Key Takeaways:

 

"The main reason why I invested in real estate was basically for time and to have some options in my life. By making some extra cash flow and having some financial freedom down the road from real estate, I could do what I want with my time." - Demetri Boundris

 

"It [multifamily commercial properties] produces a little bit more cash flow as well like economies of scale so the more units, generally, really do that. That's one of the reasons why I do like it." - Demetri Boundris

 

"[His unfair advantage] I think it's finding creative ways to generate more income and properties that some others don't see, like, adding lockers, renting a garage on the property that someone didn't see the opportunity to do, and adding a laundry room." - Demetri Boundris

 

"Don't pass up on a good deal." - Demetri Boundris

 

"I don't think it's [real estate investing] for everybody, certainly being an active realtor. But I do think that to some degree, real estate investing can be for everybody. Some people may just want to do it passively. They just want to invest the money and let somebody else take care of everything else, but it certainly can do a lot for someone's life." - Demetri Boundris
