Discovering the 80-20 Principle in Real Estate Investing with Charles Carillo

In This Episode:

Today, Jim sits with Charles Carillo who was born into a real estate investing family, learning the ropes from his father, who has been a multifamily investor since 1984. Charles started his own real estate journey in 2006 with a house hack, buying a three-family property that helped cover most of his mortgage.

He continued to invest in residential properties, gradually transitioning to commercial real estate in 2009 with a small five-unit property. Since 2012, Charles has been focusing on larger apartment buildings and has been involved with syndication since 2018.

3 Key Takeaways:
  • Diversification and Wealth Preservation: Charles emphasizes the importance of diversifying investments to protect your wealth from the erosive effects of inflation. Real estate is a tangible asset that can provide stability and long-term growth.

  • Long-Term Vision: Both Jim and Charles stress the significance of adopting a long-term perspective in real estate investing. Success in real estate often requires patience and the ability to weather market fluctuations.


  • The 80-20 Principle: Charles highlights the value of the 80-20 principle, where 20% of your efforts yield 80% of the results. Focusing on the most impactful aspects of your real estate investments can lead to greater success.

Remember, success in real estate and wealth generation often comes from a combination of education, strategic thinking, and a long-term perspective. Don’t shy away from seizing opportunities, even in uncertain times, and focus on the fundamentals of your investments.
