Dan Blackwell’s Real Estate Journey

Dan Blackwell’s Real Estate Journey

Dan Blackwell saw opportunities in real estate, but his path wasn’t easy. After the 2008 recession brought the market to a halt, Dan moved across the country for a new job — at one point living out of his car — and lost the investment properties he’d purchased in his home state of North Carolina.

Still, he was determined to succeed. He’s now a broker and executive vice president at CBRE in Southern California and a multifamily investor.

“You just have to look at the opportunity we have to get into real estate, to grow, to build wealth. And that’s something that I’m really passionate about,” he says.
