Boris Sanchez is an accomplished and active commercial real estate investor, broker, lender, and educator. He has personally owned over 800 multifamily units and actively buys and sells commercial RE every month.
“I always think that active investments are going to outperform passive investments or syndication any moment, not that one of them is more correct than the other. You should be diversified in both”
Boris has been a broker and a lender in over $1 billion worth of commercial real estate transactions in his 8-year career so far. Along with his Sanmore Investments team, he plans on acquiring another $20 million worth of commercial real estate this year. Boris also personally mentors investors looking to enter the CRE arena as well as experienced investors looking to expand or diversify their real estate portfolio.
