TYPES AND CLASSES OF U.S. MULTIFAMILY INVESTMENT OPPORTUNTIES

CORE: Stabilized real estate. Typically new assets in top quality locations. Tend to be the lowest yielding, institutional quality assets.

CORE PLUS: Similar to core, but with a small value
add component and/or less favorable location to the investment. Should trade with a slightly higher yield.

VALUE ADD: Most tend to be older assets requiring varying degrees of renovation, whether it be repairing deferred maintenance or upgrading the interiors to take advantage of raising rents, or mis-managed assets requiring repositioning.

OPPORTUNISTIC: Can be a more comprehensive value add with significant asset repositioning and higher risk. Can be new construction or redevelopment.

CLASS A: Generally a core asset. Newly constructed or fully renovated, which is well-located with high-end finishes and fixtures, and full spectrum of amenities.

CLASS B: Positioned somewhat lower than Class A.
Potentially a combination of any of the following factors: age, inferior location, limited amenities, deferred maintenance, basic fixtures and finishes. Generally a value add strategy of varying degree.

CLASS C: Inferior age and/or location with original/ outdated/low-end finishes and fixtures, and possible deferred maintenance and/or substandard management, possible value add or an opportunistic strategy.

U.S. MULTIFAMILY SECTOR OVERVIEW

SIZE OF THE MARKET
Multifamily* rental housing is a common form of housing in the U.S., especially in urban areas, with most of these assets renter-occupied. The multifamily sector includes 14.5 million units across the 62 largest metro markets in the U.S. (population > 1 million).

The portion of the multifamily sector that is of most interest to domestic and international investors is professionally managed rental communities with at least 150 units. The
National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC) estimates that the total value of U.S. multifamily rental properties is more than $3.3 trillion.

OWNERSHIP
Real Capital Analytics (RCA) divides commercial real estate owners into four major groups: institutional, public companies (predominantly publicly traded REITs), private buyers and international (all types of companies).

Private buyers own 68% of the multifamily market (based on value). These buyers include entities of all sizes, businesses and domestic and international capital partners, and high net-worth firms and developers, primarily focused on individual metros or regions within the U.S.

Institutional ownership of multifamily assets has been rising over the past few decades, and this trend is expected to continue. For example, 25 years ago, multifamily assets represented only 11% of the NCREIF Property Index; retail, office and industrial all had substantially higher market shares. Today the multifamily sector represents 24% of the total and is second only to office for total market value.
Institutional owners include investment managers, pension funds, equity funds, insurance companies and sovereign wealth funds (SWFs). The majority of multifamily assets in the U.S. are owned by domestic privately held companies. Currently only about 4% of multifamily holdings are owned by non-U.S. companies.

In the past few years, direct investment by offshore investors of all types (from large SWFs to high net-worth individuals) has averaged approximately 6% of the total. International investors are very active in the sector indirectly through investment funds, REIT stock purchases and equity investment in companies. **According to recent study by NMHC and MBA

Proposal in U.S. House of Representatives bill prevents use of IRA funds for real estate deals


The current bill that is being proposed by the House Ways and Means Committee has a proposal that limits how investors can invest their retirement savings. Investors will no longer be able to invest retirement funds in real estate deals and must remove existing capital from these deals.

[mc4wp_form id="1660"]

Section 138312 of the current bill states the following:

  • Prohibits an IRA from holding any security if that security requires the IRA owner to have a certain minimum level of assets or income (any deal or fund that requires investor accreditation).
  • If an IRA has invested in such securities, that IRA will be disqualified and the investor must pay taxes on that account.
  • The effective date is December 31, 2021 with a 2 year transition period for IRAs already holding such investments to dispose of the asset.

The impact of this bill is significant to our industry and our investors. Real estate sponsors will no longer be able to take IRA money from investors for real estate syndication deals or any type of debt securities.

Even more concerning, any IRA money that is currently held in these types of investments will need to be removed by the investor by December 31, 2023 to avoid their retirement accounts from becoming taxable. So if an investor has invested a portion of their IRA funds in our deal, those funds will need to be exited from the deal to avoid their complete IRA account from becoming taxable

In the last few years, investor desire to diversify their holdings beyond the stock market & into real estate has exploded. This has not gone unnoticed by the companies that make revenue with a constant flow of IRA funds directly to the stock market. Clearly, there are forces working behind the scenes to reverse this trend and Section 138312 is an example of this. 

