Why Multi-Family Homes?

Duplexes and Small Multi-Family are uniquely powerful investments, we'd love to grab coffee to share what's possible.

1
Approachable

Multi family homes like duplexes and triplexes are accessible to more people because if you are an owner occupant, you can buy them with traditional financing.

2
Owner Occupancy

Owner occupancy is when you live in one side and rent out the other. There are a number of different benefits to this, such as using traditional mortgages, having your mortgage paid for, and experiencing financial and lifestyle freedom.

3
Low Complexity

Being a landlord for a couple of units in a duplex, triplex or fourplex is much less complex than managing an apartment building or larger investments.

Scott & Drew Hoefler

Co-Founders of Side by Side

Our interest in real estate started as young boys in Chicago. We remember taking walks through our southside neighborhood with our Dad as he pointed out various building styles and architectural details. We purchased our first duplex in 2013, living on one side, and renting the other side out.  

We were hooked.

Since then, we've built a small portfolio of rental properties, and that passive income has led us to financial freedom. We've experienced the power of real estate investing first hand, and our purpose is to help other people experience lifestyle and financial freedom with real estate, as well. No matter where you're at, contact us to see how we can help you get started in real estate.

My life and real estate intersected in 2014 when I got hooked on the idea of buying a duplex for my husband and I to live in while we made plans to travel. At that time I would have never guessed that one small decision would turn into a life-changing career path. Fast forward a few years, after learning from amazing mentors, buying a fourplex and getting my real estate license, I met Scott and Drew for coffee. As it turns out we all had a love for helping other people achieve financial freedom and be able to choose the life they want. Always remember, it’s never too late to get started!

The heart behind the work is what made a difference.

The heart behind the work is what made a difference for my husband and I. Since they are skilled property owners, they had invaluable insight and advice throughout the process. After purchasing our first income property, they went further to make sure we felt prepped by sending us resources for landlords AFTER our closing. Their personalities make the whole process fun, real, and a true learning experience. We will definitely work with them again when the time comes to purchase our next property.

Couldn't ask for a better team.

Couldn't ask for a better team. I was happy to work with them when buying our duplex. We, as many do, had a few issues with the seller and house after the sale, but Side By Side was able to remedy the repairs and keep our first house buying experience extremely positive. Love them!

They are the real deal.

They are the real deal. We just closed on our first duplex and they were invaluable all along the way. They are passionate about real estate investing, and have the knowledge, resources, and network to help new and seasoned investors close deals. I highly recommend their team.

The process couldn't have gone better!

I just closed on my first duplex with the help of Side by Side Realty and the process couldn't have gone better! They did a great job of walking me through everything I needed to know about the properties we looked at. I wouldn't have found my current duplex without them. They've been a great resource for me and I look forward to working with them again when I'm ready for my next property.

James

They provided so much value to us as buyers!

The entire Side By Side team was incredible to work with. We entered the buying process wanting to learn more about investing in multi-family housing while searching for our first home. The team walked with us through the entire process from start to finish and we truly couldn't have done it without them! They provided so much value to us as buyers and we are excited to keep working with Side By Side in the future!
