Partnering with Your Community for Investments with Kay Kay Singh, Episode 156

As an immigrant from India, Kay Kay Singh believes deeply in community and taking action to achieve the American dream. He has partnered with many in his community to partner and build multiple businesses. From running gas stations, convenience stores, a laundromat and 40 SFRs, he turned his attention to multifamily for the tax benefits. Kay Kay is now a limited or general partner in 2,764 units. In this episode, he shares why community is vital to his success, how he vets potential partners, and what you need to know before investing in a syndication.
