Ep372: Transforming Real Estate - Johnny Wolff's Co-living Revolution and Innovative Investment Journey
Johnny Wolff is the CEO and Founder of HomeRoom Coliving – one of the fastest-growing coliving companies in the United States. After starting his career as a financial analyst in Silicon Valley (EA, SanDisk, Guidespark), he relocated to Austin, Texas, to pursue real estate investing full-time.
His love for real estate investing and living with roommates motivated him to start HomeRoom in 2017 after an unusually terrible Craigslist roommate experience. In 2020, HomeRoom boasted 99% on-time rent payments, full occupancy, and zero evictions. Sales velocity for HomeRoom is up 300% in 2021, with hundreds of happy residents across 23 cities in 3 states.
HomeRoom recently expanded to Dallas and Austin, Texas, powered by investor funds. Johnny still lives in one of HomeRoom’s first coliving houses in Kansas City and enjoys hanging out and surviving the pandemic with his awesome roommates - especially on chicken wing Thursdays.
