How to Create a Mastermind for Multifamily with Reed Goossens, Episode 191



With no investing experience, no credit, and limited funds, Reed Goossens left his home in Australia and moved to the US in 2012. He started with a duplex in upstate NY, before moving into larger apartments. To make the leap, he surrounded himself with mentors, peers, and partners, to refine and shape his approach. Reed is the Managing Partner of Wildhorn Capital, controlling over $175 million in apartments. Reed is also the author of two best-selling books and host of the Investing in the US podcast.


In this episode, Reed shares how he got his start and the challenges he overcame as an Australian investing in US real estate. He shares how mastermind groups have been vital to his growth as an investor and provides tips for anyone looking to create their own group. Reed also shares how to get started in apartment syndication and how he and his partner built a successful business with 1,700 doors under management.
