Gino Barbaro is passionate about multifamily investing, and he believes it’s about the strength of your WHY that determines your success. You must DECIDE you want to change your life, and if you do, you have no choice but to take massive action.
That’s what he did several years ago. Gino was in the restaurant business for 22 years, and he was burned out. He decided he needed to change his life, and he chose real estate to do it.
In this episode, he chronicles his amazing journey from pizza guy to full time multifamily investor. Despite setbacks, a bad partnership and an all consuming day job at the restaurant, he and his partner Jake did their first deal, a 25-unit in Knoxville TN. Today they own nearly 700 units and the sky’s the limit.
Together with Jake, he created Jake and Gino.com, a real estate educational company that offers coaching and training in real estate investing. He is the best selling author of the book “Wheelbarrow Profits”.
Listen and be inspired by Gino’s story. Decide and Your Real Estate Success Will Follow.
