Real Estate Investing

Our today's guest is Tim Wallen, CEO of MLG Capital, a private equity firm specializing in investing in small- and mid-cap private real estate investments. He loves to live the MLG concept of “Making A Difference While Making A Living”.

He has helped launch two successful non profits utilizing MLG’s facilities & staff and recently launched “MAD Funds” which allows investors to allocate profit from MLG Private Funds to help at risk youth. He’s also a board member of Lifesong for Orphans, which provides orphan care for over 6,000 children and financial assistance for adoptions.

  1. Thank you so much for the informative interview. Tim Wallen indicated that you need to invest enough money to overcome the burden of multistate tax filings. Taken into account the average fee from a CPA for multistate tax filing, what do you think would be the rough dollar amount you would have to invest in MLG capital’s fund in order to overcome the cost of multistate tax filings. $200k, 300k?
