How to Get Infinite Returns in Apartments with Elaine Stageberg, Ep. 496

Elaine Stageberg, MD, MHA is a psychiatrist, mother of 4, & Owner of Black Swan Real Estate. She owns & manages a portfolio of over $330M in assets under management. Through real estate investing, she reached financial freedom in her 30s and now helps others to do the same; Black Swan has delivered exceptional returns to hundreds of passive investors through their unique investor-focused private equity funds which enjoy no sponsor fees whatsoever, 100% return of capital to investors before any splits, and long-term returns and tax advantages, all coupled with socially conscious investing and at least 5% of profits donated to charity.

In our conversation with Elaine we talked about the use of the infinite return model through cash-out refinancing, the importance of considering payback periods when acquiring assets, strategies for managing and scaling in different markets, and the importance of keeping things moving.
