Reed Goossens’ real estate investing journey first started back in 2009 when he picked up the little purple book “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki. This book opened his eyes to a world of entrepreneurship that he was not aware existed. Up until this point, he was a subscriber to the conventional 9-5 career path. Something inside of him didn’t want to comply with conventional norms, and that he knew he had more to give in his life than just sitting in a cubicle for the next 50 years of his life. He wanted to take control of his life and Rich Dad Poor Dad was the book that changed it all.
From Engineer to Investor
Reed’s background is in civil/structural engineering and he has over 9 years of professional experience before taking the plunge full time into real estate investing and development. In his former engineering life, one of the career highlights was being involved with the infrastructure development of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London. He has also worked all over the world as an engineer including in Australia, NYC, Los Angeles, Fiji, and Europe.
Then and Now
Reed has gone on to start two multifamily syndication investing firms that have been involved in the acquisition of over $500 mill worth of real estate to date. He has also launched the podcast Investing in the US, wherein he interview the cream of the crop within the real estate industry to better educate other investors who want to break into the US market and start investing in multifamily real estate today!
