STUDIO CITY, CA - Berzack Investment Property Advisors a leading Southern California multifamily specialty group of Lee & Associates-LA North/Ventura, Inc. will host a complimentary, RSVP-required seminar featuring a panel of some of Los Angeles' biggest private apartment owners sharing the secrets to their success and taking audience questions.
This third annual seminar in the group's Multifamily Wealth Seminar series will take place Thursday, Feb. 5, 2014 from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. at Sportsmen’s Lodge Event Center, 4234 Coldwater Canyon Ave. in Studio City, CA. The evening includes a buffet dinner, and ample complimentary parking is available on site.
The event will offer a panel of large apartment owners, with over 2,500 units among them, revealing their biggest tricks of the trade and the stories behind how they made their millions. They will also take on direct audience questioning about the challenges of ownership today.
"This year we've created a unique opportunity for investors to peek behind the curtain and benefit from the hard-won wisdom of an exceptional group of top owners," said Warren Berzack, President of Berzack Investment Property Advisors and a principal of Lee & Associates. "These guys have dealt with anything and everything that comes up when you own a building—tenant problems, vendor matters, legal issues, government compliance, you name it. And we've chosen owners with varied tenant bases and geographical areas to provide the broadest spectrum of experience."
The night will additionally feature a special year-in-review market analysis and forecast, as well as talks on the latest in smart estate and tax planning by legal and financial experts.
"When it comes to planning, many owners procrastinate or understandably don't want to think about it, but I've seen too many families destroyed with infighting and millions of dollars lost to government taxation," said Berzack. "Our experts will help owners learn the importance of protecting their assets and how to do it the right way."
Likely topics for the evening will include: increasing a building's cash flow; avoiding and getting rid of bad tenants; delegating more effectively; dealing with partners better; growing one's portfolio successfully; and creating a sound estate and tax plan.
In addition to Berzack, the owners panel includes: Danny Monempour, Tim Sauer and Andy Goldman. The other speakers will be: Selwyn Gerber, Founding Partner of Gerber & Co CPAs; Marc Stern, a Partner with Greenberg Glusker; and Stephen Geiger, a Principal with Lee & Associates-LA North/Ventura, Inc.
Last year's seminar drew over 150 investors, and the annual seminar series has been deemed by past attendees a "can't-miss event" for multifamily investors.
"We believe that providing this seminar each year is an important service, and we are committed to continuing to bring local multifamily owners the most valuable and cutting-edge resources," said Berzack. "Especially with being an avid owner and property manager myself, I've seen firsthand the challenges and pitfalls inherent in ownership, and the need for investors to be better informed and equipped. That's part of what makes Berzack Advisors different: our service doesn't stop at the completion of a transaction, or even at just our clients. We genuinely care about the bigger picture, helping owners to maximize their investments' wealth and security."
Seating is limited and RSVP’s are required by Jan. 22 to 818.933.0331 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Attendees may submit Q&A questions for the owners panel with their RSVPs.
