Danny Kalenov is a real estate expert and fund manager.
Since 1999, he has analyzed, purchased, and repositioned a large variety of income-producing real estate assets. Now, Danny is the Founder, Principal, and Fund Manager of Diversus Fund. Diversus was born out of Danny’s frustration with the volatility of the stock market, and the realization that relying on stocks alone for stability in retirement was largely a game of chance.
“If you pay 5x less in Nashville for the exact same home, you’re not going to get 5x more in San Diego for that same home.”
“There are two key considerations that I would look at before making [short term rental] investments, the first one I market and the second one is team.”
