EP 388: Growing a 50 M Portfolio Without JV Partners

Aug 14, 2023


In this episode, we are going to meet the incredible Khadija Jafferji, a real estate entrepreneur in the Greater Toronto Area of Canada. She is dedicated to improving lives through financial education and utilizing real estate for financial freedom. At Savvy Real Estate Group, she oversees property operations, financing, management, and construction. With her project management skills, Khadija ensures work is done on time and within budget. She also interacts with site-level members to execute our strategy and business plan effectively.


In this episode, we explore Khadija's journey to a $50 million portfolio without JV partners. She shares key lessons on delegation, education, market understanding, and investing in real estate. We touch on the pursuit of perfection, finding motivation in children, and her experience with flipping and buying apartment buildings in 2018. Khadija reveals her strategies for raising capital through promissory notes and managing risk in a cyclical business.



  • “It's not about the goal; it's about who you become in the pursuit of that goal.” (17:04 – 17:13)
  • “People often underestimate the significance of operations. Numerous syndications are crumbling around us and the cause of their downfall lies in their inability to execute a business plan. Everything appears flawless in theory; the feasibility, however, hinges on the expertise of the person you invest with." (30:17 – 30:43)
