On this episode of the InvestFourMore Real Estate Podcast, I have a great conversation with Abhi Golhar. Abhi has become a fantastic investor who flips more than 30 houses per year, but this number did not come easily. It took him years of mentorship, moving around the country, and near successes before he made it. Abhi found success not from finding the right strategy but from finding the right attitude. He started investing in 2002, but he did not realize true success until almost ten years later. During that decade of trying, he never gave up. How did Abhi get started investing in real estate? Abhi attended the University of Michigan where he pursued a degree in electrical engineering. He was a decent student but always wanted to be an entrepreneur.

Shortly after entering the world of real estate, he met a couple of real estate investors from Detroit. When he was 18, he started investing in notes and bought a flip and a rental. His investing did not go as planned. He made no money on his flips and barely broke even on a rental property after experiencing a water disaster. He escaped his first venture into real estate without losing any money, but he gained a lot of knowledge. After college, Abhi moved to Nebraska to chase a girl. At a real estate investor networking event in Nebraska, he met one of his mentors. Afterword, Abhi learned about wholesaling. He also learned that rejection is good. The more you're rejected, the better the chance the next person will say yes! Abhi started knocking on doors to find motivated sellers. He was making money by wholesaling a few houses and finding deals for his mentor. Yet Abhi was not yet setting the real estate world on fire, so he moved to Missouri to learn from another mentor. It was now 2007, and he lived with an investor who was developing land. Abhi was making a little money wholesaling, and he was selling cars on eBay to make ends meet. Eventually, he moved to Atlanta to follow another mentor he had met. How to get started investing in real estate. How did Abhi turn the corner in his real estate
