📌Check out the ultimate passive income guide

In this episode of the Apartment Investors Podcast, guest Dr. Jeff Anzalone shares his journey from being shackled with student loan debt just out of residency, to becoming ardent about investment in real estate and eventually becoming a successful deal sponsor.

He tells of the transformative effect of books such as Robert Kiyosaki’s ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’ had on his mindset, leading him to focus on creating multiple income streams. Dr. Anzalone also discusses the organic growth of his digital platform, Debt-Free Doctor and its instrumental role in scaling his apartment building investments, and subsequent transition into RV parks and mobile home parks investments.

On looking forward, Dr. Anzalone hopes to fully transition out of dentistry and focus on expanding his real estate footprint, especially through his syndication partnership. He concludes by offering practical advice for anyone aiming to build their investor base and encourages audience members to visit his website to connect with him or suggest topics for future discussions.

📑More about Jeff Anzalone

Dr. Jeff Anzalone is the founder of DebtFreeDr.com

Like most people, Dr. Jeff dealt with many failures and setbacks along his path to success. Only two weeks before completing his surgical, and dental residency, his plans fell through to join a group practice that he was relying on to teach him how to run a business.

This left him with no job, an interest-only mortgage, a two-month-old, and nearly $300,000 in student loan debt.

After becoming debt-free, he shifted his focus to acquiring passive income streams using real estate as he realized that his practice income was their only income.

He now uses his blog, DebtFreeDr.com, to educate doctors and other high-income professionals on how to invest passively in real estate so that they can stop trading their time for money.
