Are you still skeptical of the idea that you can build a real estate business using other people’s money? Or, maybe you don’t think that your network has access to the kind of capital you would need for a multifamily investment. Matt Faircloth argues that you simply don’t know where to look, and he is living proof that with the right approach, you can develop a robust real estate portfolio by raising private capital.
Matt is the co-founder of The DeRosa Group, a real estate investment firm headquartered in Trenton, New Jersey. Matt and his wife, Liz, have been investing in real estate since 2004, and they have vast experience with single family, multifamily, office and retail properties. Matt’s firm has completed more than $30M in real estate transactions involving private capital, and he is the author of Raising Private Capital: Building Your Real Estate Empire Using Other People’s Money.