What can you do:

  • Reach out to your elected officials in the US House of Representatives and the US Senate and tell them that you oppose Section 138312 and that it impacts your investments. 
  • Send an email about this proposed legislation to your other investors and educate them about this change and request they email their elected officials to oppose this legislation because it limits investor choice and diversification.
  • Let your friends and family know about this so they can also oppose this proposal.

Below is additional information on the proposed bill:

Sample text that you can provide your investors to write to their elected officials:

Dear {insert name of official},

As an investor, I am writing to you about my opposition to Section 138312 of the US House bill. This proposal has a direct impact on investor choice and limits my ability to diversify my retirement savings. By not allowing me to invest my retirement savings in private investments, you are requiring me to keep all of my IRA money in the public markets.

Additionally, by forcing me remove this capital from existing deals or lose my tax-free status, you will have a significant impact on my retirement savings. I ask that you oppose this proposal.

Thank you.

{investor name}


 

We must come together, act with urgency and push back on legislation that clearly is not in the best interest of our industry and our investors. We ask that you join us and get the word out to your professional network and your investors on this proposal and make our voices heard to our elected officials.

How Does Inflation Affect Us?


Many of you have asked me if I'm worried about inflation. Yes, I am, kind of.

[mc4wp_form id="1660"]

Here's the deal - when there's inflation you want to be invested in hard assets.  Quality hard assets - like gold.  They tend to weather the inflationary storm pretty well.  But they may not provide current cash flow - or you may need to sell when they're down.  That would be painful.  The catch is owning cash flowing hard assets that aren't over-leveraged.  They weather the storm and come out looking great!  That sounds a lot like Multifamily!  And there's a massive shortage in housing so we've got two things going for us.  If inflation kicks in, the cost of construction gets higher, which continues to put a lid on new development.

I'm more concerned about jobs and wage growth.  If wage growth can't keep up with rent growth, the affordability crisis, at some point, becomes a rent crisis.  I don't think we're there at a scale that would cause fundamental issues, but I would like to see some sustained wage growth in excess of inflation - and we really need to see the bulk of this growth at the lower to mid end of the scale.  These are our renters.  Chairman Powell, thankfully, has also stated this as one of his top goals.  And, of course, multifamily is driven by jobs so clearly we need the economy to continue to grow and thrive in general with positive job creation.  Based on past actions that the Fed and Congress have taken, I highly doubt they will do something to ruin this.  Bad tax policy, COULD, so we have to keep a close eye on that.  Businesses MUST continue to be incentivized to invest and grow!

With that backdrop, we continue to believe multifamily is a great investment.  Obviously the experience of your sponsor/operator is paramount, but the fundamentals continue to look solid.  Invest responsibly. Invest often.

The Importance of Time Value of Money


You’ve probably heard about the importance of time value of money.

But do you know what it really means?

[mc4wp_form id="1660"]

What Is The Time Value of Money?

The time value of money (TVM) is a useful concept that enables you to understand what money is worth in terms of, you guessed it, time. This is expressed in a formula which basically states that money is worth more NOW than it will be in the future. This is mainly due to inflation which increases prices over time and decreases your dollar’s spending power. Many of the financial decisions we make now and in the future involve the importance of time value of money. 

Examples include:

  • taking out a 15 vs 30 year mortgage
  • buying a car on credit (no thanks)
  • investing in stocks, mutual funds or bonds

Inflation Examples

Here’s a handful of examples of how inflation increase the price on everyday items.

First Class Stamp - Back in the mid-80’s, you could mail a letter for 22 cents. That same letter today will cost you 55 cents to mail thanks to inflation.

Ticket to a movie - If you wanted to go see a movie back in 1985 such as Back To The Future or Rambo: First Blood Part 2, you’d have to shell out $3.55 per ticket. That same ticket today is right around $13.00. If you throw in popcorn and coke then you may have to borrow money from your kids!

Honda Accord - One of the most popular cars in the ’80s was the Honda Accord. Back then the base price was $8,845. Today one can be yours for $24,770.

Human Nature

It seems like kids grasp the concept of the time value of money better than adults. Don’t believe me? Try asking one if they’d rather have $100 now or pay them 10% interest and give them $110 a year later. How many would wait? I’d guess close to zero. Heck, most adults wouldn’t either!

