#35 Andrew Cushman: Value Adds & Resident Retention in Multi-Family Investing
“You don’t have to figure out anything new. It’s all been done before by lots of people. Just find a way to learn how someone else has already succeeded in what you want to do then copy that.” -Andrew Cushman
Today I am interviewing Andrew Cushman who is an investor in multi family syndication as well as provides high-yield multifamily investment opportunities to accredited investors. He is the founder of Vantage Point Acquisitions, has presented at my FIBI Pasadena Multi Family meeting, and is a frequent guest on the Bigger Pockets podcast.
Andrew Cushman: Graduated with a degree in chemical engineering, but soon realized he wanted a different way to earn income. After a few failed attempts at creating small business ideas, Andrew and his wife started flipping houses in 2007. They managed to successfully remain in real estate during and after the 2008 crash. Four years later in 2011 they began working in apartment syndications. Nine years later Andrew has acquired 1800 multifamily units and teaches a Mastermind Accelerator course that educates and prepares investors for the world of multi family real estate investing.
