Hans Struzyna Bio:

In my 30 years on this planet, I‘ve learned a few lessons that I apply to everything I do. The first is that all goals must be written down and visible on a daily basis. The second is that there’s no such thing as overnight success and consistent work is the only path to success. Finally, everything is the way it is because someone made it that way. So to understand people is to understand the world. 

I‘ve applied these lessons to my 12 year rowing career culminating as a member of the 2016 USA Olympic rowing team. After the Games, I had to descend from the metaphorical mountain I‘d spent years scaling and ended up feeling lost for the first few months. Searching for my next climb, I found real estate. I got my license six months later and have been pursuing all avenues of this business ever since. I‘m a Realtor Partner with a Wall Street Journal Top 100 nationally ranked team, The Gunderman Group. We focus on advocacy, risk management and exceeding our clients personal definitions of success. By staying true to those core values, we’re the top team in the East Bay of the Bay Area and sell over $180M per year (with over $1.5B sold in total) with an average price point of $1.2M. I’m also fascinated by real estate investing and completed my first flip during my first year in the business. My wife and I also invest in out-of-state multi family properties. I’m actively looking for my next few deals. 

I wanted to share the value of creating your own path and building a life of freedom, so I recently created a podcast called Another Way To Play. I believe that if you trade hours for dollars, you will never achieve true freedom in your life. I bring inspirational and practical content to listeners at their own personal crossroads by interviewing entrepreneurs, thought leaders and industry experts to learn how they achieved freedom in their lives. 

I recently got married to the love of my life, Kristin, who is also an Olympic rower and entrepreneur. She runs her own business and loves real estate investing and we are actively building what we call our “business/real estate empire.”
