Ep #67: Apartment, Student Housing, and SFR Investing all while working a Full-Time Job – with Mark Gagner

headshotThis week we speak with Mark Gagner who is founder of Bridge Equity Group, a multi-faceted real estate investment firm who specializes in medium and large size multi-family & student housing investments as well as high-end residential fix & flips.

Mark just started his real estate investing career 5 short years ago in 2010 and has since completed millions of dollars of flips as well as a few larger commercial acquisitions including a 172 unit apartment building as well as a 42 bed student housing property. He’s also learned the private capital game and was successful at raising a large chuck of the equity for the 172 unit apartment acquisition and this was all while still working a full-time job.
