What we're about

Welcome to the ELEVATE Investing Group!

This group exists for growth minded individuals who want to increase their understanding of wealth building, and be inspired by a group of people who have achieved real results.

Founders Jerry Horst and Michael Manthei will be sharing real life lessons on what it takes to become successful and financially free. Come ready to learn, expand your level of thinking, and connect with amazing investors!

Jerry's company, Vanguard Development Group, is a commercial and multifamily development company, with approximately 1000 units currently under development. Jerry is affectionately called the Rich Dad of Lancaster, sharing insights from his 40+ year career in business, raising seven children, and traveling the world as a minister. Learn the lessons that Jerry teaches his own children to prepare them for creating, growing, and stewarding wealth.

Michael Manthei started investing in real estate with only $25,000, and shares his journey from 1-100+ rental units in less than four years, leaving the rat race, and his experiment with retiring in his early thirties.

Join Jerry and Michael, along with their friends and mentors, as they share the lessons they've learned, the struggles they've overcome, and the principles that only come from real life experience.
