Even More Examples Of What Is Possible

Here Are Even More Examples Of Students Implementing The Strategies

Students Taking Action !!

Capstone 6: Student Collaboration 

"This is fantastic!! A group of 6 students, taking action and, using the teachings of the course, got together and made an offer on a duplex plus a fourplex that they planned to tear down, change zoning & density and get ready to construct an apartment building on. BUT THEN they got the fourplex next door under contract too AND then bought another fourplex right beside that. When done they will be able to exchange all that for a 17 STORY TOWER!! How is that for the value of networking and the value of building a community? These are just ordinary investors. You can do this! UPDATE! These students raised the money (through an Exempt Market Dealer) to purchase all four buildings and cover fees & carrying costs. As of July 2023, they received unanimous approval from city council to build a 24 STORY TOWER (even more than they originally asked for). They now have the entire project on the market for $7 MILLION DOLLARS!!"

Tara E. 

"We started a new video series 'Students Taking Action' to highlight those students who have bought that old house to tear down and are going through the process with the city to begin working on their preferred Micro-Strategy. UPDATE! Tara has 3 or 4 projects on the go (including a new construction project) and is just doing amazing."

Inna H.

"Another 'Students Taking Action' video. Inna has purchased a property and is looking to construct a mixed use commercial / residential building. Inna credits the course for giving her the confidence to start this project. UPDATE! Inna just announced her second big project, a 2 parcel lot assembly that will allow her to build a 50 unit apartment building! QUOTE: Thank you, Darcy!!! Could not have done it without you, so I'm very, very grateful!!"

Amy, Imelda, and Sahil

"This community is really starting to come together now as the students are networking and investing together. Here is another 'Students Taking Action' video. Three of our students have purchased an old house and the plan is to knock it down and build an 8-unit apartment. How exciting is that?! UPDATE! Design of the 8-Plex have been completed and permits applied for. PLUS This group has recently purchased their SECOND old home to knock down with plans to build another 8-Plex!!"

Ashifa J.

"The next guest in our video series - Students Taking Action - is Ashifa. Ashifa is very close to being ready to start construction. She is just waiting for final Development Permit and Bank financing approval. Her plan is to knock down an old house, build an 8-Plex and then keep it as a rental. If this is what you are looking for too, then let's let Ashifa lead us through the steps she has taken to get this project close to reality. UPDATE! Financing has been finalized (with help from two other students), the old building has been knocked down and construction of the new 8-Plex is well underway!! PLUS Ashifa just took possession of a 186 Acre site for future development! QUOTE! It was Darcy Marler’s webinar that first inspired me to get into land development, and then the course and his mentorship gave me confidence! Thank you, Darcy!”"

Bennet S.

"This time we are heading to Florida in our video series - Students Taking Action. Bennet is our guest today. What's cool about Bennet is that he is merging what we teach in the course with his background in commercial R.E. and making his journey uniquely his own. Let's hear his story. UPDATE! Bennet just finished construction and sale of a building custom made for a doctor's office"

Benoit S. 

"Are you looking to grow your Real Estate portfolio by building new rentals? Our next guest in our video series - Students Taking Action - is Benoit. Benoit has a good sized apartment portfolio, but wanted to build new. He wanted to be creative and feel the pride of a finished project. Let's hear his story. UPDATE! He has bought land and intends to build a 70-unit apartment building!"

Dan H. 

Let's meet Dan, the next guest in our video series - Students Taking Action. He has taken methodical steps to grow his Real Estate Investments, from single family home rentals, to adding basement suites, to building new garden houses in the back, to now knocking down that old house and custom building 3 or 4 unit rentals. Dan now has a repeatable system in place, which is where most of us hope to be. Let's hear his story. UPDATE! Dan has close to 2 dozen new properties at various stages of design and construction and has branched into renovating other investors properties! 

Vlad M. 

Let's meet Vlad. Vlad came into the course with some experience with, not only renovations, but also a couple of construction projects. However, he was looking to scale. He wanted to learn how to construct larger buildings and get more value out of land. Let's talk to Vlad and see how he is now getting into larger projects. UPDATE! Vlad recently closed on an old school that, not only will he renovate to allow for 12 residential units, but with the excess land he will build several new townhouses!

Sylvie L.

Sylvie, her husband Andre and a couple of their friends are investing together and achieving some remarkable results. They are in the process of doing a large land assembly that could potentially see them build a very large apartment complex.  

The Perez Property Sisters - Theresa & Sugar.

Theresa and Sugar are two high energy go getters that have purchased an old 12 unit apartment, ready for tear down, and are working to change the zoning and density that will allow the construction of an ten storey, 130 unit apartment building. How amazing is that? Let's go behind the scenes and see how they are doing this.

Curtis A. 

As a teacher you always wonder if students are paying attention. Curtis. Was. Paying. Attention!! He has done several of my Micro-strategies including land flipping, land assembly, lot preparation, lot severance and infill development, which means that he has taken projects all the way to the finished construction of new homes. In addition, he has taken 'In and Out Quick' to an art. Love it! 