I think that many savvy investors are starting to grasp this concept and changing the way they invest. Instead of socking away money that will be locked up in a 401K for 30+ years, they are investing for cash flow that can replace their expenses now (accumulation model vs cash flow model).

Why?

Because they want options NOW and know that buying stuff is only going to become MORE expensive each year. They’d rather have that money now rather than later. 

Why Is the Time Value of Money Important?

Remember that Inflation increases prices over time so every dollar in your pocket today will buy MORE in the present than it will in the future. This makes investing even more important than most realize.

The TVM helps in that it allows you to make the best decision about how to handle your money based on:

  • inflation – Inflation causes the cost of goods and services to continue to rise. You can buy more with $100 now than in twenty years. Money you have today has a higher purchasing power.
  • risk – You understand that a lot can happen in the future. Due to unforeseen circumstances, you may not get all of your money, or any at all. But you can lower your risk to zero if you’re paid today.
  • investment opportunity – There are a lot of ways you can make your money grow today (real estate investing). But if you wait ten years to receive your money, you’re losing the opportunity to invest.

The Importance of Time Value of Money in Real Estate Investing

You didn’t think a real estate investing blog would leave out how the TVM could help them too now did you? Real estate investors can use this concept to help determine what future cash flow from a real estate investment would be worth in today’s dollars. It can also help to determine whether you’re better off using your cash now for something such as a rehab, or borrowing money and conserving cash for another purpose.

The Importance of Compounding Interest

Even though we now know that the TVM teaches us that money is worth MORE today than in the future so we should spend it now versus save it for later; we also know that sometimes that isn’t the case. While inflation works against you, eating away at the value of your money, compound interest works for you to raise the value of your present dollar tomorrow.

What Is Compound Interest?

Compound Interest is simply earning interest on interest. 

In other words, it works by calculating the interest on your entire account balance which also includes the interest that’s been accrued. Here’s a compound interest formula:

For example, if you have $1,000 and it earns 10% each year for five years,  in the first year you’ve earned $100 in interest (10% of $1,000).

In year #2, things start to pick up as you’re actually earning interest on the total amount from the previous compounding period, which would be $1,100 (the original $1,000 plus the $110 in interest earned in year one).

By the end of year two, you’d have earned $1,210 ($1,100 plus $110 in interest). If you keep going until the end of year five, the original $1,000 turns into $1,610.

The Time Value of Money Formula

Now that we’ve learned what the importance of the time value of money is, how then do we go about measuring it?

We do so by using a specific formula which takes the present value, multiplies it by compound interest for each payment period and factors in the time period when the payments are made.

Formula: PV = FV / (1+I)^N

  • PV: present value
  • FV: future value
  • R: rate of growth or interest rate
  • N: number of periods (typically measured in years or months)

Using the Time Value of Money Formula

 I get it. Who wants to use a complex formula? It’s essential  if you want to answer questions such as:

How much would I need to save beginning today if I want to become a millionaire in 20 years, assuming a 7% growth after inflation?

You could also use this formula to calculate anticipated future costs like college, purchase of a home, weddings, etc. 

If I start with with an account balance of zero today and put away $500 a month, what will I have in 10 years if I get a 6% growth after inflation?

This is a great way to see the direction you’re headed in.

Using this calculation with kids is a GREAT way to motivate them to focus on saving money at an early age.

Here’s an online calculator that you can use to speed up calculations.

Conclusion

Now you’ve come to realize the importance of the time value of money and that it tells us that money we have now doesn’t have the same value in the future. By knowing this, we’re able to make we’re able to set goals and make choices that affect our financial life.

Multifamily Market is on fire!!!


We were outbid again on a phenomenal asset in the Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) Area. It fits perfectly into our wheelhouse on every angle so we were prepared to push hard to get it.

[mc4wp_form id="1660"]

Our initial underwriting put us at $12MM - in line with the guidance we were receiving.  After some further research, we felt comfortable pushing to $12.2MM, maybe even $12.3MM if we had to.  Not bad to have a few $100K to play with if need be.  Our lender even mentioned we could still get 70% LTV at $12.5MM.  While our returns began to take a hit at that point, it settled out in the 8% COC and 13% IRR.  While that may seem a little low, you have to remember that we're talking a home run asset in a home run market so you're going to have to give a little with the expectation that the team and the market will allow you to outperform in the long run.  Long story short the word on the street says this deal went north of $15MM before the dust settled.  WOW!

