Jesse (0s): Welcome to the working capital real estate podcast. My name is Jesper galley. And on this show, we discuss all things real estate with investors and experts in a variety of industries that impact real estate. Whether you're looking at your first investment or raising your first fund, join me and let's build that portfolio one square foot at a time. Ladies and gentlemen, my name's Jennifer galleon. You're listening to working capital the real estate podcast. My special guest today is George Roberts. The third George is a data scientist and a principal at horizon multi-family as well as real estate investor and syndicator, or he focuses on value, add opportunities in central Florida, George, how's it going?
 
George (41s): Excellent. And thank you for having on the show, Jesse. Yeah,
 
Jesse (45s): Well, I'm happy to have you on, we were talking a little bit before the show. We heard you on the syndication show with Whitney Sewell. If you haven't listened to that podcast, it's fantastic. But George, you have a podcast of your own. Maybe before we get started, you can tell listeners where they can find that.
 
George (1m 3s): Sure. We're located just about everywhere you find the finer podcasts. We've got Spotify, apple. I love to find it on audible as well. So just take a look. We're also on YouTube. You can find us at the horizon multifamily channel. So it's called the Foundry where leaders are forged a daily. And I like to talk not just about a commercial real estate, but also about entrepreneurship in general. And that's, that's where we get the theme. The idea that entrepreneurship is an outstanding proving ground for leadership talent.
 
Jesse (1m 36s): Fantastic. Well, you have a bit of an interesting background, I would say, not a lot of data scientists on the show. So maybe for listeners, you can talk a little bit about your background in, in business and how you got started in real estate.
 
George (1m 50s): Yeah, sure. Well, I guess just to back it up two steps, I'm a recovering PhD. And so one of the things that you can do with an unused PhD is go into data science. That's possibly the best, best part to, to go into it. If, if you have that sort of analytic background, but how did I get into real estate is really, I just wanted something that was going to give me time to spend with the family. So I went more and more towards computer science that wasn't doing. It realized that entrepreneurship was really where I belonged started out maybe 11 years ago as a landlord, just loved that cashflow found that to be an amazing place to be help my sister launch a construction company about five years ago.
 
And I decided that, you know, this is, this is really my fate. I'm a serial entrepreneur. I just love to launch companies. I love to, to build things. And so it's the perfect place for me to be, but rather than going to the ground up, construction decided that value add is something a little bit better for me really loving my tech position. Didn't want to lose that. Didn't want to give that up. And so I wanted something that would be maybe just a little less intense, something that I could do on the side.
