FBF #707: Police Officer Turned Real Estate Investor with More Than $200 Million in Acquisitions Under His Belt

Today’s Flash Back Friday episode is from #60 that originally aired on March 9th, 2015.

Our guest for this week’s show is Brian Burke who is the co-founder and managing director of Praxis Capital and CEO of Praxis Residential, which is a privately held RE investment firm based in Northern California who is active in both the single family and multi-family space and has completed well over $200 million in acquisitions.

Brian and his team have been absolutely kicking butt and during this interview Brian shares with us some of his secret sauce that has attributed to his success as an investor, but I’ll warn you ahead of time that the primary ingredients of this secret sauce are loads of hard work and thorough education. One of the most impressive parts of Brian’s story is how he started his professional career as a police officer and invested in real estate in his spare time. In fact, he worked a full-time job for a # of years before taking the leap of faith into becoming a full-time real estate investor.

  • The steps he took to self educate himself into becoming a real estate investor
  • Why he feels it’s critical to prove your investment concept with your own money before taking investors capital
