    Tweetable Quotes:
     "There are a lot of ways to make money in real estate investing. I think we need to find. For all of us out there, we need to find the one that's right for us , with this syndication business, for example, that you mentioned it wouldn't work. If everybody wanted to be an active real estate investor, frankly, if everybody wanted to be the one going and finding a deal, negotiating it or whatever, doing the asset management and nobody wanted to passively invest and passively earn in a return in real estate, then the deals wouldn't work.
    Everybody would be actively, it would just be JVs, and that's okay. It just, it takes a lot. Different people to make this business work. And that's one of the things that makes it so much fun."  - Taylor Loht

    The recent financial environment brings recollections of The Great Recession that a few of us don't really want to recall. All organizations are defenseless against monetary loss.

The team consistently sells over 100 residential properties annually ranging from multi-million dollar luxury estates to condominiums and townhomes. Primary market areas include Northern Virginia, suburban Maryland, and Washington, DC.

    Tweetable Quotes:

    " When you're starting out passive investing, it's a good chance, you don't know anybody else that's doing it. Real estate may be totally new to you. So go out and meet other people that are doing it.

     You’ll gain a lot of confidence in it. You'll gain a lot of assurance. So I think networking is really key, whether you're going to be active or passive network, talk with other people that are already doing what you want to do. " - Lee Yoder
