If you are here listening to this podcast, you are probably tired of flipping properties each and every month. I am so excited that you are here, and I am so excited to help you think a little bit bigger and focus on multifamily apartment buildings. For me, the shift came when I asked, “how can I own apartment buildings?” I am here to help you make that mindset shift that will help you to think bigger and to invest bigger. I’m also going to be sharing a lot of secret techniques with you.

In the last episode, I talked about the big picture, I shared my story, and we talked about why you should invest in apartments and the three ways to get paid when investing in apartments. The first episodes of these podcasts are going to be pillar podcasts. There are really six secret pillars for cash flowing apartments. In future episodes, I’ll be talking about the secrets of finding apartment deals, analyzing apartment deals to make money, making offers, funding deals, and how to become a great operator. Today, I am going to talk about discovering the secret language of apartments.
