Zen and the Art of Real Estate Investing with Jonathan Greene

131: Disrupting the Construction Industry by Modernizing Manufacturing with Damion Lupo


Aside from the invention of the nail gun, technology has remained relatively unchanged in the last 75 years when it comes to constructing real estate. One company is trying to change that and make the industry more efficient and less wasteful.

On today’s episode of Zen and the Art of Real Estate Investing, Jonathan’s guest is Damion Lupo, the Chief Investment Officer of FrameTec. Over the last 30 years, Damion has owned more than 65 companies and personally purchased over 150 houses, apartment complexes, and condos in seven states. He has a long history in real estate, and with FrameTec, he’s modernizing manufacturing and disrupting the construction industry.

Jonathan and Damion begin their conversation by outlining how FrameTec is disrupting the construction business, the gap it’s filling, and why it’s causing both excitement and panic. You’ll hear what losing everything during the 2008 crash taught Damion, how a lack of patience can be detrimental in this business, and two things you can do to avoid making drastic investing mistakes. He also shares where to look for people you can trust and learn from, how to avoid FOMO, and why you should never be afraid to do the work. Finally, Damion outlines the scope of FrameTec, how it will revolutionize real estate, and the huge problem FrameTec is set to solve.
