Episode Overview:

In today’s episode, we are joined by Lisa Hylton who brings together busy entrepreneurs and professionals to collectively invest in tax-efficient real estate opportunities. She does this through being a fund manager who builds relationships with expert, world-class operators who are at the top of their game and she creates a fund to invest alongside them. This way, investors can come into her fund and get access to these incredible investment opportunities.

We hear how Lisa first began investing passively in real estate and how this enabled her to transition from employee to entrepreneur. We also learn what inspired her to build a business that could provide opportunities to non-institutional investors to invest in this way. She explains how her business works, why she focuses on single-asset funds, the differences between syndications and funds, and how they are structured through Lisa’s business. Tuning in, you’ll also hear about Lisa’s mindset, how she defines success, why she believes coaching is worth the investment, and what you should look for in a coach. Lisa invested in five syndications that helped her transition from employee to entrepreneur. If you are looking for a passive income or even a career leap of your own, find out how you can do the same.
