An Investor Profile: An Inside Look at Gino Barbaro

Gino Barbaro is a realtor and investor who has become an authority on multifamily investing. Some of you may already know Gino from Jake and Gino Podcast, the incredibly popular podcast that Gino hosts with his business partner Jake Stenziano. The two educate fellow real estate investors via their real estate investment coaching company,

A Multi-Faceted Real Estate Investor

Gino Barbaro is a New York based investor. Personally, Gino has 15 years of experience in the real estate industry. In just three of those investing years, he managed to expand his portfolio to include 675 units. In addition to being a successful investor, podcaster, and entrepreneur, Gino is also a life coach: a Certified Professional Coach educated by the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching, to be exact.

On top of that, Gino is also the author of two best-selling books. The first is most likely to be of interest to real estate investors— Wheelbarrow Profits: How to Create Passive Income,  Build Wealth, And Take Control of Your Destiny Through Multifamily Real Estate Investing.  Written in a clear, easy-to-follow, how-to format, the book takes new investors through the process of growing their portfolio beginning with their very first multifamily investment. If you’re an aspiring multifamily investor, it is definitely worth adding to your research list.

While you might expect Gino’s other best-selling book to be about investing, the subject matter is actually a radical departure. But many investors with cooking talents or curiosities may also be interested in Family, Food, and the Friars, Gino’s Italian cookbook and food-related cultural commentary collection.

When Gino isn’t investing, podcasting, or advising his fellow investors, he is a complete family man. He loves spending time with his wife Julia. Together, they have six children: Laura, Cecilia, Veronica, Sofia, Michael, and Gabriella.

Connecting with Gino is simple. If you’d like to learn more about his work or reach out to him directly, simply visit either of his websites:
