Nice to meet you!

Several years ago, we were newlyweds working as full-time hospitalists. On paper, it looked like we had everything: the prestigious careers, the happy marriage, the luxurious rental home, the cars, etc.

But in reality? Despite having worked for years, we had very little savings. Despite our high income, we had very little freedom in terms of time or money. Despite working 80+ hours a week, we weren’t getting ahead financially–and we barely saw each other.

We thought “is this it?” We had worked our whole lives to get where we were, to become doctors, but we weren’t living the life we truly wanted. We decided to take back our freedom. To live life on our terms. But with a twist: we weren’t going to sacrifice our income.
So we looked to those other tried-and-true financial strategies for achieving FIRE (Financial Independence, Retire Early). You know,

  • Saving money aggressively
  • Working even more shifts
  • Pouring money into stock market accounts

Those positions would get us to
financial freedom... in 20+ years.

And we just didn’t want to wait that long.

That’s when we discovered the strategy that would get us to financial freedom in less than 5 years:

investing in cashflowing rentals.

We started by buying small multi-family properties with “hidden value” at the right price and then made them cashflow significant amounts each month while taking advantage of real estate professional tax status (REPS). Each year we took all the income from our rentals, any savings we had, and the tax refund check we received from the IRS and re-invested it into buying more properties.

get ready for a life OF fewer working hours, EARNING more income and HAVING MORE FREE time

we’re on a mission

We’ve helped thousands of people unlock financial freedom through real estate investing, so they can truly enjoy their lives, their time with their children and contribute on a different level to others.

and we want the same for you

We call it the Fast FIRE System, a proven approach that propels 
you towards financial freedom by generating a reliable, significant source of monthly income using real estate investments.
