The Multifamily Takeoff with Shawn DiMartile

Shawn DiMartile is a multifamily real estate investor, managing partner of an apartment investing firm, Pac 3 Capital, and host of The Multifamily Takeoff Podcast, a podcast about all aspects of apartment investing.

He came to the realization that the traditional path of working in a 9 to 5 as an aircraft controller, being and saving in a 401(k) until 65 was not the road to the wealth he wanted to follow. After reading books and listening to tons of podcasts about real estate and various asset classes, he came to realize that multifamily real estate has the power to build wealth and provide financial freedom.

In 2019, while still working his full-time W-2 job as an air traffic controller, he partnered with two colleagues to acquire their first multifamily acquisition, a 32-unit in Indianapolis.
