About Neil Timmins

Neil is a commercial real estate syndicator, published author, and podcast host.


Neil’s entry point into the Real Estate industry came after a few short years in banking. Recognized by the Wall Street Journal as a Top 100 team and the #1 REMAX agent in Iowa by the age of 29, Neil had solidified his role as a force in the industry.


Having completed hundreds of Fix & Flips, Wholesales, Wholetails, Novations, and Owner-Financed deals, Neil longed to quit forfeiting time for dollars. After building a portfolio of single-family rentals to produce passive income, he found the strategy to be anything but passive.


Neil, however, didn’t go looking for his first commercial deal, he actually stumbled into it. Since then, he has refined the process of analyzing and buying commercial properties that produce stellar cash flow.


Neil has been involved in over $300,000,000 in real estate transactions. While his holdings in commercial asset classes include apartments, offices, mobile home parks, and self-storage units, his passion is industrial property. Neil now has verticals in residential real estate, multiple commercial asset classes, brokerage, publishing, and this successful podcast.


Neil and his wife, Emily, are the proud parents of three active teenagers. Those who know Neil say he is a competitor by nature, whether for the biggest fish on a deep-sea fishing trip, the best ribs at a barbeque, or playing football back in his day at his alma mater, the University of Nebraska at Omaha as a Maverick. Neil is always up for travel, spending time on the water, and of course, meeting people interested in learning about and investing in commercial properties.
