Airline pilot Steven Rozenberg entered the world of real estate investing with jet fuel grit and a candid smile. “Building an Empire: Failing Our Way to Millions” tells how he met IT executive Pete Neubig, a chance encounter that led to a lifetime friendship and business partnership, and their journey together as struggling entrepreneurs learning the ropes one hard knock at a time. Their story is inspiring and enlightening. With humor, hard-hitting honesty, and empathy, Rozenberg tells how he and his partner struggled with tenants who wouldn’t or couldn’t pay, property maintenance issues that bit them in hard-to-see places, and what they learned along the way as they built their budding Houston-based real estate business into one of the fastest growing property management companies in the nation. Their determination, naivete, and strong bond led them to seek wise counsel with industry experts who pointed them in the right direction, and today their business has four strategically located offices with hundreds of managed properties. In “Building an Empire: Failing Our Way to Millions,” Rozenberg tells in painstaking detail what they learned, how they learned it (the hard way), and who taught them the lessons they needed to learn to succeed. In addition to being an airline pilot (he still flies today) and a property management executive, Rozenberg is an internationally renowned public speaker. In this must-read memoir, readers will learn straight-from-the-street business management techniques, marketing tips, and relationship lessons that every entrepreneur should know on their way to the top. Rozenberg is encouraging and professional as he shares his heart, his head, and his passion for overcoming the challenges and obstacles to building a successful real estate business.
