    About Bobby Sharma:
    Bobby Sharma immigrated to the United States in 1984 and earned a degree in Computer and Information Science from the University of South Alabama. After graduating with an undergraduate degree in Computer & Information Science, Bobby found work as a software developer at first in Mobile, Alabama, and then in Southern California. However, Bobby always had a desire to work in Silicon Valley, so in 1999, moved to the Bay Area and in 2000, transferred to a very successful dot com company, WebEx. Since then, Bobby Sharma has worked for several successful startups and large technology companies such as GE, Mitsubishi Electric, Marketo, and TIBCO.
    Bobby Sharma bought his first house at the age of 24 in Riverside, CA, where he ‘house hacked’ the three bedrooms, two bath ranch house. In 2010 Bobby Sharma started buying more actively at the courthouse steps in San Jose and Oakland and got involved in Fix & Flip projects. Since 2010, Bobby has helped grow or launch several real estate companies, including Roof4All.com (helped grow it from 110 doors to 600 doors), BetterTurnKey.com (providing high-quality turnkey properties for cash flow and appreciation), and the latest venture BetterCapital.us (a PropTech startup focused on Asset Management, Education and Transaction Facilitation for real estate investors). Bobby is now focused on private money lending, helping people invest for cash flow, mentoring a handful of members, and focusing on syndicating real estate. In April 2019, Bobby Sharma ‘retired’ from his tech job to focus on investing in real estate full time and providing high-quality real estate and financial literacy-focused education to the members of his 5,000+ member real estate Meetup group (https://www.meetup.com/Bay-Area-Multifamily-Moguls/) and 5400+ members on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/2471420366432012/).
