    Auditing your Next Investment with Maggie Cheung

    Auditing your Next Investment with Maggie Cheung

    Today's guest is Maggie Cheung. Maggie was born in Hong Kong and moved to the US with her family when she was four. She grew up helping her parents' Chinese takeout restaurant, which opened 364 days in the year. Her family instilled the practical values of hard work, savings, and frugality which she has carried throughout her life.
    As a career, she worked as an auditor in the Banking Industry for over 12 years and in early 2018 she made the decision to leave Wall Street so she can focus on her young family. During this period, Maggie took time to research and learn the different types of real estate investing where she discovered the power of real estate syndication. After performing her own due diligence on the operator and market, she took a calculated risk-based approach and invested in the first syndication deal.
    Since then, Maggie and her husband have invested in a total of seven deals across the South East US and have enjoyed the benefits of real estate syndication investments - leverage, cash flow, and tax savings. Maggie hopes to share their practical method of wealth building so others can have time to create meaningful life experiences with their family and loved ones.

    From Rigs to Real Estate with Collin Placke

    From Rigs to Real Estate with Collin Placke

    Collin Placke is an engineer, entrepreneur, and multifamily investor living in Denver, CO. After a decade of strenuous ups and downs in the "boom or bust" oil industry, Collin was finally able to find stability and peace of mind through investments in multifamily real estate. After building a portfolio of about 1000 units across the southeastern US, he discovered his true passion was helping other oil and gas professionals escape the vicious "boom or bust" cycle. Collin started the Rigs to Real Estate community to help oil and gas professionals create passive income, so they could stop worrying about oil prices and start building wealth through real estate.
