“Retail was in a world of hurt pre-COVID. Right? We overbuilt retail in this country. That’s just a fact. Now, this recession is different though, than a lot of the historical recessions in that, this is very micro-market. Even property level specific.” 

“We invested in a shopping center transaction in Florida, and we were projecting double-digit cash on cash returns in the first year. This is a closed investment, not an open investment. But I think there is an opportunity in retail because of the fear, but you have to be a very good operator and you have to have very very localized knowledge. We’re not afraid of retail with the right operator and the right knowledge.”
