GREENZONE Properties LLC is a property acquisition, development, and fund management company. Our focus is on obtaining properties zoned for cannabis cultivation, manufacturing, and/or dispensing; namely those in the Green Zone. Our focus is on creating multi-generational wealth for both our clients and our investors through our Cash NOW, Cash FLOW and Cash LATER system.
WHY NOW IS PERFECT
The legalization of recreational marijuana in numerous states has created a market and a great investment opportunity. Once federal law is liberalized to allow wider use of cannabis, which is the direction current developments have been leading to, this is going to be a sunrise industry with huge growth potentials. Our goal is to create a strong foundation in this new emerging market and be prepared for 2018 and beyond. We plan on doing this from multiple directions. From purchasing land and securing conditional use permits in various strategic locations in order to build out cultivation grows to manufacturing facilities and dispensaries. Our initial plan is to develop and build out properties that can be sold or leased out for cultivation or manufacturing. Later, when federal law changes we plan to have a chain of dispensaries and retail stores allowing us the chance for the first time to provide a truly reliable and consistently high quality product.
One of the major problems within this industry and one that will likely continue for some time is the stereotype that all people who take Cannabis are “Stoners”. In fact there is some truth to the fact that the industry is FILLED with lazy people who don’t understand business or possess a high work ethic. This industry has NEVER been treated like a real business UNTIL NOW. Our main goal is to help change this perception.
Over 48,000 people die from alcohol every year, 288,000 die from cigarettes and we all accept them as “OK”. Yet Cannabis which has ZERO DEATHS EVER is considered bad and harmful.
At the end of the day we know the opportunity with cannabis in unprecedented. This will be even bigger than the end of prohibition of alcohol, because the population is larger, the demand is greater, there is widespread acceptance, and because of technological advances. The winners in this sector will be the first ones out with a consistent, high grade product and an emphasis on quality customer service. Because of all the indoor hydroponics and the science that is now going into the manufacturing of extracts, the effectiveness of cannabis has increased ten fold. We can now prescribe certain strains for certain ailments decreasing the dependence on Big Pharma and prescription pills.
For these reasons and more we feel this is the right time to get in and establish our footprint, buying and owning the land and buildings that are in the “Green Zone” or those that are zoned specifically for the Cannabis industry. Our mission within the next 5-8 years is to become the largest Landholder of such Green Zoned Properties. We will accomplish this through the acquisition of commercial real estate properties that we can then sell or lease-back to qualified tenants in the Cannabis Industry. For us at GreenZone Properties this is the foundation of what we are doing.
We feel at GreenZone Properties LLC that, no matter what happens, as the Cannabis Industry begins to explode over the next 5-8 years Nationally, that GREEN ZONED PROPERTIES are always going to be the best strategy for growth and stability [as real estate is in ANY sector].
THE GZP 50/50 STRATEGY
With all the uncertainty in this emerging industry real estate is the one factor you can count on. At GreenZone Properties (GZP) we are buying up the landscape in this arena and GZP will be the largest GreenZone Property Management and Development Company in the country. We believe we can accomplish this because of how we work with and take care of our investors.
For every property we sell in our 50/50 Fund our investors will receive 50% of the net profits. For each property that we lease through the Fund, investors will also receive 50%. In other words you’ll get 50% whether we sell or rent a property to a tenant. Sales will help us to return your investment quickly, while leases will provide ongoing cashflow and residual income.
For our CEO Pete Asmus, he understands the power and value of our investors. For him this was the biggest piece, wanting to make sure that he was helping build multi-generational wealth for his investors as well as his own family.
So everyday we are looking for properties within the green zone that fit our criteria to put into our portfolio. We are building a strong brand awareness along with solid investment models that are designed to build multi-generational wealth for our families and our investors. We only work with people we enjoy working with at this point, we’ve been doing this long enough we don’t need to just close a deal or get capital.
WE DO NOT ACCEPT EVERYONE. This is just as much a relationship for us as it is for you. Together we are both investing something into a relationship that we will prosper from. This relationship has to work for both of us. When we have an introductory meeting, as much as you are interviewing us and feeling us out to see if you want to work with us, we are doing the same. In order for us to have a successful relationship it all comes down to expectations. This is one reason why our CEO likes to meet each investor/partner personally, helping to insure the success of our partnership.
Our main goal is to make sure everyone’s expectations are realistic, and then do everything in our power to SHATTER those expectations.
