Long overdue. Thank you, Michael.
This review is years overdue. My journey started as a fan of Michael's excelent podcast. I went on to use Michael’s Syndicated Deal Analyzer underwriting program. Later I had the honor of guesting on this show. Eventually, even got the opportunity to speak at his conference this year.
I started as a fan of this incredible podcast.
Michael gives knowledge, generously. His intent is well placed. He leads of authenticity and humility.
As an interviewer, Michael is a great listener and takes the time to prep for his guests. The commercial real estate industry would do well to take a lead to the way Michael leads with values and transparency.
