S1E88: Investing for Families: Building a Successful Multifamily Real Estate With Reed Goossens
Jan 4, 2023 36 min

Episode Description

Chad Sutton welcomes back entrepreneur and real estate investor Reid Goossens to discuss multi-family real estate investing, life with a new baby, navigating the current market conditions, and strategies for success. With his background in real estate, Reid shares his insights on striking a balance between family, business, and health. They also dive into the impact of the Federal Reserve's decision to raise interest rates over the past year and how these changes are affecting the multifamily space. Whether you’re an experienced investor or just starting in the real estate world, tune in for this valuable conversation that will help move your business forward!

In 2012, Reed quit his job in Australia and moved halfway across the globe to the US to change his life, and chase a dream. With limited funds, no investing experience, and no credit, Reed went from purchasing a small duplex to growing his real estate investment firm, SN Property Group. Reed now syndicates large multi-million dollar deals across the U.S.: he has now achieved financial freedom and taken control of his life.
