So, you want to be a multifamily investor, but… You’ve never done a deal before. You don’t feel comfortable approaching potential partners. The pandemic has shut down all of the usual networking events. And you live six time zones ahead of the market where you’d like to invest.
But what if all of these challenges are really just opportunities to grow?
Suzy Sevier and Michael Barnhart are the husband-and-wife team behind Adventurous Real Estate Investors, a multifamily firm dedicated to helping avid travelers and adventure seekers create passive income and time freedom through apartment building investing. Suzy and Michael got interested in real estate during the lockdown, and in nine months, they have attended 10 virtual events, booked 600 networking calls, put together an experienced team and built a portfolio of 88 units—without leaving their home in the UK!
On this episode of Apartment Building Investing, Suzy and Michael join cohost Garrett Lynch and me to share their genius system for turning virtual events into networking opportunities and following up with the people they meet. They explain why they built a thought leadership platform right away and describe what kind of educational content they create. Listen in for insight on how Suzy and Michael turn roadblocks into opportunities, making the best of the situation they’re in to make their dream of financial freedom a reality!
