Two years ago, Will Harvey thought that only people with millions of dollars could own apartment buildings. And then he started listening to podcasts and reaching out to other entrepreneurs and real estate investors. Their stories broke the ceiling on what he thought was possible, and by the end of 2019, Will was able to quit his W-2 job and pursue multifamily full time.
At just 26 years of age, Will is the Vice President of CEO Capital Partners, a real estate acquisition firm focused on multifamily. A veteran of the residential mortgage business, Will earned National Rookie of the Year honors in 2017 and operated in the top 5% at one of the largest retail lenders in the US. Now, he controls over $1.5M of real estate in Northern Virginia. Will is also the cohost of Wealth Junkies, a podcast dedicated to sharing the stories of successful entrepreneurs and liberating 1,000 people from the rat race.
On this episode of the podcast, Will joins me to talk about how being hell bent on getting OUT of his W-2 job led him to real estate investing. We discuss how Will leveraged multifamily podcasts to turn his car into a mobile university, how he found his joint venture partners, and what steps he took to quit his 9-to-5 at the end of 2019. Listen in for Will’s insight on building the Wealth Junkies platform and get his advice on surrounding yourself with people who’ve done what you want to do.
