Frank Rolfe has been an investor in mobile home parks for almost two decades, and has owned and operated hundreds of mobile home parks during that time. He is currently ranked, with his partner Dave Reynolds, as the 5th largest mobile home park owner in the U.S., with over 250 communities spread out over 25 states. But it all began with one mobile home park, Glenhaven, in Dallas, Texas. “When I bought Glenhaven, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing or how a mobile home park worked. If I had, I would have never bought that park, as it saddled me with a master-metered gas and electric system – two of the biggest challenges a mobile home park owner can face – and a tenant base that was straight out of COPs. We had carnival workers, hookers, the absolute dregs of society. It even had a wrestling ring in the back. A few years later, I had unbelievably turned that dump into a nice, quiet, family community, with a neighborhood feel and kids riding bicycles down the streets. Another five years later, the park was worth around $1 million more than I had paid for it.” With his success with Glenhaven, Frank continued to buy more mobile home parks, focusing on parks that had good locations, but were terribly managed.
Frank has always believed that mobile home parks are all about “affordable housing”. “Beginning with Glenhaven, I noticed that a mobile home park – when properly managed – offers a significantly better quality of life than a comparably priced apartment. Nobody likes to have neighbors banging on their walls and ceilings, or the lack of a yard or nearby parking – or just the lack of a neighborhood “feel”. It occurred to me that I could have my phone ringing off the hook if I could deliver an affordable detached dwelling with a yard that was safe, clean and respectable. That’s what I delivered at Glenhaven, and that’s what I’ve been doing ever since.”
Along the way, Frank has become the leader in this niche of commercial real estate. He and his partner Dave has trained hundreds of investors on how to properly buy and operate a mobile home park, 100% based on real-life experiences in the hundreds of parks they have owned and performed due diligence on. We welcome Frank for the first time to our Convention where he will teach about mobile home park investing in a way that can save you a lot of money and stress.

Scott Meyers will make a follow-up appearance to our Convention as he reveals more with our attendees regarding the hottest sector of commercial real estate over the past 25 years, that almost no one landlords are utilizing to add to their cash flow. Scott thinks outside the traditional cash flow box by investing in small commercial properties, self storage units. Scott has been teaching landlords and investors the real-world ins and outs of identifying, negotiating, buying, managing and building wealth in real estate without the hassles of tenants and toilets for over 15 years.
Scott became became a real estate millionaire amassing a portfolio of over 400 single family homes and apartments. However, he had very little cash flow to show for it. His goal of wanting to obtain true financial independence led him to dumping all his single-family homes, apartments, and office buildings and all his tenants and toilets. His life and the lives of his entire family tree changed when he started by investing in Small Commercial Properties. He now enjoys all the benefits of owning real estate without all the risks and hassles, the average landlords face as they deal with needy tenants and leaky toilets. At this year’s Convention, Scott continues his training of how to acquire properties in any area with no money down, the safe way, and how to manage from afar by implementing the multitude of new technologies available in this exploding sector of Commercial Real Estate.
