What is your true, God-given calling in this life? Most of us are limited by time and money, so we don’t even dare to dream about fulfilling our purpose. But what if multifamily investing could give you the freedom to pursue your calling? To live a life of significance? And to make a real impact in the world?

Ellis Hammond is the founder of Kingdom Capitalists, the #1 mastermind for Christian real estate entrepreneurs. In 2018, when Ellis was serving as a full-time college pastor, he and his wife invested in a $600K duplex in San Diego. Nine months later, he added a 144-unit multifamily property in Memphis to his portfolio. Today, he manages a network of investors seeking passive income opportunities across the US with the goal of increasing their income and impact.

On this episode of Apartment Building Investing, Ellis joins me to discuss what inspired him to get involved in real estate, sharing his AHA moment around the relationship between capital and impact. He opens up about the limiting beliefs he struggled with early on, describing the mindset shift that helped him get comfortable asking investors for very large sums of money. Listen in for Ellis’ insight on the power of community in real estate investing and learn how multifamily can give YOU the freedom to pursue your true calling.
