TLP29: Working with the Right Real Estate Team with Reed Goossens

The Limited Partner - You can invest in Real Estate Private Equity!

One of the challenges of a limited partner is finding the right team to invest with. Today our guest, Reed Goossens, will discuss what an L.P. should look for when vetting an operator. Reed owns a multifamily syndication investing firm. Based on his vast experience as a syndicator and operator, Reed will teach us to ask the right questions and analyze how a team operates a deal. You’ll also hear about Reed’s personal story of how he started his real estate journey in Australia and then moved to the U.S. He will share how hiring a coach has helped him scale. His insights on mentorship could be the catalyst for your growth, so listen now! Key Points from This Episode: How the book Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki spurred Reed to take action and do a deal. Reading books, listening to podcasts, going to meetups, and surrounding yourself with like-minded people are the initial steps real estate investors can take at the beginning of their journey. Reed’s mindset at the beginning was to become an operator. He hired a coach when he wanted to take it to the next level. What’s the difference between hiring a mentor versus just trying to find someone to emulate? What should an L.P. be doing to vet an operator? A track record is essential, especially when you’re buying deals with cap rates that are less than interest rates. Talk to different operators – from the newest to the most experienced ones. Understand how they find and underwrite deals. Ask them about their projections. Are they looking to refinance? How are they getting the mid-teen IRR? Find out how safe your investment is in their deal. Tweetables: “Small actionable steps done consistently lead to good results.” [00:06:51] “[Hiring a mentor] is the act of taking a bet on yourself. You’re taking your own money and saying I’m worth going out and putting in, investing in myself to help get someone to look over my shoulder; getting someone to be that mentor to help me, guide me on my path towards where I want to go.” [00:14:14] “Over time, as you get track record, as you build a brand, as you build your systems internally, more people are attracted to you.” [00:18:01] “In the beginning, go out and vet a lot of operators, talk to them, understand their processes, understand how they’re finding deals, understand how they’re underwriting deals in today’s market.” [00:20:31] Links Mentioned Reed Goossens on LinkedIn Reed Goossens’ personal website Reed Goossens on Facebook Reed Goossens on Instagram Reed Goossens on YouTube Investing in the U.S. podcast Investing in the U.S. on Apple Podcasts About Reed Goossens Reed is a real estate entrepreneur, investor, author, public speaker, and an all-around good bloke!

One of his career highlights as a civil/structural engineer was being involved with the infrastructure development of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London. Reed has also worked worldwide as an engineer, including in Australia, NYC, Los Angeles, Fiji, and Europe. He moved to the U.S. in 2012 for the love of two things: his wife and the Big Apple, NYC! Within the first year of living in the U.S., he had purchased his first duplex for $38,000. This experience taught him the benefits of investing in cash flow in the U.S.  Reed has started two multifamily syndication investing firms that have acquired over $500 million worth of real estate. He has also launched the podcast, Investing in the U.S., where he interviews the cream of the crop within the real estate industry to educate better other investors who want to break into the U.S. market and start investing in multifamily real estate today.

058: Building A Robust Business through Branding with Reed Goossens

Real Estate Runway

There’s one thing the multifamily industry excels at that others don’t–its potential for growth. 2x best-selling author, multifamily syndicator, entrepreneur, and podcast host Reed Goossens is here to share this with us today. Reed emphasizes the importance of having a mindset that is not only focused on profitability, but on sustainability. He also discusses the need to have at least 500 units in one area before you can turn a profit, and how this is an economy-as-a-scale thing. Reed Goossens shares his story of success and how he has always been able to bounce back from failed ventures. He talks about the importance of betting on yourself and how it's important to have multiple income streams in order to recession-proof your business. Tune in to learn valuable lessons for anyone who is looking to take their business to the next level. [00:00 - 06:35] Opening Segment Welcoming Reed to the show Brief background Real estate in US versus in Australia [06:36 - 16:52] Building A Robust Business through Branding How to recession-proof your business with a strong personal brand and ecosystem Personal brand as key to building an investment portfolio Podcasting in building a reputation Creating an ecosystem of related businesses [16:53 - 25:55] Other Revenue Streams Property management is an overhead intensive business Renter’s insurance in house Cable income, trash valet, and bulk buying Being creative when assessing revenue-generating opportunities [25:56 - 30:16] Closing Segment Get to know Reed in the Quattro Trio!

It may not be a profit center, but it is an expense control center, which is very important as we come into very low interest, low cap rate environments where margins become a lot thinner." - Reed Goossens Connect with Reed through LinkedIn, Facebook, or visit www.reedgoossens.com LEAVE A 5-STAR REVIEW + help someone who wants to explode their business growth by sharing this episode.
