Steve Rozenberg is an airline pilot, author, and investor. He created and built a property management company and merged it with Mynd Property Management in 2019. He currently holds the position of Vice President Investor Education, which is focused on educating investors on goal-setting and strategies.
Years ago, Steve thought he was ‘set’ and had the safest and most secure job as an airline pilot. And then, the 911 tragedy happened, which shocked the world and affected many lives. Steve was not an exception and he lost his job.
That’s when he realized he needed to be in charge of his destiny and right there he promised himself that he wouldn’t let anything to control his finances and future. That’s when Steve shifted to real estate investing and did everything to learn the industry. But it was not an easy feat, and he made mistakes and lost money along the way. Now he is an accomplished real estate investor, owning dozens of real properties, apartment complexes, and has also flipped and wholesaled hundreds of properties in Texas.

“I love flying. I would never give it up. I still fly for an airline, and I love it. But I also realize that I cannot let someone else or something else be in charge of my destiny, and not be in control of my own future and my finances just because I’m employed by someone. It doesn’t mean that they’re responsible for taking care of me, which is a different way of thinking, then I grew up.” – Steve Rozenberg
“I’ve been very, very fortunate. And I believe that the biggest reason is because I’ve learned that this is a business. And I’ve learned the hard way by getting taken advantage of, lost a lot of money, all those things. But I don’t think if I had not done that and learned those valuable lessons, I don’t think I would be here today.” – Steve Rozenberg
“I think it’s more important to ask yourself the “why” and nobody really takes the time to ask themselves.” – Steve Rozenberg
“The great thing about real estate is there are no rules. You can flip, you can wholesale syndicate, you can, you could do whatever you want. That’s a great thing. The bad thing is there are no rules. You can flip, you can wholesale, you can do whatever you want. There are too many choices.” – Steve Rozenberg
“The challenges when they get into real estate, is they’re waiting for someone to give them that advice. They’re waiting for that one word or phrase of advice. And I tell people that don’t exist. You being successful is made up of a lot of good decisions, not one great decision. So, there’s not one great thing that you’re going to do today that’s going to get you across the goal line. It’s a matter of doing things good consistently, and it’s not perfection. It’s persistence.” – Steve Rozenberg
“People get so focused to shoot holes in theories. Everybody has their moon. Everybody has their end destination. But you’ve got to make sure that you can clearly identify it.” – Steve Rozenberg
