Show Notes

“Making mistakes is OK as long as you don't make the same ones over and over, and the best mistakes to learn from are somebody else's.”

Shawn Griffith is a great guy with some great experience. He started 11 years ago as a passive investor and took the plunge as a DFW syndicator and developer 2 years ago. Go give him a follow on LinkedIn at

Shawn has transitioned into Real Estate Investing from an awesome career spanning manufacturing to IT. He and Teri founded TWT Multifamily to acquire and manage multifamily properties. Shawn's experiences as a problem solver are a huge asset in Real Estate Investing. 

Teri and Shawn Griffith are accredited investors, based in Denton, TX. They focus on multi-family properties in the southern U.S. with an emphasis on Texas. They invest both passively and actively in multifamily real estate and are currently invested in over 3000 units and have exited over 500 units full cycle. They have close 3 deals (303 units valued at $30M) and are looking for more!

In 2021, they joined the Brad Sumrok Personal Mentoring Group and Master Mind to enable them to learn how to serve their investors better, fine-tune their skills and grow with those more experienced.

Fun Fact:
He is very experienced in different industries! He started right out of high school and went to the US Navy, got out of the Navy and went to Texas Instruments, then went to work for Southwest Airlines.

He likes to play with computers, databases and fun stuff like that, which other people cringe at, but are totally awesome!

Great quotes from the episode include:

“Hey, if we're going to have the retirement that we want, then we're going to have to do something different, and for us, the answer was real estate syndication.”

“One of the things I've learned about being in multifamily or real estate, in general, is you can’t over plan or have too many Plan B. Plan C, Plan D, especially when you’re raising capital.”

“The most important thing is to get to know your sponsors, not just the person you know. If I don't know your partners, I'm not investing with you.”

“It takes a coordinated effort to make a property work.”

“If you shoot for the stars and you land on the moon, well, you know, you’ve accomplished something.”

“Consistency is what's gonna keep you going.”
