Daniel Ballerini graduated Cum Laude from Rutgers with a MBA in Finance and Management. His current passion is investing in real estate. Ballerini specializes in residential single-family homes and small apartment buildings in New Jersey. He enjoys providing housing to hard-working families and has accumulated 73 properties, for a combined 88 rental units, in his portfolio from 2012-2017. He describes his business model as buying distressed real estate-owned (REO) properties, completing significant renovations, and then renting the properties to residential tenants in his community. Most of his residents are surprised to be able to afford such nice homes within their budget. As the founder of First Station Real Estate, Ballerini looks forward to showing perspective families his newly renovated properties. He takes pride in experiencing the excitement of his tenants acquiring their first homes and appreciates the gratitude of neighbors after he restores vacant properties on their street.
Ballerini plans to continue growing his real estate business. He has a short-term goal of 100 rental units and $10 million in property asset value by 2018. He believes that through discipline, foresight, desire, and hard work, real estate provides the best vehicle to create long-term wealth. Ballerini is proud of his accomplishments thus far and looks forward to the future growth of First Station Real Estate.
