Ep 147: Growing Your Business in Multi-Family Real Estate with Abel Pacheco
On today’s episode of Real Estate Investing Experience, we speak with Abel Pacheco from Texas about his business 5TCRE and the success he’s had with multi-family real estate and investing. Abel shares how he got his start in the tech sector and working in IT and how he made the transition to working in real estate and investing full time. Abel lays out his mission to educate the broader public on the investment opportunities in multi-family real estate for reliable and scalable investments. We talk about expanding one's business and Abel recounts how he transitioned from doing one-off deals to a fund structure. We also speak with Abel about his first deal in syndication, why it was his most difficult capital raise, and why he’s looking forward to the next one despite the challenge. Abel explains how he gave people the confidence to commit to his deal by setting out low expectations with big benefits if things go according to plan, as well as providing them with the opportunity to invest in something of significant scale with considerably less capital than normal.
