    RG280 - Investing in Real Estate as a First-Generation Immigrant – w/ Perry Zheng

    Cash Flow Portal founder and CEO Perry Zheng is on the show with us this week. Join us as we talk about his journey from being a first-generation immigrant to a successful real estate syndicator, as well as how Cash Flow Portal came to be so successful in such a short amount of time.

    Perry Zheng is the founder and CEO of Cash Flow Portal, a real estate syndication software that helps real estate syndicators raise money, streamline operations, and reach out to more investors. To date, they have over 1,500 units and have raised over $16 million dollars. Perry himself is a lead syndicator with 580 units in his portfolio. He was also a full-time engineering manager at Lyft just recently quit his day job to focus on real estate.

    Perry is a first-generation immigrant who grew up in a hardworking family. Growing up, he realized that working smarter bears more fruit than working harder. After getting a good education, working his way up the career ladder, and creating Cash Flow Portal, Perry decided to pour his time into real estate—particularly syndications.

    In this episode, Perry shares his insights on career growth, starting out in the real estate industry, and what it’s like to work towards success as an immigrant in the US. We also deep dive into how he built Cash Flow Portal, which is a relatively new company (but is already achieving 80% to 100% growth week-to-week), and how they managed to thrive in the middle of a global pandemic.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    1. Work smarter, not harder.
    2. You shouldn’t be looking too far into the future; don’t underestimate what you can do in the long term.
    3. Enjoy the journey; focus on what you can control.
    4. Networking is an important tool for education and building experience aside from making connections.

    RG278 - Investing in Senior Living: Helping Investors & Seniors at The Same Time – w/ Loe Hornbuckle

    RG278 - Investing in Senior Living: Helping Investors & Seniors at The Same Time – w/ Loe Hornbuckle

    This week, we tackle a particularly interesting field of real estate that we don’t often get to talk about: senior housing. Join Loe Hornbuckle and I as we talk about the different types of senior living, innovating senior care, and many other aspects of senior living real estate.

    Loe Hornbuckle is the CEO of Sage Oak Assisted Living and Memory Care and a co-founder of GoodHorn Capital, a real estate investment firm that helps investors achieve financial freedom and create long-term value by owning and repositioning real estate. He is passionate about improving the living experience of residents in assisted living facilities by providing quality care and leveraging the advantages of scale.

    For this episode, Loe walks us through the different types of senior living facilities, their scaling strategies for these facilities, the operational side of senior living management, and the many different ways Loe and Goodhorn Capital helps improve the lives of the elderly.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    1. Senior living is composed of many different types; memory care, assisted living, skilled nursing facilities, etc.
    2. Big senior living facilities are not always the best places to receive elderly care.
    3. Being present is one of the best ways to optimize operations and maintain control.
    4. Systematizing operations is not always the best way to prevent abuse in senior facilities—but hiring good quality people is.

    RG277 - Helping Medical Professionals Invest in Passive Income – w/ Savannah Arroyo

    RG277 - Helping Medical Professionals Invest in Passive Income – w/ Savannah Arroyo

    We have a very unique guest for this week’s show. Join us on this episode where we interview Savannah Arroyo, also known as the Networth Nurse, and learn more about how she became a real estate investor while being a full-time registered nurse.

    Savannah Arroyo is a full-time registered nurse from Los Angeles, California. From the start, she has always been drawn to leadership positions; serving committees, leading process improvement initiatives, and helping solve critical situations. However, she found that her income from nursing did not meet her desire for financial flexibility. She started investing in multifamily syndications, and the rest is history.

    Now, Savannah is a successful real estate investor, particularly in the multifamily field. She established her brand The Networth Nurse, where she helps busy medical professionals create passive income through investing in real estate.

    A unique business in and of itself, Savannah paves the way for busy medical professionals to find financial freedom for themselves. She is also not selfish with her knowledge, and her website’s landing page speaks for itself.

    In this episode, learn more about how Savannah came to be the Networth Nurse, why she was drawn to multifamily syndications in the first place, and how she managed to become a successful real estate investor without leaving her main career.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    1. Be more intentional with your time, whether you are at work or at home.
    2. Being genuine can make it easier to transition into the role of a capital raiser.
    3. Understanding your market is imperative to business success.
    4. You don’t have to be an expert at multifamily investing in order to start.

    RG276 - How Canadians Can Access The US Real Estate Market – w/ Ava Benesocky and August Biniaz

    We have not one—but two guests for you guys this week. Let’s listen to the story of Ava Benesocky and August Biniaz of the Canada-based real estate investment firm, CPI Capital.

    Ava Benesocky and August Biniaz are the founders and CEOs of CPI Capital, a real estate investment company that focuses on helping both US and Canada-based investors find opportunities in the US multifamily market. With both having started as real estate agents, Ava and August put their skills, knowledge, and experience together to turn CPI Capital into what it is today.

    In this episode, we get the low-down on how Ava and August built CPI Capital, as well as how they gained interest in the US market in the first place. They also talk about how they chose the right corporate structure in Canada vs. the US, with each having its unique pros and cons.

    Ava and August also talk about the challenges that they have encountered in the business, including—surprisingly—having too-high returns. And since CPI Capital is a young company, the two CEOs also let us in on their future plans to scale.

    If you are in Canada or in another part of the world and are interested in investing in the US market, this episode can give you valuable insights on what it’s like being a foreign investor.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    1. Some Canadian investors can qualify for certain US tax benefits, depending on their investment plans.
    2. In the private equity space, the general partner’s compensation is relative to their performance and the asset’s performance.
    3. When the real estate industry is not ideal in your country, it may be time to invest in a foreign land.
    4. Currently, the US can be regarded as the country with the highest yield in the West.
