Raising Millions of Dollars (and 8 Kids!) After Dumping Her Day Job w/ Esther Reizes-Lowenbein


Raising capital for real estate investing is a far more useful skill than most people realize. If you have a strong knack for networking and the social skills to connect with many different individuals, you could be the exact piece that almost every investor is looking for. As more investors get into the hot commercial real estate market, they’ll need private capital to fund their deals. So who better than you to connect the investor and the deal finder for a piece of the cash flow pie?

If you’re worried about the time commitment of raising capital, let us introduce you to Esther Reizes-Lowenbein, who not only worked as a broker, capital raiser, and investor but also is raising her eight children while doing it. Fortunately for Esther, raising capital is something she loves to do, as she has a strong communication background with her former training in speech pathology.

If you’re getting the itch to start investing in bigger deals, but don’t know how to get started, Esther can help. She walks through the different roles in commercial real estate, whether to invest, syndicate, or stick with small deals, and how to become a capital raiser yourself (the right, legal way).

In This Episode We Cover:

General partners, limited partners, and every commercial real estate role in between

Whether to invest, syndicate, or continue to buy small deals yourself

How to legally (and ethically) become a great capital raiser

The biggest mistakes commercial brokers make early into their career

The hottest property types and which you should look into for 2022

The Achilles heel of most short-term rental deals 

And So Much More!
