​BOOK SUMMARY

​Mastering the Art of Commercial Real Estate Investing:
how to successfully build wealth and grow passive income


by Doug Marshall, CCIM


Real estate investing is currently giving the best and fastest return on investment (ROI). For those who understand the market, it can easily become an income replacement or an additional passive income stream.

“Real estate investing gives you an opportunity for financial freedom that owning stocks and other types of investment cannot.” (p. ​13)
“Once your real estate investments generate enough cash flow to maintain your lifestyle, you could live to be one hundred and twenty years old and still have no worries about running out of money in your lifetime.” (p. 13)

While real estate investing takes years to learn, Doug Marshall shares his 35+ years of experience in an easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide to fast-track your journey into this life-changing, wealth-growing industry.

“The goal is not to buy commercial real estate at fair market value but to purchase with a margin of safety because property performance, market conditions, and the like may not live up to expectations.” (p. ​20)
“The best time to buy commercial real estate is when you have a vision to improve a property that the current owner does not see.” (p. 19)

In Mastering the Art of Commercial Real Estate Investing, Marshall explains how to add to or even replace your current income by sharing:

  • Why rental properties are a sound investment
  • The best type of loan for optimizing cash flow
  • Property management tips to instantly reduce risks and increase profits
  • When to buy, and when NOT to buy
  • And so much more!

Published by Morgan James and set for release December 2018, Mastering the Art of Commercial Real Estate Investing teaches people how to find the financial freedom roadmap through commercial real estate investing.

AUTHOR BIO

Doug Marshall, CCIM

​After nearly four decades in the commercial real estate business—including financing, property management, and as an investor—Doug Marshall is sharing his seasoned expertise to help others discover the secret to Mastering the Art of Commercial Real Estate Investing: How to Successfully Build Wealth and Grow Passive Income From Your Rental Properties.

“I wrote this book to be of service to those who are either getting started or have modest experience in commercial real estate investing,” said Marshall. “A wise man once said, ‘Learning without execution is useless.’ I hope people use this book to find the roadmap to financial freedom through real estate investing.”

He founded Marshall Commercial Funding, Inc., a commercial mortgage brokerage firm located in Portland, Oregon in 2003. Marshall helps clients secure the best possible financing for their rental properties but is most proud when client’s return for help with their next financing need.

“What a lot of new investors don’t realize, is that the lowest rate may not always be their best option,” said Marshall. “I help clients look at the big picture: how to optimize a property’s cash-on-cash return while staying within the borrower’s lending parameters for down payment, prepayment penalty and other important criteria.”

For the last decade, Marshall has become an investor in nine commercial real estate properties valued at over $50 million around the Portland, Oregon-area.

An Oregon native, Marshall earned his MBA at the University of Oregon.

​In 1999, Marshall received the prestigious CCIM designation, which many consider the PhD of commercial real estate. A Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) is a recognized expert in the disciplines of commercial and investment real estate. Today almost 70 percent of designees hold the title of owner, partner, principal, or president, representing an exclusive worldwide referral network of thirteen thousand members in thirty countries. CCIMs must be proficient in the areas of investment analysis, market analysis, user decision analysis, and financial analysis for commercial real estate. Of the more than 150,000 commercial real estate professionals in the United States, only an estimated 7 percent hold the CCIM designation.

For thirty-eight years, Doug has been married to Carol. Doug and Carol are the founders of The Jesus Table, a weekly gathering for those in need of a hot meal and friendly conversation. They are also board members of Fairhaven Recovery Homes, a Christian-based ministry that provides transitional housing for alcoholics and drug addicts who are in recovery.