With yet another crazy price in the books, we went to go back to double check our data.  Are we being too conservative, are we missing opportunities with too much of a rearview mirror?  We don't think so.  We think our pricing was spot on and takes into account the upside in the market.  On the flip side, I also don't think that 4-5% returns are market either (which is what the deal would have penciled at $15MM).

We’ve been tracking the market pretty closely the past few months given all the money that's flooded into our space and have made a couple interesting observations. 

First, beginning in March of this year, rental rates literally took off on a tear.  We've been seeing healthy rental rate increases across the board for the past decade, but something happened in March to really amp that trajectory significantly.  Traditionally leasing season gets underway in a serious manner around that time for southern states, but usually doesn't get it's stride until May or June up north.  However, this trajectory was pretty consistent across all of our markets regardless of geographic location - and it's not a small deviation, it's massive!

Second, the spreads and rates for debt have gone to yet another record low level.  Bridge debt, the more risky debt for value-add deals, which even a month ago was 4.5%, is now in the low 3% range.  Lenders are practically climbing over themselves to sign up multifamily debt.  While occupancy, rental rates, and collections continue to make new highs as the economy improves, we suppose it's not too hard to understand some of the enthusiasm.  This is interesting, though, considering we're about to, hopefully, see an expiration to the eviction moratorium and potentially millions of evictions from people who have chosen not to pay rent for the past months (or year).  Maybe the market has already priced in this potential downside?

In the DFW market, the average effective rent growth was 1.9% for the quarter.  Yes, that's the quarter, not the year.  While Class A and B took the lions share of that rent growth, that's still an amazing statistic.  Lease concessions drove much of that increase as properties phased out previous leasing concessions that were no longer needed as demand came roaring back.  We've seen the same in our properties as rental rates and collections reach all time highs.  With new construction moderated by the inflationary situation for raw materials, this continues to bode well for stabilized assets.

All this to say, it is somewhat understandable why some buyers are throwing caution to the wind just to get their hands on a deal - especially in Dallas.  And while it can be frustrating and the old FOMO (fear of missing out) can set in, we have to remind ourselves that this is a long game and these are times when it's easy to make mistakes.  We'll continue to push forward and do the best we can to adjust our expectations (within reason) to the current market conditions, but don't expect us to throw caution to the wind just to put another notch on the deal belt!

Why we like the Texas market


With COVID-19 cases continuing to fall and vaccination rates rising, things are beginning to feel a bit more normal. The economy is growing, and the outlook remains positive as the health crisis abates. Here’s a quick look at current conditions and our latest projections for business activity in Texas.

[mc4wp_form id="1660"]

Texas has recovered more than one million of the nearly 1.5 million jobs lost in March and April of last year due to the pandemic. The state added 13,000 jobs in April (on a seasonally-adjusted basis) as strong gains in a few industry groups, such as leisure and hospitality and professional and business services, were partly offset by losses in construction, manufacturing, mining and logging—which in Texas is essentially oil and gas activity—and several others. The state's unemployment rate has improved significantly, but is still above the national level. The bottom line is that while we're moving in the right direction overall, there are still a few bumps in the road.

One issue is worker shortages, which were already a significant problem before the pandemic. Competition for knowledge workers and other skilled occupations is intense, industries such as restaurants and hospitality are having difficulty coaxing employees back, and school and childcare challenges restrain the entry of many (particularly females). Supply chain challenges also remain. The pandemic disrupted the entire global manufacturing and distribution complex, and it is quite a process to restore the relatively smooth functioning that typically supports production processes. This situation results in both cost escalation and bottlenecks that inhibit or even interrupt activity.

Our most recent forecast indicates an estimated 1.6 million net new jobs are projected to be added to the Texas economy by 2025, representing a 2.39% annual rate of growth over the period. This expansion is somewhat front loaded, as the state continues to regain the activity lost during the downturn and returns to long-term patterns. Services industries will drive job gains, with wholesale and retail trade businesses also forecast to see notable hiring. Real gross project is projected to gain $424.4 billion over the next five years, and output in all major industry groups is forecast to expand, with the mining and services segments leading the way. In particular, the energy sector is expected to continue its strong comeback. 

I expect Texas to reach pre-pandemic employment levels in the next year or two. The state’s combination of natural resources, a large and growing population, and expansion in emerging industries position it well for expansion. While there are challenges ahead, such as providing the requisite education and training for future jobs and assuring the provision of essential infrastructure, Texas has the potential to remain a growth leader for the foreseeable future. Stay safe.

