Publisher's Summary

Gold Award winner, 2018 Robert Bruss Real Estate Book Awards; Gold Award winner, Nonfiction Book Awards, Nonfiction Authors Association; Finalist, 2017 Best Book Awards in Business: Personal Finance/Investing; Finalist, 2018 Next Generation Indie Book Awards: Finance/Investment.

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.

Finished in 2 Days

Very easy to understand, detailed, lots of external resources. A great starter book for me. Brian does a great job of being realistic, encouraging, moral, and not overwhelming.

This is a must have book for any individual looking to expand into investing in commercial real estate. I read 60 books a year and only about 5 of those are books to keep as a guide to read over and over, and this is one of those books.

commercial real estate insight for the average joe

this book was amazing I think I listen to it at least three or four more times over the next couple of months. If you are an aspiring investor and think that you can only start with single family homes and small multi families... Think again and dream big, but don't forget to take small little chunks daily to get where you want to be.

Excellent down to earth book on RE Investing

Brian does an excellent job mixing educational lessons with a narrative about one of his projects (Solar Building). Unlike many other RE sources he paints the good with the bad. It is not all sunny skies in Real Estate and he does a good job of explaining this in a down to earth fashion.

Great info! Interesting stories! Expert narration

I loved everything about this book. The author includes many interesting stories including one story that gets continued throughout the book to keep you hooked. The content is well organized and is full of useful information. And if that weren't enough, the narrator is the best I've listened to in many dozens of books before this one. Thank you Brian Murray for my new favorite R.E book!

Worthy read for all real estate investors!

As an investment property owner and industry insider, I thoroughly enjoyed reading Crushing It! Brian demonstrates sound principles and sets accurate expectations for the amount of work required to achieve success. There are no quick tricks, just steps to reduce risk, fundamentals and a little creativity. If you're looking to invest in real estate of any kind, you will benefit from reading this book - I recommend it!
