Pasha Esfandiary, co-founder and CEO of Evoke Capital, started his investing career in real estate in 2011 by flipping homes found at auctions. 

Since then, he has been involved in over $250 million in transactions across multiple asset types. Residential homes, boutique motels, large multifamily properties, and housing programs in vulnerable areas are just some of them.

He founded Evoke Capital in early 2021 with the goal of helping others achieve financial freedom through real estate investing.
