Pivoting to Profits: $48.5MM Real Estate Portfolio in 4 years with Josh Ferrari | REM #157
Many real estate investors get started in the single family space before they transition into the multifamily space. We started by wholesaling houses and completing a flip. But, we realized it would take us much longer to reach our real estate goals through single family investing than it would if we thought bigger. This process of thinking bigger led us to doing bigger deals. Today’s guest has a similar origin story, and he’s proof that you can make the jump from wholesaling or flipping to taking down large apartment complexes! Joshua Ferrari, founder of Ferrari Capital, co-founder of Three Beach Capital, and a full-time real estate investor. Josh has a background as an Aircraft Technician before he got into real estate. After just 4 short years Josh has accumulated over $50MM AUM, 650 units, and has successfully raised millions of dollars from various private investors. He continues to teach others how to follow in his footsteps via The Ferrari Capital Multifamily Mastermind. He’s also the host of Creative Capital, where he has gotten over 450K downloads with thousands of loyal weekly listeners. In this episode, we talk to Josh about the lessons he learned from the single family space, and why his experience there pushed him into seeking bigger deals. He also explains how he found a mentor without paying for one, how he’s achieved financial freedom through real estate, and the creative investment model he’s using to build REAL generational wealth for himself and his investors. This episode is full of knowledge for both new investors and those of you with years of experience. Press play–and change your life!

Recession Resistance: The Bigger Picture with $150MM AUM Investor Hunter Thompson | REM #156
With the news reporting a recession on the horizon, and many investors frozen by fear, it’s understandable if you’re not sure whether now is the right time to get into real estate. Many seasoned investors are sitting on the sidelines right now, waiting until things seem more certain. However, Warren Buffet is famous for saying, “Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful.” So, is now the time to be greedy? This is the question we grapple with as investors, and the one we attempt to tackle during our conversation with today’s special guest. Hunter is a full-time real estate investor, and founder of Asym Capital (“AY-SIM). Since founding Asym, Hunter has helped more than 400 retail investors acquire over $150,000,000 of mobile home parks, self-storage, retail, office, ATM machines, and cryptocurrency assets.

He also wrote Raising Capital for Real Estate which hit #1 on Amazon in Real Estate Sales and Selling.

Analyzing Deals: How Rob Beardsley is Underwriting in Uncertain Times | REM #155
Analyzing deals and underwriting can be extremely daunting. Many people consider underwriting an art, though there is a lot of analysis and numbers involved. This part of the active investing process can take some time to learn, but it’s one of the most critical aspects of sourcing deals. Learning how to underwrite multifamily properties is a challenge in any stage of the market cycle. However, when there is a heightened level of uncertainty, there is even more pressure on an underwriter to ensure they are making defensible assumptions and taking a conservative approach to their projections. Underwriting isn’t impossible, but it can take time to learn. It also helps to learn from an expert, which is exactly why we brought on Rob Beardsley as a guest. Rob Beardsley oversees acquisitions and capital markets for Lone Star Capital and has acquired over $300M of multifamily real estate. He has evaluated thousands of opportunities using proprietary underwriting models and published the number one book on multifamily underwriting, The Definitive Guide to Underwriting Multifamily Acquisitions. In today’s conversation, Rob dives into the fundamentals of underwriting. He discusses how he vets his markets, the best advice for a new investor wanting to learn how to underwrite, and some overall market knowledge that can provide context to an underwriter’s assumptions. He also drops some gems relating to how he stress tests his underwriting, and his views on the current debt market. This episode is packed with knowledge from one of the leading underwriting thought leaders in the multifamily space, so make sure to tune in!

Asset Management in a Downturn with THIS Powerhouse Investor with Sandhya Seshadri | REM #154
When you close on an apartment syndication deal, the work is just getting started. Asset management involves maximizing the potential revenue at a property, and identifying new ways to create and grow long term value by increasing the property’s Net Operating Income. While your marketing might be what attracts passive investors, asset management is what keeps them coming back! Whether you’re an operator, capital raiser, or passive investor, understanding asset management at a fundamental level is essential to making savvy investment decisions. Over the past few years, many operators have benefited from strong markets and rising rental premiums. However, in hard times, the asset manager determines how the property performs. For these reasons, we brought on an asset management expert to discuss these timely topics. Sandhya Seshadri is an experienced apartment syndicator in Dallas with over $100M hundred million dollars in assets under management. Sandhya is experienced in all aspects of multifamily Syndication from underwriting and broker relationships to raising capital and asset management to execute the business plan. In this episode, Kerwin and Sandhya dive into why asset management is so important, particularly during an economic downturn. She also mentions why she keeps cash reserves, managing a property management company, and important KPIs she tracks to ensure her properties perform. She also explains how she manages her capital expenditures budget, why she doesn’t assume large rent bumps in her underwriting, and much more. This is an episode you cannot afford to miss!

