Really very disappointed with this sponsor. I am in their Opportunity Fund V, which really isn't much of a fund, since it has only 2 investments (I was under the impression it was supposed to be 3-5). Communication is very poor with no details on why distributions are falling significantly under projections (after a year they are at 5.6% versus preferred of 10%) even though they are leased up??!!!

I was invested in The Phoenix Industrial Opportunity offering which closed on 12/30/2015. It was eventually exitted on 6/30/2017. In 1.5 years, the return was 40% with a IRR of 25%, which was close to the projected IRR of 26.9%. Overall, very happy with the results of the investment. Timely communication was lacking, as mentioned by others.

Great Niche, background and track record. If they hire a PR firm to handle all the investors Q&A they would likely do better with crowdfunding. Try getting a straight answer from O'Donnell himself .. it will drive you insane. Too early to tell how the returns with them will be in the fund.. but, doubt I will ever invest with them again.

I rated O'Donnell as my #1 sponsor before I invested with them due to their excellent track record. Unfortunately, their communication has become more of a problem. It is not easy to get an answer from Doug, but at the beginning he did respond. More recently he and his team did not respond to me for more than a couple of weeks, which made me uncomfortable. I am rating it lower!

To sum it up succintly: they have a good niche, seem to know their markets well, don't really communicate much, charge well for their services,not much skin in the game on deals.
Returns is what prob. keeps investors with them is my guess
