Meet Real Estate Investor, Reed Goossens
G’day! My name is Reed Goossens, Thanks for stopping by and checking out my website. I am a real estate entrepreneur, investor, 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 of my life. 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. In my former engineering life one of the career highlights was being involved with infrastructure development of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London. I have also worked all over the world as an engineer including Australia, NYC, Los Angeles, Fiji and Europe.
I moved to the US in 2011 for the love of two things: Firstly, My wife (at the time my GF) and secondly the big apple, NYC! Within the first year of living in the US I had purchased my first duplex for $38,000. 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 RSN Property Group, a multifamily syndication investing firm which has been involved in the acquisition of over $60 mill worth of real estates to date. I have also launched the podcast Investing in the US – An Aussie’s guide to US real estate in early 2016, wherein I interview the cream of the crop within the real estate industry to better educate other investors who want to break into the US Market.
I am a true Aussie at heart, down to earth, and I definitely live up to the ‘never say die’ Aussie spirit when it comes to being a successful entrepreneur. If you want to get in touch with me, simply use the contact form below, or send me an email anytime.
Thanks for reading, and Happy Investing!
