Podcast Archive


Brayand Ponciano comes from humble beginnings and shares a bit about his upbringing in an immigrant family. It was tough for a kid growing up in an environment where gangs were everywhere, but through his personal journey, he was able to change his mindset and live a life with meaning. Brayand dives into why he prefers Multifamily over Single Family, and how he first got into multifamily properties.

  • Brayand used to judge people all the time based on what they were wearing or the privileged life they seemed to be living.
