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 120 properties with more than 13,000 spaces. He is the 12th largest owner and operator of manufactured housing communities in the country and the largest owner his age.
Eli’s companies operate in California, Oregon, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, Wyoming, Texas, Kansas, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, Michigan, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Rhode Island, Maryland and 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 cofounded Woodcrest Homes, a manufactured home dealership that specialized on in-park sales. For 17 years, Eli has run a successful manufactured home dealership, sold more than 1,000 homes and has a reputation throughout California as one of the few mobile home park buyers that can fill vacant spaces just about anywhere.
Eli is involved in several local charities including Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Keaton’s Child Cancer Alliance, and Compassion Planet.
