When an injury ended Patrick’s athletic career in college, he wasn’t sure what would come next.  Luckily, he had a friend in a similar position whose dad was there to give them guidance. He took them out to dinner and told them that just because their athletic careers were over didn’t mean their lives were, too.  He helped them get started in real estate investing by setting them up with their first fix and flip. They each netted $6K and Patrick was sold. 

From there, Patrick turned to another real estate guru for guidance—his uncle.  Back in the 1980s, his uncle bought a lot of property in Fort Collins, so he had Patrick start working for him as a leasing agent.  Patrick learned the ins and outs of managing properties and worked his way up over the next decade.  Now, Patrick runs his own brokerage and continues to invest, adding 1-2 units to his portfolio every year–he currently has $3MM in equity!  Learn more about his journey and what advice he has for anyone who wants to follow this path.
