“We've got to strengthen black institutions. 
I call upon you to take your money out of the banks downtown... 
We begin the process of building a greater economic base:  

- Martin Luther King Jr.  | April 3, 1968

No more talking. With confidence we have taken action & achieved…

How We Made History!

• On June 1, 2018, Tulsa Real Estate Fund launched the first African American Owned Reg A+ crowd sourced equity Real Estate Fund.
 • Over $6 million was raised within the first week.
• 9,000+ Investors became a part of the TREF community. Many were unaccredited, first-time Real Estate Investors.
• Founding Investors names were memorialized on the Legacy Wall housed at the TREF Legacy Center.

"They said that the Negro had no initiative; that he was not a business man, but a laborer; that he had not the brain to engineer a corporation, 
to own and run ships; that he had no knowledge of navigation, therefore the proposition was impossible.
Oh! ye of little faith. The Eternal has happened."

- Marcus Garvey, on the launching of the Black Star Line
Collectively we achieved what they called “The Impossible”…
We challenged this idea and went to work!

We’ve opened our accounting books for public review. In 2019, we filed the results of our full year 2018 audited financials with the SEC. This is an annual filing that we will repeat every year.

We’ve contracted with Computershare, a global leader in financial governance services, to ensure our Investor’s shares are properly accounted for. Computershare serves some of the largest companies in the world including Exxon, Intel and American Express. 

Transactional Funding

TREF  Launches Innovative Loan Product
Earlier this year we launched our Transactional Funding loan offering and uncovered a hidden gem in the private lending space. This offering has been well received attracting both large and small borrowers.

We allocated $3MM to this business (per day) but our team is increasingly originating deals that surpass $3MM thus opening the opportunity for various types of partnerships.
What is Transactional Funding?
Transactional funding is a "One Day Loan" meant to bridge real estate transactions. Typically used for real estate entrepreneurs who are wholesaling real estate or creatively acquiring real estate themselves.
Transactional Funding is a relatively new concept. Historically real estate investors would work with the closing agents to conduct "Simultaneous" Closings, where the End-Buyers (B Side) funds would be used for the Investors (A Side) purchase of the property.

With the increased scrutiny and recent regulatory actions, these types of transactions have become difficult, if not impossible. Even the most "Investor Friendly" closing companies have had to change their practices to comply with these pressures.

Transactional Funding provides an easy alternative to the transaction, by breaking the A Side purchase and B Side sale into two completely separate transactions, each independently funded. This type of closing is typically referred to as Back-to-Back Closing, reducing the liabilities for all.

Who Is Jay Morrison?

A successful entrepreneur and business mogul, Jay Morrison is the CEO and founder of several organizations including the historic Tulsa Real Estate Fund, the first Black owned real estate crowd fund in history.

Jay is also the Founder and President of one of Inc. 5000’s fastest growing companies in the country, the Jay Morrison Academy, an innovative wealth education institution.

Beating the odds after living in poverty, dropping out of high school and serving prison time for drug trafficking– this two time best selling author was able to turn his life around by breaking into real estate and becoming one of the industry’s biggest influencers.
Urban neighborhoods across the nation do not have control of our dollars or our real estate, and it is difficult for minority developers to secure funding for real estate redevelopment projects in our communities.

As a result, urban neighborhoods are being developed by outside individuals who do not share the same interests as the community they're gentrifying. This development without the equitable participation of the Black community, leads to the displacement of longtime residents and the fleecing of property equity from the very people being displaced. 

Through Tulsa Real Estate Fund, we've pooled our capital to begin taking control of our dollars and the real estate in our communities.

How Can I Invest With TREF?

How Much Do I Make From My Investment?

TREF FAQ's


1) Who is Computershare?   
Computershare is Tulsa Real Estate Fund’s transfer agent and record keeper. Computershare is a global leader in financial and corporate governance services. Computershare serves some of largest companies in the world including Exxon, Intel and American Express. Find out more by visiting their website at Computershare.com.

Your Computershare portal houses your shares, provides share balance information, tax forms and other pertinent account information as well as admin functions such as the ability to transfer ownership or name beneficiaries. 

2) Will there be communications sent out?
Yes, a TREF Newsletter will be distributed monthly. In the newsletter, you can expect to receive information regarding current announcements, fund activity, property holding updates, transactions that have taken place, upcoming events and much more. 

3) How do I fill out the W9 form? 
Please consult with a tax preparer to complete this form.

4) When can I expect a return?
Real Estate is a long-term investment, which is why we project a hold period of approximately five to seven years.
During that time, TREF Investors are eligible for an 8% preferred cumulative dividend. The dividend is paid periodically based on Fund financials but accumulates annually. Meaning if the Fund does not pay a dividend in 2020, then the 8% is added to the value of the following year’s dividend equaling a 16% payable dividend in 2021, and so on.  

5) What deals are you currently accepting? 
Tulsa Real Estate Fund 1 was created to invest in various real estate related assets such as single family, multifamily and commercial properties throughout the United States through lending, acquisition or development. The Company intends, primarily to invest in properties that are in neighborhoods that the Manager believes will be adversely affected by gentrification efforts. The Company believes by lending to or partnering with developers in key areas where the Company does not have a physical presence, it may still be able to achieve the Company’s goal of development to hedge against gentrification efforts while still realizing a return on investment. This may include opportunities in those areas deemed as Qualified Opportunity Zones. Use the SUBMIT A DEAL button at the top of this page to initiate the process. 