Return on Investments - Multifamily


In the world of real-estate syndicating, there are multiple metrics tossed around to help determine the return on potential investments.  The ones I want to focus on today are the ones we use:

  • Average Cash-on-Cash (CoC) Return
  • Total Return on Investment
  • Average Internal Rate of Return (IRR)

I will briefly mention why we use them, the pros and cons, and what to watch out for.

Subscribe to JCORE Newsletter & Blog

[mc4wp_form id="1660"]

We will start off with the Average Cash-on-Cash return. 

This is calculated by taking the cash distribution divided by the cash in the deal and averaging that out over each year of the deal. 

Example:  You invest $100K, receive an $8K distribution year 1, $9K year 2, and $10K year 3.  Your returns over the years would be 8%, 9%, and 10% respectively and the average Cash on Cash comes in at 9%.  Pretty straightforward especially for deals that do not have any refinance or return of capital events.  Now, if a deal does have a return of capital events then this can get a bit tricky and a bit mis-leading. 

Example:  Same scenario as before except at the end of year 3, beginning of year 4 there was a refinance event that returned 75% of your capital back to you.  The return for year 4 was $6K and for year 5 was $8K.  Because of the refinance event, you only have $25K left in the deal yielding a cash-on-cash return of 24% year 4 and 32% year 5, creating an overall average cash-on-cash return of 16.6%.  That’s a pretty great return but it definitely feels skewed a bit.  Any error in the projections (good or bad) could drastically increase or decrease the CoC return after the refinance which doesn’t make this the best metric to use necessarily all the time (i.e. a $2K miss is only a 2% cash-on-cash decrease before the refinance but an 8% decrease after). 

So what is ideal and what do you want to see? 

Ideally you want to see a fairly strong cash-on-cash early in the deal as this lowers the overall risk of the investment because unless projections are way off, that cash-on-cash should be more stable.  Note:  A low average cash-on-cash return with a high total return on investment and internal rate of return generally means most of the returns will come from the exit of the investment.  That means there is more risk in the investment as who knows what is going to happen between now and five, seven, even ten years down the road.  A good rule of thumb is you want a good amount of the total return to be from cash on cash as that means the investment has lower overall risk.

The next metric to discuss is the Total Return on Investment. 

This metric is simply telling you how much money you receive back during the life of the investment.  I.e. if you invested $50K and received $100K back your total return on investment would be 100%.  By itself, this metric isn’t very useful as it doesn’t give good insight on the risk of the investment nor what strategy is being used.  Combined with the IRR and CoC it allows you to determine if either of those are misleadingly due to a high return of capital event.  In a “straight” deal with no refinance event this will tell you the total return to expect after the set hold time but it does not account for time in the deal.  In other words, this metric may tell you your money will double but at a glance it won’t tell you if that will happen in 3 years or 10 years.

The final metric to discuss and is my personal favorite, the Average Internal Rate of Return. 

The average internal rate of return is shown as the interest yield as a percentage expected from an investment and helps us capture distributions throughout the years as well as the time value of money.  This is good because a distribution in year 1 is worth more than a distribution in year 5 of the same amount (due to the time value of money).  If we factor that into the equation it helps us make good comparisons for various opportunities.  See the examples below:

In these examples you can see that all investments have the same Total Return on Investment as well as Average Cash on Cash Return, however, they each have a different Average IRR.  You can clearly see the benefit to IRR from receiving cash earlier on in a deal vs later.  The sooner you get the money back the sooner you can put it back to work for you.

Inflation in Multifamily


For those of you who follows financial or political news, you may have seen a lot of recent chatter about inflation.  Most people view high inflation as a bad thing. Just look how the cost of a cup of coffee has increased over the years. It causes the cost of goods to go up making everyday life more expensive.  But how does it affect investments in apartment complexes?

[mc4wp_form id="1660"]

I personally see inflation as a good thing in our investment space.  The reason for this is the time value of money.  As you may know, money today is worth more than money tomorrow.  This is primarily because of inflation.  If we have 5% inflation in the cost of goods a year from now, you would require $1.05 a year from now to be equal to $1 today. In addition, because we generally go with a fixed interest rate, rising inflation only serves to benefit us.  Imagine a scenario where we are paying interest only on a loan of 3% and there is a 5% year-over-year inflation rate.  We essentially just profited on our loan because we came out ahead on loan rate vs interest rate.  This works because if I borrow a $1 from you today and owe you $1.03 a year from now, however due to inflation that money is worth $1.05 now, we just made $0.02.

