191: Bridging the Gap & Funding $5B+ in Real Estate Loans with Don Wenner The Lifestyle Investor - Investing, Passive Income, Wealth

    • Business

Don Wenner is the Founder and CEO of DLP Capital, a private real estate investment and financial services firm dedicated to building thriving communities. Since founding DLP Capital in 2006, Don has led the company through significant growth. 

The firm earned a spot on the Inc. 5000 list of “Fastest Growing Private Companies in America” for 11 consecutive years and generated 50% revenue growth for 18 years straight – an incredibly rare achievement. Today, DLP manages over $5 billion in assets.

In our conversation, Don highlights the main obstacles founders face in scaling their businesses, such as failing to raise capital, inconsistent leadership, and over-reliance on bank loans. He explains how his Elite Execution System fills in those gaps, helping entrepreneurs structure their businesses for high growth.

We also get into the tactics and strategies Don uses to keep DLP at the top, making it a powerhouse in single- and multi-family brokerage, investment management, asset management, property management, construction, and private lending. 




In this episode, you’ll learn:




✅ Don’s journey in real estate, leading to over 30,000 real estate transactions totaling over $10 billion and overseeing the acquisition of 25,000+ homes and apartments.

✅ Insights into Don’s Elite Execution System, which has helped DLP secure a spot on the Inc. 5000 for 11 years running, and what businesses can adopt from their approach. 

✅ The 3 biggest opportunities that Don is creating for real estate investors who want to earn big returns, while minimizing risk – regardless of market conditions and cycles.
