Zen and the Art of Real Estate Investing with Jonathan Greene

021: The Backstage Guide to Real Estate Investing with Matt Picheny


One common theme among real estate investors is that they stay working at their job until they’re able to do real estate full-time. You obviously need capital to do the investment. But aside from that, there are a couple of other things you have to consider to ensure your success in the real estate investing space before fully diving in.


In today’s episode, Matt Picheny, a real estate investor, author, and Tony Award winner, talks about only doing real estate as a hobby for 10 years until he started doing it full-time. Since then, Matt has focused on developing passive income streams that enable investors to write their own stories and choose how they want to spend their time.


With over 15 years of experience, Matt is revitalizing and elevating communities through real estate investment, having invested in over 10,000 apartments nationwide. 


Matt’s best-selling book, “Backstage Guide to Real Estate,” was written with the passive investor in mind. He makes it palatable for people to read so people who are looking to passively invest in deals are able to understand deals well enough and be able to make sound decisions.


In this episode, you will hear:

  • His introduction to real estate investing

  • Passive vs. active investing

  • Identifying properties to invest in

  • What led him to syndications and a look into his deals

  • Building your group of investors

  • What passive investors can get from his book
