Ep #190:

The Little Known Secret to Legally Defer Your Capital Gains from Real Estate and Preserving Your Wealth via the Deferred Sales Trust 
– with Brett Swarts

Our mission is to help you generate cash flow and build legacy wealth through commercial real estate investing.

“Rule #1 – Never lose money. Rule #2 – Don’t forget rule number 1.”
~Warren Buffett

At Sunrise, we work hard for our money, and we know you do too. Capital protection is key to building legacy wealth. Instead of swinging for the fences with risk, we focus on recession-resistant asset classes that can perform in both good and bad economies.

We invest in niche market segments that are currently out of favor, inefficient, and in which there is less competition. We currently see opportunities in mobile home parks and parking assets. Our strategy for parking assets is similar to our mobile home park strategy in that we buy, improve, and hold assets to help you generate cash flow & legacy wealth.
Real wealth doesn’t happen overnight by taking an outsized risk in an effort to generate lofty returns. Real wealth grows over time through efficient management of capital, buying rights, and investing for the long term. These are the guiding principles for our team, and this philosophy helps us build legacy wealth alongside you and your family.
