Zach and Grace left their respective sales careers and entered the world of Real Estate Investing with no prior experience or connections. They were on a mission to acquire large apartment assets and purchased their first property, a 36 unit apartment building in February of 2019. They began syndicating properties and grew their portfolio to $35M.

ZH Multifamily founded the original meeting group for Investors in Phoenix AZ, The Phoenix Multifamily Association (PMA). Over 200 people joined the group, and the events were held monthly (pre-covid) to provide networking and education regarding Apartment Investing. PMA is still an active group today and is still operated by Zach and Grace.
Zach and Grace enjoy educating people about financial freedom and hope to afford investors back their time to spend with family through acheiving passive cash flow.
