Pustejovsky was born on May 31, 1980, in Baytown, Texas. His family moved to Carver, Massachusetts when he was five years old. He grew up in a caring household and was highly-motivated to work hard at a young age.
Despite not being the brightest student, he was accepted into Vanderbilt University. Pustejovsky spent a lot of time partying and didn’t have much time for the books, he got his Mechanical Engineering degree but struggled to find work as his GPA was low.
Real Estate Career
After graduating, Phil took low paying jobs to pay the bills. At first, he worked as a valet but after applying for various jobs, he finally got accepted at the Trane Company and sold commercial HVAC systems.
Around this time, he was beginning to develop an interest in real estate. And when he decided that selling air conditioning systems wasn’t for him, he tried marketing properties. It was very difficult for him at the start.
Fortunately, someone offered to mentor him and he made many successful deals. This experience gave him the idea to be a mentor himself. He started his company and course, Freedom Mentor.
Despite his talents in coaching, Phil quickly learned that marketing was his weak point. So, he tried a new approach. He filmed videos on the secrets of real estate and uploaded them to his YouTube channel.
The videos were a success, and he continued to upload more content to keep viewers engaged. His channel mainly covers real estate advice, how to flip properties and the latest trends. Occasionally, he talks about other assets such as stocks.
Phil’s videos have received over 118 million views, making him one of the top real estate content creators on YouTube. Currently, he has over 330,000 subscribers but the growth of his channel has slowed down as the real estate market is in decline due to higher interest rates.
The accomplished investor is the author of several best-selling books. One of his most successful books is “How to Be A Real Estate Investor.” It lays out a step-by-step approach for becoming a real estate investor, regardless of one’s financial status, credit score, or level of experience.
Phil Pustejovsky’s other best-seller is “Real Estate Investing Gone Bad” and it includes 21 real-life examples of real estate investing transactions gone wrong and the lessons readers can take away from them.
Aside from teaching finances, Phil was a Sunday school teacher. There, he met his co-teacher and future wife, Monica. They dated for a while and eventually got married and have three children together. They are Caden, Blake, and Alexa.
