Ready to get into multifamily real estate investing but don’t know where to start?
Backroom Deals™ is your step-by-step blueprint to dramatically shortcut your path to PROFITING with multifamily real estate...the RIGHT WAY.
You don't have to spend a king's ransom
on some overpriced, over-hyped mentor
to get started in multifamily real estate investing
AND you don't have to struggle or waste valuable time and money to learn on your own like I did.
Believe me, I know all about those real estate “gurus” with their $30K coaching programs and their $50K boot camps that try to convince people that real estate is easy, passive and risk-less.
But if you’ve ever started on your own and tried it, you quickly learned those promises were lies...just like I did.
The fact is, people lose money on real estate all the time. Most commonly, new investors lose money by overpaying because they don’t know how to analyze markets and deals. If you just believe the gurus who tell you every deal is a good deal, it’s a recipe for failure every time.
You see, for nearly a decade I spent more time and money than I can count learning how to create a 6-figure+ income as a multifamily real estate investor.
I was a Wall Street lawyer, burnt out and desperate to leave my soul-sucking job...but when you have responsibilities to meet and a family to take care of like I did, quitting is never an option.
While I was struggling to build my own portfolio, I became more and more disillusioned with the information and mentoring that was available for new multifamily investors.
The more I learned on my own, the more I realized just how much those high priced mentors were holding back from their clients,
They were selling a dream. So while they were collecting hefty fees from their students and raking in profits, their students were left with little to show for their investments.
But I needed something real, and I was determined to get it.
So I kept on pushing and learning…
And taking action.
I was able to get my first deals without any guru holding my hand and bringing me into one of their deals, but I had to figure it all out on my own.
With what I learned, I used investor money to buy 404 apartments with $17,755,454 in just 11 months, and I sold those properties for $25.5 million dollars just a few years later.
For the past several years, I’ve been sharing that knowledge and teaching people just like you how to do it, too.
And I wanted to create an even easier path for new multifamily investors to get started the right way, so they could get off the ground quickly and be profitable faster.
I wanted to help even more people navigate the challenges I faced and avoid the mistakes I’d made when I was just starting out.
Really, there are no mysteries here. It’s all about knowing what the pros do, and then following those instructions faithfully.
Backroom Deals™ is all about giving you a pro-level play book without breaking the bank or making you waste a ton of time and money in the process so you can implement quickly and be profitable faster.
What's a "Backroom Deal" anyway?
It’s not as shady as it sounds in politics! Often called off market listings, pre-market properties, or pocket listings, these “backroom deals” are the premium real estate that only a select group of investors see first. Those investors get on the broker's speed dial because he knows the property types and investment markets those investors are looking for - and that those investors have the cash to close the deal.
Investors who have strong relationships with brokers are the ones who see deals like this first - and reap the benefits. And there are a lot of benefits, for sure.
Why Getting Into the Back Room Matters....
The very best investment opportunities all start in the broker's office...the back room.
When a new listing comes in, the broker offers that listing to a small group of insider clients that fit the deal. This lets the broker make the greatest return with the least effort in moving the property.
If no one buys from that insider list, the broker is forced to invest a lot more time, energy and money into marketing the property to a broader audience to make the sale and close the deal.
Premium listings rarely make it past that first round of phone calls, so it's critically important to be on that short list of investors the broker calls first.
Being on that short list gives you a keen advantage over other investors.
You'll face less competition for premium opportunities and quite frequently get better pricing - which means higher returns.
And who doesn't want that?
When you've got insider access, you'll have
- Buyer-to-property matched deals from brokers
- Less competition for premium opportunities
- Better pricing and higher return potential
- Best opportunities to close the deal
But You Might Be Making This Common Mistake...
If you're wondering why brokers won't show you their best opportunities...
It might be because you've been following some real estate guru’s advice about finding brokers online and contacting them by email or phone.
That approach is practically guaranteed to fail.
Inside of Backroom Deals™, I show you the exact technique I developed through trial and error to get brokers to show me their best deals right away, even when I was brand new.
It's the method I used to go from zero to 404 units in about 11 months...with investor money.
Best of all, it’s based on common-sense psychology and sound business principles that work in almost every business situation, not just with brokers.
It’s so straightforward, that when you learn it, you’ll kick yourself for not thinking of it yourself.
When you put these methods into practice, you'll see a dramatic increase in both the quantity and quality of your deal flow.
So, what's REALLY keeping you from seeing these deals?
Three BIG issues get in the way of many who want to get started with the BEST multifamily real estate deals.
Brokers, like other humans, always make their first call to people they TRUST. It's no different with the best investment opportunities! Building strong relationships with brokers takes time unless you first position yourself as a serious investor
Investors who have relationships with brokers are already on the broker's radar in terms of exactly what type of property they're looking for...so it's an easy proposition to be top of mind for a broker when your "type" of property comes along.
Show me the money isn't just a thing in an old movie! Brokers only get paid when deals close, so brokers have to believe you can close the deal...and if you don't have a proven track record, you'll never be on their speed dial when great deals come up
A top broker added me to his selective buyers list
I’ve tried my hand at multifamily investing. I couldn’t get past dealing with brokers. And yes, I have taken several courses. . . . I followed your instructions to a Tee . . . [and] a top broker . . . added me to his selective buyers list. Everything you said was correct.

Who Am I and Why Should You Listen to Me?
I’m Jonathan Twombly, a former Wall Street lawyer who’s been a multifamily real estate investor since 2011.
While building my own portfolio, I became disillusioned with the mentoring programs and information available to new multifamily investors. The more I learned on my own, the more I realized how lacking these sources are.
So I created Backroom Deals™ to help people start on the right foot in multifamily real estate...without breaking the bank. You don't have to start unprepared - and you don't have to guess or invest thousands to figure it out.
I wanted to create a better, more complete, and more affordable option for the new investors who came behind me. The kind of program I wished was available when I started out: the complete, no-bull/no-hype resource for the most serious up and coming multifamily investors.
