  • How Marty got his start in the real estate business as an appraiser and broker before moving on to becoming an active investor.
  • How he ended up with 22 partners on his first multifamily deal and why he vowed to never have that many investors involved in one single deal ever again.
  • His experience with outsourcing the management of his multifamily property during a massive rehab project and why he ultimately decided to bring it back in house and do it himself until the rehab was complete and the property stabilized.
  • Why it’s usually the smallest of investors that cause the biggest problems and headaches during a syndication project.
  • The huge opportunity that exists from the huge flood of millennials and baby boomers as it pertains to rental housing, specifically multifamily.
  • The reasons that Marty suggests that buying in in-fill type markets is a much better play than purchasing apartments in markets where there is still large amounts of room for developers to build new apartments.
  • The reasons to never shop by cap rate and why it really only pertains to the exit of a property.
  • Why loopnet is considered the graveyard for commercial deals.
  • Why building a database of properties within your desired your market or markets and getting to know those owners is by far the best way to find the best opportunities.
