Recommended Real Estate Investing
Real estate investing is often the biggest wealth builder for doctors. While we are avid RE investors, we acknowledge the fact that many ODs are doctors first! Hence majority don’t want to manage their own rentals but desire a more active ROI compared to a simple Vanguard REIT fund. With that being said, we are extremely strict about who let on this recommended list; many of which require months of due diligence, interviews, meetings. As always, with any investments, please read all prospectus carefully and let us know how your experience are! Happy RE Investing!
Real Estate Syndicators (Apartment)
What is an apartment syndication? Quite simply, it's the pooling of collective capital from multiple investors for the purpose of acquiring apartment real estate that would otherwise be reserved to institutional investors. This allows smaller investors access to all the benefits without the work. In addition to cash flow and equity growth, apartment syndications have considerable tax benefits due to the power of accelerated depreciation. As limited partners, investors also are shielded from operation-associated liabilities.

- Note: Due to compliance regulations, an initial registration is required prior to REI offerings

Dr. Russ Beach, Co-founder
Russ started his own private optometry practice in Virginia Beach, VA in 2008. In 2013, he joined with partners to acquire Coastal Vision. Russ spearheaded the growth of Coastal Vision into one of the largest private optometric practices in Virginia with 4 locations.

Russ also has a strong passion for providing pro bono eye care and glasses to local homeless and underserved populations, and he makes charity work the biggest reason for his own financial growth. In 2021, he began the application process to create a non-profit foundation, called The Mathew 6:22 Project, which will provide free eye care to homeless and children in poverty in eastern Virginia.
10 Reasons For Optometrists to Invest in Apartment Syndications & 2 Reasons to Not Invest in Apartment Syndications
When we started New Sight Capital, we set out on a mission to share the unique opportunity of apartment investing with our fellow optometrists. The challenge: not many ODs have ever heard of apartment syndications. In short, an apartment syndication is the pooling of collective capital from investors in order to acquire an apartment complex that would normally be reserved to larger, institutional investors. Although syndications have been around for years, they’ve typically been an instrument of very wealthy or well-connected accredited investors. We are setting out to change that by bringing syndications directly to the optometric community.
