Ep. 148: Turn Your Life Around through Multifamily with Agostino Pintus

Agostino Pintus was a C-Level Executive in the IT field in his late 20s, but in his early 30s, he received a box for his efforts to pack his belongings. What followed was a 10-year downward spiral until he realized the only thing keeping him afloat was his real estate portfolio. At that point, he decided to go all-in on multifamily. Over the last 20 months, he has acquired $40 million worth of multifamily in the Cleveland area as a general partner. In today’s episode, he shares what led to the downward spiral and how he recovered, why passive income is key for anyone with a day job, and how he manages his assets.
