Shawn Muneio of BeQuest Funds started his real estate journey while he was working his corporate career in IT Sales. After realizing he didn’t see longevity in IT sales, he dug into the world of note investing. Reading a book about note investing sparked a fire inside of Shawn which prompted him to contact the author, who is now his business partner at the firm.
