Most real estate investors start with a single family home – not Brian Murray! His first real estate investment was a 50,000 square foot office building! In this episode, author and former teacher Brian Murray explains how he sought extra income to supplement his teaching salary and how commercial real estate investing became his solution and future career.
Brian Murray started Washington Street Properties in 2007 when he acquired his first investment property. Without raising any outside capital, Murray bootstrapped his way from newbie investor to the owner of a nationally recognized real estate investment and property management firm. He currently owns/manages over 300 doors valued at $35 million – 50 residential/50 commercial (retail and offices)
Washington Street Properties has been ranked on the Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies for the past three years in a row. The company’s success has been achieved through a value-added approach, focusing on the turnaround of distressed and under-performing properties.
Brian Murray is the author of Crushing It in Apartments and Commercial Real Estate: How a Small Investor Can Make It Big.
