Here's What People Are Saying About Charles Dobens & The Owner Forum Program:
When we decided to scale our RE biz from single family buy and holds to owning and operating apartments, we were fortunate to be referred to Multi family Atty Charles Dobens and his Investing Academy. His on line library is a wealth of “insider” information, and his direct-mentoring approach is very much appreciated.

The greatest value I get from being a member of the Owner Forum is immediate feedback and support that I have not received from any other coach out there. In developing this business, like any other, time is money and you need to make decisions in a timely fashion. Waiting a week to hear back from your coach (like in other programs out there) will cost you on many levels. Charlie prides himself in fully supporting his clients and goes beyond to remove any barriers to his clients' success.

My former 9 -5 emphasis was Financial Consulting, Insurance, and entrepreneurial projects such as starting new companies. About 2.5 years ago, I determined that commercial real estate investing/ownership (and particularly Multi-family investing/ownership) was the niche for me. After evaluating a number of sources, I determined that Charles was the type of instructor and mentor that fit my needs. I have worked with Charles for approximately six (6) months. His training and attention have propelled me and I am well on my way to meeting my goals within the next three years (1000 units). His knowledge is excellent and his delivery and availability are great. Like anything you may want to succeed in, Charles teaches that concentrated effort, learning the business, and a great attitude are imperative.

I had some real estate experience as I had accumulated a small portfolio of single family properties. Having made the decision to go into multifamily, I quickly realized I had a lot to learn. Everything’s different than in the SFR world. Charlie and the MFIA have held my hand through the different processes involved in multifamily and I feel incredible more confident today than when I started. From how to search for deals, to analyze potential deals, to making offers to go into contract and to manage the properties, all these steps have complications but Charlie and the MFIA have been with me at every one of these steps and have made them easier for me. In addition, Charlie has an incredible community of student/investors who are willing to share their knowledge and help each other. That is extremely valuable for me. I look forward to continuing to work with Charlie and his group for many years going forward.
