Refitting Professional Skills – Project Manager To Asset Manager – Justin Fraser

Justin Fraser is an apartment syndicator, asset manager, and real estate investor responsible for managing multiple apartments across the country.

Justin Fraser has been a real estate investor since 2014 when he bought a single-family home as a rental property. For years Justin flipped houses and owned single-family rentals until May of 2018, when he formed 88 Real Estate Capital and closed on his first apartment syndication, raising over $600k for the deal.

By September 2018, Justin exited his corporate job as a Project Manager and jumped full time into real estate investing. He found some excellent partners and is an active member of 6 apartment complexes holding over 1000 units. Justin built an asset management business, responsible for running the business of these apartment complexes. 

He is also the host of True Multifamily, a podcast about the business of apartment investing, showcasing the real work that happens after a deal closes. His goal is to share insights, tips, tricks, and best practices through storytelling by real asset managers and owners.
