“I think industrial real estate should scare the average investor—I think that they really should go into it eyes wide open, that if they make a mistake there can be catastrophic losses. I also think there’s an opportunity to make really big gains.”

“That’s the number one thing I recommend to people—suspend the idea that you’re collecting rent and look at that property as if it were vacant. And if you can wrap your head around paying the price that you are being asked, then you can start creating fancy models.”