6) Can I trade my shares? 
No. There is not a secondary market for TREF shares. The shares do not operate like stock securities in a publicly traded company listed on the New York Stock Exchange; rather, your shares represent a partnership in a private company- the Tulsa Real Estate Fund. TREF preferred shares offer an 8% payable cumulative dividend and a 50% share in profits. 

7) Can I assign or transfer my shares?
Yes, as the designated owner of the shares you can transfer and/or assign your shares to another person or entity. Please call or email us for details on how to transfer your shares at 1-844-73-TULSA (or) info@TulsaRealEstateFund.com

8) Can I sell my shares?
Yes, but this is extremely rare. TREF shares do not trade in a secondary market like the New York Stock Exchange. So, in order to sell your shares, as the designated owner, you would need to have already secured a buyer. This transaction agreement would be between you and the buyer. 
TREF is not operating as a broker.

9) What is the IRS Schedule K-1 Form? And when should I expect to receive it?
The Schedule K-1 (Form 1065) is an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax form issued annually for businesses that operate as a partnership, such as an investment in private real estate with Tulsa real Estate Fund. 

Our goal is to issue the Schedule K-1 by March 15th annually. That said, if you ask The Motley Fool, Google, and/or a tax professional about IRS Schedule K-1, they'll likely explain that the process of interpreting relevant new tax laws, assembling all the required information from various inside and outside sources, combined with making all of the proper tax calculations is far more exerting and time consuming than preparing a 1099 and/or W2. Therefore, given these complexities, we may need to request an extension to file and distribute Schedule K-1 forms to TREF Investors. 

10) Where does my investment go?
Your investment has made you a shareholder in the Tulsa Real Estate Fund. The fund's primary focus is to deliver an annual 8% preferred cumulative dividend return. We do this by purchasing vetted real estate and real estate related projects with the belief that after improving the condition and management of the assets, they will then appreciate in value and/or produce higher levels of rental income. The Fund Manager is experienced and knowledgeable of several ways to monetize the assets in the fund's portfolio. The primary methods of making money for the fund is by selling the real estate assets at a higher price than purchased and/or by continuing to generate profitable rental income; meaning, being a landlord. 

11) What does "dividend" mean?
The Fund Manager defines a dividend as a sum of money paid by Tulsa Real Estate Fund to its shareholders (you) out of its profits (or reserves).

12) What does "capital raised" mean?
The Fund Manager defines capital raised as the total amount of money that has been invested in the fund. 

13) What does "fund expenses" mean?

The Fund Manager defines fund expenses as the operating, overhead and investing expenses Tulsa Real Estate Fund is responsible for in order to successfully operate the fund. Some of these expenses are, but not limited to, real estate related staff, office space, legal fees, accounting fees, technology, and more. 

14) What does "fund performance" mean?
The Fund Manager defines fund performance as a measurement of outcomes. In plain terms- did the fund make money or lose money over time? The Fund Manager measures performance by calculating the Internal Rate of Return (IRR) on assets. 

15) What does IRR mean?
Simply stated, the Internal rate of return (IRR) for an investment is the percentage rate earned on each dollar invested for each period it is invested. The IRR is widely used in commercial real estate as an investment performance measure. Generally speaking, the higher a project's internal rate of return, the more desirable the project is to undertake.

What About The Covid-19 Pandemic?

Without question, we are facing an unknown future. Here is what we do know:

On March 5, 2020, home-loan rates hit all-time lows at 3.29%. That rate is the lowest for a 30-year fixed mortgage since Freddie Mac started tracking such rates in 1971.

The Federal Reserve expanded its asset purchases of both treasuries and mortgage backed securities by an additional $625 billion, and committed to continue purchasing however many assets are needed to "support the smooth functioning of markets“

The Federal Reserve expanded the scope of what Mortgage-backed securities it will purchase, now including agency commercial mortgage-backed securities. This means they will buy mortgages backed by government agencies like Fannie Mae for commercial properties like offices. 

Owners of multifamily properties who have federally backed mortgages can get a forbearance for 90 days.

The impact of these stimulus programs and low rates is uncertain and our economic circumstances are unprecedented. It is our outlook given such factors that unique investment opportunities will surface and be available for those investors that are properly capitalized.

Again, we’re announcing that we will be closing the Tulsa Real Estate Fund 1 (TREF Fund 1) on April 29, 2020. 

The time is now to take action if you would like to own a piece of legacy.

We have 22 days before the fund is closed to new investors. Be a part of this historic Black owned real estate fund before we stop accepting capital from new investors.   

Why are we closing TREF Fund 1 to new investors?
Closing TREF Fund 1 allows us to focus on the deployment of capital, making investment decisions in real estate and the administration of dividends.  

Due to circumstances related to COVID-19, Tulsa Real Estate Fund, LLC is not able to meet the filing deadline required by Regulation A for its Annual Report on Form 1-K for the year ended December 31, 2019. The Company is relying on the temporary final rules adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission, which provides a 45-day extension to file the Form 1-K, and intends to file its Form 1-K on or before June 15, 2020.
