Close your eyes and imagine for a moment how it would feel to quit your W-2 job. Imagine having the freedom to control your own time—and financial destiny. Imagine having the passive income to cover your expenses and provide for your family long-term, without being stuck in those golden handcuffs. If you’re dreaming of handing in a letter of resignation, then multifamily real estate investing may offer the ideal solution.

Danny Randazzo is an author, entrepreneur and full-time real estate investor. He has a background as a financial consultant, advising multibillion-dollar companies in improving revenue performance, but Danny’s ambition to achieve financial freedom led him to move from the Bay Area to Charleston, South Carolina, and build an impressive real estate portfolio with his wife, Caitlin. Now, Danny and his team control $130M in multifamily properties across the country, and he is focused on helping others invest passively in apartment buildings.

Today, Danny joins me to discuss his transition from W-2 employee to full-time real estate investor. He reflects on his decision to move to a market ripe for growth and the impetus behind his pivot to focus fully on multifamily. Danny also offers advice around raising money for syndications, ensuring alignment of interests with potential partners, and leveraging joint ventures to scale your business. Listen in for insight on making the decision to quit your job and pursue real estate full-time and learn why multifamily is the most direct route to financial freedom!
