Are you surrounding yourself with people who will get you to the next level?

Five years ago, a group of seasoned multifamily investors got together and established a Mastermind to support each other as we scale our real estate businesses.

And I’m proud to be part of that group with Matt Faircloth, who’s been in real estate full-time since 2005

Matt serves as Owner of DeRosa Group, a multifamily investing firm with a portfolio of 1,800-plus units and $150 million in assets under management.

Matt is also the author of the Amazon bestseller Raising Private Capital: Build Your Real Estate Investing Empire with Other People’s Money.

On this episode of Financial Freedom with Real Estate Investing, Matt and I discuss the opportunities we see coming in the multifamily market.

Matt describes the properties in his portfolio that are doing well versus the properties that are struggling, and we brainstorm strategies for dealing with rising insurance rates for multifamily.

Listen in as Matt shares his vision for scaling DeRosa Group and learn about the personal disciplines that contribute to his success!
