joeWelcome to ASotREG and my about page.

This is my personal blog where I share tips on starting your real estate career, challenges of doing your first deal, and advice on passive real estate investing. If you’re new here, check out my Beginners Guide. For work, I run acquisitions for Atlas Real Estate Partners, a private investment firm based in NYC where I was the first hire.

My Story

It was New Year’s Day 2009, I found myself sitting on my parents’ couch 6 months removed from college and unemployed. As I thumbed through the pages of US News & World Report I reflected upon what had gone wrong; I worked hard in high school, got into a good college, and had multiple relevant internships. Wasn’t this the path to success?

As I perused the magazine with this in mind, I came across an article titled 50 Ways to Improve Your Life in 2009. One way to improve your life was ‘to start a blog’.

I set up a site titled A Student of the Real Estate Game (inspired by a book I was reading), and on January 8th, 2009 I published my first post, Why I Love Real Estate and you Should Too.

For the first few months I didn’t tell anyone I was blogging, I was doing it for myself. I was forcing myself to become part of the conversation. That posture alone changed everything.

I don’t consider myself a real estate guru. I’m simply a young guy passionate about the business with a desire to share my experiences and help all of you stay on the cutting edge.

Join me as I continue to explore the ever-evolving world of real estate.


I love my work. I’m Vice President of Investments at Atlas Real Estate Partners, an entrepreneurial investment firm based in New York City. We’ve acquired 38 deals since 2010, with a combined value of $600M.

I received a Bachelor of Arts in Economics with a minor in Entrepreneurial Leadership from Tufts University. While at Tufts, I was a four-year varsity soccer player. I also received a masters degree in real estate finance from the NYU Schack Institute of Real Estate where I served as President of the Student Association.

I also love skiing, boating, golf, cooking, travel, and spending time with family and friends.
