In this interview Anna gives very actionable tips for scaling your business, moving from single family to multifamily, and from smaller deals to much, much larger deals.
This is the first podcast that Anna ever appeared in as a guest speaker, back in mid-2017. She sits down in the studio with Paul Peebles and Michael Becker to discuss her story of how she started in the multifamily business, and how she transitioned from investing passively to sponsoring her very first multifamily deal.
On this podcast, Raj shares details about his personal transition from working as an attorney for the US Navy to being an advisor to super-high net worth clients, and ultimately to being a large-scale real estate investor and syndicator. He also gives valuable insights on partnerships, overcoming fear, getting started in real estate, COVID, and where we are within the economic cycle currently.
In this episode, Anna chats with Rod Khleif about getting started with passive investing, identifying your strengths and weaknesses through a SWOT analysis, how to get over difficulty and discomfort and continue to grow, and how mindset, attitude, and passion can help you reach success. They also talk about how to find great deals through relationships, coming up with creative ways to structure a deal, and much more!
In this podcast episode, Anna discusses with Michael Blank her philosophy that you don’t make money in your comfort zone, and why it is important to push your limits once you achieve your initial goal. When things start to get difficult, this is when you really need to keep digging, as you are getting closer to the multifamily gold!

Past performance is not indicative of future results. All investments contain risk.
In this video interview from June 2019 with John Casmon, Raj shares his views with the audience on how all investment decisions should be made, namely how attractive they are from a risk vs. reward standpoint, and in the context of where we are in the economic cycle.

During this meet-up, Anna presents a case study of her first multifamily acquisition, one that she took full cycle in January, 2019.

There are also many great questions from the audience that were addressed as well.
During this highly anticipated meetup, Anna shares with the audience her experience with purchasing multifamily properties using a Tenants-in-Common (TIC) structure along with a 1031 tax-deferred exchange as some of the methods that she has successfully implemented in her multifamily business over the past 3 years that enabled her to enjoy impressive returns, and in a tax-advantaged way. This presentation generated a huge amount of interest from participants and all who watched via Facebook Live.
