached into his bag and pulled out a small hammer. He gently tapped something.

Instantly, the engine lurched into life. He carefully put his hammer away. The engine was fixed!

A week later, the owners received a bill from the old man for ten thousand dollars.

“What?” the owners exclaimed. “He hardly did anything!”

So they wrote the old man a note saying, “Please send us an itemized bill.”

The man sent a bill that read:

Tapping with a hammer…… …… ……… $ 2.00

Knowing where to tap……… …… ……… $ 9,998.00

Morale of the story, Effort is important, but knowing where to make an effort makes all the difference!  Knowledge is
power.  Guess what, the wealthy know where to tap!
