Mission First Capital

Our Management Team

Phil Capron

Phil served honorably as a Naval Special Warfare Combatant Craft Crewman (SWCC) in the Navy, where he spent his days jumping out of planes, shooting, and manning the radios on the small fast boats that take Navy SEALs and other Special Operations personnel to and from their missions in non-permissive or denied areas of the world.

He quickly realized that real estate was something he had a passion for and committed to pursuing it further when his time in the service was over. He took a real estate license course while still in the Navy and upon separation from service in 2012 immediately went to work selling his buddies from his old unit homes as they transferred to Virginia from other duty stations. Eventually, he developed an appetite to create real wealth and dove head first into his first multi-family acquisition, a 13-unit property in Norfolk. Now, over 400 units later, he is a full time multi-family acquisitions specialist.


Phil prides himself on creatively finding win-win solutions for complex problems and credits his time in the military with his tenacious no quit attitude and commitment to teamwork. Phil has been featured on many of the most well-known real estate podcasts and regularly speaks at conferences around the country.
