In this episode of Purpose-Driven Wealth, your host, Mo Bina, and Reed Goossens dive into the kind of journey it takes to move out of your W-2 and into real estate investing. For an engineer, career transitions can be all about risk assessment and analyzing the right actions to take. But for Reed, it also has to be about taking leaps of faith. Reed shares his experience with mentors, how he moved to America as an Australian real estate investor, his transition from the day job to investing, and the motivation behind his two books: Investing in the U.S. – The Ultimate Guide to U.S Real Estate and 10,000 Miles to The American Dream.

About Reed Goossens:
Reed’s background in civil/structural engineering has gone over 9 years of professional experience before taking the plunge full-time into real estate investing and development. In his former engineering life, one of his career highlights was being involved with the infrastructure development of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London. Reed has also worked all over the world as an engineer, including in Australia, NYC, Los Angeles, Fiji, and Europe.
He moved to the U.S. in 2012 for the love of two things: Firstly, his wife (at the time his G.F.), and secondly, the big apple, NYC! Within the first year of living in the US, Reed purchased his first duplex for $38,000. This experience taught him a lot about the benefits of investing for cash flow in the U.S. Barriers to entry are a lot lower compared to his homeland of Australia.
Since that time, Reed has started two multifamily syndication investing firms that have been involved in the acquisition of over $500 million worth of real estate to date. He has also launched the podcast Investing in the U.S., wherein he interviews the cream of the crop within the real estate industry to better educate other investors who want to break into the U.S. market and start investing in multifamily real estate today!
