Michael Leshinsky, Founder of Leshinsky Finance, started out after undergrad buying and building franchises up and down interstate 95 in MA when he noticed a bubble was forming and sold them for 200% return on investment. The trick is to continuously reviewing cap rate or yield. NOI/Value and when the yield is below a certain threshold you sell. In the meantime he was in grad school, getting his MBA concentration Finance Modern Portfolio Theory Investment Analysis.
Michael took the proceeds from the sale of the businesses and invested it in real estate at a 50% discount due to the housing crash which today is up 100% from purchase price on his balance sheet. As buying real estate decided to go for second masters in real state valuation, finance and underwriting, while holding the real state he worked at an accounting firm that transferred to an incubator in Boston called MassChallenge. He worked with Harvard grads that wanted to start their own business; his practice grew and now works with bigger clients in terms of annual sales. He also still invests in real estate, does real estate development, and created a small hedge fund.
While recalling his experience of the foundation of Leshinsky Finance, Michael says, “We followed the key values like, Brand recognition, our vast network, impeccable work, 100% success rate on raising capital, among knowing powerful politicians and private equity players globally.”
Further he adds, “We don’t have a strategy, we haven’t found a company that can provide the same quality of work, with that said, we should have a strategy. I am sure there are other companies that do compete.”
Reflecting on the future of Leshinsky, Michael asserts, “We want unlimited growth potential done correctly and meeting and helping all the different types of companies and people.”
