EP 89: Underwriting over 250 Deals to Close 3 Multifamily Buildings with Nerissa DeMilia

Just the thought of underwriting 250 deals might make an investor’s head spin! However, this is how Nerissa has been able to successfully grow her apartment building syndication business and close 3 apartment building complexes recently!  On today’s episode, we chat with Nerissa about the mistakes (and learned lessons) from her first deal, why it is a MUST to source money and deals simultaneously, what she has learned as a results of underwriting so many deals, and the EXACT criteria she uses that causes her to make an offer on an apartment building!

Nerissa is a partner of The Capital 8 Group. They purchase value add apartment complexes in growing cities in the US. During the comprehensive due diligence process, Nerissa assesses the viability of the investment, identifying weaknesses and strengths and underwrites the property to ensure that it fits the conservative Capital 8 Group, LLC business model. Nerissa has worked in the finance industry starting at John Hancock Financial Services and Merrill Lynch on Wall Street. Nerissa was then a Senior Associate in Operations at GlopeOp Financial Services in Hartford, CT with her clients being multiple hedge funds from around the World. Nerissa then transitioned into real estate overseeing twelve apartment complexes located in 5 States; totaling over one thousand units. This expertise and background has granted Nerissa the knowledge and experience to successfully run apartment deals with The Capital 8 Group, LLC. Nerissa currently resides in Connecticut with her husband and their family nearby.
