Dive Into Residential & Multi-Family Real Estate With Black Elm Financial Partnership
An experienced, high-level team of experts to manage your investments and create generational wealth.
How The Partnership Works
Investing in real estate is an intelligent way to create generational wealth — but the traditional way of doing things often leaves you with a burden, not a gift.
Maybe you’ve been there before. The borrowed money, constant attention, repair costs, tenant searches, and general landlord duties all resulted in unimpressive returns.
With Black Elm Financial Limited Partnership (BELP or Black Elm Financial), you can invest in residential & multi-family real estate while letting our experienced team manage your investment on your behalf.
Who We Are
When you call us, you’ll be talking with Riley Dykslag — he’s passionate about helping others and his previous experiences have developed this passion even further. We’re a team of professionals that genuinely want to make sure this is the right decision for you. We’d love to talk to you and give your situation the attention it deserves.
Meet the Team
Riley Dykslag has been around real estate investing for most of his life. He began by building up a portfolio of residential rental properties. He quickly encountered the same landlord issues that most investors are faced with and sought a more purposeful way to invest in real estate. He took this experience and founded Black Elm Financial in 2019, focusing on creating a truly hands off approach for investors. He prides himself on focusing on vision meeting execution, and using his experience as a police officer to lead an effective team.
Besides creating the name Epiphany Perpetuity Limited Partnership, Savanna has been involved in the real estate arm of the Epiphany Group since its creation in 2018. Savanna obtained her degree in accounting from the University of Lethbridge in 2019, and is currently a CPA candidate. She joined the Epiphany Group team as a junior accountant and now works as an analyst and accountant for the real estate partnerships.
With her role as Analyst, Savanna focuses on financial analysis, property valuations, and financial modeling. Savanna performs a preliminary analysis on each property to assess whether or not it fits within our portfolio, maintains accurate accounting records for the partnership, provides risk assessment on the portfolio and builds out financial models for the partnership. Savanna also monitors the real estate market for internal/external risks and provides additional support to the partnership managers.
