Geoffrey Whiteside is from Columbus, Ohio and is an alum of the U.S. Naval Academy, where real estate degrees are not offered. However, it was while he was serving in the Navy and stationed in Norfolk, Virginia, that he first got into real estate investing. He started with house hacking. He bought a home, rented out rooms to roommates, and actually made money living off his property. After returning home from an 8-month deployment, he had earned a sizable income through house hacking. That sparked his interest to continue in real estate investing. After his first full year in real estate, he closed 43 deals and had over $15 million in volume. To continue leveling up, he invested in himself, reading books, taking online courses, and finding a mentor. He also partners up with other agents to expand his investments and continues to set his goals even higher.
