Josh Sterling would tell his 17-year-old self to skip school and get directly into real estate. Instead, he pursued a career as a commercial airline pilot, eventually rising to the rank of Captain. Today, Josh pursues real estate full-time, growing his portfolio to over 260 units and built out his own property management business to boot. In this episode, he walks us through his first deals in the single-family space, how he bought these properties on his credit card, and how that struggle inspired him to do multifamily. He also talks about building relationships with brokers, describes how he scaled his multifamily business, explains his approach to multifamily syndication, and describes his creative finance methods!
