In this episode of the Millionaire Mindcast, we have an amazing guest, Derek Clifford who shares his real estate journe, mindset growth, the pros and cons of investing locally and out of proximity, boosting NOIs, investing personal relationships, and achieving 0 to 500 multi-family units while having time freedom to travel the world!

Derek Clifford is an entrepreneur, successful single and multifamily real estate investor, author, and podcast host of the “Elevate Your Equity” show. He is the founder and CEO of Elevate Equity, a firm that partners with individuals and companies to purchase, improve, and operate cash-flowing multifamily apartment real estate. He published his first book “Part-Time Real Estate Investing for Full-Time Professionals,” in 2019, which has helped several people get started on the path of growing their passive income on the side while working a full-time corporate job. 

In August 2021, Derek successfully retired from working as a full-time Project Manager using his growing real estate portfolio to facilitate a life of travel and unlocking the three degrees of freedom: time, location, and financial. Today, he is a multifamily investor controlling 200+ apartment units with over $20M AUM. 

Derek is a passionate educator and partner in cash-flowing real estate and has a goal of helping others achieve financial independence in leaving their full-time work situation to do what they really love with their time and resources. He does business to the next level while giving inspiration to other people.
