Mr. Sanders has been involved in the real estate profession for over 18 years. He is currently a Principal and Managing Director of ANCRE Group. Since 2014, Wes has closed almost $30M in transactions. He was also directly involved in analyzing, underwriting, submitting offers, or valuations, on over $1B in properties during the same timeframe.
In 2015, among other accomplishments, Wes and his partners successfully completed the syndication, acquisition, and renovation of an apartment complex. Over the next 18 months, the property was strategically transformed. With an increase in EGI of almost 30%, expense reduction of 16%, the value increase exceeded expectations. Wes was also instrumental in the 2016 acquisition and renovation of an apartment complex in Dallas. This property required significant mechanical and aesthetic interior and exterior upgrades, which resulted in a value increase of approximately 40% over costs in one year, and it was put under contract after 18 months at 75% over the acquisition and renovation costs, selling in early 2018.
Wes is active in the valuation industry with completion and review of over 800 appraisals in the past few years and several thousand over his career. Wes has extensive experience in feasibility studies, rent studies, and appraisal review for commercial properties.

He was also a Valuation Trends speaker at the 2014 Annual Conference for the Aggie Real Estate Network. National appraisal and market studies have included properties in over 15 states in the Midwest, Southeast, Northeast, and Puerto Rico.
In addition to his valuation background, Wes started investing in real estate a month after his 19th birthday. Using the guidance of a very helpful broker and a FHA loan, he was able to buy a duplex with no co-signer. After renovating and turning a 32% profit, Wes knew real estate would be his career. He began real estate sales a couple years later, specializing in selling duplexes, condos, as well as leasing student housing properties and apartments. Wes currently owns multiple single-family investment properties, apartment complexes with partners, and is currently looking for other opportunities to invest.
