He has gone from a duplex to syndicating 76 units, and he shares about the run-up to that first deal, including finding the perfect partner – someone more experienced whom he learned a lot from and who gave additional credibility to the deal. He also walks us through the process of starting out with passive investing to becoming a deal sponsor himself, and what emerges from our conversation is the need to remain teachable and to be willing to push through the self-doubt. Educating yourself in terms of the agreements and communication is of primary importance, regardless of whether you are the sponsor or investing in someone else’s deal, and he shares about taking it one step at a time and not being put off by the fear of the unknown. Be sure to tune in for today’s talk!
