Cliff was lucky enough to find his passion for real estate early in life. At the age of 17, Cliff was running a property management office. At 18, he obtained his real estate license and was renting apartments in Brooklyn, New York.
By the time he was 23, Cliff graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst with a bachelor’s degree in real estate and entrepreneurship. While in school he acquired five investment properties. Cliff continues to mentor students at UMass and maintains ties to the Amherst community, where he lectures at the university's entrepreneurship classes.
