Timothy Lyons brings years of real-world management and leadership experience to his real estate investment career. His initial goal with real estate was to create passive income and in turn, be able to spend more time with his wife and three little girls. After partnering on a multifamily property he saw first-hand the power of real estate investing as an opportunity to create passive income and build wealth for his family. We spoke to Timothy about the importance of education and networking. We also discussed a broker-dealer license and the reason Tim decided to obtain his for investing.
