He was personally responsible for closing deals in companies worth $3.0+ billion in India, China, Australia, and Korea with total equity deployed of $600+ million.

Swapnil graduated with honors from the University of Texas at Austin with a BBA in Finance.

In this episode Swapnil talks about how his entire business model is going against the crowd. He has been ceasing opportunities that most people have been running away from due to Covid like student housing and senior housing. He’s leveraged his buying power to take advantage of these overlooked opportunities while others have been chasing multifamily value add deals. He also shares how he uses his ability to purchase portfolios to wholesale or flip apartments in a really short time. Swapnil bought 4 properties in Las Vegas and sold them 6 months later while doubling his investors money. He has maintained his IIR of over 30% throughout his entire career. He has over 20,000 units and 2 billion in transactions under contract with a mix of multifamily, student housing, and senior housing units.
