On today’s episode of Ritter On Real Estate, We chat with Paul Shannon and Jim Pfeifer.

Jim Pfeifer, the maverick behind Left Field Investors, who is rewriting investment rules and blazing a trail in passive investing and syndications. Formerly a financial advisor, Jim has transformed into a cash flow expert, breaking free from the standard playbook. His commitment lies in sharing his knowledge with others who are eager to explore alternative ways to grow their wealth. It is with this understanding that he founded The Left Field Investors, an organization dedicated to passive investment, thriving on principles of knowledge sharing, networking, and continuous learning.

Since transitioning to real estate investing full-time in 2019, Paul has acquired over 200 residential units, many deep value-add properties, starting with single-family and transitioning to multifamily, by recycling his equity and/or joint venturing. Paul is also an experienced limited partner, investing in over 1,500 multifamily units nationwide.  These experiences have led to the formation of InvestWise Collective, a customizable fund aimed at helping investors diversify out of traditional markets into passive real estate opportunities. Welcome to the show Paul and Jim!
