In the great movie Moneyball, Billy, played by Brad Pitt, says he wants to bring back an aging ballplayer by the name of David Justice. Everybody thinks it is a terrible idea to bring him back. He can’t hit home runs anymore. They ask Billy why he wants Justice back. Billy points to Pete, played by Jonah Hill. And Pete says, “because he gets on base.”
Now that philosophy, “because he gets on base,” takes that suffering ballclub to a new record of 20 consecutive wins, and nearly to the World Series. Pete knew that games are won by getting on base, not by showing home runs. Home runs are rare, and the ones that hit those home runs tend to have pretty low batting averages. The game is won on base hits. And syndication is exactly the same way.
Getting things done is getting on base. It’s not about just going for the Grand Slam or hoping for that home run. The home run hitters are swell, but it’s not how you’re going to be truly successful at the syndication game. The way to success is just getting on base every single time.
How do we get on base? Well, there are five things that we need to do in order to be successful.
Five Keys to Get On Base
Every Day Work On Getting More Investors and Expanding Your Network
You’ve got to work diligently every day on attracting more investors and expanding your network to successfully syndicate real estate under regulation D. It’s not just about finding investors, but finding the right ones. You need accredited investors who are not only capable of investing but are also interested in the real estate market.
Boosting your network isn’t a one-time thing. It’s a continual process that can help you raise capital and increase your syndication deals. Attend real estate conferences, join investment groups, and leverage social media to connect with potential investors and collaborators.
Make yourself known in the industry, share your vision and invite others to join you on this journey. This is your path to becoming a successful syndicator. Remember, in this business, your network is your net worth.

Don’t underestimate the power of systems, checklists, outlines, and processes in your journey to master real estate syndication. You’re not alone in this journey; we’re all in this together, learning, growing, and striving for success. Rely on these tools to keep your work organized, streamlined, and efficient.
When you start a real estate syndication, a checklist serves as your blueprint, guiding you through each step. It helps you remember the critical elements of regulation D, ensuring you don’t miss any crucial steps.
Additionally, systems are your lifeline. They help you manage the complexities of real estate syndication, making sure everything runs smoothly.
Leverage People And Teams
Building a strong team and leveraging their skills can significantly boost your chances of closing a deal. You’re not expected to know everything or do everything alone. That’s where the strength of a team comes in. Surround yourself with people who are experts in areas where you’re not. This includes real estate attorneys, accountants, and experienced syndicators who know the ins and outs of Regulation D.
Remember, it’s not just about forming a team, it’s about fostering a sense of belonging. Make everyone feel like they’re part of the mission. Encourage open communication and collaboration. The more connected your team feels, the more they’ll be committed to the success of your syndication.
Leverage people and teams wisely, and you’ll be one step closer to a successful real estate syndication.
Just Do It
So the most important thing in syndication is the base hits, the daily work that gets done. It doesn’t need to be eight hours a day, but a little bit needs to be done every day, just to make sure you’re getting on base. First thing when you get up in the morning, ask yourself, “how am I going to get on base today?” And then, as you go to bed at night, say, “how did I get on base today?” This will propel you forward because it’s the incremental change that is going to make you truly successful in this business.
