Real estate investors come in many different shapes and sizes. Some young, some older. Some with financial resources, others without. But the one thing they ALL have in common is hustle. They balance learning with DOING, taking action to achieve their dreams of financial freedom through multifamily. David Kamara was working a demanding job in management consulting, traveling as much as 48 weeks a year. In an effort to spend more time with his family, David enlisted the help of a mentor to fast-track his real estate career and closed on his first 40-unit multifamily deal in October of 2018. Within a year, David had replaced his income, and today, he has a portfolio of 247 units. He runs his own management consulting business as well as Cape Sierra Capital, an apartment building investing firm that focuses on undervalued multifamily properties in the Midwest and Southeast US. On this episode, David joins me to explain how his daughters inspired him to make time for multifamily and what he did to get started.  He walks us through his first 40-unit deal, discussing how having a mentor helped get brokers to take him seriously. David also shares his experience with the Law of the First Deal, explaining how he had two more deals under contract within two months of closing! Listen in for David’s advice to aspiring multifamily investors and learn his action-oriented approach to achieving financial freedom—with or without financial resources of your own!
