Elias Weiner is the founder and owner of The BoaVida Group. The BoaVida Group is a manufactured home community and RV park real estate investment company which owns and operates more than 170 properties with more than 20,500 spaces. He is the 8th largest owner and operator of manufactured housing communities in the country.
Eli’s companies operate in 30 states throughout the country, from California to Maine, Alaska to Florida. On a daily basis, Eli is actively involved in company marketing, management of property development, targeting new acquisitions, due diligence, home sales and general management decisions.
What makes Eli unique and sets him apart from his competition is his ground-up, bootstrapping beginnings in the business. He began in 2000 as a mobile home salesperson selling brand-new homes into empty spaces in mobile home parks, while attending UC Davis. One year later at the age of 22 he co-founded a manufactured home dealership and, in 2002, Eli shifted his primary focus from mobile home sales to park acquisitions and investment. He is now one of the most active manufactured home buyers in the country, with dealer licenses in 18 states and counting.
BoaVida is on target to sell 1,000 homes per year, living up to its national reputation as one of the few operators that can fill vacant spaces just about anywhere. Eli’s portfolio of mobile home and RV parks continues to grow at a swift pace, having built an operations and investment company designed to provide superior risk adjusted returns to investors.
Eli is involved in several local charities including Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Youth For Christ, Keaton’s Child Cancer Alliance, Compassion Planet, Allegiant Giving, and United Cerebral Palsy of Sacramento.
In his spare time, Eli enjoys some ping pong, surfing, driving his red Chevelle convertible, and spending time with family. Eli is proud of the one professional headshot he has ever taken (not pictured).
