The 6 Figure Flipper With Matt Aitchison - Learn From World Class Investors on Flipping Houses, Buying Rentals & Wholesaling

Jun 18, 2018

Text Summary:

Today we are joined by Vinney Chopra.  With a nickname of “Smiley” Vinney brings his positive attitude to every situation and person he encounters.  In this interview Vinney talks about having a positive mindset, the importance of “Pre-selling” to capital investors and how it is important to recognize that every person you interact with has the potential to grow your business through referrals and recommendations.  



When Vinod Chopra came to the United States from India more than 40 years ago, he had only $7 in his pockets. With a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering, he entered The George Washington University to seek a master of business administration degree in marketing and advertising. He sold Bibles and educational books door-to-door to support his studies, excelling both in the classroom and outside because of his work ethic and overwhelmingly positive attitude.


Vinney turned his attention to multifamily investing and syndication a few years after becoming an active commercial real estate broker in California in 2004. Building his business from the ground up Vinney has done 26 syndications – 12 of them in the last 24 months – and now in many cases is able to raise $5 million to $10 million for his offerings in only a few days.  He is a systems guru (in the best sense of that term!), having designed proven systems of underwriting, acquisition, team building, presenting, syndication and management of multifamily investment properties. Vinney’s companies have controlled more than $172 million in multifamily assets.
