Main Points:

  • I got started in real estate when my wife sent my law profile to a real estate firm.  I had no prior experience.  I had one meeting with the law firm, and I got a phone call from the firm’s top lawyer who had his own real estate company with a billion-dollar portfolio.  He hired me as his General Counsel…with no experience.  Don’t assume you need experience before you get into real estate investing.
  • Why this is so important for all investors, no matter if you are just getting started or if you have been investing for decades.
  • The biggest problem with syndication (even though our law firm helps investors to set up their syndication).
  • Why I believe JVs are the cheapest, easiest, fastest and safest way to build your portfolio.
  • How to find a JV partner
