When Vinod Chopra came to the United States from India more than 40 years ago, he had only $7 in his pockets. But he knew without a doubt that the opportunities offered by this country were within reach because he had a vision for his life plus the commitment to learn, work hard and sacrifice to achieve those goals.
With a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering, he entered The George Washington University to seek a master of business administration degree in marketing and advertising. He sold Bibles and educational books door-to-door to support his studies, excelling both in the classroom and outside because of his work ethic and overwhelmingly positive attitude.
There’s a reason Vinney’s nickname is “Mr. Smiles,” which is evident even through just hearing the demeanor in his voice! He has always believed in individuals’ ability to shape the world around them through positive thought and selfless actions, and he has been a passionate motivational speaker and teacher for over three decades. After getting a taste of sales and marketing while pursuing his MBA, Vinney decided to leave engineering altogether and become a motivational speaker and fundraiser. He worked tirelessly to build clientele that would work with him annually to raise the funds to meet their goals and dreams.
He became intrigued – like so many other people, perhaps even you – with the challenge and benefits of public speaking, fundraising for non-profit organizations and real estate investing. He earned his real estate broker’s license on the first attempt and has dedicated his career not only to mastering the field of fundraising and motivation through speaking engagements and the art of building wealth through real estate investing, but more importantly, to sharing that knowledge and expertise – and his passion for doing good – with others.
Vinney Chopra has achieved success in a number of arenas: marketing, motivational speaking and real estate investment. He manages four successful companies that include Moneil Investment Group, Moneil Management Group, Multifamily Academy and Youth Academy. His diverse experience has allowed him to gain sharp insight into acquisition, syndication and property management of multifamily properties. He has developed proven techniques and strategies for multifamily syndications that have earned impressive returns for his investors and his companies.
Vinney’s diversity of experience in Multifamily arena makes him unique . He has successfully completed 35 syndications and has over $500 million in his Multifamily and Senior Living Portfolios. He has his own Property Management company with 60+ personnel and has over 6000 units under management.. He is the actual deal maker who walks his talk..
