#462 Learning to Invest and Manage Properties Remotely

Our guest for this week’s show is entrepreneur, real estate investment expert, and fellow podcaster, Michael Albaum. 

Michael is a real estate investor and Program Manager/Head Coach of Roof-stock Academy, which is one of the world’s leading real estate investment marketplaces and has exceeded more than $6 billion in transactions and continues to disrupt the industry with cutting-edge technology and innovations. 

In the last decade, Michael has done a variety of deals ranging from single-family homes to longer-term NNN lease properties with national chain tenants. After years of investing, he found his niche in long-distance, value-add multifamily investing. Michael recently left the 9-5 world and prior to the pandemic was traveling around the world with his wife, who is also able to work remotely.  


 “As I grew organically in the real estate space, my purview grew as well. And I found short-term rentals are an asset class that can make a lot of sense for a lot of people.”
