Greg Namrow

Operations Officer

Greg transitioned off active service as an Infantry Officer in the USMC and into the Reserves in the fall of 2016, while starting a career in corporate America. He rapidly developed an entrepreneurial itch and began to educate himself on how to generate residual income while receiving his MBA from American University’s Kogod School of Business and then an MA in Leadership and Education Studies from the University of San Diego.

Six months ago, Buddy challenged us with our WHY. WHY are we doing WFI?  WHY are we doing the things we do?  Every single lesson over six months he challenged us to be our best. Follow our dreams. Build our future… My family is excited about our future again. WFI sparked new dreams. I personally am excited about new opportunities that I didn’t know existed 6 months ago.

Robert Haines, USAFA ‘90 / REI Accelerator Graduate

The Accelerator course is a great series of lectures for military couples to secure their financial futures and provide long lasting value to their family. Buddy and Greg really help you accomplish your goals and keep you on track. Highly recommended for the new real estate entrepreneur.

Jason Fung, USAFA / REI Accelerator Graduate

Learning how to do a Macro/Micro and what information to look for is extremely valuable and I wish I learned it a lot sooner. I know I will be a beast of an investor and achieve my end goals.

Earl Biglow, USNA ‘05 / REI Accelerator Graduate

Buddy Rushing is an Absolute rock star.

Travis Krug, USMA ‘01 / REI Accelerator Graduate

I purchased a home out-of-state, site unseen, inside a self-directed Roth IRA. A great deal of potential risk in all of those steps, however, we were guided through by White Feather Investments, OCG Properties, and uDirect Services. We found all three extremely competent and dedicated to the success of the investor, whether first-time or long-time.

Eric Gardner, USNA ’85 / REI Accelerator Graduate, 18-2 / WFI Mastermind Member

WFI team, thank you so much for helping us find the perfect property for our real estate portfolio in Little Rock. You were always there for us when we had questions which was very comforting as out-of-area investors. I highly recommend WFI for any veterans looking to achieve their dreams and chart their path to financial freedom.

Shawn Ikpa, USNA ’05 / REI Accelerator Graduate, 18-2

We had a great experience purchasing a property through White Feather Investments. We currently live overseas and the entire process was seamless. We will definitely use White Feather for our future real estate investments.

If you are considering converting your IRA to self-directed, do it!! Don’t wait, do it right now. I wish I had known about this so much earlier as I would love to be several years into purchasing properties under my SDIRA. The team at WFI were there every step of the way answering my questions and putting us in contact with turn-key providers and IRA custodians. I couldn’t be happier with the entire process and outcome.

A huge thanks to the Team at White Feather Investments, we just completed our first multi-family rental closing and everything went really well. White Feather made this first big leap into investing feel more like a simple step. I’m excited to begin my real estate journey with White Feather and honored to have their support along the way!

Tim O'Donnell, USNA '03 / REI Accelerator Graduate, 19-1

Overall this was a pretty seamless experience and smooth. From the beginning of dealing with White Feather, to being turned over to the Mortgage Lender, and dealing with the seller/property management company, all parties kept checking in regularly to ensure the process ran smoothly. Overall great experience.

Matt Berry, USAFA '06 / REI Accelerator Graduate, 19-1

I hated real estate and I feared the details until working with WFI. WFI and their network of associated experts that made the process straightforward ad common sense. It was all an education and a great start to developing a real estate investment portfolio. Semper Fidelis

Alec Carrier, USMA '14 / REI Accelerator Graduate, 19-1 & Rookie of the Year

I worked with an agent to find a deal on my own but I could never move fast enough (or offer enough) to get a deal. WFI presented me with multiple cashflowing deals and let me choose the one that met my criteria. They then held the deal for me until a contract was signed. The icing on the cake was when the tenant backed out prior to moving in during the closing process. WFI offered to pay the rent until another tenant was found. I’ve discovered the jackpot path to financial freedom!

Stephen Bump, USAFA '08 / REI Accelerator Graduate, 19-1

We really appreciate that WFI offers the turnkey option–it was just what we needed to invest in our first property with confidence. We know we got a solid property that will provide cash flow. Thank you Buddy and Greg for your support and guidance throughout, we wouldn’t have done this with another group. Great people, easy to work with and always willing to help when we had questions. From initial offer to close in 5 weeks!

Rich Flake, USAFA '92 / REI Accelerator Graduate, 20-1

This was as easy a process for our first investment property as we could have hoped. White Feather provided a checklist to gather our documentation which was very helpful. Everyone we worked with was pleasant and very professional. Things moved very quickly, communication was great and we are thrilled with the property manager that WFI linked us up with. This was the first step for my family and we couldn’t be happier with the result!

Ed Just, USMA '95 / REI Accelerator Graduate, 20-1

The WFI REI Accelerator was 100% successful against my objectives for the class. Over the six months, I was able to move up a steep learning curve from a low awareness of real estate investing to a level of knowledge on which I can comfortably pursue real estate deals on my own. I highly recommend the course for anyone interested in learning how to invest in real estate and taking steps towards creating financial freedom for themselves and their family.

Kelly Mayer, USNA '85 / REI Accelerator Graduate, 20-1

I truly appreciated the course and learned a lot…I am more confident that I am on the right path and have a lot of knowledge to chart the right course!

Sam Escobar (USMA '01 / REI Accelerator Graduate, 20-1)

I am very thankful I had the opportunity to work with White Feather for my first turnkey deal. I was faced with a tough situation getting three potentially deal ending appraisals and White Feather helped me push forward to close. When my appraisal came in 15k short of the purchase price, they helped me tremendously so that I wouldn’t have to pay the entire difference myself. Very excited to buy my next property with this group.

