About Us

Vision Statement

We help people achieve financial freedom by investing in real estate collectively rather than individually so that we can achieve greater investment success together than we could achieve individually by pooling talent and resources.

Paul Heaps - Managing Partner

Paul Heaps is a full-time real estate broker, property manager, and investor. Paul purchased his first investment property in 1998 and has been full-time in real estate for over 20 years.

While many people know of Paul as part of the Heaps Team with his wife Becky, it is real estate investment that is his first passion. Prior to real estate, Paul graduated from the University of Michigan Business School and worked in finance for one of the “Big 4” accounting firms now known as Price Waterhouse Coopers. His financial background and experience doing business valuation work provided a knowledge base not always found in real estate investors.
Mark Dowsett - Managing Partner

Mark is a full-time property manager and co-owner of Real Property Management Instant Equity in Tampa. After graduating from Grand Valley State University and working in the Grand Rapids area for about 2 years, Mark picked up and moved to Tampa to open the Real Property Management office.

Upon moving to Tampa, Mark knew no one and had no initial business contacts in the area. Despite this, Mark worked diligently to build the Tampa office to over 200 rental units in less than 5 years.

Mark now has an established network of investor clients, contractors, vendors, realtors, and many other people necessary to run a successful property investment and management business.

Matt Sieber - Managing Partner

Hi, My name is Matt Sieber. I live in St. Joseph, Mi with my wife (Kaitlin) of 13 years and two daughters Lydia (8) and Ellie (5). After 6 years of being in the builders trade and general contracting world, I became a licensed Realtor in the State of Michigan. 

My exposure to contracting, which began in 2009, provided opportunities to explore Real Estate Investments through house flipping, wholesaling, the Mobile Home Park industry, and SFH buy and hold with management. 

Becoming a licensed Realtor was initially just so I could be my own agent for my investment homes, but it quickly grew to working with friends, family, and a close network of folks. Five years later it has evolved to several $4-5 million dollars in sales years and in 2021, $9 Million in sales. By becoming an agent, I’ve now had the opportunity to partner up with Paul Heaps and the rest of the team.
