Main Points:

  • If you can become an expert in how to put together a capital stack (debt and equity), you can go a long way in this business. Understand how lenders and big equity players interact and underwrite, and develop methods to clearly communicate with both sides of the coin simultaneously.
  • Income producing assets are by far the easiest and most sustainable way to build wealth in this country, and commercial real estate has proven it is the best option of all. 
  • Be a junior partner on your first few deals, and get as involved as you can even if you’re not being compensated for it. This will accelerate your growth more than anything else. 
  • Building a complementary team is by far the most critical component of sustained success in this business.
  • Never hesitate to ask for a referral. It will save you so much time and aggravation.
  • There is no substitute for managing your own rental properties, for at least short period of time.
