Financial Freedom with Real Estate Investing
At the age of 18, Alex Mandaro is the youngest mentoring student we’ve ever had at the Michael Blank organization. So, we’re doing a grand experiment and asking Alex to document his journey! 

In a reality-style series broadcast through our social media channels, Alex will share a behind-the-scenes look at the life and times of a new syndicator.

On this episode of Financial Freedom with Real Estate Investing, Alex joins me to explain what inspired his interest in multifamily and why he believes he’ll be successful.

He discusses why he used his college money to invest in mentoring, describing how he is getting the most out of our program and learning from the mistakes of others.

Listen in for insight on following Alex’s journey with us to find out if you really can be a successful syndicator without experience or cash of your own!
