How to Build a Real Estate Empire in California with Aaron Mazzrillo

Episode: 116

Aaron Mazzrillo

Join David Pere and Aaron Mazzrillo as they talk about becoming an expert in your niche and staying true to what you want as a real estate investor.

 

Aaron served in the US Navy for six years before exploring a career in the real estate space. While working as an estimator for a construction company, he bought a pre-foreclosure listed house and worked on rehabbing it himself. He decided to quit his day job and go full time on real estate investing. Aaron is a licensed real estate broker, doing his own deals and managing his own company. He owns several houses and apartment buildings in Southern California and has also wholesaled and flipped hundreds of houses. He remains focused on his niche and his goal of flipping ten houses at a time, which he considers the sweet spot to his business’s operation.

 

In this episode, Aaron shares some solid advice on single-family investing, getting clear with your goals, having the right mindset about wealth, and living a happy and contented life. Stay tuned!

My name is David Pere, I am an active duty Marine, and have realized that service members and the working class use the phrase "I don't get paid enough" entirely too often. The reality is that most often our financial situation is self-inflicted. After having success with real estate investing, I started From Military to Millionaire to teach personal finance and real estate investing to service members and the working class. As a result, I have helped many of my readers increase their savings gap, and increase their chances of achieving financial freedom! - Click here to SUBSCRIBE: https://bit.ly/2Q3EvfE to the channel for more awesome videos!