With all of the uncertainty in the real estate market right now, it’s understandable why some investors are scared. However, with the right investment principles, mindset, and underwriting approach, savvy investors can weather the economic storm and continue hunting for deals. It’s more important now than ever to underwrite conservatively, and understand how the market, type of debt, and interest rates can impact your acquisitions and property performance. That’s why we decided to bring on Eli Vo as today’s guest. Eli s a retired veteran, where he proudly served his country for 21 years as a paratrooper in the US Army and later as an IT Specialist in the US Air Force.

Why THIS Surgeon Turned to Real Estate Investing with Roderick Capelo | REM #150
In today’s investing market, stability might be considered a luxury. So much uncertainty is causing stock market investors and crypto currency owners to wait on the edge of their seats for their investments to recover.

Here’s Why Doctors Aren’t Wealthy with Harry Nima Zegarra | REM #149
Doctors are seen as the most successful people in our society, and for good reason. Becoming a doctor requires extensive training and education, and is more intensive than many other career fields.

We wanted to know why this was the case, so we invited Harry Nima Zegarra to be a guest on the show. Harry is a Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine Physician, real estate investor, entrepreneur, co-founder and manager of Nima Equity, a commercial real estate syndication company where he helps physicians to earn passive income, lower taxes and achieve financial freedom.

During our conversation, Harry shared some insightful lessons from his time as a single family investor you can use if you’re currently in that space. He also discusses the challenges he faced as he transitioned into apartment investing, and you can take this wisdom and apply it to your own journey if you’re looking to scale up into larger real estate assets. Along with this, Harry breaks down the reasons why doctors might not be as financially successful as you’d think, and what the root causes of their financial problems are.

That’s why today’s guest is a real estate investor who invests in American real estate from his home in Barcelona.

Billy earned his stripes as a true problem-solver, a skill he carried into his new entrepreneurial life.

Elite Investor Secrets to Closing More Multifamily Deals with Beau Beery | REM #147
Commercial brokers are the gatekeepers to real estate opportunities in the larger multifamily space. Unfortunately, going direct-to-owner isn’t going to cut it, especially not if you want to do deals at scale. It’s almost necessary to build great relationships with commercial brokers in the markets you invest in if you want to take down multifamily deals. If the idea of cold calling brokers is overwhelming, don’t worry. That’s why we brought on Beau Beery to discuss how to get on the good side of a multifamily broker. Beau Beery has been in the commercial real estate business in Florida since 1999. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Marketing and a Master of Science degree in Real Estate from the University of Florida. He also holds the prestigious Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designation. In 2011, he teamed up with Todd Rainsberger, a successful commercial Realtor, to acquire an interest in Coldwell Banker Commercial M.M. Parrish Realtors in partnership with the Parrish family. There he was consistently ranked as the #1 multifamily producer in Florida for the Coldwell Banker Commercial brand and among the Top 5 in the nation every year before starting his own private multifamily brokerage firm in 2021. He is regularly asked to speak at industry conferences and to private companies. He also has an ever-growing YouTube channel (called BeauKnowsMultifamily) where he guides viewers on how to buy more multifamily assets, how to sell them, and how to conduct market analysis. In this episode, Beau shares tips for bringing a broker value, missteps to avoid, and some important stats you NEED to know to understand multifamily transactions.

How I Fired My Boss and Built a Real Estate Empire | REM #146
Many newer real estate investors start with wholesaling properties. Wholesaling is when someone gets a property under a contract from the owner of the property and assigns that same contract to an end buyer for a fee. We (the Donis Brothers) started off with wholesaling, and used that business model to break into the industry. If you don’t come from wealth or money, wholesaling is a great way to break into real estate. Wholesaling allows you to not only generate active income, but it also gives you access to off-market properties that you can add to your own personal portfolio of cash flowing rentals. Dedric Polite, alongside his wife Krystal have made millions in real estate, buying, renovating and flipping homes and properties. But they’ve strategically built long term wealth by also buying and holding property for rental, ensuring coveted financial freedom through passive income and consistent cash flow. Viewers can get a front-row seat to see how they do it all with their engaging home series “50/50 Flip,” premiering January 29 on A&E. In this episode, Dedric and Kerwin talk about how wholesalers can build long term wealth by cherry picking properties from their own leads. Dedric also shares some advice on how to build unique property lists like he has that continue to generate leads for him, years after he created them! Tune in to get these gems and much more!

Here’s Why Investors Prefer Multifamily Over Single Family Investing | REM #145
Many investors start out flipping houses or buying single family rentals. While single family investing is a great path, there are multiple reasons why investors choose to scale up and move into larger unit properties. We know the thought of buying a larger property can be scary, but it can be worthwhile to make the jump.

Carmen started her real estate career over 15 years ago and has broad investment experience in flipping, renovating, and adding value to properties.

Carmen was also a math professor for 7 years. Carmen has advice on underwriting deals, lessons learned as a lead sponsor, and the factors that encouraged her to pursue multifamily investing over single family.

What No One Tells You About Flipping Houses | REM #144
Finding deals in a competitive market can be daunting. If you’re last to hear about a deal, or are scratching your head wondering how investors are finding these off market properties, you’re not alone.
