Bryan Cataldi is an accounting professor and real estate investor who specializes in renovated cabins in the Tennessee area. While working as a professor at Western Carolina University, Bryan has been renovating several cabins throughout his market and is continuing to grow his number of investments everyday. He preaches the importance of mindset and discipline in achieving goals, and is a true example of the power of possibility that can come from overcoming self-inflicted roadblocks and life’s everyday challenges and not letting them get in the way of success.


Avery speaks with Bryan about how he got started in the real estate market and how the pandemic created a radical change in his career path. Bryan speaks honestly about the roadblocks he overcame, and how being symbolically backed against a wall can lead to radical change. They go in depth into the intricacies of rehabbing units, specifics of long term development projects and dealing with long term residents. They discuss the sacrifices people need to make when entering the real estate world and the true commitment that it involves. Bryan and Avery also speak about the methodology of choosing which units to purchase, and how personal opinions or reservations should not get in the way of biting the bullet and making a decision.