Taylor Wing, USMA '18 / REI Accelerator Rookie of the Year, 20-1 / WFI Mastermind Member

Easy to work with. Great financing options. Overall a great experience!

Tim Farmer, USMA '93 / REI Accelerator Graduate, 20-1

There is no easier way to see the process of buying rental properties than through the WFI turnkey program. It is the sippy cup before the big boy/big girl cup!

Dale Busic, USMA '85 / REI Accelerator Graduate, 20-2

I would take it (Real Estate Investing Accelerator) again and I am recommending it to my friends! The key here for us is the mind shift and the network. This course helped us identify what we are good at and provided us with opportunities to find others to compliment us, thus providing velocity to our investments. This network is the best thing to ever happen to us! And we aren’t blowing smoke up your ass Greg!

Dan Magnotta, USNA '08 / REI Accelerator Graduate, 20-2

Thank you for putting this course together! Just the course itself saved me a lot of money. Prior to joining the course I was shopping around for RE courses and I am glad I found this one! You have done a great job putting it together and making it action oriented! The course was on point and it has the right balance between concepts and action. It does not inundate you with a lot of theory. The homework is an awesome tool to get to you to practice and while you are at it, make a real offer based on your findings and analysis. Buddy and Greg’s wit and sense of humor made the course even more enjoyable and fun to learn! Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience, you have armed me with the necessary knowledge to get back in the game and play it well! I am truly going to miss the Saturday calls.

Gabriel Elvir, USMA '98 / REI Accelerator Graduate, 20-2

The White Feather turn-key experience was a great experience for a new RE investor. Buddy, Greg and their team are there at every step to guide and assist in the process from initial property profile to Closing. Entire process brought to life the action steps discussed in the Accelerator course and gets you a taste of STR ownership. Wash, rinse, repeat…

Josh Weed, USAFA '01 / REI Accelerator Graduate, 20-2 / WFI Mastermind Member

This was my third deal through the WFI team. Greg and Buddy are very responsive and helpful in making the purchase process smooth and answering all of my questions along the way.

Tarek Elmasry, USNA '02 / REI Accelerator Graduate, 19-1

White Feather Investments provided a great service, finding a sweet fourplex rental property with lots of potential and the support needed from within their great network. It was a pleasure to work with WFI and I would not be able to have had this opportunity to take a big leap towards financial freedom in this way without them!

Neal Paulus, USMA '07 / REI Accelerator Graduate

It was a smooth process and a great deal!!

LeDon Brooks, USAFA '01 / REI Accelerator Graduate

The REI Accelerator has opened my eyes to the true
possibility of financial freedom. Prior to this, I had ZERO real estate
investing experience. It was something fun to talk about with
friends, but
that’s all it was for me. I was on the traditional (and boring)
retirement
plan path. This course has provided me the foundational
knowledge and tools
I needed to chart a different path to make my goals a reality sooner. I
have already taken down my first deal thanks to Buddy (and Greg) and this
course. But, by far, the most valuable part of the course is the
network of
amazing and like minded people that I am now connected to and will most
likely be working with down the road on future deals. This has
been a game
changer for me.

Grant Philipson, USAFA '06

It’s a great course to get a foundational
understanding of real estate investing that sets the stage for growth and
networking with an awesome network of people!

Ryan McKilligan, USAFA '13

Amy and I both knew there was more to real estate
investing than just LTR of single family homes, but we didn’t
know how much
more. After taking the WFI Real Estate Investing Accelerator course, we
feel armed with the initial knowledge to confidently ask the right
questions about any particular real estate investment strategy
or know who
to contact in order to get the information needed to make an accurate and
informed decision.

Derrick Dudash, USNA '98

This course taught me so much more than just real
estate investing. It opened my eyes to a new world of wealth
management and
provided concrete strategies and resources to think differently and
actually set a path for financial freedom.

Christian Espinosa, USAFA '93

I really enjoyed the course. It grew my knowledge in
so many areas, gave me access to resources I never would have found on my
own, and helped me build a network of incredibly smart like minded
individuals that I trust.

Chad Rubin, USAFA '10

This was an exceptional course that in all
likelihood has changed the trajectory of financial life.
Financial freedom
is now not a matter of ‘if’ but ‘when’.

Bobby Bray, USNA '91

Great fast paced course that prepares you with the
tools to chart your own course and a lifetime network to rely on for help
along the journey.

Jeff Laird, USNA '06

I had high expectations for this course based on how White Feather presented it, and to be honest, I also had high skepticism. After six months of some intense real estate education heavily weighted in action and self-learning, I can candidly say that this course has changed my life – just as Buddy said it would. To me, the value of this course is the mindset shift and the collection of classmates that I inherently trust and have similar real estate aspirations as I do.

Danny Cho, USMA '05

An inch-deep and a mile-wide! Fantastic exposure to all types of real-estate deals and enough information and support to take action, this course helped me choose my own path to start this journey, and low and behold, I am working on deals in 3 different classes as I leave the course with 3 pieces of property under my belt with hopefully 5-7 by the end of the first year.

Michael Michaud, USMA '00

Best investment course I have ever attended-great information, great people, great motivation to take action and build personal and generational wealth through real estate!

Bruce Shaver, USMC

My White Feather opportunity came at a serendipitous time in my life when I had recently become a stay at home Mom who had already walked away from the corporate life and knew I didn’t want to go back. White Feather did more for me than I expected going into it because I knew I’d learn about REI, (which I already had an interest in) but I didn’t expect to gain so much confidence, such good friends and so much extra knowledge/connections to help us with the major foundational pieces in tax/legal.

Alicia Carlson, USNA '12

This was an exceptional course that in all
likelihood has changed the trajectory of financial life.

is now not a matter of ‘if’ but ‘when’.
