Multifamily Growth Hack with Joe Walsh and Kent Frayn, Episode 152

December 31, 2019

 

How do you jump into multifamily and quickly build credibility to grow?

After launching a successful eCommerce site called DropCatch, Joe Walsh and Kent Frayn faced this challenge. They had built a portfolio of smaller multifamily properties before turning to a growth hack to scale quickly and add credibility. They knew their own experience was limited so they added an experienced mentor to their team to launch HomeCatch Holdings.

In this episode, Joe and Kent share the inspiration for the initial eCommerce business, the transition into real estate, best practices for securing mentors and partners, and other tips to get into multifamily syndication.
