Sharing the Vision

Our future vision is in sight and we are on the road to achieve an extraordinary 2021! We will become a $1 Billion fund manager and lender.

Our 2021 Compass

The DLP Real Estate Compass includes our purpose and core values, and the annual theme, this year’s being Automation and Integration. Together all these allow us to form a vision for the upcoming year.

In 2021, DLP will acquire a bank, launch a private wealth management business, launch CEO Don Wenner’s book, Building an Elite Organization, launch the Elite Journal, and our proprietary technology, Elite Tools. DLP will launch a Prosperity Family Wealth Membership, scale DLP’s Rental Loan Program, and DLP Realty leaseback & buyback programs. The future vision includes the following checkpoints;

  • It focuses on checkpoints for reaching our 2028 goals, including generating $1 billion in revenue and $2.5 billion in capital under management.
  • DLP also aims to own 35,000 rental units w/ 100,000 residents and loans back by 25,000 units by 2028.
  • The compass not only sets goals but also focuses on ways DLP will give back. With the DLP Positive Returns Foundation, we plan to give 1% of team members time, ¼% of net revenue, and ¼% of capital raised to support those in need of housing and jobs.

Dream On

As part of DLP’s Dream On Program, CEO Don Wenner granted dreams that team members brought forward. DLP wants to help our team members live fully in all aspects of their lives.

People have lifelong dreams and to be able to grant dreams for our team members truly changes lives.

 

Several of the dreams included:

  • Kelly H. and her children had been sharing a room in her parent’s house an hour from DLP. She has been prevented from purchasing her own home due other expenses. Dream On will provide down payment assistance and help Kelly secure financing to purchase her own home, closer to DLP.
  • Melody R. had the dream of Don providing real estate investment advice, and her wish was granted.
  • Myrtle B. helped Mark (84) & Lucille (78) find a place to live a few years ago. Lucille is suffering from Alzheimer’s, Mark is her caretaker, their current rental is being sold, and they couldn’t find a place to live. Dream On will provide rent assistance for six months.
  • Emily F. submitted a dream for her team member Ryan, who has been without transportation to visit his children. Dream On will provide Ryan with down payment assistance to provide him with transportation.
  • Dream On will help Kenny G. in organizing and achieving his dream of building a new house and leaving a legacy for his family.
  • Julia M. wanted to visit her family in Ukraine, but she has been unable to visit. One of her fellow team members anonymously submitted a dream for her. Dream On will provide Julia with a round-trip ticket to visit her family!
