And how can apartment investors leverage technology to better the resident experience and compete in the market of the future?

Most of us would really like to live a life of purpose. Problem is, working a traditional W-2 job can take all the good out of you. We come home exhausted and have little bandwidth left for our families, so the idea of serving others seems totally out of reach. But what kind of impact could you make if your living expenses were covered? What if you had the time freedom to pursue a meaningful life? What if multifamily real estate investing could get you there in three years?
Drew Whitson is a full-time real estate investor with a portfolio of 1,000-plus units in five states. He also happens to run The Michael Blank Investor Incubator, serving as a mentor and coach to help aspiring multifamily investors do their first apartment building deal. Drew spent 16 years working in corporate finance before leaving his W-2 job at a boutique investment banking firm in early 2018 to focus exclusively on his real estate career.
On this episode, Drew joins me to explain how achieving financial freedom has given him the opportunity to pursue a meaningful life. He describes how getting laid off twice in a single year inspired him to control his own destiny by way of multifamily syndication. Drew walks us through his first few apartment building deals and discusses why buying a 32-unit property was so much easier than a fourplex! Listen in for Drew’s insight around raising money BEFORE you have a deal under contract, getting brokers to take you seriously as a newbie, and joint venturing with partners who share your vision for the future.

Real estate investors come in many different shapes and sizes. Some young, some older. Some with financial resources, others without. But the one thing they ALL have in common is hustle. They balance learning with DOING, taking action to achieve their dreams of financial freedom through multifamily.
David Kamara was working a demanding job in management consulting, traveling as much as 48 weeks a year. In an effort to spend more time with his family, David enlisted the help of a mentor to fast-track his real estate career and closed on his first 40-unit multifamily deal in October of 2018. Within a year, David had replaced his income, and today, he has a portfolio of 247 units. He runs his own management consulting business as well as Cape Sierra Capital, an apartment building investing firm that focuses on undervalued multifamily properties in the Midwest and Southeast US.
On this episode, David joins me to explain how his daughters inspired him to make time for multifamily and what he did to get started. He walks us through his first 40-unit deal, discussing how having a mentor helped get brokers to take him seriously. David also shares his experience with the Law of the First Deal, explaining how he had two more deals under contract within two months of closing!
