Success Story Illustration

Today, I want to share a success story from one of my students, David P.

​​I started my life over in 2016, got back into real estate with a few crumbs of money.

I started to flip homes.

After 45 flips, I ran into Grant in San Jose, California in 2020.

He was funny, down to earth, fired up, and super motivated to be a billionaire.

That rubbed off on me and for the first time in my life, I said to myself: “I can learn from this man!” 

I started following Grant, listening to him on YouTube.

At first, I was like, “Ok, what is the catch?” 

But the more I listened… 

The more I realized how honest, straightforward, and informed all the words that Grant was saying were. They meant something of value.

So then COVID hit.

I sold a duplex, took a big leap of faith, and purchased my first 16-unit apartment complex.

All I heard was Grant Cardone: “16 units, then 32 units, then scale up 50 to 100 units.”

In my mind, I heard: “16 units, 16 units, 16 units.”

This was way out of my comfort zone.

I closed the deal and the mandatory rent freeze hit.

8 out of 16 tenants stopped paying rent.

Again, listening to Grant… “Sacrifice everything now to pay for anything you want in the future.” 

I gave up my $3,500-a-month apartment in downtown San Diego, so I can pay my new mortgage on the 16 units…

So that I covered my mortgage and the 8 tenants could live there for free.

That went on for 1 year until they started giving rental assistance.

Then, after remodeling and increasing rents from 1/1 $650 to $1,100 a month… and my 2/1 went from $800 to $1,500…

It was a game-changer.

I was then able to cash out, refinance and purchase the 16-unit next door…

Giving me a 32-unit apartment complex.

All because I started to listen, follow, and study 1 man.

Thank you, Grant Cardone.

The confidence, knowledge, and wealth of free information you gave me…

Changed my wealth, my passive income, and my life forever.

I appreciate you sharing your success story with everyone, David.

When I read a story like this, I see a true 10X Investor…

I see a person with commitment, creativity, courage, confidence, and character.

And I believe we can all learn from a guy like David.

Keep the success stories coming in, everyone…

Because multifamily real estate is not a solo sport, and we can all stand to learn from each other. 


Be Great,

Grant Cardone
