Key Takeaways: 

“Real estate investing is a very viable and phenomenal way of building wealth.” – Daniel Kwak 

“Right now, I’m more focused on recruiting potential passive investors. Because I think there’s a lot of things up in the air right now. And I don’t think it’s a great time to buy. Others may see it from a different standpoint, but just based on my opinion, and the research I’m doing and the people I’ve talked to, I don’t think it’s a great time.” – Daniel Kwak 

“For the short term for us, it’s organizing and raising capital, focusing on education. And in about six months, we’re looking to be a little bit more aggressive with purchasing multifamily.” – Daniel Kwak 

“I’d recommend a lot of people take that route. It’s a very unpopular route.  I spent three years shadowing people, learning, buying every single possible course I could on real estate, reading as many books and podcasts and it paid off for me. That first deal was a portfolio, four single-family houses.” – Daniel Kwak 

“I found a very interesting way to create win-win scenarios where individuals would invest in deals that I would find through other individuals. And I would pretty much syndicate the funds and do put a lot of the sweat equity.” – Daniel Kwak 

“I always recommend finding out what your value propositions are. And what a value proposition is, the two to three things that you do very, very well. You can write down, sit down, and have a list of three, five things, maybe even nine to 10 things that they enjoy doing that they’re good at. And they can formulate their blueprint on how to scale their portfolio around that.” – Daniel Kwak
