Follow The Deal | Real Estate Group Investing

About Us

We’ve been acquiring multi-family properties since 2020, and to date, have done hundreds of Real Estate transactions. We wholeheartedly believe that Real Estate is the best asset to earn passive income and achieve true generational wealth.
Our goal is to enhance our investors knowledge and be a part of achieving their financial goals while building legacy wealth. When we started our Real Estate Investing journey, we wanted to take control of our financial future, not only for us, but for our children. We were sick of seeing news stories (local and global) having a significant negative impact on our finances in stocks and mutual funds, and we had zero control over it.
Our journey started in January 2020, buying small multi-family cash-flowing properties, soon to have 150 units in the first year. At the same time, we also launched a fix-and-flip residential business, and currently flip 25 single family homes per year. We saw the “power” of real estate and so did our friends and family. Oftentimes, we would be asked, “How do we get started?”. We would walk them through the basics, and then the next time we would see them, it was déjà vu, and we would have the same conversation. We learned that it was difficult to take the action needed to begin on a real estate investing journey. This is when the light bulb went off for us. Everyone in our close social circle wanted to invest in real estate, but very few had the time, energy, and knowledge to do so. What if we could do all the heavy lifting for them, pool our resources together to enable investment in larger assets? In that moment, Follow the Deal Investments was born.
Today, we pride ourselves on continuously learning while educating our friends, family, and acquaintances on real estate and the power of group investing.

Ross McArthur


I have spent 15 years building, contributing, and working for software companies ranging from startups (that eventually sold to private equity companies), fortune 500 companies, and even multibillion-dollar private conglomerates.
Even though I was an executive and on a great trajectory, I wanted more and to build something for myself, my friends, and my family. Ever since I was 16 years old, Real Estate and Entrepreneurship have been calling me. In January 2020, I started my Real Estate Investing story, but it wasn’t before I spent thousands of hours learning the industry that in March 2023, I did something that I’ve only dreamt of, and I was able to leave Corporate America to focus 100% of my time and energy on my passion of Real Estate Investing.
Fast forward to now, we have completed hundreds of Real Estate transactions. I am an owner, manager, and operator of over 40 million dollars (700 Units) in Real Estate Holdings. I also own and operate a residential flipping business that averages 30 flips per year. The group investing company, I co-founded, is currently growing at an average of 1 property (20 -150 units) per month. Our niche is finding creative ways in the current lending environment to get profitable deals to the closing table.
My passion is to help educate, guide, and execute for others wanting to start or continue along their Real Estate Investing journey through the brand, Follow the Deal Investments. Our mantra is to help our partners and ourselves increase our “Velocity of Money”.

Even with success in the corporate world, Stan had a thirst for freedom – the freedom to play a round of golf with his wife, take his son fishing and watch his daughter’s cheerleading team. These freedoms, like most personal life rewards, are often diluted with the demands of a W2 job. It was this mindset shift that ignited his passion for financial freedom through real estate investing.
His journey to financial freedom started in 2020 when he began investing in small multi-family real estate. He learned the basics of real estate from acquisition to disposition, and everything in between. Currently, he owns, manages, and operates over $20 million in real estate holdings.
Today, Stan continues to invest in real estate through a group investment brand he co-founded, Follow The Deal Investments. Not only does he help others diversify their investments in real estate but teaches and promotes investment strategies and the freedom that comes with recurring cash flow.
