Brian Burke is an extremely successful real estate investor with over 31 years of investing, the President and CEO of Praxis Capital, Inc., the author of The Hands-Off Investor: An Insider’s Guide to Investing in Passive Real Estate Syndications, and a public speaker that teaches others how to invest in multifamily real estate.

In our full-length episode with Brian, we went into a deep dive into how to become a hands-off investor while avoiding the common pitfalls that come with it. There were a lot of crucial points made in that episode, but this week, we’re bringing back the most important ones that we believe a lot of our listeners can learn from.

Listen to this quick yet informative episode as Brian and I talk about how to invest with the right people, the importance of diversification, and why you need to eliminate a single point of failure while investing in real estate.



1. The biggest mistake that investors can make is having a single point of failure.

2. Protect your downside to protect your upside.

3. Humans are often better than books when it comes to avoiding potential pitfalls.
