This New Yorker doesn’t like to waste any time, and as such, I value your time.
That’s why I’ve spent the last year of planning to present you with a podcast that will give you, our dear listeners and audience, a look under the hood of how this industry truly works.
It’s called The Commercial Investor Podcast and it’s ready and waiting for you to subscribe.
Real estate is an equal opportunity wealth creator available to everyone and anyone—regardless of background, education or experience.
The only difference between the winners and the losers in this business is how much know-how you have. That is what has always separated the grownups from the children in this business.
Specifically, commercial is even less competitive and far less regulated than residential.
However, it has also slaughtered a lot of market participants, such as buyer and mom-and-pop investors because they simply didn’t know what they didn’t know. They believed buying when the trees were growing to the sky meant that they had to get in.
They bought or invested on emotion, only to lose most of their life’s savings.
This podcast will give you the confidence you need to look behind the curtain and ask the hard questions to look at any opportunity dispassionately. The same questions a seasoned pro would ask.
Who is The Commercial Investor Podcast for?
1. The Opportunist
You see prices coming down in your market. A suburban medical office building will trade for a fire sale price.
There’s a piece of dirt for sale across the street from a parcel that a large automotive manufacturing facility just bought. You know that housing will be in demand for that plant’s workers.
You know of many people who are sitting on a combined many millions of dollars in retirement money who are scared to death of the stock market. They’d rather invest it closer to home in one of your deals.
You know that no successful investor relies on banks.
How will you put the pieces together?
2. The Stock Investor Saver / Retiree
You’ve saved and invested for the long term. You did what you were supposed to do.
You can’t retire on paper gains in the stock market. And nothing is going to provide you with the income you need to retire meaningfully on.
The mere fact that yields could go negative frightens you to the core. You don’t understand why the stock market indices are so high, when most of your friends are either unemployed or under-employed.
You’ve been though the stock market crashes of 1987, 2001 and 2008. You’ve had it.
You have always had an interest in owning commercial assets in part or whole; however you don’t know where to start.
But you are anxious now. To do something.
You don’t need to be an expert, but you want to know where all of the moving parts are.
You know there is more to this business where you can invest passively into deals rather than just relying on your ne’er-do-well brother-in-law for his seemingly “hot” deals.
Besides, if he’s pitching you a deal now, what does that say about the market?
You don’t want to be defrauded.
You don’t want to die destitute.
How can you participate in commercial real estate with a careful eye?

3. The Have-Nothings
You’ve had it, then lost it. Or you never had it.
You may have been divorced once… or twice. Or perhaps had to care for a terminally ill family member.
You’re a single parent working 2 or more jobs to make ends meet. Inflation is ripping you off.
Maybe you’ve laid off several times over the past 10 years. You’re looking for a new career. You’re too old to rehire, too young to retire.
You feel a sense of hopelessness.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
You have a plan now.
4. The Seasoned Pro
You’ve been around the block a few times.
You want some new and fresh ideas and tips, tricks and traps.
You look forward to an entertaining, yet cynical commentary on the market, with a pulls-no-punches attitude that talks about things the mainstream financial media will never speak about.
Intuitively, you know some facts and figures are lies. (For example, is RevPAR a made up, rosy number? The answer is yes.)
You want to know what the smart money is doing.
The sacred cows of money that your parents have taught you have been destroyed. Savers are losers. They have been since after the horrific events of September 11, 2001 when the Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan cut rates dramatically.
We’re in an uncertain world. Things have changed. And normal is a word that is hardly said anymore.
Financially speaking, no matter where you are in life, you’re living in a finance-based economy. And that means more than likely the odds are stacked against you.
Whether you’re a millennial in thousands to hundreds-of-thousands of dollars in student loan debt, or a retiree with a multimillion dollar 401(k), there are headwinds that effect all of us.
The divide between the rich and the poor is growing faster than at any time in this world’s history.
The reason for this is simple. Most people are too distracted by reality television shows to be concerned with their own financial well-being.
And that’s the way it has always been designed to work.
Let us not underestimate the multibillion dollar entertainment industry disguised as politics.
No, you’ll never hear that in the USA Today™, The New York Times™, nor CNBC™.
There’s a reason why the powers that be like to keep you distracted. Because a distracted populous is an easy to control, manipulate and… keep in indebted servitude.
From the price increase to your morning coffee, to the price of a 4 year college degree, to the 0% interest rate credit card offers you shuffle around each month, you’re not the winner here.
Our monetary system wasn’t designed to have you benefit. Until now.
