Around the age of 13, Matthew Teifke saw his single mother start to invest in real estate and was immediately drawn to the industry. At the age of 17, he became a licensed realtor and worked through college at Texas A&M Corpus Christi. He earned his degree but made up his mind that real estate was the path for him. He went on to earn a Masters of Real Estate from Texas A&M in College Station and started a career in commercial real estate.

Alex Coffman has been passionate about real estate since his earliest years of growing up in Round Rock. He has always been an entrepreneur and worked for himself since the early age of 13. Alex first dove into real estate by managing administrative and maintenance tasks at a property management company in Corpus Christi. He later moved back to Austin, where he started two businesses in the recovery industry. Alex started to invest with Matt and grew their real estate partnership with over 30 units under contract and closed in their first couple of years together. In May of 2020, Alex officially became a partner at Teifke Real Estate, where he currently oversees the brokerage operations and the different branches of the company.

In this episode, Matthew and Alex share how their partnership has created a successful venture together with them spilling the best practices, a lifestyle they live, and the sacrifices they still make to this day.
