“I learned much about home design from my dad who was an architect, which helped me develop a passion for the business. I began my career as a Senior Project Manager at Ahmanson Developments in the 1980s and provided financing to major developers, locally and nationally. I evaluated business practices, observed winners and losers, and achieved an insider’s perspective regarding real estate management. I served as Vice President of Cambridge Homes where I helped develop new products, managed marketing and sales, and increased profits and grew annual sales making Cambridge the largest builder in Chicago. My experience also includes serving as President of Westfield Homes, quickly turning the company’s operating losses into profits. I joined with Buz Hoffman in the late 1990s as Executive Vice President of Lakewood Homes. Benefiting from a career involving experience within all aspects of the industry, I participated in Lakewood’s growth as it became a top Chicago-area builder with annual closings beyond 1,700 units and profits higher than industry averages.”

Low Barrier to Entry into U.S. Real Estate Market

Chris Prefontaine is a bestselling author and real estate investor with over

26 years of experience in the field, including 18 years as a builder, realtor,

broker/owner and investor.. He’s always been an entrepreneur even when

he didn’t know it.  When he used to drag his wagon up to the street corner

and sell junk from his closet or when he used to purchase gum by the pack

and sell by the slice in middle school.

In 1991, Chris began building homes and built 100 homes before starting

his own brokerage.  He then become a broker/owner and was selling 100

homes a year with his small team.  Since the 2008 debacle he realized he

needed to reinvent his business so that he no longer had to use his own

Reed came to the U.S. from Australia in 2012 to pursue a career in structural engineering and discovered that we have a much lower barrier to entry to begin investing in real estate here than back home.  After buying a triplex and a few duplexes, Reed decided it would be much quicker to scale up his rents and values by buying hundreds of units at a time.  Fast forward a few years and Reed now only buys large multi family assets exceeding a few hundred units per deal.  We dissect his most recent acquisition on today’s show-a 253 unit building in San Antonio Texas which he is going to turn around and exit in about 5 years for more than a $10M projected profit.

More than the Money

Omar Khan comes from an institutional investment banking background, having advised on $3.7 Billion of capital financing & M&A transactions.  He’s completed numerous multi-million dollar syndication deals and targets deal hold times of 3-5 years before exit.  While most people talk about “raising the money” to do deals, Omar focuses much attention on the more important aspects of the deal during this episode: the Team who’s married to the deal for the 3-5 years.  If you invest your money passively, you obviously better have a good deal to start with, but a top notch operating partner/team is ESSENTIAL to your money’s survival (let alone growth!!).
