Anthony Metzger had never done a real estate deal in his life. He literally had ZERO experience, but after listening to a podcast about apartment syndication he knew he wanted to do something big.

So, he found a private equity firm that was actively syndicating deals, reached out to them, and asked how he could add value. Their answer was to find an apartment building that met their investment criteria. He spent the next year and a half educating himself, calling brokers, sourcing deals, underwriting deals, and making offers. 18 months later, he presented a deal to the syndication firm and they closed on it.

This was his first deal ever, and it was a 218-unit apartment complex that they purchased for $11M!

In my conversation with Anthony, you’ll learn exactly how he was able to make it happen, despite not having any credibility, leverage, or experience.