Student Testimonials !!

Bartek M. 

"The course demystified the process of Land Development for us. To the point where my wife and I have purchased a tear-down property, and we plan to build Highest and Best Use there. Without Darcy's course we would never have had the confidence to do that. So I highly, highly, highly recommend the course. UPDATE: Bartek has submitted plans to build a 15 unit property on the site."

Ali N. 

"It's a fantastic course. Darcy is a wealth of knowledge and he is so generous with sharing his knowledge. He gives you a ton of golden nuggets, tips and tricks that will save you a lot of time, money and headache. UPDATE! Ali recently quit his job and is now a full time investor. He has several projects in the works."

John L.

 John's a student of the course and is TAKING ACTION. Moving from Buy & Hold Rentals to RAW LAND DEVELOPMENT with 13 acres of Land & potentially 200 new doors! As John says, 'It is time to Upgrade." How cool is that??

Chad & Katie

 "I've really enjoyed your program and we have found a few parcels that we want to move forward on and see if the zoning can be changed. I’ve sent out 2 letters and a personal email to 3 different landowners for pieces that I think I can work with. Our Fingers are crossed, and I know we will get our first deal soon enough! 

The next step for me is to join the Facebook group and then put together a summary of one of our target properties for you to review / discuss on the bi-weekly calls.

PLEASE KNOW THAT YOU ADD TREMENDOUS VALUE to those that are wanting to learn this industry."

 Frank & Tina

“We just want to express our gratitude for your precious experience and knowledge in your course, books, and YouTube. 

Thank you for your inspiration on LD & NC investment, and I just pay my respect to you, which you deserve. You're amazing!”

Mukul S.

"Darcy - I just wanted to let you know that I absolutely LOVE the content in the course. You did an amazing job! I am so happy to be part of your course."

 Quentin D.

"Thank you for the course. I really enjoyed it and learned a lot.  There isn't very many courses on this topic around. So, I appreciate you putting it together and all of the great content that was available on the course. I highly recommend that people take this course. UPDATE: You may know Quentin, he is one of the largest owner / operators of apartment buildings in Ontario. He took the course because a lot of his buildings have excess land that he would like to develop."  

Shelley V.

"The material is easy to implement right away. Instead of looking at potential properties from a flipping or renovation perspective, I am now able to look at them from a development perspective. If you are looking for a really great foundational course on Land Development, I would highly recommend Darcy's course."

Lesley M. 

“If Land Development is something you are thinking of doing, I would highly recommend taking Darcy’s Land Development Course. As a new Real Estate Investor, this course gave me so much information, was incredibly helpful, and provided me with a private Facebook group with like minded people who are interested in doing Land Development.

As a result, I am now in the middle of a Land Development deal with several other students that I met through Darcy’s course. 

The great thing is Darcy’s available if you ever have questions. He runs a Q&A every two weeks that you can join in on, ask questions, and meet other people who are doing the exact same thing. Surrounding yourself with people doing the same thing is tremendous.”

Chris P

"Your course is fantastic! This course was very comprehensive. As someone who was looking to become well versed in this area, I can say that this course met and exceeded my expectations.  I have yet to find another course as detailed as this on this topic.  Darcy brings real world examples to the table and presents facts based on experience. He provides a great blend of methodology and experience.   It’s not easy to find training where the theory is supported by real world examples with context.  The lists provided to go from A-to-Z on a project are excellent.  Thanks Darcy!"  

Loaei H.

"Your personal view and approach to real estate is unique and untraditional. You formulate simple and easy systems to help with the decision-making process in real estate. (for example, I love your expression 'out with the old and in with the new'). Also and most importantly, the checklists you have created. I really appreciate it. "

Trent S. 

"It's a privilege to be in your class, Darcy. The  extreme value add from your slide deck is worth more than I could express."

Elizabeth A. 

"I just wanted you to know that I have started with the course, and I am extremely impressed. This is what I have been looking for!!! Right from the introduction, I can tell that I will gain the required knowledge needed to begin undertaking land development projects. It is structured like an actual academic program, and I just love it! I am so happy I enrolled in your course. I cannot wait to consume all the material."

Kazi H. 

"Simply put, it has met over and above my expectations of a) gaining valuable knowledge on the course topics & materials, b) having regular Facebook/Zoom Sessions and c) personally answering our concerns and issues. I would recommend this to anyone who are looking to better understand the land development processes, projects, investment strategies, and getting the value for their money’s worth of valuable advice directly from you, Darcy! Much appreciated your coaching style and active engagement with us.”

Ryan T.

 “I think your course was great, and I like that you keep adding to it as you develop new content. I am a very happy student and appreciate you taking the time to put it all together.”

Dave S.

 “Thanks for your insight, knowledge, and patience. I’m looking forward to keeping in touch with you as I have learned a ton of things from you, and I thoroughly enjoy talking (and listening) to like minded individuals who just might have the answer to some difficult problems."

Things are great, the future looks bright, perhaps even brighter when I can find an opportunity that becomes available with my new eyes that have been created by following your course.”
