Think apartments and commercial real estate are just for the big boys? Think again.

Brian Murray was not an investment pro when he bought his first commercial property. He was a teacher looking to build some side income. Armed with his passion for business and a lot of common sense, he developed a simple yet highly effective approach to investing that he still uses today at his multimillion-dollar real estate company.

Crushing It in Apartments and Commercial Real Estate is a beginner's guide to investing based on Murray's experience bootstrapping his way from newbie investor to award-winning CEO of Washington Street Properties. Murray shares the secrets to his success through straightforward, actionable advice that will help you get started no matter what your experience level, or how much cash you have on hand. You'll learn how to:

Find and creatively finance commercial property Grow a portfolio without any help from outside investors and without taking on excessive debt Use your small-investor status as a competitive advantage over corporate investors Identify simple, practical ways to increase profits while keeping costs low

Murray also shares real-life stories that reveal exactly how he grew his business, and the hard lessons he learned along the way (so you don't have to). Whether you already invest in real estate and want to go bigger, or you've never owned a property, this book gives you the tools and wisdom you need to crush it in apartments and commercial real estate.

Brian Murray has done a great job writing a book that both newbie commercial investors and those with more experience will enjoy and find beneficial. I own several single family rentals and a 24-unit apartment building that are all performing well, so I’m not a newbie, but nevertheless I found myself highlighting key insights on almost every page of the book. There is plenty of practical advice along with related anecdotes in every chapter, and his straightforward and relatable writing style make the reader, or at least this reader, believe that achieving significant success in the world of commercial real estate is something ordinary people can realistically achieve. The book is quite an achievement. I don’t know if Brian has written many books in the past, but if this is one of his first forays as an author you wouldn’t know it from the quality of his work.

Great resource for newbies and I’m sure veterans too!

I have never invested in real estate and had no clue that even normal rookies could do it and succeed. Brian Murray’s book helps the newbie to not only get into investing in real estate, but helping you to see that it is possible to go big. He gives you all the information you would need, including the basics that someone like me needs to get started, the best being KISS (keep it simple, stupid). I think we tend to make things more difficult than they really need to be. He also goes over all the investment vocabulary so if you don’t know something, it’s there, and he does examples of the math you would be doing so you understand how it works. He also offers a list of supplementary resources at the end of the book and the kindle version has hyperlinks to access them within the book. The end of each chapter offers the key points in case you get a little googly-eyed from the technical stuff, which I appreciated.

I was interested to purchase this book because I have been thinking about investing in property and thought it would provide me with some helpful information to get me started. I know very little about the property market and would certainly say I am a novice, and this novel was a really helpful guide that is perfect for those starting out in the property investment field or for those wanting to simply learn more about how to maximise ones success in such a market. I appreciated that the book is written by someone who started from simple beginnings, so the author has an appreciation of how daunting the property market can be for beginners and what it takes to achieve a high level of success. The book is well written and edited and is set up in a very easy-to-read manner, with key points being listed at the end of chapters so it can become a helpful, quick go-to guide in the future if I need. The book is full of helpful advice and I certainly didn’t find it to be overwhelming or confusing to read. I read this book in one afternoon and felt like I learnt a lot from it and have more confidence in how to go about investing in property. I recommend this novel to anyone who would like to know more about investing in property and for those looking for an easy to understand and accessible guide on the steps required to be successful in property investment.
