About Dutch Mendenhall:

Dutch Mendenhall is a husband, father, American patriot, and gifted visionary. He leads by example and doesn’t believe in quitting. His leadership across six real estate investment funds combines the science of advanced analytics with new-age Artificial Intelligence, resulting in formidable industry-leading performance. In 2007, Dutch turned his strengths from a career coaching baseball toward consulting in the real estate industry. He became a highly sought-after thought leader in developing real estate education and training.

Dutch helped thousands of investors earn millions of dollars in real estate revenue. Yet, he knew that a greater purpose still lay ahead. Then, in 2015, Dutch had a vision for what would become RAD Diversified. An exclusive way for his students to partner with him on real estate investments. He felt the calling to help others secure a future for themselves and their families through the power of real estate done right and done together.

So, Dutch began building the rockstar team and groundbreaking systems needed to accomplish this vision. He partnered with real estate legend Amy Vaughn. Brought on high achievers to design RAD Diversified in a way that would scale up as the vision grew. Today, the RAD Diversified team includes more than 150 people and a portfolio of well over $100 million in diversified real estate assets.

His ethos is best summed up as People First. Dutch is always working for his people: investors, the team of people that drive the funds, vendors, contractors, tenants, and many more. The constant is “Creating Consistent Goodwill for the Business.” Dutch does not believe in comparison but sets his sights on his race against himself.
