How did you hear about The Real Estate Physician?
I first heard about The Real Estate Physician on a Facebook group and was really impressed with the knowledgeable answers provided by Cherry Chen, MD regarding evaluating different real estate investment options.
What made you want to diversify your portfolio with commercial real estate?
My husband and I are both in medicine and recently paid off our super-sized student loans (best day ever!). As we moved forward, we started to look beyond traditional retirement plans for portfolio options that provide passive income. Multi family commercial real estate is a great way to help us move toward financial freedom.
Have you had prior experience investing in commercial real estate syndications before signing up with The Real Estate Physician?
The Real Estate Physician provides much more than a connection to the commercial real estate world. Having started my education with books and podcasts on investment options in real estate, I looked through everything from single family rentals to crowd funded real estate but felt I didn’t have to tools to evaluate the investments. The Real Estate Physician provided the material to help improve my knowledge base. I now feel much more confident when a commercial real estate syndication opportunity arises.
What suggestions do you have for physicians in getting started in commercial real estate syndications?
For physicians who are interested in commercial real estate syndications, I would suggest starting with close look at your individual goals for investing. Determine whether you are looking for capital gains or passive income. Then get educated about your options such as commercial real estate syndication at The Real Estate Physician.
What does financial independence look like to you?
Financial Independence will be the freedom to work on my own terms, providing for my family now and in the future. It’s something that is, for now, a goal but one that we are closer to today.
