How To Build a Real Estate Empire With Your Significant Other

How To Build a Real Estate Empire With Your Significant Other

Have you ever looked at your significant other and wanted to build an empire with them? That’s exactly what Nicky and RJ De Leon have been doing since the early days of their relationship. 

Today, they tell their story from start to current day, diving into how they had all those hard conversations about deciding on the first location, getting on the same page as your partner and so on. Since that initial househack, they moved on into bigger projects but not alone. Listen to how they went about networking and building those partnerships that helped propel them further. All that they have accomplished has also been with full time jobs. Listen to their journey and leave us some feedback.

Podcast key points:

  • Differences in due diligence between the 3 unit and 6 unit buildings
  • Tips for Househackers
  • Networking and building partnerships
