Axel Ragnarsson Bio:

Axel is an active real estate investor and is based in Boston, MA. He purchased his first multifamily property during his sophomore year at the University of New Hampshire where he earned degrees in Finance and Entrepreneurial Studies. While at UNH, he was a founding member and Co-Managing Director of the Rines Angel Fund, the first and only undergraduate student-managed angel investment fund in the country.

It was in his studies of alternative investments that he became interested in real estate investing, leading to the founding of his real estate investment firm, Brickleaf Properties, and is continually searching for new multifamily properties and communities to invest in. Currently, Brickleaf Properties owns approximately $7.2M in multifamily real estate, has flipped numerous homes, and has been a principal party in $18M+ worth of transactions.

Axel is also the host of The Multifamily Wealth Podcast, which is one of the most highly rated multifamily real estate podcasts in the industry.

โ€œYou’re never going to know everything at any stage of any business you’re in because there’s always another levelโ€- Axel Ragnarsson


โ€œThere’s always something more. And you’re never going to know exactly what you need to do to get there. But somebody has done it. Right. So go find that person that’s done it. And, you can copy and business, right? It’s different from school. You can cheat on peopleโ€ – Axel Ragnarsson


โ€œWhen you’re really intentional about what needs to be done in your business to continue growing it, it becomes a lot easierโ€-ย Axel Ragnarsson


โ€œ This stuff takes time, understanding that if you pair consistency with patients, you’re going to get great results. Just keep plugging away on a daily basis. Figure out what your most important next step is to get to where you want to go. Just do that as many days in a row as you possibly can, and then just be patient and understand things are gonna happenโ€ – Axel Ragnarsson
