Researching Apartment Investing

Acquisition Physician

Delivering results to our investors is at the core of every decision we make.

What makes Acquisition Physician different?

We know you want peace of mind when it comes to your investments and your family's financial future.

The problem is that underperforming mutual funds and stock market volatility make this impossible.  What's worse, investment volatility means an unnecessary rollercoaster of stress and anxiety. 

You deserve to enjoy the life and rewards that come along with diligently investing your hard-earned money.

That's why we created a unique firm with proven investment opportunities to help you secure a better financial future. 

Whether you're brand new to specialized investments like multifamily (apartments), or you're a seasoned investor looking for skilled operators, you're in the right place!


John Howard Acquisition Physician

Principle Investor

After a health challenge disrupted his medical career, John didn’t know what to do next but was reminded of this advice from Wayne Dyer: “When we begin to change the way we look at things, the things we look at begin to change.”  


John knew that the most successful people in the world all have one thing in common: they make decisions swiftly and decisively. And most of them also invest in themselves with coaching and training.     

They started researching and made quick real estate investing decisions — small rehabs and flips at first, leveraging to buy more and then larger multi-unit buildings. Soon they understood various markets & their profit potential. This quick but informed ramp-up allowed them to find great deals in specific regions across the country, spreading their risk profile.  

While very active in multifamily commercial real estate acquisitions (general partners in 682 units and passive investors in 1650 units), they also make time for their other passion – consulting for an equity stake in profitable businesses.

She has three beautiful daughters (with John) and as all of you moms know this is more than a full-time vocation with plenty of stress, worries, and work! 

Lanette with her second daughter Amanda, embarked on a new career in real estate. Lanette achieved REP's (Real Estate Professional status) and Amanda got her real estate license. Together they bought and rehabbed nearly 30 properties in six different states and were wildly successful at their endeavors.

“A mentor like no other” 

I owe a debt of gratitude for my start in real estate investing, and frankly I believe the legacy I am creating, to John as well. John and Lanette’s culture of an open, sharing & abundance mindset is nothing short of a rarity.


He graciously allowed me to co-invest on my first deal using sweat equity. I had a front row seat to a disciplined team with a sound investment strategy that confidently executed its business plan. Now I have several properties under my belt and I owe that to John, a mentor like no other.

I have been in the real estate industry for over 30 years and have worked with dozens of property owner-investors. I find John & Lanette and to be extremely refreshing.


From acquisition to disposition, everything they say they will do, they do, not only from my perspective, but from their investors and tenants' perspectives as well. They are my go-to clients when I find the right deals.
