G’day! My name is Reed Goossens, thanks for stopping by and checking out our website. I am a real estate investor, entrepreneur, author, public speaker and all-round good bloke!
My real estate investing journey first started back in 2009 when I picked up the little purple book “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki. This book opened my eyes to a world of entrepreneurship that I was not aware existed.
Up until this point I was a subscriber to the conventional 9-5 career-path. Something inside of me didn’t want to comply to conventional norms, and that I knew I had more to give in my life then just sitting in a cubicle for the next 50 years. I wanted to be more, do more, but most importantly I wanted to take control of my life and Rich Dad Poor Dad was the book that changed it all.
My background is in civil/structural engineering and I have over 9 years of professional experience before taking the plunge full time into real estate investing and development.
I moved to the US in 2012 for the love of two things: Firstly, my wife (at the time my girlfriend) and secondly the big apple, NYC! Within the first year of living in the US I had purchased my first duplex for $38,000 all cash. This experience taught me a lot about the benefits of investing for cashflow here in the US. Barriers to entry are a lot lower compared to my homeland of Australia.
Since this time, I have gone on to start Wildhorn Capital, a multi family syndication investing firm which owns over $110 mill worth of real estates to date.
I am also the host of the successful podcast Investing in the US, wherein I interview industry leaders, entrepreneurs and real estate investors about their success and how they achieved financial freedom through investing in U.S. real estate.
