EP 155: From Stay-at-Home Mom to Syndicator with Over $100M Assets with Kristine Jefferson

multifamily passive investing syndication Jan 22, 2021

Failures in real estate are not setbacks, but experiences that propel you further than you could have gone before. On today’s episode, we talk with Kristine Jefferson, multifamily investor, about how went from a stay-at-home mom to over 1400 doors.

Kristine started off in residential real estate until a large failure proved she was meant for more. With the lessons she learned, she pivoted to large multifamily deals and syndications. We discuss with Kristine the value in taking responsibility for your mistakes and how you can move forward, why partnering is a great option for growth, how to vet syndication sponsors, and how she’s built a successful portfolio in only a few years. Kristine also shares with us why being a passive investor first is a great steppingstone to being a project sponsor.

Kristine Jefferson is a co-founder of Mission Bay Capital Partners. They are owners/operators of over 1400 units with over $100M in assets. She manages the capital raising arm for MBCP and is a multifamily investor with over 10 years of experience in real estate investing and syndication. She holds a BS degree in Education from Radford University, Virginia.

On today’s episode, we discuss a ton with Kristine including:

  • The questions you should ask a syndication sponsor before investing
  • Lessons she learned from doing a new build
  • Why she chose to partner up to explode her growth
  • How mindset is everything and ways to fight imposter syndrome
  • Why failing is a good thing
