Becoming A Cashflow King with Jimmy Murray, Episode 162

commercial real estate podcast

After getting a degree in finance, Jimmy Murray started studying for the CFA exam, but after failing and receiving less than stellar reviews, he decided to turn his attention to multifamily real estate. Despite the disapproval of his father, he launched Lyon Property Group which is now a 7-figure business based in Rhode Island. He also hosts the Cashflow Kings podcast to connect with real estate investors. In this episode, we talk about the Rhode Island market, property management for B, C and D multifamily properties, the 1% rule and how “Juicy” by Notorious B.I.G. allowed him to leave corporate America in infamy.
