Professional: The Mindset That Shapes Moshe’s Decisions

Moshe Popack and his wife, Yaffa, launched their business in 2011 with purpose, and they haven’t looked back since.

Blessed with a keen market sense shrewdly perceiving a rapidly evolving real estate market, some entrepreneurial risk-taking, and a lot of hard work, they quickly built on some early success with residential properties in South Beach and grew their business into a multi-dimensional powerhouse.

A decade later, YMP is a sprawling and growing real estate investment and management firm, employing over 400 people, with approximately 4,000 multi-family units in Florida, North Carolina, and Kentucky; numerous assisted living facilities; partnership in a waterfront hotel in Miami Beach; and 1.3 million square feet of commercial office space owned or managed in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and New Jersey. Dedication to honest principles and socially conscious ideals, hard work, perseverance and belief in themselves and the opportunities that America uniquely provides have graced the Popacks with a successful business, and the ability to change lives and communities in the process.

YMP operations are built on the central principle of serving local communities with quality, efficiency and professional expertise to rescue distressed or mismanaged real estate situations. In addition, the business is guided by a prudent approach of setting realistic return objectives within acceptable risk parameters for each investment.

As part of this philosophy, YMP has successfully invested in two Opportunity Zone investments with strategies to rebuild and reinvigorate stagnant assets and the communities they serve. The commercial investment houses several local non-profit organizations which include child dental care, health and pregnancy centers for women, and other general health care providers. Recently, YMP partnered with Chapman Partnership to create a high-quality, long-term residential facility for homeless families in South Florida.

In 2019, YMP broadened into Senior Assisted Living and Independent Living, developing and upgrading three existing facilities, restoring the properties to their original condition and appropriate care level. As part of its business philosophy, YMP aims to enhance these properties for the benefit of its residents and the local community. Moshe Popack has a clear vision and business philosophy, incorporating integrity, social responsibility and an entrepreneurial spirit to do well by doing good. It’s no secret why YMP is today one of the nation’s fastest growing real estate investment firms and considered by peers to be one of the best places to work in South Florida.

Moshe is also proud to serve as a member of the Board of Directors for the Florida Development Finance Corporation. Appointed to the position in 2021 by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Moshe is an integral part of the team overseeing the allocation of over two billion dollars for job creation and economic growth in Florida.Because Moshe has an abundance of business and real estate acumen, he loves sharing that knowledge with entrepreneurs, small business owners, and real estate investors. To that end, he’s created his own Moshe Means Business blog and has hosted numerous episodes on his Common Denominator podcast about these topics. In these blogs and podcast episodes, Moshe shares expert tips that have personally helped him thrive and interviews leaders in this space to learn how each of them grew their portfolios. In fact, below are three episodes of the Common Denominator podcast, each loaded with actionable strategies to grow your wealth, scale your business, and successfully invest in real estate.
