My guest today started investing in Real Estate by buying and selling over 100 single family homes before transitioning into multifamily. Within 3 years he went from owning zero to 300 units across the country!
Sterling White is an investor and business owner on a mission to make the world a better place through principled and efficient real estate investment. He's also helped other investors raise money for their deals and attract private money through a software platform he co-developed called "Syndication Pro".
Today Sterling and I discuss how he was able to grow his portfolio so quickly, and the differences he sees between fixing & flipping and owning multifamily. Sterling also has some great stories on the methods he uses to build rapport with sellers and investors, and how a 'thank-you' card helped him beat out multiple higher offers.
Sterling will also share why he avoids brokers and prefers to find off-market deals. We'll also talk about syndication and why he helped design and build an on-line investor portal to make the process more efficient and profitable.
Sterling shares a lot of great knowledge in this conversation that will be helpful to anyone looking to find off-market deals or raise money from investors. You can contact Sterling through email or his website:
