Sief Khafagi is an ex-techie turned real estate investor who has helped thousands diversify into real estate after spending nearly 5 years at Facebook where he built the 2nd largest engineering organization across the world. 1000+ hires later, it hit him: a company’s most important asset is its people.
Today, he’s the founder of Techvestor, which helps real estate investors and busy professionals passively invest in the emerging asset class of short term rentals (aka Airbnbs) and build for their lifestyle. All investors get to use the properties they invest in, further creating utility AND returns. Techvestor’s advisors include folks from AirDNA, Realtor.com and Bigger Pockets.
