Building to $15k In Multifamily Passive Income with Anton Ivanov

Have you ever wondered how someone scales from a simple house hack duplex to 40 units, raking in an astonishing 15K monthly in passive income? 


In this episode, Taylor welcomes Anton Ivanov – a tenacious real estate investor who did just that in a decade. From personalizing direct mailers to venturing into out-of-state turnkey properties to the power of local market analysis, Anton demystifies the journey to financial freedom in real estate. It’s not a ‘get rich quick’ gig – it’s about the grind, the dedication, and always being ready to learn. 


Dive into this episode to discover how a mix of grit, strategy, and consistent effort led Anton to build a thriving real estate empire. 


[00:00 – 10:02] Building a Successful Real Estate Portfolio with Turnkey Investing

  • Introducing Anton to the show
  • Analyze the market, neighborhood, property, and vendor before buying
  • Turnkey properties can be a good acquisition strategy but may not provide the best discount


[10:03 – 24:47] Success in Real Estate Through Personal Connections and Direct Mail

  • Investing in markets with reasonable price and rent appreciation over time can lead to higher ROI
  • Anton looked at off-market deals, including through personal connections and direct mail
  • The real estate market was heating up in the 2017-2019 timeframe
  • Anton used a template to write personalized letters to property owners with their name, photo of the property, and offer terms


[24:46 – 28:46] $15,000 a Month in Passive Income

  • Real estate is not a get-rich-quick scheme
  • Financial independence requires consistent effort and learning from mistakes


[28:47 – 34:45] Closing Segment

  • Best investment: two property tech companies, Deal Check and Rent Cast
  • Worst investment: spending time and energy with people who don’t add value to life
  • The most important lesson: not be afraid to start small



“Turnkey is just another acquisition strategy if you approach it correctly.” – Anton Ivanov


“Don’t be discouraged, and don’t be put off by people doing private sales. The more you network, the more you’ll be in the right place in their mind.” – Anton Ivanov


“Don’t be afraid to start small.” – Anton Ivanov