Now, realistically that won’t happen because the Fed has indicated if inflation were to begin to take off, they would work hard to reel it back in, but, the higher inflation goes the narrower the gap becomes it and our interest rates which benefits us and our leveraged capital.

Faith Visualization and Belief in Attaining your Desire


We had discussed previously that DESIRE is the starting point of all achievement, but we must believe that our desire can lead us to something great!  Napoleon Hill wrote that FAITH is the head chemist of the mind, stating FAITH can be induced or created through affirmation or repeated instructions to the subconscious mind. Think about Olympic athletes and their constant visualization.  You can watch a ski racer, bobsledder or track star physically visualize attacking the course in front of them.  This is a discipline most of them developed over time through coaching and training.  Have you ever used this technique in your professional or even personal life to attain the desire that was within you?

The actor Jim Carey wrote himself a personal check in 1985 for $10 million which was dated 10 years in the future.  He actually received a role in the movie “Dumb and Dumber “in 1995 for a sum of $10 million dollars.  This is just another example showing that “FAITH Visualization and Belief in Attaining your desire” fits with anyone no matter what their field of interest is.

Below are some practical steps to take to Attain your Desire!

  1. Be specific with what you want to achieve!  Do you want $25,000 a month in passive income a month?  Do you want to have 1000 rental units?  Be specific!
  2. Decide what you’re willing to give in order to achieve your DESIRE!
  3. Give yourself an achievement date!  WRITE IT DOWN SOMEWHERE AND MAKE IT VISIBLE.
  4. Write out a plan and begin moving forward immediately.
  5. Read your plan to yourself at least twice a day and share it with someone you know that can help keeping you accountable!

Know that so many people have used Faith Visualization and Belief in Attaining your Desire before they ever reached the goals they set before them.  Develop your mindset and charge after your goals!

What in the world is Clubhouse?


If you have heard of the new App called Clubhouse and were wondering what the heck this thing is, you’re not alone.  Clubhouse is an application that was launched solely for iPhone users in April of 2020.  Since then, Android users have been able to download Clubhouse to see what this thing is all about.

Let’s keep it simple here.  Clubhouse is an app that creates live chat rooms for any subject you could possibly imagine. If you want to learn about and discuss real estate, there are rooms for that.  If you want to talk about God, sports, weed farms, or even politics, there are rooms you can hop into.  No matter what your interests are, you can join a room that has people from all over the world.

Clubhouse is still in the Beta stage so you can only join by being invited. Here is why it was created.

What is Clubhouse? Think of a live interactive podcast

Paul Davison, the co-founder of Clubhouse believes that the significance of Clubhouse is to share and discuss topics with each other through voice.  I have to say WOW, WHAT A CONCEPT!  Being able to hear tone and people for real outside of mute social posting is so awesome!

How Clubhouse works?

  • Download the app from the App Store (it’s free).
  • Be invited in by an existing user.  Our entire team are users so we can get you in!
  • Use the search icon to find people or topics you are interested in following.
  • You can build your profile if you want.  I would suggest this if you’re interested in connecting with people or groups.  You can also add your Instagram and Twitter for connecting outside of Clubhouse.
  • You can join a room just by tapping on the room banner and listen in.  You don’t have to say anything unless you want to, and you can come and go as you please.
  • There is no tracking of people unless you want to be known.
  • NO, it is not a service to message each other!  You can add your email in your profile if you want.

Why JCORE uses Clubhouse? 

We have a room that brings in successful real estate investors, lenders, and developers.  We share wisdom and knowledge with people who are interested in actively or passively investing in real estate.  Especially multi-family real estate.  The best part... It’s all free! You can join in from anywhere in the world!  If you have time, a desire to do more, and you can jump on in!

Join us on Clubhouse Wednesday nights at 8 PM EST, or Monday – Friday mornings at 9 AM EST (starting May 3rd).  Find our club THE JCORE PARTNERS and you’ll get notifications when we are on.

Just a bit of advice…  Go under tools and turn your notifications to “Normal”.  Otherwise, your phone will drive you crazy!  Just a learned lesson.
