Now Is The Time

To Invest

In Real Estate


Our mission is to create a community of like-minded investors and people from all areas of Real Estate to come together to connect, support and encourage each other in a friendly environment. Whether you are a seasoned investor or just starting out and getting ready to make your first deal we want all experience levels to feel welcome. 


We encourage members to ask questions and seek advice or share recent deals and accomplishments and inspire others to do the same. We want to discuss the everyday ins and outs of being a landlord ( the good and the challenging), finding deals, connecting with local tradesmen, staying up to date on local laws and codes as well as staying current on the city of Syracuse and exciting growth and development news. 


We will be having a monthly meeting at the Second Chance Diner with a keynote speaker. Each meeting will be sponsored by a local business and refreshments will be provided. The meeting will also be streamed live for our out of town investors. A timeline for each meeting will be posted on the website as well as social media. There are no fees associated with being a member. 


Who We Are

Frank Procopio

I primarily practice buy/hold investing but, also do a handful of multifamily flips a year. Currently own over 50 units and am in the process of growing my portfolio. My current focus with my portfolio is on single family homes within the city of Syracuse.  I prefer to purchase distressed properties and rehab them. For my day job I am Real Estate Broker and the owner of Procopio Real Estate. I represent clients from all over the world with various real estate interests in central New York. I have specialized in investment property as well as management for over 15 years. I often have access to off market properties due to my ties within the local market. Real Estate is my passion and I love discussing it.

Kata Walters

I’m Kata Walters also known on YouTube as “ The Model Investor”. 

I am a model in New York by day and Real estate investor 24/7! I started investing back in 2016 so, I am definitely the least experienced of the team but it hasn’t stopped me charging ahead to make up for it! I currently own 9 properties for a total of 13 units which includes a mixed use commercial building. I am focused on growing my portfolio of buy and hold rentals but looking to rehab and BRRRR more properties in 2020, as well as scale up into larger commercial properties. I am from New Zealand but have lived in the US 10 years. My mission is to help as many people as possible (especially those out of state, other women like myself or overseas investors) and inspire others to invest in Central New York. If I can make it happen anyone can! Real estate is my passion and I can’t wait to connect with all of you !