“We are focusing on development for the next 3-5 years to become one of the premier Developers in this sector as it continues to expand.” – Pete Asmus

Investor returns are prorated based upon the date that their paperwork is completed and approved. Those who invest earlier are thus rewarded with a greater return. With each passing month your personal profit decreases by 1/12th. Imagine for example a $100 investment that generates a 50% annual return. If you invest for one year you’ll end up with $150, but if you invest for six months you have only $125.

As CEO of Porrevecchio Advertising and Marketing, Dan Porrevecchio navigated a changing marketing landscape to create a history of success for his clients. In competition with brands such as Lockheed Martin, Hewlett Packard, and FedEx, Porrevecchio Advertising and Marketing produced work featured in the Graphis Advertising Annual as one of the top five corporate campaigns worldwide. Graphis is a compendium of the best advertising, design, photography and art/illustration in the world. More important, Porrevecchio Advertising and Marketing has helped its clients’ make millions, gain market share, and produce a legacy of success for the shareholders and entrepreneurs the agency represents.
Our focus is on achieving strategic objectives and performance, such as taking a business-to-business client from a $79 million loss to a $6 million profit in one year; an industrial client from a start-up to the industry leader in 39 states, an institutional client from a three year trend of negative growth to 14% growth in one year, a business-to-consumer client to double digit growth for 19 years, and directed marketing campaigns for a nationwide insurance enterprise that grew from 2 companies and diversified to more than 50 companies in four years. We begin with an understanding of why people buy. We study people, put them in context with a client’s market segments, business strategy, management principles and distribution models, then craft a message to show why and how our client is a better consumer choice. We respect our clients while respecting the consumer, creating a benefit to both.
Dan’s interests go beyond the world of advertising and marketing. For the better part of the last twenty-three years, Dan has been the Chairman of the Little Blue Valley Homes Association in Kansas City, Missouri. The Little Blue Valley is a scenic, rural, twenty-one square mile area tucked away in the southeast corner of the city. It’s heavily wooded tracts, rolling hills, streams, and narrow winding roads access large and small farmsteads and ranches. A growing interest in residential and commercial development, combined with the community’s interest in maintaining its rural lifestyle, led Dan to bring city leaders together with the community to develop the first major land use plan for Kansas City, Missouri (Area Plan 13). The plan takes advantage of the topography, waterways, and the natural resources preserved by generations of area farmers and ranchers to provide development opportunity without sacrificing the natural beauty, the environment, or the integrity of the community. Since its adoption, Kansas City’s Area Plan 13 has effectively guided development in the Little Blue Valley, and has been used as a model for community development and preservation in cities across the country.
By its nature, the Little Blue Valley is one of the least populous areas of Kansas City. As development interest grew, and with scarce police resources for the area, crime began to disturb the peace and quiet of the Valley. Working with the Kansas City Police Department, Dan brought the community and the Police Department together to create one of the first community policing partnerships in Kansas City. The police department and the community then worked together with the city council to craft ordinances to better protect citizens and the community. Since then, the Little Blue Valley has remained one of the three most crime-free areas in Kansas City. In recognition for this work, Dan was awarded the highest civilian commendation by the Kansas City Missouri Police Commission and the City of Kansas City.
Area Plan 13 spurred city planners to create a blueprint for the future of Kansas City. It is called FOCUS Kansas City – Forging Our Comprehensive Urban Strategy, and Dan was asked to help lead the initiative. FOCUS Kansas City is a blueprint for priorities and guidelines about neighborhoods, jobs, taxes, capital improvements, public safety, education, and more. In short, FOCUS Kansas City was formed to meet the comprehensive challenges facing Kansas City in the 21st century. Stemming from this strategic framework, Kansas City, Missouri has become an entrepreneurial hotbed, and is recognized among the best cities in the country to start a new business. In addition, it is regarded as one of the most hospitable cities to raise a family.
These strategic civic initiatives led to the realization that Kansas City’s charter, crafted in the 1940’s, was no longer suited to meet the goals and the dynamic needs of the city in the 21st century. The Mayor, City Council, and City Manager wanted an innovative plan to revise Kansas City’s charter to make it workable and relevant well into the future. Once again, Dan was asked to help lead this initiative. To accomplish the objective, Dan proposed a city charter designed after the United States Constitution…a simple, clearly defined, yet flexible governance guide working in the interest of citizens and business alike. This proposal was accepted, and 18 months later, Kansas City adopted one of the most innovative, effective, and workable city charters in America.
Dan has also served for many years as an officer and member of the board of directors of four other community institutions: The Muscular Dystrophy Association of Greater Kansas City, the Foundation Workshop for the Developmentally Disabled, the Chamber of Commerce of Greater Kansas City, and the Citizens Association of Kansas City.
