Ep 60: Buying a New Deal is Buying a New Business with Dan Handford

Today we have Dan Handford from and Multifamily Investor Nation back on the show to take a closer look at his journey into real estate and catch up on more recent developments in his business! We have a great chat with Dan today all about growing wealth through real estate, the business of syndication, and learning how to delegate! We begin by discussing how Dan built up his first business in the chiropractic field while in college and got into real estate investing after hitting seven figures in year two to reduce his taxable liability. This leads to a focus on the pros and cons of partnering with investors for buying bigger deals and we talk to Dan about why he chose turn syndication into a business. Our guest weighs in how his decision fits into ideas of syndication not being for everybody and that he makes smarter decisions when other people’s money is involved. We turn our attention to the different ways Dan likes to find new investors and build trust with current ones using different channels for communication and education. From there, we chat with Dan about the lessons his first business taught him and he talks about the value of partnering up and hiring so that he can focus on the best use of his time. For all this and more from a visionary founder and CEO, tune in today!
