    From Short-Term Rentals to Syndications with Suja Shyam

    From Short-Term Rentals to Syndications with Suja Shyam

    Join Daniel Nickles and Suja Shyam as they discuss her journey from short-term rentals to syndications. Suja believed that people should remember that there is always a way and put into action the wisdom they learn along the way. This mantra propelled her to start in real estate investment using her student loan. From the first two-bedroom house deal that she rented out to owning an Airbnb, she realized that this portfolio takes some of her time, attention, and energy, and though it is passive, it is semi-passive. This realization led her to invest in real estate syndications so her net worth could go up and her wealth could snowball. If you want to learn more about how Suja did it, tune in, and enjoy! 
    Outline of the episode… 
    How she got into real estate 
    Why did she decide to build her own business? 
    The fundamental investing tenant of real estate syndications. 
    The importance of portfolio diversification within real estate syndications. 
    How to diversify across asset classes 
    And more! 
    About Suja Shyam… 
    Luxe Capital was founded by Suja Shyam, an accomplished multifamily underwriter passionate about bringing the real estate wealth-building model to hard-working, busy people. 
    While working to fund affordable housing developments for nearly seven years, she began to replace her income by building a small but mighty short-term rental portfolio in Portland, Oregon. Reaching financial independence in her early 30s was an important milestone for her. There is nothing she gets more excited about than helping others who have a similar desire to spend more time with their kids, family, and friends. While working in Affordable housing finance, Suja discovered the power of commercial real estate, specifically investing in Apartment Communities. 
    Luxe Capital partners with successful and experienced industry operators to bring the best deals to its investors. Founded on a solid background in financial analysis, Suja is passionate about helping people on their financial journey, whatever their goals and dreams may be.
