178: RAD Diversified REIT President/CEO Dutch Mendenhall


Dutch Mendenhall is a loving father and husband. He currently runs 3 real estate investment funds. He creates positive returns every year for his investors. Dutch is a gifted visionary who has very different beliefs than the average fund manager/leader. He has made his investors millions of dollars and in real estate circles is thought of as a step ahead, a step above, and a step beyond what others are doing. 

He believes in taking care of people first: investors, the team of people that drive the funds, vendors, contractors, tenants, and many more. The constant is “Creating Consistent Goodwill for the Business.” 

His decade of experience of investing is coupled with a decade of consulting real estate companies. Dutch’s experience includes residential, commercial-assets, low- income housing, luxury-housing, assisted-living, self-storage and apartments.
