The Gold Collar Investor

Sep 20, 2021

In today’s show, Pancham interviews Stony Stonebraker and Lennon Lee - real estate investors and founders of Passivo Real Estate Investments.

Stony started his investing career after he retired from being an electrical engineer. Lennon jumped straight ahead into real estate investing as he started to manage properties as soon as he settled in the US. They’re indeed the epitome of “Opposites attract” as they have partnered and founded an investment firm that helps investors with generational wealth and passive income!

In this episode, Stony and Lennon will join us as they share how they came to become real estate partners and their vision as they started Passivo. We’ll also look at their mindset as they’ll share the challenge in analysis paralysis, the importance of building relationships, and working their way towards financial and time freedom!

Listen and enjoy the show!



“The reason why we became partners is because we share the vision of achieving that financial or time freedom and we just decided that this is the vehicle. Cash-flowing real estate is the vehicle that we selected.”

3 Key Points:

  1. You would never be 100% ready in investing thus investors should take action first and create changes along the way instead of overanalyzing things. 
  2. Some investors wouldn’t have the time to fully understand investing. It all comes down to trusting the real professionals to do their work and be able to learn from them.
  3. Mitigate your investment risks by having any sort of diversification - whether in terms of your investments or in terms of the team.
