I appreciate you taking the time out of your day to visit my website. My name is Charles Carillo, I’m a licensed Florida real estate professional, an Eagle Scout and I first became a multifamily real estate investor in 2006. I am originally from a small town in Connecticut and moved to Florida in 2012.
While I was growing up, my father owned dozens of commercial and multifamily properties that he self-managed with a small team. This experience was priceless in shaping my future business and real estate investing career.
During college I started an online payment business which took me to dozens of countries in Europe and Asia to meet partners and clients; forging my passion for traveling. I ran my online business full-time until 2016 when I decided to switch my focus to my real estate investing company. It forced me to hire assistants and start delegating tasks for both businesses. This transformed both companies by freeing up valuable time that could now be used for “high value” activities.
Unlike other real estate investors that take a “hands off” approach to property management, I self-managed my properties for years before hiring my first professional management company. During that time, I learned the intricacies of dealing with; tenants, contractors, superintendents, brokers, lenders and attorneys. I purchased and renovated multifamily properties; some completely vacant, and turned them into profitable investments that I still own today.
In 2016, I founded Harborside Partners, a real estate syndication company that offers other active investors and passive investors alike, the ability to partner with us and purchase larger, more profitable assets. Currently we are invested into over 250 units, worth over $25 million. We have designed an easy to navigate website that delivers volumes of free education along with a blog that features educational articles and the latest real estate news.
Additionally, I host a real estate investing podcast called Global Investors Podcast. After years of traveling the world for work, I realized that there were many foreign investors who were interested in investing into U.S real estate but did not know how to go about it. My podcast focuses on international (and U.S investors alike) looking to invest into cash flowing U.S real estate and features detailed essential information in interview format from; attorneys, active investors, passive investors, syndicators, bankers, brokers, real estate professionals etc. who work with U.S and international investors.
For international investors looking to be setup in the U.S to invest, we are able to walk you through the process and direct you to the correct professionals to make the process as simple as possible; click here for more information.
