Sam Grooms, Financial Advisor at Lifetime Financial Growth

On The Go with Sarah Jo

Today’s guest is a special one! We sit down with financial advisor, Sam Grooms (and my older brother!), to discuss some financial questions I have that will hopefully benefit everyone listening. I’ve navigated filing for an LLC and going from a salaried employee to 90% freelance all on my own, and there’s a handful of things I wish I had known along the way. So, my brother Sam sat down with me to discuss all things finance! He’s a certified Financial Advisor at Lifetime Financial Growth in Columbus, OH. There’s specific laws that dictate where he’s able to practice from state to state, but Sam shared his e-mail with us at the end of the episode if you do have any general questions. I’ve also linked his contact in the show notes. I hope you enjoy this episode as we grow on the go with Sam Grooms!

19: Everything You Need to Know About Multifamily Syndication With Ben Leybovich and Sam Grooms

Millennial Real Estate Investor

Ben Leybovich and Sam Grooms joined us for a great conversation on multifamily syndication. Ben has been investing in real estate since 2006 and is a frequent BiggerPockets blog contributor and a three time guest on the BiggerPockets podcast (along with at least a dozen other real estate podcasts). Sam is a CPA who, prior to joining WhiteHaven Capital, managed SEC reporting for a multi-billion dollar company and has invested in over $25 million worth of multifamily deals. Today, both are active multifamily syndicators who have a wealth of knowledge to share. We talk about why they love multifamily real estate, how to find good deals, and why the purchase cap rate doesn't matter (as long as you have a plan!).
