I had a pleasure meeting him last October during South East Conference for mobile home park owners in Atlanta. Raj was attending along with his mentees and shared his “secret to success”.
For the past 11 years he was able to acquire over 40 commercial properties including SEVERAL MOBILE HOME PARKS and attributes this RAPID business growth to his educational approach towards younger colleagues.
Next Tuesday we will take a deeper dive in his story, business approach and lessons he has learnt along the way!
Listen to Raj’s life story, learn and get inspired!
See you all there! ZOOM LINK HERE https://www.eventbrite.com/e/u...
Raj Dalavai, Chairman of Dalavai Holdings LLC, has been deeply involved as an real estate investor for the past 11 years.
Born in India, Raj migrated to USA in 1983 at the age of 17 and started working as a Dishwasher/Bus Boy in New York City. Raj bought his first Co-op apartment in New York at the age of 20. Raj always was fascinated by Real Estate and decided to go to School in order to learn business. Raj earned Bachelor's in Business, and MBA in Business & Marketing from New York Institute of Technology all while working as a full time Waiter in New York City. He was recruited by IBM as an SAP Consultant in 1999. While working for IBM Raj also earned MS in Computer Science and Information Systems from Pace University along with PhD. Raj prefers not to be called Doctor or use Dr. as it has been creating confusion among his wife's patients (Spouse is a Medical Doctor).
While working full time at IBM Raj started investing/co-founding multiple business such as Health Care Clinic, Clinical Research Center, Education and Feature Films (Movies). In 2009 Raj was laid off from IBM and he decided never to work for anyone and started buying Commercial Real Estate. Today Raj's portfolio consists of Medical Offices, Pharmacies, Fast Food Restaurants, Single Family houses (SFR's in India) and Mobile Home Parks. He and his wife Lt. Colonel & Dr. Lisa Pathak - Dalavai, lives along with his three daughters in Milford, PA.
