The Secret to Living Your Perfect Day


by Ellis Hammond

purchased over 6,000 multifamily units and raised mil- lions of dollars from investors. But what I learned after spending two days with them is that their success is replicable. Just a few conversations with them unlocked answers to questions I didn’t know and brought about new insights I didn’t even know to be looking for. This is the power of a strategic connection. After sharing my insights with them at this event, we discussed how we could take this same principal of “one connection” and give that to others. This inspired us to host our own “one connection” event later this year in Houston, Texas, for multifamily opera- tors across the country. This one-day mastermind event will provide the opportunity for 30 men and women to net- work with one another and more experienced investors like Robert, Jorge, and myself. I am grateful for Think Realty and the opportunity they provided me to “show up.” I hope this story will inspire you to schedule and budget time and money in your cal- endar this year to “show up!” Your perfect day is counting on it! • Ellis Hammond manages a private network of investors seeking passive investment opportunities in multifamily syndications across the United States.

It would be so much easier if we just had a roadmap or a manual that showed or taught us how to get there. Unfortunately, life doesn’t come with a manual. How- ever, I have realized the next best thing to accelerate anyone’s path is strategic relationships. Recently, I attended the Think Realty Conference in Houston, Texas. I was asked to speak at this event, but the real reason I was excited to attend was the other great speakers I was sharing the stage with. As an early entrepreneur, there are still so many unan- swered questions I have about how to grow and scale my business and real estate portfolio. Having the chance to rub shoulders with those who have already accomplished what I want to accomplish, gets me that much closer to my perfect day! While there, I met Robert Martinez of Rockstar Capital and Jorge Abreu of Elevate Capital. Their success in the multifamily industry is inspiring. Collectively, they have
